OctoberCMS — it Suits you as a basis for web-Studio?
Interested in the opinions of those who have chosen this CMS as the basis for a project Studio (upd1: to replace the Joomla and WP, i.e. projects which are many). What are the rakes and pitfalls. I.e. now for example in our Studio for the basis of Joomla, of Course, use other CMS, depending on the task, but the bulk of tasks it sites and business portals. Joomla certainly cope with this task, but really it's all "ugly" in terms of development, maintenance and scaling. Loved October, it resembles a MODx but it is more functional and elegant, it holds the power of Laravel, etc. But for some reason very little information about this CMS, the Russian-speaking forums are half-dead, the impression is that this CMS as if you do not trust. If there are people who chose her and effectively utilize, develop my doubts please!
upd1: For those who do not understand or have understood wrong, let me explain further:
I have been working at web Studio as a programmer, I'm not going to open my own web Studio and certainly not trying to boast about! Please do not try to humiliate me for my question, sorry if I hurt they feelings!
I just want to hear the opinion of those who are already working with OctoberCMS, not to waste time, because this this resource to help each other or not?
We already use Joomla, WP, Bitrix, HostCMS, MODx, etc. choosing the right CMS for the task.
For complex orders, we use Laravel.
Just the same Laravel pointed to the OctoberCMS, which by the way involved our compatriot Alexey Bobkov. I just wondering the opinion of those who took to their arms the CMS in a real fight, and makes her work projects. We have had to face in practice and what are the nuances?
October for you will be the perfect option, given that you are already working with Lara.
Juna enter once or twice. Lots of plugins, ease of development, customers rejoice the admin area.
Well, the plugin Builder is my favorite. Simply works wonders. Something similar to Pods for WordPress.
With him conveyor design of standard functionality (e.g. modules directory, gallery, Billboard, etc.) becomes tehlikeyi copy-paste. And given that it is made possible to export in the form of plug-ins and install in October through the Project ID, it is just Paradise for WebStudio.
So for small-medium projects strongly recommend.

If you ask such questions, you and web-Studio is not necessary. Work a couple of years.

Projects are not doing on this CMS, but worked with her. Learned about it 2 years ago. It is now little known, as it is in beta testing. Soon as I know release. For beta testing it's good they have developed this cms.. is the Code elegant, functional - elegant appearance - elegant and comfortable. My eyes are happy when working with this cms. You can do the same websites, almost not getting into the code, which is very convenient and cool. Yes, and the big advantage is that he has done for Laravel. I repeat: soon release, and they already did everything well. After the release, I think, will have much more cool. So I suggest You at least try to do a couple of projects on it. If you really would do it well, then why not take it to develop Your orders?

Web Studio based you need to have at least three leaders of CMS, preferably five, of course. And a few frameworks) Well, it certainly is if you not a programmer
Under a specific site is to select what you need, somewhere wp is better somewhere open-cart

I have it one of the favorites. Along with the recognized leaders(VP and Jumla) and getsimple cms for landing pages, there is still a couple of(but in no case did not Drupal, in a nightmare not needed).
If You kopeeshnaya orders that do not need in the future to scale up the portals, then October is good. It is a modern product that takes into account many details that otherwise would have had to cut.
Because advisers that suggest to use frameworks can safely answer that You will use Caravel, which is now one of the leaders in the market.
Quite a good choice! But, of course, is to understand under which tasks fit this tool. If You mainly websites and business portals, then October may be a bit inappropriate for such tasks too cumbersome for the first(there do not need such redundancy code and the backend!), and too lightweight for a second(he is not comfortable will in the end for content managers).

Web-Studio which does not know what cms to use, what's next? Meat which asks how to slaughter livestock?
p.s. Why do you need CMS? Take a better framework.

Not good. At all.

Joomla have to clean up.(and don't tell anyone that developed something on it)
MODx it is also desirable to remove.
WP - design.
Drupal sure srednyachek.
LAREVAL - top the fact that right now there.
And for Octyabrists(also remove it, as I understand it uses LAREVAL) not very popular(very few ready-made solutions, the addition, updates and General information, etc., etc.)

Depends on what you do. Classic Studio is a design and advertising for Commerce. Bitrix/Modx/your admin and a good salesman.
bridget.Ste answered on July 8th 19 at 12:39
The order is: Wordpress, Joomla, Bitrix and frameworks... But 2-3 would be enough for the Studio...

OctoberCMS Is a CMS which is made by one person, but open source and it offers support for a Fee in extreme cases. I would chose her because she is not common and the client for finalization of the site will come to you it will be on the needle + lot of plugins and themes, and other CMS he will go to Milan and there he will make 10 times cheaper, but not since October, I've chosen Lara and watched on this CMS, there is little in the Ru segment specialists who work with this and almost one NV freelance sit

I must say: not worked with OctoberCMS and don't know if it's good or bad.
But wouldn't svazatsa either with her or with the other popular CMS is not enough. Limited to Bitrix, Drupal, Worpress.
1) CMS should regularly get updates, t h and safety. If you believe the previous author, October supports one person. Suppose it will find a vulnerability and will begin to exploit and the author of the CMS are sick, going on vacation, will be too busy and will not be released during the patch, you yourself will be the hole to eliminate all customers?
2) the CMS should be a good active community to make difficult things has always been one to consult.
Do not even need to consult, at least to Google in case of some problem, what is veratnet to find a solution to your problem in the search engine for October and for Drupal/Joomla/Worpress.
Compare the forum activity October, for example, the forum of the same Drupal.
3) regarding the opinion: "But the client has not come off, tons of specialists on OctoberCMS not found"
To hold customer-specific technology - the last thing. If the result does not satisfy the client, he will not spare money to redo the site again, but the bitter experience this time will order on Joomla/Drupal/Wordpress, to be independent from the expert/Studio. And in the long term it would be still cheaper. There can of course be individual cases where in the website invested millions, and it brings billions, and every gesture is a risk. But this is the exception and the sites are written either from scratch or on the framework.
Not saying anything about OctoberCMS, it can be secure, fast, scalable. But until it becomes mainstream - it is not necessary to build the business, except for myself to play. However, it rocks and other CMS, is widely known in narrow circles.

Well, I would advise for web Studio to use ImageCMS - perfect engine like website, business cards, and business portals. Joomla, WordPress in the basket.
