Using WordPress as a headless CMS empowers website owners to benefit from the superior editing experience WordPress is known for while also delivering the advantages of a decoupled front-end. Those advantages include the performant, app-like consumer experience popularized by frameworks like React.js.
Frontity is one of 10up’s preferred front-end frameworks for connecting to headless WordPress instances. Among the reasons we chose to partner with Frontity:
- Frontity provides an easy to use package management interface that enables us to quickly extend the platform — similar to how plugins work in the WordPress ecosystem.
- It includes features that typically require custom engineering, such as Google Analytics integration, routing, and integration with plugins (like SEO tools).
10up is a core contributor to the Frontity framework. We are also building out our own set of packages to extend the framework, starting with ElasticPress Frontity, which integrates ElasticPress, our intelligent search solution for WordPress.
We look forward to a rewarding partnership with Frontity and contributing to the direction of the platform.
