I have been working these days specially on changing the old docs and preparing a place to play around with Frontity: test.frontity.io.

On the following days, I will be preparing a page explaining how to contribute and getting the docs ready for the beta launch :muscle:

Hey! :wave: these days I’ve been working on updating the readme.txt of the WP-PWA plugin. I also wrote a post explaining what Frontity is, how it works and main differences with Gatsby. Will be soon published!

I’m going to be focused on preparing the new iteration of our site, so we can launch it when the beta is finally ready.

I have prepared a first version about why to contribute to open source and Frontity and how to do it. The copies and the content are not finished, but it is an initial version to share our insights. These are the links:

Hey Mario,

Good job :slight_smile:

I think it is a bit confusing that the “contributing” parent page is blank https://docs.frontity.org/contributing. Could you add a brief explanation there as well?

Yeah, totally agree. I didn’t realize Gitbook generates an automatic list. I will add a brief explanation as you say. Thanks!

I’ve finished this part :slight_smile:

Today, I’ll be working on the new website. More specifically on the copy, benefits/why Frontity section and the new “About us” page.

The first version of these tasks is finished. We will iterate through them and review the copies but they are ready for the launch.

I will continue working on preparing the community :family_man_woman_girl_boy:

I’ll keep working today on the community and think and design how is the user onboarding.

Hey! :wave:

Someone asked on Twitter how Frontity is tackling server side rendering: https://twitter.com/antesepic/status/1125494208859594756.

I think we should address this question in the new website. We can probably use the info we already have on GitHub (https://github.com/frontity/frontity/#-how-does-frontity-work). @development-team, is there anything else that you’d like to add or that we should keep in mind?

I’ve opened a new topic to discuss how we explain Server Side Rendering:


Great, thanks Luis!

I’ve been working on the site, I’ve included in the homepage all the features and benefits, it’s almost ready.

Today I’ll be working on the About us landing.


I am working on improving the docs. We are going to add a page to collect the main features of the framework and make a first version of the faq. I hope I can finish it today and I will continue focusing on having everything ready for the beta :muscle:

I’m working today in the blog post to announce the beta launch, as well as the email we’ll send to all subscribers. Beside this, I’d like to review some parts of the docs with Mario.

I have made a first iteration of the Features and the FAQ. We still have to review the copy and check if everything makes sense, but I think that is enough for a first version. Any feedback is welcome :raised_hands:!

I don’t like that much the style, but Gitbook is a bit limited, maybe it is better to invest more time once we migrate docs to Frontity. And maybe I used too many emojis :thinking::sweat_smile::bomb:. Any feedback here is also welcome.

These are the links:

Features >> https://docs.frontity.org/frontity-features
FAQ >> https://docs.frontity.org/faq

I’m on it! :raising_hand_woman:

Is it ok @SantosGuillamot if I make the changes directly on GitBook?
