WordPress’s Conservatism: The Best Worst Thing
At the end of last week, there was a bit of action on the front of the WP (JSON) REST API finally and fully arriving in WordPress core so it can be used universally by plugins and projects without the need for installing an extra plugin.

I have opinions on that matter, but this is not an article about them. Rather, it’s an article about why this didn’t really surprise me, and where my lack of surprise comes from. This topic has been on my ideas list for a long time, and these events just pushed me to finally publish it.
