New ‘latest & greatest‘ React frameworks are released almost daily, Frontity is different. Mainly because Automattic, the group behind WordPress, backs them. Not just figuratively, but literally as big investors.
How does Frontity work?
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. You can keep editing your content in WordPress while Frontity serves a static site to give you a huge performance boost. It’s a server side, dynamic framework for headless WordPress sites and blogs. Here’s how it works:
Frontity is a cinch to setup.
Frontity gives you a big head start by providing many of the common queries already built in. There’s zero setup, everything is already wired up (React, Webpack, Babel, Routing…) so that you can jump straight in and start creating your site. But that’s not all:
- It does Server Side Rendering (SSR) right out of the box
- Works great for dynamic content & SEO
- It’s lighting fast since it renders static sites
- It has a flexible extensibility pattern similar to WordPress
- It’s used by millions of readers, learn more
