    In this last and specific case I was working with a Laravel application that needs to interact with a WordPress site, and as both works from different Compose projects, I need to add a custom configuration to allow internal requests between them, what get easy to do with Laravel Sail, simply adding a extra_hosts configuration to the docker-compose.yml file but was impossible to do with wp-env and probably will not be implemented as we can see from this Github issue.
  • Why Everyone Hates WordPress

    The meteoric rise of plugins like Advanced Custom Fields (which is still an excellent plugin and serves it’s purpose very well), and page builder Themes like Divi, was a result of a gap in WordPress’s page editing abilities. And while these things may have been absolutely necessary in the past, with the introduction and integration of Gutenberg into WordPress core, that is no longer the case.

    Gutenberg is attempting to be a Frontend / UI style site editor (example here: ). An amazing example of this type of editor is Webflow. Lesser examples include Square Space and Wix which is what these other plugins, Divi/Elem/Avada/Salient do is provide professional templates that allow users to build from. These push WP from simple blog to an actual website experience. You can think of them, and Webflow imo, kinda like photoshop for websites, or maybe Figma for web development. They allow designers to learn a tool instead of CSS / JS. What I think the WP theme builders really excel at is getting something that looks modern and fast really really quickly. I'm happy to talk about the market and who builds licenses for the WP theme builders but this post would be a book! haha.

    Vanilla WP is excellent for beginners who aren't trying to do anything fancy, in fact I think its one of the best things to ever happen to the web. Yes there are exploits etc but that comes with all software. But most other software doesn't run something like 30-40% of the web though so their bugs are really magnified. Same goes for the WP plugin theme builders I mentioned above.
