Gutenberg wird WordPress nachhaltig verändern

Morten Rand-Hendriksen ist der Meinung, das WordPress-Projekt „Gutenberg“ wird WordPress nachhaltig verändern, weil es das Content Management System in einen Viewer (im Sinne von MVC) verändern wird.

Right now Gutenberg is a replacement for the content editor, but that is merely the tip of a large iceberg. The concept of block level editing will soon migrate to the customizer and eventually to the entire application. […] Think of it this way: Right now when you go to WordPress you are there to write / copy+paste content and hit the publish button. In the future, after the fulfillment of the Gutenbergian revolution, you will go to WordPress you’ll go there to create views by writing some content and/or pulling in different blocks of content to form a whole. […] In simple terms, it is a shift from WordPress as a platform for publishing content to WordPress as a platform for managing views.

Das mag ja alles super sein, aber diese potentielle Änderung birgt auch in Rand-Hendriksens Szenario eine nicht zu unterschätzende Gefahr. Eines der wesentlichsten Argumente für die Nutzung von WordPress, die Community, bricht auseinander:

The introduction of the REST API and Gutenberg will likely lead to permanent fractures and possibly sharding off between different segments within the WordPress community and user base. […] What I predict will happen is once Gutenberg is rolled out WordPress’ role will shift from that of the default application for anyone who wants to build some sort of website to the best solution for those who want to build an advanced website. […] bloggers will likely migrate to other (mostly hosted) solutions to avoid the complexity of WordPress, and I expect many smaller sites will do the same.

Kann sein. Wird wahrscheinlich so sein, Medium (und andere) punkten ja jetzt schon mit genau dem Argument der Einfachheit. Oder das alles ist Clickbait, wie schon im ersten Kommentar zu Rand-Hendriksens Text zu lesen ist.
