WIP: check back later for a coherent version…
In the beginning…
In my previous incarnation as a freelancer there were three main frameworks that dominated the realm of Content Management.
WordPress, Joomla and Magento. These respectively regarded as Blogging, CMS and E-commerce frameworks.
However, somewhere, at some point WordPress fell into toxic goo and mutated into something so much more.
The latest promising offered to developers by it’s RESTful superpowers would be Headless, or decoupled, WordPress themes.
Are they better than the traditional PHP predecessor and what’s the pros and cons of this method?
What’s the time implications, what’s the benefits and how does it compare to trusty WordPress theme frameworks like Understrap?
