  • CMS suggestions for drag and drop/visual building that are dev friendly
    Take a look at it's not a UI drag n drop but it's very dev friendly imo. - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • Headless CMS recommendations
    Your requirements seem a little different to mine, but it sounds like you simply need something for a static-site generator? If so, perhaps check out - it'd be a once off payment and there's some commercial e-commerce add-ons available for it too. It also has a GraphQL API (read-only). - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • The world outside of WordPress
    It's big and overwhelming and sometimes scary. But you know what? It's also fun, engaging, and very refreshing. Because I'm a DevRel, I don't have many chances to focus on something particular. Still, I'm having a lot of fun exploring different CMSs (like Statamic, Craft, or Sanity), new approaches (at last, I understood why the headless approach is so important), and diving into tech I never used before (hello... - Source: / 4 months ago

  • Launch HN: Payload (YC S22) – Headless CMS for Developers
    Congrats on the launch! Great to see more forward-thinking CMS solutions hitting the market. We've been using Statamic[1] (built on Laravel) which is also a package that's sits atop the framework so you can build your app how you like and side-load CMS features. It also features an API. The whole platform is steadily improving despite being a small bootstrapped team behind it. If you're looking for something like... - Source: Hacker News / 7 months ago

  • Would my site run faster if I abandoned Wordpress and 'rewrote it from scratch'?
    For this particular use case I would go with Statamic for the bulk of the site and Spatie Laravel Comments. Drop the shared hosting and run it on a Digital Ocean droplet. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • Look for direction, wanting to make websites for clients.
    How comfortable are you with learning PHP? WordPress is the obvious choice due to it's popularity (but with it moving towards a full-site editing experience it isn't as fun to work with anymore IMO but that's just me). You could also look into things like Statamic or October CMS which are supposed to be very nice to work with as I believe they're both Laravel based. - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago
  • The company I work for is migrating to Wordpress and I don’t know what to expect
    I’d suggest to them, much better IMO than WordPress paired with any ‘page builder’. - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago
  • Gatsby + Laravel as an API
    If you are looking for a CMS that is Laravel based and works as Headless CMS with GraphQL (or Rest) Statamic is your best friend. You will most probably need the Database Driver for all those records. Also since its just a Laravel package you can easily write a migrate command to import the old content ( We have done this in the past and its fairly simple ). - Source: Reddit / 10 months ago
  • What is the best headless CMS which supports content blocks?
    I'm looking for a headless CMS solution that offers a good content editing strategy. I'm used to working with Statamic and Processwire, both of which allow you to create your own "Content blocks", which can be re-used by the editor / user and are set up in ways which allow you to define them. - Source: Reddit / 11 months ago
  • Statamic Starter Kits vs WordPress Themes

9 Reasons I Think Craft is the Best CMS on the Market Today
Craft CMS is simple, minimalistic, agile and has every capability a modern CMS framework needs. Over the past ten years we have worked with every CMS you could think of (Wordpress, Drupal, Rails+ActiveAdmin, Ghost, Weebly, DjangoCMS, Jekyll, Joomla, Tumblr, Squarespace, Expression Engine, Statamic, Blogger)… here are the reasons why we’ve landed firmly with Craft as our №1 choice.
Goodbye Statamic. Hello Grav.
Statamic wasn't free, but was only a small $29 fee for a site license. Recently, the guys behind Statamic updated to version 2. Unfortunately, there was a major price hike moving to version 2, of what appears to be $199 - which I wasn't really prepared to pay. In addition, I've never had a search solution for Statamic without shelling out another $100 for a search plugin.
Migrating to Statamic
Although I am a big fan of Jekyll, on this occasion I decided to go with Statamic. This was mainly driven by ease of publishing using Statamic control panel. Statamic control panel provides ability to manage content anytime anywhere on any device. Now all I need is a browser with internet connection. With Jekyll I was limited by publishing workflow which requires more than a browser.
