Description

Recreating this post
https://wordpress.org/support/topic/simpler-headless-wordpress/#post-11263860

=========================================================================================

WordPress is the simplest CMS on this planet
and its also the most powerfully extensible CMS

But…

WordPress needs a server !!!!

As we have evolved a lot in Cloud architecture
I propose that WordPress should have a simpler API powered headless cms which can be launched in AWS Lambda stack, Azure Functions stack and other cloud serverless containers
and the demand is high for developers can build applications on WordPress serverless stack

=========================================================================================
same feature under development in umbraco also

If you load core with define( 'WP_USE_THEMES', false ); you can run WordPress from CLI.

Hi @tomakali,

Thanks for opening this ticket, and welcome to Trac!

Because WordPress is built on PHP and MySQL, I don't think that what you are describing is feasible for WordPress core.

This is also a super broad ticket. If there are more specific, targeted changes that you would like to see implemented that would help you accomplish what you are trying to do (new filter or action hooks, for example), feel free to open new tickets so those changes can be evaluated on a case by case basis.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
