How does Butter compare to Wordpress?

Butter is a simpler alternative to Wordpress that lets you develop CMS-powered websites faster and with less costs.

1. Butter is 10x faster to setup

Butter has a simple API and intuitive SDKs optimized for developer productivity. Give Butter a try and if you can't get implemented in 10 minutes we'll send you a Starbucks gift card.

I've tried other API-based CMS’s. I liked their programs, but I got yours up and running the fastest.

2. Out-of-the-box support for blogging

Butter supports blogging out-of-the-box with a user-friendly blogging interface that your team will love.

Just wanted to let you know that Butter is awesome. 5 minutes to set it up and write a sample blog post, that was it.

Jeff Judge, Founder of Bright

3. Butter is blazing fast

Don't let API requests for content slow your website. Butter's API has unbeatable performance using the Fastly CDN and our API is designed to make sure you never need to make multiple API calls to render a single page or screen in your website.

Our blog is loading just as fast or faster than it had been on a high-end managed WordpPess provider. Couldn’t be happier.

Luke Brean, Founder at Legally.co

4. Butter is more affordable

Butter offers premium features like uncapped API requests, localization, and flexible user roles at a fraction of the price compared to Wordpress.

Simple, intuitive, and just works!

Our customers

Wordpress was too slow and impacting our business. Butter is more performant and a faster alternative. A no brainer.

Drew Johnson, App Partner

I'm very impressed with ButterCMS and Headless CMS. I'm looking forward to a more accessible web as a result.

Lee Conlin, Distinction

I have to say, your API is incredible! Probably the most powerful and simple to use I've tried.

Kalle Marjokorpi, Innofactor

After several attempts at implementing a blog engine into my app, I found Butter. It’s the best!

Maggie Summers, Sasquatch

Our client's blog using ButterCMS is now live - the whole thing took ~1 hour to launch, just fantastic.

Jonathan Hacker, Arcane Four

Integrating Butter couldn't be easier. Now I finally have a great CMS that I can run right inline with the rest of my code.
