  • Ask HN: Your experience of using an alternative to WordPress?
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-09
    WordPress elicits strong opinions among developers. Whatever your thoughts about WordPress, it remains the leading website builder among the myriad site builders available.

    Uniquely (I think) it is the only self-hosting option which is relatively simple for non-technical users to install via one-click installers (available via hundreds of hosting companies).

    What are the alternative website builders (self-hostable) that match or exceed WordPress in terms of core features? In particular, alternatives with modern codebases, with customisation, and a GUI WYSIWYG (not markdown)?

    Some example, modern alternatives I'm aware of:

    - October CMS (PHP, Open Source) https://octobercms.com/

    - Craft CMS (PHP, Paid) https://craftcms.com/

    - Kirby CMS (PHP, Paid) https://getkirby.com/

    - Ghost (JavaScript, Open Source) https://ghost.org/

    - Wagtail CMS (Python, Open Source) https://wagtail.io/

    Have you used any of the above (or any other) as an alternative to WordPress? What was your experience like? And has anyone gone back to WordPress after trying an alternative? Thanks

    If you’re in a newsroom that wants to standup verticals, I recommend using Wagtail instead of WordPress. It doesn’t have any of the issues that I posted above. I also really like the content editing; it’s every bit as slick as WordPress’.
