Isomorphic web applications (running the same code on the server and client) are all the rage because they provide the flexibility, extensibility, and consistency needed to build large and powerful "app-like" experiences on the web. How can we create them in PHP and WordPress? The answer is NodeifyWP. NodeifyWP is a framework that relies on the PHP extension V8Js and the Google V8 engine. It allows WordPress to execute Node.js within the theme. Pretty crazy, huh? It even makes WordPress’s hooks, filters, and functions available for use within JavaScript. This talk will cover the basics of isomorphic JavaScript and using NodeifyWP.
