I need to go through it in detail but, after looking at a bunch of tutorial videos, it would seem that, there’s a few differences with TCMS:
- less flexibility with the Admin section (which could be good, for some). If droplets are analagous to macros, you could set up a TCMS admin page to allow a user to edit multiple at once and save them together, (whereas Alloy it’d need to be done one at a time).
- I’d think layouts with the actual blog posts are more flexible in TCMS. (Again, this is just off first glance)
- Alloy requires Foundry. TCMS is independent of framework.
- TCMS also has a bunch of other stacks that go with it but - past the ‘blogging’ components, they’re not really comparable products as Alloy isn’t marketing itself as a total content management system
I’m hoping to look into a little bit more this weekend. There’s a specific job coming up that might have a blog component, which it seems fully capable of doing that well. I am curious though how it can be repurposed, though, as most clients don’t seem to have an interest in blogging, once they find out how much time it takes up.
