    Project mention: Ask HN: Your experience of using an alternative to WordPress? | news.ycombinator.com | 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) https://octobercms.com/

    - Craft CMS (PHP, Paid) https://craftcms.com/

    - Kirby CMS (PHP, Paid) https://getkirby.com/

    - Ghost (JavaScript, Open Source) https://ghost.org/

    - Wagtail CMS (Python, Open Source) https://wagtail.io/

    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

    Project mention: Fuck Magento | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-07

    I also dislike Magento, I switched to WooCommerce and I'm really satisfied with it, no issues.

    This was the issue that forced me to switch: https://github.com/magento/magento2/issues/21201

    Summary: A brand new installation didn't work even though the server passed the requirements.

    Their response was that:

    > The GitHub issue tracker is intended for Magento Core technical issues only. Please refer to the Community Forums.

    And I was not crazy, even after the issue was closed others reported same problems:

    > I have exact same issue. Already wasted one whole days , then saw this post.

    > I have the same issue. Wasted whole day on it, did fresh install twice. Then came to this from another report that was closed.

    > have the same exact issue, first use of Magento. searching for a solution without luck.

    So, multiple people had problems fresh installing Magento on a new server, Magento installer says installation is successful and all requirements are met, then it proudly redirects you to your broken home page.
