I started using WordPress again this week for the first time in years. Color me impressed.
I had spent years doing WordPress development and I’d occasionally write my own posts. Last time I used it everything felt antiquated.
But this editor. WOW. It’s so nice that I couldn’t even imagine wanting to use another CMS.
It’s likely that developing for it still has a lot of the same difficulties, but this is true of any old codebase. If the post editor is any indication of how the code is changing then I have to imagine it’s improving.
Further, unlike previous times where I had to fiddle w/ a janky host or try to remember how to configure my server this time I just used Laravel Forge which has a one click WordPress install.
