My strategy, in the past, has been to embed interactive CDF files into my WordPress blog for student's to use (Much like the Wolfram Demonstration Project).
As many know 1) the 'Plug in' architecture of modern web browsers is evolving (see Google Chrome and no CDF support for example), 2) the 'official' WRI CDF plugin no longer works, 3) thankfully, there is Mathematica Toolbox for WP but I continue to have trouble getting it to format correctly and show CDFs properly in Safari / Mac OS (e.g., CDF Failures, More CDF Failures, Mathematica Toolbox) and, finally, 4) WRI is advocating that we move this sort of stuff to the cloud™.
I suppose I'm all for the 'cloud™', but I'm getting really really tired of refactoring my work from various incarnations of webMathematica to embedded CDF and now to wolframcloud.com / WolframAPI. Furthermore, I venture that I have to make sure our college gives even more money to WRI to support this cloud stuff.
WolframAPI for interactive stuff really doesn't seem to cut it (at least in my attempts) because the dynamic content keeps being sent back to be evaluated, etc, so you get crappy response.
Looking through the entirety of WRI's web, SE and the Internets-writ-large, I can't find a good "ok- look- here's how to do nice interactive / dynamic content with WordPress".
So I ask of you all, does anyone have suggestions for us WordPress-bound folk? Or am I thinking of this whole cloud/API thing the wrong way?
