What is the JAMStack missing to compete with Wordpress?

The JAMStack is on the rise and I love the development environment it provides, but in the freelance world it is not the preferred option. Right now Wordpress is king. What does the JAMStack need to compete?

No need of devops (no CI etc), JAMstack lacks of plug & play plugin system, good CMS editor

Hmm I guess using headless Wordpress might fix the CMS issue.

I see your point about devops

WordPress is easy to maintain. Any non-technical people can write content in it editor without any additional service. You have wordpress, good and user-friendly admin zone and simply editor.

JAMStack as I see needs additional services like Forestry an so on. And they has limits so you pay for writing you content and push it to your JAMStack-project.

With WordPress you just write! Free and easy.

IMHO if this problem would be solved JAMStack has chances to spread the world.

I think many Headless CMS's are becoming more and more friendly. Only issue is convincing the client haha
