Why should you build your site with Apostrophe?
It's not just about the user experience of editing the site.
- Create flexible templates with sections that can expand to accommodate different types of content. Apostrophe lets you define areas in your templates and set options for the content they support. Allow your clients to add content without damaging your design.
- Extend the capabilities of the CMS with your own custom modules and content slots. Want to add new functionality to the CMS? It's easy to create your own in-context editable components.
- Wield the power of the best PHP framework on the web. Apostrophe is an extension of the Symfony framework, so using it to build your site gives you access to a wealth of development tools. Pretty cool.
