Someone asked me, “Is WordPress simple?
One way to look at this begins with some statistics about the WordPress codebase. I started investigating and ran across this article at open Hub. Net
Of course, I am going to do a bit more reading to see some of the different definitions of lines of code. With that said, after reading the article below I drew two simple conclusions.
- Any code community that includes over 950,000 lines of code is not too simple.
- Exponential growth curves indicate rapid change. Rapid change is not always so simple.
From this perspective, WordPress is not simple.
