The team is now working on the WordPress Interactivity API, which will unblock the same
type of UX as the Frontity framework, but fully compatible with the new Site Editor.

How Frontity works

A server side, dynamic framework for headless WordPress sites and blogs

WordPress is used as a headless CMS – just for creating and managing your content

The WordPress REST-API allows you to retrieve your content and generate the final HTML

Frontity apps built with React serve your content and run separately on a Node.js server

WordPress + React made easy

Frontity connects seamlessly with WordPress so you can focus on building your website or blog.
No complex configuration is left to the developer and the number of concepts you need to learn are minimal.


Create your project

  • Create a new Frontity project with a single command.
  • Everything (bundling, transpiling, routing, server rendering…) is already configured for you.
