Why Drupal is Losing Out to Yii

While you must be quite taken by Drupal, but using the Yii framework can bring about a realization that Drupal has limits, some of them being starkly noticeable. Yii manages to efficiently cover all the grey areas and gives you a platform that adds a lot of features to what you were already enjoying with Drupal.

Whenever we bring up the names of the best CMS that have made their way to the market, Drupal is certainly going to be ranked among the very best. The suite of features and benefits it comes furnished with raise the quality bar of your site, and help Yii developers you take their website places.

However, technology never ceases to throw alternatives at you. And be rest assured, some alternatives are pretty darn good. As for an alternative to Drupal, let Yii step right in.

Itâs not hard to be quite taken by Drupal, but using the Yii framework can bring about a realization that Drupal has limits, some of them being starkly noticeable. Yii manages to efficiently cover all the grey areas (that include susceptibility to attacks and intricate structure) and gives you a platform that adds a lot of features to what you were already enjoying with Drupal.

Letâs look at some tangible benefits with Yii over Drupal

Pre-Loaded Tools and Libraries
For the starters, giving shape to a website proves to be a fruitful exercise. But when you attempt to stud your website with more features, you bump into unfathomed difficulties. Drupal requires learning complex codes to add functionalities to its structure. Now, for Drupal programmers already adept at writing codes, it hardly poses a problem. But for folks with a non-programming background, it can get really chaotic looking for codes on the Internet and including anything that they deem useful. Yii, on the other hand, saves you the pain. For novices to the programming world, Yii offers a pack tools and libraries which give you a stronger hold over how you wish to add more dynamism to your applications. The simplicity of execution doesnât come with any compromises. The libraries unfold for Yii framework developers a line of functions that eliminate the need of writing codes while you are building your app to reach the next level.

Saves Time and Resources

As we said earlier, you perhaps didnât realize it till now since Drupal had you totally worked over by its full of zip features. But digging a little deeper, Drupal actually makes you exhaust far too many resources and than you would have bargained for. The more in-demand website you are creating, more demanding the framework gets. It wonât bother you much if you are just intending to create a personal blog that isnât supposed to create a stir as far as the incoming traffic is concerned, but when you are eyeing a website that drives in huge number of visitors every day. Building such a website on Drupal would mean investing a ton of time and money, as compared to building the same website through Yii. Yii can help you integrate some extremely handy modules that are not all too greedy.

Drupalâs Redundant Modules and Features
Itâs only natural to expect the on-hand CMS to equip you with ground-breaking features. However, when the functionalities fit more in the category of âclutterâ rather than belonging to the category of âfeaturesâ you know those functionalities arenât adding any value to your endeavor. You would want the extra features to serve as an aid while you aim for higher goals. But when those superfluous features start reflecting poorly on the site, you know you have to get rid of them. Each feature in Drupal is supported by a large number of php applications, adding to the crowd and to the complexity. This is again where Yii comes into play since it offers you what you want, skimping on the pleasantries. For instance, Yii offers you a special RewriteRule, using which you can recreate images the way you want, and there is no need to call the index.php file too.

Managing Database Dilemma
If you arenât convinced yet, try this: Drupalâs much famed Content Construction Kit serves more as a liability than an asset. Organizing and structuring the database becomes achingly long and complicated, thanks to the speckled queries that hardly serve any purpose, other than adding to the frenetic setup.

The Yii framework developers vouch for the methodical and clear cut way of doing things with Yii. And when these combine with high performance, avant-garde security mechanisms, and the provision to add customized plugins to get the choicest of functionality, all of it makes Yii one banged-together vehicle.
