That's a good question: I'm not a Zope developer but I've been hosting several Plone sites (including my own) for about 5 years now; and I am *extremely* happy with the stability and security Zope+Plone offers.
Despite a couple of attempts by me, I never could start developing with Zope. For me, as I have a solid Java background, the complexity was, as you can clearly see why, not a problem :-) The main stopper for me was that there were hardly any documents out there! They were mostly either old or incomplete or didn't exist at all. PS: Please correct if things have changed...the last time I tried Zope development was more than 2 years ago. -- Bahman Movaqar http://BahmanM.com - https://twitter.com/bahman__m https://github.com/bahmanm - https://gist.github.com/bahmanm PGP Key ID: 0x6AB5BD68 (keyserver2.pgp.com) On 03/04/2015 02:00 PM, Sebastian Tänzer wrote: > Hello ZOPE community, > > we're still developing websites using Zope2 + ZMS3 (www.zms-publishing.com) > for years now and never ran into any real problems (compared to, let's say, > Wordpress, typo3, Drupal etc. which had serious security problems over the > years) and our clients are quite happy with ZMS. > > A few days ago on a barcamp the discussion lead to Zope and the usual > comments, i.e. "Zope is dead", "I would not use that", "Too complicated", > "Too old", "Outdated",.... and so on. > > My personal opinion is, that Zope2 is still rock-solid and gets the job done. > I've never heard of any serious issues compared to the big competitors from > the PHP or Java world.
