Gantry 5 is packed full of features created to empower the development of designs into fully functional layouts with the absolute minimum effort and fuss.

Cross-platform Support

The new responsive Gantry 5 framework is available for WordPress 4.2+, Joomla 3.4+ and Grav 1.0+.

Intuitive YAML-driven Configuration

YAML is a human-readable data serialization, making it easy to create and configure blueprints for back-end configuration options.

Twig Templating

Gantry 5 utilizes Twig to make creating powerful, dynamic themes quick and easy.

New Administrative Interface

Gantry 5's administrative interface has been completely rebuilt from the ground up to meet the needs of tomorrow's developer, today.

Infinitely Customizable

Gantry 5 is the most customizable and powerful version of the framework yet, featuring drag-and-drop customization controlling virtually every aspect of the site's layout and design.

New Particles System

Featuring drag-and-drop functionality that gives you the power to place content blocks, resize them, and configure their unique settings in seconds. Load layout presets or duplicate the layout of another Outline with a click of the mouse, and customize virtually every aspect of the page layout without ever having to touch a text editor.

No Programming Experience Necessary

Adding and moving positions, resizing blocks, and more can be done with drag-and-drop simplicity in the new, powerful Layout Manager. Error pages and other areas of site design are also easily handled in Gantry 5's administrative interface. You can change almost any aspect of a theme without breaking out a single editor.

Powerful Menu Editor

New Outline System

Theme overrides are now part of Gantry 5's Outline system, enabling you to easily create and manage Layouts, Settings, Styles, and more and assign them as needed.

Functionality

Many possibilities through a nice administration environment.

Ease of use

For so many possibilities and the inheritance feature that it supports, it can't be easier.

Support

I believe this is also good since there is live chat room.

Documentation

The documentation has answered my questions so far.

I used this to: I use it for websites where a custom template is required. Also I use it because of the clean and well organized html code it creates and the easiness on the design customization.
