WordPress and its Possible Future

WordPress is without a doubt the Content Management System (CMS) out there. Over the years it has offered users with tons of plugins and themes for them to customise their websites according to their tastes and preferences.


WordPress has seen a tremendous growth over the years and in the not too distant future, WordPress possibly shall see some big changes. WordPress Development Specialists have always worked hard to make the best of plugins and themes to offer the user base.

Here we shall talk about three things that might happen to WordPress in the near future.

Dependency Mechanism


WordPress at some point will need a dependency mechanism. Over the years we have seen that PHP and other languages have adapted to the dependency managers. WordPress might adapt to it either by COMPOSER (Dependency Manager for PHP) or by any new given configuration.


Basically what dependency does as software, that it can resolve and also manage other libraries. We have COMPOSER in PHP, with that being said each of the libraries that support COMPOSER will have its own set of dependencies. It will regardless also make sure that other libraries too will have are compatible enough.


This will help WordPress in such a way that, every time a new plugin or theme we have to make; There won’t be any need reinvent it. If WordPress allows third-party dependencies, we could possible see quick and efficient development and much reliable security in the near future.


If you are a plugin developer this might prove to be very useful for you. Only WordPress specific plugins will be made with the help of the existing PHP libraries. We might see many plugins in the future that shall be coated with WordPress around their existing libraries.


WordPress might only be Backend


REST API is the core of WordPress; we can expect it to be backend and with total user management for your REST API based applications. Things for themes won’t change as they’ll be based upon JavaScript.


It can be said that one of the reason WordPress is successful is because of its user friendly dashboard. It becomes quite easy for any user to add third-party plugins and themes to it. If it is to extend its core, more possibilities for it to be better will fall in line. But it doesn’t seem like REST-API might change anything for that matter. Imagine building a WordPress dashboard to manage content of any company’s app with simple API around it, would just do wonders. The implementation itself would be easy.


So what this really means for you as a developer? In future it might just make you a regular theme developer rather than WordPress theme developer. Brush up your JavaScript’s before this day arrives in the future.


Dashboard will play a Vital Role

The larger portion of the cut will be seen between the backend (Dashboard as well as the plugins) and the front end (About themes) of WordPress. If WordPress adapts COMPOSER, the core might be well separated from the system as well. WordPress Development Experts often offer various guidelines for users to put right strategies to use.


Plugins will always be a part of WordPress Dashboard but to say it will be the same in the future might not be possible. It would be more regarding WordPress composer packages. It would be sensible enough to keep all this in PHP and keeping JavaScript where it is necessary.


This would help you as a WordPress Plugin Developer to write your old PHP code. There won’t be any need for you to jump over to NodeJS.

These are the things of the future and we can expect it to happen and change WordPress for its own good.
