There is also a third choice, a more comprehensive solution –so-called CMF systems, which stands for content management framework. Drupal 8 is one of these systems.
What is the CKEditor? It is one of many visual HTML editors. It allows you to easily enter text using an interface that resembles such editors as OpenOffice. It makes text formatting easier through a set of buttons that serve, among others, for things such as:
