Content management systems are no doubt a pillar for the internet, empowering non programmers to build websites. However by their nature such CMS solutions tend to bring a ton of features that are not going to be used. Worse these features sometimes are even a hinderance when one needs to build something a bit more unique and custom. As such building a custom website with a CMS is a bit like being a stone mason working from a gigantic hunk of rock. The Symfony CMF proposes a different approach for such use cases.
