I have a new project that's been going for a month or so and now I have a new client as well. Both have been taking up quite a bit of time, so I haven't had time to consider what I want to do here yet. This post will just be my brainstorming session. // Begin Brainstorm

Clay took so long to build that it has always been a constant catch up to stay up with the times. It's still fairly modern, uses reactive javascript, and I've never seen a PHP CMS at it's scale that is faster (I've benchmarked). It's just been another PHP CMS, which isn't bad, but people like to diss on PHP.

I believe what I want to do here is something more like the headless CMS, but I want to build the head too. I know that doesn't make sense, but what I mean is: I want to build a service that provides structure, but isn't cognizant of the data. Then, the data can come from anywhere and it can come together anywhere. It takes the modern API/Headless CMS and splits it into a third channel to provide more control.

I control the data and the display, while the platform does the logic. That's the new platform I want to build here. End Brainstorm //
