Ghost vs Pagekit: What are the differences?

Developers describe Ghost as "Just a blogging platform". Ghost is a platform dedicated to one thing: Publishing. It's beautifully designed, completely customisable and completely Open Source. Ghost allows you to write and publish your own blog, giving you the tools to make it easy and even fun to do. On the other hand, Pagekit is detailed as "A modular and lightweight CMS built with Symfony components". Pagekit gives you the tools to create beautiful websites. No matter if it's a simple blog, your company's website or a web service. Pagekit has a modular and extendable architecture and is built on top of Symfony components and modern open source libraries.

Ghost and Pagekit can be categorized as "Self-Hosted Blogging / CMS" tools.

"Beautiful" is the primary reason why developers consider Ghost over the competitors, whereas "Intuitive ui" was stated as the key factor in picking Pagekit.

Ghost and Pagekit are both open source tools. Ghost with 30.2K GitHub stars and 6.52K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Pagekit with 5.15K GitHub stars and 608 GitHub forks.

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.
