  1. @schnarfed not sure what to think of this. On one hand it might push more webhosts to support β€œanything other than PHP” which would be great, on the other hand it’s probably going to add to the oft-parroted nonsense that PHP is inherently a bad language.

  3. I can’t see this working out. PHP has a /much/ lower barrier to entry, it’s the reason so many people can just get stuff done with WordPress while on the way to becoming better developers.

  4. I personally am looking now for a Node-based cms as there is lots of random interesting prospects available. I like WordPress but I don’t know how that would turn out on Node.

  5. Combine: a NodeJS version of WordPress, NoSQL DB, and MAIDSAFE… awesome is only the first thought. WP plugins would be an issue, but resolves itself in time.

  6. From what I researched, they only converted the front-end admin for sites on WordPress.com and for self-hosted blogs using the Jetpack plugin. I can’t find any plans to change the server-side technology away from PHP. Can anyone else?
