I am going to be publishing web comics and a web-serial soon. I am looking for a CMS which will let me do that, and add easily stuff like forums, wiki, etc. One suggestion was WordPress, which seems to have grown a blog into a CMS. If I want to do PHP programming, Drupal is also an option.
Breaking away from the horrible thought of programming in PHP, and approaching a normal language, we have Ruby-on-Rails.
Now we come to the more plausible options: Python-based CMSs. The king here is Zope, but if I go for that, I might as well go the whole nine yards and use Plone. Then I could also choose the Pythonic answer to Ruby-on-Rails: Django. Or maybe Turbo Gears?
Of course, then there’s the tempting option: Matissa. It’s not yet a CMS, but it already has enough parts to be made into a CMS.
Summary of options:
- WordPress (Bah, seriously?)
- Drupal (Please God, no)
- Ruby on Rails (But I’m not a 15yo)
- Zope (too low level)
- Plone (Maybe??)
- Django (Is it as horrible as I’m afraid?)
- Turbo Gears (The little frankenstein answer to Django)
- Mantissa (Too immature)
Help me decide please! If you have experience with any of those, let me know (either comments or e-mail would be happily received).
