Feel the Thunder
Originally designed for and by Hubert Burda Media, Thunder was later released as an open-source software in 2016. This community-driven CMS is based on Drupal 8 and consists of varieties of hand-picked modules meant solely for the publishing sector. Because it is open-source and completely non-profit, a Thunder Coalition was shaped where publishers, industry partners, core team and developers share their code/modules/extensions. So everyone benefits from the coalition while giving back at the same time.
With Drupal 8 already providing a vast collection of modules that are valuable for professional publishers, it was the most obvious choice of CMS to backup Thunder. Custom modules developed for Thunder are also contributed back to the Drupal community which encourages a strong circle-of-life.
So why reinvent the wheel when you can just realign it? – Said Anthony J. D’Angelo. And with Thunder, you don’t even need to realign it most times.
