JavaScript, not to be confused with Java, was created in 10 days in May 1995 by Brendan Eich, then working at Netscape and now of Mozilla. JavaScript was not always known as JavaScript: the original name was Mocha. In September of 1995 the name was changed to LiveScript, then in December of the same year, upon receiving a trademark license from Sun, the name JavaScript was adopted. This was somewhat of a marketing move at the time, with Java being very popular around then.

What is Isomorphic/Universal JavaScript?

What is it?

A solution to a problem. JavaScript on both the server and front end.

With the advent of Node.js, JavaScript has become a compelling “server-side” language as well, which was traditionally the domain of languages like Java, Python and PHP. In web development, an isomorphic application is one whose code (in this case, JavaScript) can run both in the server and the client.

Why do we care?

That problem is costing websites which are SPAs money

What is our approach?

To create a WordPress which leverages an established WP site in a way which doesn’t compromise the established SEO and doesn’t need to be set up on a new node server on the backend.
