I dreamed of it.. Gantry made it !
The only thing it's missing, it's a full css generator, not only for some element.

Ease of use

Click, drag n drop, very intuitive.

I used this to: To make a new version of my template, in more modern, and speedier.

Not compatible.


Posted on 31 December 2015
Functionality

It requires PHP 5.4; since joomla 3 requires PHP 5.3.10, the component is not compatible with the platform, it's simple.

Ease of use

I couldn't use it.

I used this to: I will use it, i hope.
Owner's reply: Joomla 3 recommends PHP 5.6+ or 7+. PHP 5.3 was released on the 30th of June, 2009 and has become unsupported a year and a half ago (14 Aug 2014).
We don't support PHP 5.3 because it's not secure and very limited. Gantry 5 is very powerful and leverage new technologies. We strongly encourage you to upgrade your PHP version, it's not a good idea to stay on such a old version.

That said, I think your review is unfair. We clearly state the requirements for Gantry 5 and your judgement about the framework has nothing to do with the framework itself. You aren't providing any valuable feedback regarding Gantry with your review, you are merely stating the obvious as outlined in our documentation under the requirement section (http://docs.gantry.org/gantry5/basics/system-requirements#server-requirements).

Don't you think?

Functionality

Gantry 5 makes possible the generation of virtually any configuration you can think of for your site. Highly recommended.

Ease of use

The ability to change configurations, add modules or positions, create new particles to do brand new things is unparalleled.

Support

Support is readily available at gitter for developers and in the RocketTheme forum for non-developers. Questions are always quickly answered

Documentation

The www.gantry.org site is incredibly well organized and new enhancements to the Gantry framework are quickly added.

I used this to: The creation of all new Joomla sites. Upgrades from previous Joomla versions are greatly enhanced by using Gantry, as the module positions from the old site can be keyed into the new site. This framework is so far ahead of other frameworks there is no contest.

Functionality

Gantry is a full fledged functional system. Allowing for quick creation of a template, unlimited module positions, responsive from the core!

Ease of use

For the noob it is quite easy to create a website in a matter of minutes with the standard Hydrogen theme and it will look stunning!

Support

The quality of the support is unknown there are many companies that can learn something from Gantry's support. Github and Chat integration!

Documentation

With a specialized extensive documentation website that is constantly updated with the latest features. It cannot get any better.

I used this to: We switched with all our new webdesign projects to Gantry a few weeks ago. Since we have nothing but joy from the framework. Our clients love it's simplicity and we love it's adaptability. The average user can create amazing website and if you need help come to the chat!
