      Craft CMS vs ExpressionEngine opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Sandwich Made by a prominent developer from the EE scene, Craft keeps all the great things about EE(1st-party custom fields for Content Modelling, the general "hands-off-my-HTML" approach to templating, etc), fixes the less-than-stellar bits, and heaps a huge helping of polish over it all.
