I thought for sure that I would avoid using the WordPress editor at all costs over at rudimentarylathe.org. I figured I'd use MarsEdit or iA Writer or Ulysses or anything but Gutenberg. It hasn't happened that way. It's easier and simpler to just edit posts in WordPress. Nothing to configure. Nothing else to manage or install. Plus, I don't need to enable xml-rpc on the server. Whodathunk?
