Building great sites with Craft

Craft is a new breed of content management system. Newer to the market than ExpressionEngine, Craft offers much of the same functionality, including separation of content and presentation. The beautify of Craft, though, is that It's built on the newer Yii framework with the Twig templating engine and paired with a smooth, beautiful control panel interface.

We've been tracking with Craft since it came out in beta, and we love using it. (In fact, we're running this very site on Craft.)

Extreme Power and Extendability

Craft comes with so much out of the box. Unlike other platforms that may require 10-15 add-ons or plugins to complete a site, Craft's featureset offers a wide breadth of tools, enabling us to build highly complex sites with very few additional plugins.

However not everything is included, and Craft has a powerful plugin architecture and a growing library of third party plugins when you need them.

Templates Reloaded

Craft uses the Twig templating engine, which makes building efficient front-ends on the Craft backend a breeze. The markup is completely independent from the content and plugins, so we're able to take HTML code from any web designer and connect it to an easy-to-use control panel.

That's a lot of nerd talk. But what's it all mean?

A lot of the beauty of Craft is found in the parts that only developers see, but you can take our word for it when we say that Craft is an excellent tool to build your site. And though Craft hasn't been around for long, we've been using it from the beginning, so we have a deep understanding of how it works.
