Editors' Review

by   / July 22, 2014

With the open-source Joomla for Mac you can create and update a website, blog, store, or portfolio, using MySQL and PHP to run your website. Much like modern Web browsers, the software supports extensions that add new capabilities and enhance existing ones. On the downside, additional software is needed to actually install this application, and the learning curve for using these tools is steep.

Pros

Thousands of extensions: You can enhance your work with more than 9,300 add-ons that can do virtually everything, from adding forum modules to integrating image galleries to providing you with powerful text editors and media managers. There are even extensions that allow direct manipulation of website content in a what-you-see-is-what-you-get manner.

Full control: Once you get Joomla up and running, you will be able to log in to the back-end, where you will have full control over your website: You can choose a site template, publish articles, create new administrative accounts, and much more.

Cons

Complicated installation: Once you download Joomla for Mac, you will notice that there isn't a straightforward installation method; you need to use third-party software to get the product running, which can significantly slow down the setup process.

Bottom Line

If you want to build a new website, Joomla for Mac proves to be a powerful and reliable content management system. Despite the messy setup and somewhat steep learning curve, the sheer amount of extensions available for this platform makes it a viable option, especially if you want to build a large website for a company or organization.
