- Upvoted a comment on Backdrop CMSI see Drupal 8 and newer versions as a totally different piece of software, so for me Backdrop is not just an alternative; it's everything that Drupal 7 could/should have been. With Drupal focusing on the enterprise market and "elite" developers, I have found Backdrop to be the perfect match for solo web developers or small digital agencies, and owners of sites under a limited budget. As a developer, you can come to the project with only the good-old basic PHP/CSS/JS knowledge ...no need for composer/symfony and complex workflows -> means less time spent to get things done -> means you will be able to make competitive offers to your potential customers. As a site owner, you'll still get the same feature set as Drupal 7 + most features of Drupal 8 + new features unique to Backdrop CMS. You will appreciate the low system requirements, which means that your site can run on affordable hosting plans. As a content editor, your content editing experience will be similar to Drupal, so there will be almost nothing new to learn; simply jump in and start producing content as you previously did. We are passionate about fixing all the annoying things, so you will find each new version making your life a little bit easier. As a site administrator/builder, you will see that the user interface has received so many usability improvements and fixes, that you will find it easier/faster to manage your site and perform everyday tasks. We've are doing our best to put things where you'd expect to find them, so there will be less pogo-sticking around admin pages. And if you, like me, love getting involved with the community, then you'll absolutely love Backdrop: Amazing people, with beautiful minds, and most of all, approachable, helpful and thoughtful. All that, topped with a Project Management Committee comprised by a diverse set of community members, providing a more "democratic" form of leadership, putting the community and the end users first.
