Jeff Waugh shares his thoughts on Another new era of WordPress. His comments on the new WordPress API interest me most:
One of the things I love about WordPress is that you can make it look like anything you wish. Most of the sites I’ve worked on don’t look anything like traditional blogs. WP-API kicks that up a notch.

Great example of using WordPress as a Web Application Framework: The Lift team re-worked the WordPress admin into a project management application for Frito Lay: Frito-Lay Creative Project Management App – Lift
One of the biggest tasks was re-skinning the admin. We removed all WordPress branding and converted it into a white-label, custom CMS. The front-end is redirected to the admin and requires user authentication to sign in and use the app. Once logged in, a custom logo and admin bar greet the user with a soft color palette and refreshing design. The traditional Publish metabox has been completely replaced with a custom one which factors in the custom workflow mentioned above.

Muut is really hard for me to type. Putting this post together I accidentally typed “mutt” three or four times. But, it looks to be a really slick embeddable forum solution.
Muut is the only embeddable community platform in the market that’s not based on iframes. It becomes a seamless part of your website, brand, and overall experience. Since it’s a collection of HTML elements sitting right on your page, it can be styled normally with CSS. A separate static site is generated for search engines to get the full benefits of SEO. ~ muut – Commenting and forums for your site.
