The open source WordPress content management system (CMS) is currently the most popular system of its kind worldwide with a usage rate of 43.3% at the time of writing this article. But why?
WordPress is so popular because of several factors:

  • Ease of Use: Its user-friendly interface makes it easy for even non-technical people to create and manage websites.
  • Flexibility: It can be used to create any type of website, from simple blogs to complex e-commerce websites. Its large number of plugins and themes allows users to customize their websites according to their needs.
  • Community Support: Its large and active community of developers, designers and users provides plugins, themes and support through forums and online resources.
  • SEO-Friendly: WordPress is designed with SEO (Search Engine Optimization) in mind, making it easier for websites to rank in search results.
  • Scalability: From small bloggers to large corporations, WordPress can address their needs. It can handle high levels of traffic and can be easily upgraded as the website grows.
  • Open Source: WordPress is open source software, which means it is free to use, modify and distribute.

Considering such an overwhelming usage rate and with such structural advantages just mentioned, one must wonder if one can easily develop a successful software solution by daring to choose solutions from outside the vast WordPress ecosystem?

While WordPress is undoubtedly popular and flexible, it can be replaced by technologies based on Node.js or other technology stacks, but this will require significant development effort and experience. Depending on your specific needs and preferences, there are several alternatives you can consider, such as creating a custom CMS using Node.js, using Static Site Generators, or even using only HTML, CSS and JavaScript for simple web pages or static content.

All technologies can theoretically be used for all sorts of problems and there are undoubtedly too many technologies out there.

The most important step in successful development of a software solution is the proper definition of the problem requirements. The next point to consider is the expertise of the engineers who will match the client’s requirements with the most appropriate technological solution.
