Matt Mullenweg criticizes that it took a month to create two pages with the Block Editor, saying it’d take a day with Wix.

Matt Mullenweg, the creator of WordPress, questioned why a revamp of the WordPress homepage and download page took weeks to almost finish when the same project would take one person only hours to complete using a website builder platform like Wix or Squarespace.

What happened is that a group of WordPress contributors decided to revamp the WordPress home and download pages using the WordPress block editor as a showcase for what could be accomplished with the new editor.

Everyone commenting on the proposal expressed that it was a great idea to use the WordPress block editor.

But a month later, Mullenweg questioned why it took a team of WordPress developers weeks to create just two pages.

He wrote that he had a hard time imagining one person taking longer than a day to finish the project with Software as a Service (SaaS) website builder platforms like Wix or Squarespace.
