This week Dave and I are tossing around the idea of using WordPress to power your SaaS app. Whether this means just an easier, potentially quicker way to get an MVP up, or maybe even running the entire app long term.
There are numerous examples of this being done successfully, and I think many people would tell you that getting a site Live in WordPress is one of the simplest ways to do things like user management, create content, restrict some content to logged in users, accept payments, etc.
But, longer term the WP ecosystem may also introduce complexities that a standalone app just wouldn’t. A more complex SaaS just may be the wrong fit for WordPress.
