Hey, Mike WIlson. Your "le sigh..." was clever and funny. I'd love to crack open that enigmatic wonderland called your mind and learn more about your design history expertise. After all isn't this a friendly and inclusive community?
Do you have your own Advanced Custom Fields type solution on the backend? I haven't cracked it open yet.
lol. WordPress is a great product. The problem is there are too many "developers" out there who make short-sighted decisions. To say WordPress is in the graveyard is quixotic and foolish.
What makes you say it is in the graveyard?
WordPress is mature not old. There are a lot of reason to use WordPress. Is it beautiful, cutting edge software? No. Is it stable, with a robust community? Yes.
Should you use it to build that restful API, sexy startup product that serves millions of users supported by a giant tech team? I'll let you decide that.
I'd like to echo what was said here and add that VSCode is definitely a great option outside being a resource hog but I love Sublime Text. Simple design that gets out of the way and is super snappy.
What is that weird rectangle in the middle with the tree dots?
I enjoy reading Tobias van Schneider's newsletters and admire his design work, especially his work at Spotify. He is truly a rare talent. However, as a professional developer who has worked with WordPress since 2005, this drag-n-drop type stuff annoys the hell out of me.
I've encountered numerous clients who ask me to undo previous "developer's" wysiwyg, drag-n-drop dumpster fires. I usually decline or charge top dollar or tell them I'm going to nuke what is there and start from scratch.
With that said, I'm curious about this product. Does anyone have any experience using Semplice? Does it break the mold at all?
