Node.JS is cool and being with it for quite a bit of time, I am attached to it. Even so, I am really frustrated about the lack of cms that can overthrow wordpress, joomla, or maybe e-commerce solutions like Magento or even woocommerce.
Surely I tried ReactionCommerce, TotalJS and at least 20 other solutions and none of them are even close enough.

- User role management sucks. No proper guideline anywhere about how to properly manage the user roles and such.
- Theme management sucks. Once you create a theme, you are done with it, no changing it.
- In the end, everyone ends up frustrated, some pushes some PR to certain repo hoping to change, but ends up getting no response for 5 years because the previous frustrated guy doesn't care about it anymore. The others creates their own version from scratch and ends up same.
The only solution for all above always tells me to build a cms from scratch, but that will end up another abandoned project soon because it will make me even more frustrated.
PHP is bad, JS is bad, only (put language name here) is good, and that's okay. So, do you think it will take another 10 years for nodejs to be where php (...consider wordpress/magento etc) is right now?
