Why I Ditched Wordpress
For the longest time I've been a firm believer in minimising of code bloat. A few years ago I was tinkering with a small Swift project only to be horrified by the size of the final result. I ended up rewriting it from scratch in Objective-C which yielded an executable that was less than 1% the size of the Swift project. For what it did, I couldn't live with running a 12Mb packaged piece of software, when it could easily be written in under 100kb. This same mentality finally got to me with Wordpress.
