WordPressThere are many, many people in the real estate industry who have WordPress powered websites.

Most of those know there are two arms of WordPress. WordPress.org (self hosted, open source) and WordPress.com (hosted, not open source).

The big news today is that WordPress.com is now open source (via Ben Thompson).

That’s a big change by itself, but there is also another is a big change — it’s now Javascript based (Node & React) rather than PHP.

More details on the release can be found here.

I’ll be anxious to see what some of our industries fantastic WordPress developers do with the new set of open APIs.

PS: There is also a new desktop app for the Mac users.
