I've been wondering this for a while and always assumed they were different things, but the fact that the Context module uses CTools for its Plugin API kinda confuses me even more...

Can someone please break it down for me please? Thanks!


This is essentially a duplicate of Panels or Context module?. However, Lullabot has a pretty good breakdown on the differences, and at the end of the day, it comes down to a matter of preference (I personally tend to go with Context).


Main difference is panels context (ctool context under the hood) its for interacting in a panel's environment while Context module interact with whole Drupal site.
