If you have a website project that needs more features then a Static site generator provides (CMS features), OctoberCMS is a really decent static page CMS (No DB needed for content) based on Laravel. On the frontend it supports twig, and It also has an amazing config file (YAML) based backend interface generator plugin called Builder. OctoberCMS is much faster then Wordpress and allows you to create plugins (similar to Wordpress), but every public plugin requires a code review (coding best practices) before being published. So you don't have to deal with messy code. The community is growing everyday and everything is fully documented.
