Interesting and thoughtful article about WordPress from a philosophical perspective.

Nice post, almost glossed over it because the title made me think it was a bit basic!

Well worth a read.

"The admin dashboard is catered to what WordPress used to be, not what it IS or CAN BE. With the JSON REST API coming I’m hoping people will see the admin tool as the first thing to be completely worth gutting and starting over with. Create an interface that actually manages the content of your website, without having to fumble around between content types you don’t ever use."

"WordPress used to be great, it was the easiest way to get a basic website up and running. As more plugins were released it was easy to add functionality to those websites.

WordPress can be great again, the JSON REST API has given new life into WordPress and what can be built."
