Description

Currently I am searching a good combination on react universal app and connecting it to WordPress.
A good option to connect nodejs with php is to use the REST API, but now I am thinking to re-write WordPress database connection and WP_Query classes in JavaScript to query against database directly.

I was wondering if I am going in a good path or not.
