The codebase of Revolution is showing its age, and doesn’t utilize some modern PSR standards such as autoloading and namespaces, nor does it use Composer for packaging. The third rewrite of the platform, dubbed MODX 3, will move the core into modernity. MODX3 really pushes the platform forward, focusing on UX and DX for end users and developers alike. With age comes wisdom, and the entire MODX platform is quite capable, mature, secure, and extensible. Let’s wait to see what MODX has next for us!
