Why WordPress of the future of web development
WordPress vs. Traditional Web Development
WordPress took a kickoff in 2003, and since then, it has managed to maintain user’s trust in it. Every brand needs an online presence, and that requires a website, but not all the beginners know how to develop a website. WordPress is quite a handy solution for those first-timers as it houses built-in web themes with several plugins and catchy designs. Currently, near 1/5th of the world’s websites are using the platform of WordPress.
Hardcore developers do not find this professional. They instead rely on building a website from scratch. It might be due to their urge to test their knowledge in the field of web development, or it might be due to the difficulties they face while dealing with WordPress. For example, converting an HTML or XHTML (web languages) to PHP is quite tricky and burdensome. Still, WordPress holds its name and is quite popular among the beginners for taking a kick start.

API is an Application Program Interface, which is a communication mode between user and server to set up client web protocol. Let’s make it simpler with an example. If you added a Google Maps into your WordPress website, then you have used Google Maps API to interact with the WordPress interface.
REST is Representational State Transfer allows the communication of data and interface between two parties. When combined with API, REST-API work together to generate a set of codes which let users connect a third-party interface with WordPress.
With this handy addition, you can use a third-party app to add data, extract data, and perform other operations on your WordPress website. WordPress has added this feature to transform from CMS (Content Management System) to a more interactive Application based platform.
Gutenberg Editor (H3)
Gutenberg has recently introduced a blog editor for WordPress on version 4.8. It is still in the testing and development phase yet available for users to try out and leave comments. The default editor option is currently the traditional WordPress editor. Nevertheless, version 5.0 will have the Gutenberg editor built-in as default.
When compared with WordPress editor, it provides less distraction and more space to the writer to pour in his thoughts. Blocks can be used to insert paragraphs that are free to move up and down in the text. Blocks also carry HTML tags to cater to the Title tag and Meta Tag for SEO purposes. You can also use this feature to add blocks from text editor mode directly.
