XSLT based Powerful And Open Source CMS: Symphony

Symphony is a XSLT-powered open source CMS that is created with PHP & uses MySQL for storing data.

It offers a very flexible usage as the data, logic & templating layers are all independent, meaning that whatever you implement can be modified, added or removed with minimum effort.


When compared to other popular CMS applications, the biggest difference is the template engine used. It is XSLT-based which makes it possible to output much more than just web pages (dynamic CSS & JavaScript, PDFs, SVGs..).

Symphony has a light & elegant backend that helps you focus on your work with features like bulk editing, drag’n drop ordering of items & much more.

The application has a growing library of extensions (130+) which can help you improve the functionality it offers.

Requirements: PHP 5.2+, MySQL 4.1+, PHP’s LibXML module with the XSLT extension enabled
