Just a thought but there’s two ways this feature could be interpreted.
- It could be about a dashboard for frontity itself
Personally I’d be curious to hear what kind of functionality that would give. The big advantages of Wordpress lie primarily on the user experience side when creating content, while most of what frontity is handling is the website and server itself.
- Another possible interpretation of this is a replacement to Wordpress’ admin panel. In which case there has been previous projects to do this sorta in the past, such as Calypso which was created in 2016. It never really went anywhere though. Automattic built it to try to start transitioning the WP community over to more JS technologies but it never really caught on.
In my opinion, a react based frontend for wordpress post creation etc would be great. But then, at that point what’s the point of really having wordpress at all?
IMO, the only thing I’m sticking around with wordpress for is Gutenberg. I think Gutenberg is great. I know a lot of people hate it. But I think the block editing thing is the future and they’ve done a recently decent job of creating the editor and making it easy to create new components.
If there were a CMS that was JUST Gutenberg and nothing else, then would be really cool. People have already taken Gutenberg and migrated it to Drupal link but I’d love to see something like Gutenberg with the custom field abilities of Directus
