I totally agree with you.
After a period converting Wordpress sites to Gatsby with Wordpress REST and Admin, we decided to build our "React Bricks" CMS (based on React Components) to avoid Wordpress altogether.
We'll release it in beta soon; we have already used it for 3 sites and we love the new way of working with Gatsby/Next SSG and our CMS.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
