HTML5 vs WordPress: What are the differences?
Developers describe HTML5 as "5th major revision of the core language of the World Wide Web". HTML5 is a core technology markup language of the Internet used for structuring and presenting content for the World Wide Web. As of October 2014 this is the final and complete fifth revision of the HTML standard of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The previous version, HTML 4, was standardised in 1997. On the other hand, WordPress is detailed as "A semantic personal publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability". The core software is built by hundreds of community volunteers, and when you’re ready for more there are thousands of plugins and themes available to transform your site into almost anything you can imagine. Over 60 million people have chosen WordPress to power the place on the web they call “home” — we’d love you to join the family.
HTML5 belongs to "Languages" category of the tech stack, while WordPress can be primarily classified under "Self-Hosted Blogging / CMS".
"New doctype", "Local storage" and "Canvas" are the key factors why developers consider HTML5; whereas "Customizable", "Easy to manage" and "Plugins & themes" are the primary reasons why WordPress is favored.
WordPress is an open source tool with 12.6K GitHub stars and 7.69K GitHub forks. Here's a link to WordPress's open source repository on GitHub.
