As a part of Sloth project I came across the need to embed Vue into a page as a widget. As it has been more of a struggle than expected this post needed to be written.
Every project needs to be organized in one way or another. There isn’t one ideal way, so most projects are organized suboptimally according developers’ abilities and experiences. It’s a hard problem, we, developer, have been trying find best way to do it since 1970s, so no judgement here.

(It’s only November thing, I promise.)
As my migration process from WordPress continues I want to talk about things that gave me some headache in WordPress’s export file.
Last year I started working on SlothCMS, it’s still in progress but it’s completely different project than when it started.
A year ago when I started with SlothCMS I had some plans. I failed all of them. In this post I’d like to talk where and why I did failed.
