    Project mention: Ask HN: Your experience of using an alternative to WordPress? | | 2021-04-09

    WordPress elicits strong opinions among developers. Whatever your thoughts about WordPress, it remains the leading website builder among the myriad site builders available.

    Uniquely (I think) it is the only self-hosting option which is relatively simple for non-technical users to install via one-click installers (available via hundreds of hosting companies).

    What are the alternative website builders (self-hostable) that match or exceed WordPress in terms of core features? In particular, alternatives with modern codebases, with customisation, and a GUI WYSIWYG (not markdown)?

    Some example, modern alternatives I'm aware of:

    - October CMS (PHP, Open Source)

    - Craft CMS (PHP, Paid)

    - Kirby CMS (PHP, Paid)

    - Ghost (JavaScript, Open Source)

    - Wagtail CMS (Python, Open Source)

    Have you used any of the above (or any other) as an alternative to WordPress? What was your experience like? And has anyone gone back to WordPress after trying an alternative? Thanks

  • GitHub repo Infection

    AST based PHP Mutation Testing Framework

    Project mention: | 2021-02-17

    I’ve used the infection PHP library ( in an API SDK that I maintain.

    My experiences were very similar to the author’s when I first started using it. Even though my test coverage was near 100%, the mutations introduced revealed that in large part my tests were fallible due to assumptions I’d made when writing them.

    I’ve incorporated mutation testing as the final step in my CI workflow as a test for my tests. It’s a fair bit of work the first time it’s run (especially with larger libraries), but in my opinion vital as a pairing with tests.
