    @jonmi well I'm going to go to namecheap for the domain and hosting and apparently it includes a website builder with good API comparability so thought I might give it a whirl!

    @lxmcf Don't lie to us. We know it's Wix.

    Trying to imagine the conversation some developers have with clients:

    Client: “I want to publish a blog about my products. I’d like to use WordPress because I’ve used it before and I understand how to publish posts that way.”
    Developer: “No. Never use WordPress. The code is messy and it’s so important to have purity in code. Pay me to publish each of your posts in my own pure way.”
    Client: “....???”

    Now, Wix, that I can agree is bad. But WordPress is a compromise we need to learn to live with if we want to be hired, especially as freelancers.

    WordPress is usable, WordPress is actively developed, WordPress allows for easy theme- and plugin-creation.

    I don't care the code sucks, it is hell of a tool to bring sites up quickly while giving my clients a neat UI to publish their stuff.. Win win!

    @nordlicht I don't deny any of that. It's just a bit too bloated for me
