Features for developers Development is made simple with Winter CMS.

Strong framework

Winter CMS is based on the Laravel framework, a wildly popular PHP framework, offering a strong base of functionality which Winter CMS builds further upon.

All of the staples of Laravel development are supported in Winter CMS - models, services, console commands, controllers and much more.

Winter CMS follows the long-term support branches of Laravel, ensuring that your projects are adequately maintained and protected from security issues for a long period of time.

AJAX made easy

Dynamic content updates and background tasks are a breeze with Winter CMS with our simple AJAX framework.

Fully control the behavior of your pages with just a couple of data attributes in your HTML, or leverage JavaScript for more flexibility and control over the handling of your AJAX queries.

Powerful plugin architecture

Supercharge your Winter CMS project with extra functionality provided by plugins. The plugin architecture of Winter CMS offers unparalleled flexibility and power over the functionality of your project.

With a robust events system, and features such as behaviors and dynamic class extensions, you can customise both in-built functionality in Winter CMS, and even other plugins, so that everything works the way you want it to.

Works with you, not against you

Winter CMS is carefully structured to work with your own build and development tools, not against them. Theme and plugin development can be done in your own development environment, with your own build pipeline.

Out of the box, Winter CMS will work with popular source control systems such as Git, allowing rapid source control and development.
