True. Did you know you can at least get post meta fields directly from the WP_Post objects? dev.to/vanaf1979/wordpress-access-...

I do, actually! It's not my favorite though: if you use ACF, it's usually doing some magic and formatting under the hood. I also use long prefixes.

I did one site where I where I managed to pull Blade templates out of Laravel, put an object wrapper around the WP_Query class and have it return custom extendable objects that wrapped the WP_Post class. It felt a little like Laravel.

It ended up being a nice experience, but I only used it once because I stopped doing much WordPress development around that time. I should really make that a starter theme and open source it...

That sounds nice. I would love to have a look at that! :)
