Monthly Roundup – July 2020

Welcome to our monthly roundup! We’re back with many interesting updates. Let’s take a quick recap!

Releases

A few weeks ago, we released the first stable version of the analytics packages:

This release includes other improvements, such as:

  • A Slot component which can be used to fulfill the “Slot and Fill” pattern.
  • New <Link> component that allows theme developers to use it without having to create one or manually deal with the router.
  • Special thanks to @nicholasio, @goiblas and @mdesignerco for their contributions. 💪

📝 Check out the release notes for more information and links to each feature.

Frontity demos

Our DevRel team has created some Frontity examples for different use cases in the community:

  • Contact Form in Footer: how to put a contact form (or any other content fetched from the WP REST API) in the footer of each page.
  • Processors: a demo that showcases the use of processors in Frontity.
  • Head Tags: this shows the use of the @frontity/head-tags package.

Community news

The team at Awsm Innovations has rebuilt their company website with Frontity and it looks great! Check it out at awsm.in.

Yahya Makarim has developed a new, cool Frontity theme for fashion or other type of blogs that make a use of images to showcase their products. 👜

Francesco Riggio started to play with the framework and made this nice working version of his blog in Frontity in a few hours: fflab.dev.

insta.zaletskyi.com is a new site built on top of mars-theme by Michael Zaletsky to display a list of links for his Instagram page.

Digo Ribeiro introduced Frontity to the WordPress São Paulo community in an online meetup and shared the video and slides in the forum. 🙌

Team highlights

At the beginning of July, our DevRel team launched a new series of videos called Frontity Talks with the goal of explaining different topics about Frontity.

  • In the last session, JuanMa and Michael go through mars-theme and the ES6 concepts that are widely used across Frontity.
  • Watch the previous Frontity Talks in this playlist and suggest topics for the next videos with the hashtag #AskFrontity.

We finally moved the Showcase page to our website! 👉 View our new gallery at frontity.org/showcase.

Other stuff

Heliblocks: this is a very interesting tool created by Jesús Olazagoitia that allows you to create and share HTML and CSS snippets, which you can later insert and customize on any WordPress page. A perfect match to use with headless WordPress.
