No two applications are ever going to be the same and SilverStripe is built with this in mind. The core framework includes common functionality and default behaviors easily complemented with add-ons such as modules, widgets and themes.

SilverStripe includes a myriad of extension API's such as Extension Hooks and support for programming patterns such as Dependency Injection. Allowing developers to tailor the framework to their needs without modifying the core framework.
