Processwire is lovely
Processwire is a CMS framework that allows people to easily build a website with a great API. Even inexperienced users can do so. So I’ve been toying around with processwire and I’ve tried to build my own blog with it, and it was a success actually. I made my own theme using the skeleton boilerplate and it was great!
However, I didn’t like how poorly documented the modules documentation is. It was rough for me to create my own module, and there were many classes I wasn’t able to understand. The documentation for it is scattered and you have to put in extra effort to find them all to understand how to do so.
I wanted to make a blog module, a very simple one where I can configure the blog in only one place rather than go everywhere and tweak things here and there.
I was obsessed with having clean code and I didn’t like the fact that my skills limited me to the use of modules made by other people. Using processwire with my current skill set was not satisfying for what I wanted to achieve. Once again, unfortunately, I am going to drop my project. Maybe when I am better at PHP I’ll be able to use it properly, and hopefully the documentation would be better.
But I totally recommend it!
