Much like the other PHP-based CMS’, Sphido stands out for certain unique features that make it worthwhile on certain projects. WordPress is great for blogs & portfolios, Magento is great for eCommerce.
Sphido is great for speed and efficiency. It’s a lightning-fast CMS based on a flat file database structure.
Naturally this is not going to be the best solution for every single project. Sphido is such a small release with a small community that it’s going to be difficult justifying it consistently. But the flat file structure allows for an easier setup and maintenance.
The CMS can be installed at a break-neck speed but it’s the config, theming, and structuring that takes more effort.
If you don’t have time to learn a new CMS engine then Sphido will not appeal to you. But if you like to tinker with new stuff then why not give it a shot?
You can pull down a copy of the full CMS from its GitHub repo. Installation can be handled by the dependency manager Composer if you have that installed via command line.
Those who are lost should check the Sphido documentation or check the GitHub issues tab for related info.
