Why and When to use Craft
It features a very user-friendly, cleanly designed administrative interface that makes updates a breeze. It also features a lovely ‘Live Preview’ feature that allows you to bring up a split-screen view. This view will show you what your entry currently looks like alongside its edited counterpart – as you make changes in real time.
While it boasts a fast-developer plug-in community, the off-the-shelf install of Craft gives you most of what you need right out of the box. A limited use of plug-ins can make updating the core CMS software a lot easier. One click, in fact.
And while Craft isn’t free, it’s cost is very small ($200-300 depending on what you need). It’s also backed by a real, live company so getting support direct from the source is very easy.
