Cockpit vs WordPress: What are the differences?

What is Cockpit? Add content management functionality to any site - plug & play CMS. An API-driven CMS without forcing you to make compromises in how you implement your site. The CMS for developers. Manage content like collections, regions, forms and galleries which you can reuse anywhere on your website.

What is WordPress? A semantic personal publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability. The core software is built by hundreds of community volunteers, and when you’re ready for more there are thousands of plugins and themes available to transform your site into almost anything you can imagine. Over 60 million people have chosen WordPress to power the place on the web they call “home” — we’d love you to join the family.

Cockpit and WordPress are primarily classified as "Cloud Content Management System" and "Self-Hosted Blogging / CMS" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Cockpit are:

  • Self hosted
  • Crazy fast & lightweight
  • Flexible

On the other hand, WordPress provides the following key features:

  • Flexibility
  • Publishing Tools
  • User Management

Cockpit and WordPress are both open source tools. WordPress with 12.6K GitHub stars and 7.64K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Cockpit with 3.91K GitHub stars and 386 GitHub forks.

Decisions about Cockpit and WordPress

So many choices for CMSs these days. So then what do you choose if speed, security and customization are key? Headless for one. Consuming your own APIs for content is absolute key. It makes designing pages in the front-end a breeze. Leaving Ghost and Cockpit. If I then looked at the footprint and impact on server load, Cockpit definitely wins that battle.

10 Years ago I have started to check more about the online sphere and I have decided to make a website. There were a few CMS available at that time like WordPress or Joomla that you can use to have your website. At that point, I have decided to use WordPress as it was the easiest and I am glad I have made a good decision. Now WordPress is the most used CMS. Later I have created also a site about WordPress: https://www.wpdoze.com
