Thanks for your post. I agree that Wordpress and PHP are linked together and as long as Wordpress is around, PHP will be around. It is relatively useful, especially it’s ease of use in shared servers. It’s unfortunate though, because I find the typed variables helpful in things like TypeScript and Swift. I would love for more web hosting to start building in more support for things like Node.js, Swift or Go. They have some great features that help building web applications easier and more safely, but it can be a large overhead to maintain them currently.
