    • It's not a messy pile of spaghetti code. It uses modern tools like Composer and Twig. Guest • Jul 2017 • 4 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It is more developer friendly. The project structure is very clean, easy to configure and deploy. Using flat files instead of a SQL database might be limiting for some, but it's perfect for most standard sites like blogs, agency websites and even E-commerce. Twig for templates leads to cleaner code and a better separation of concern (Almost impossible to mix business logic in your templates). I guess the only downside is lack of plugins and templates for now. Guest • Jan 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • No database required. Every posts is saved in very simple markdown files. therojamApr 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
