I just thought I’d follow up on the progress for my personal website after posting on the Introduce Yourself a while back.
I’m excited to update you guys that I have the first iteration live: https://peteraiello.dev
A little bit about the project: I wanted to learn as much as possible in terms of React and Frontity, so I started with the tutorials on building your own theme and pretty much carried on from there.
I love how easy it was to connect to WP from the install, and how geared it is towards performance.
I used some of the main features of Frontity, including actions, which I experimented with for the sticky header.
I didn’t quite get round to preprocessors for this iteration, but I’m very interested in building some of the existing page content into actual components.
Overall I think the development experience using the framework is really strong.
It’s very exciting for the community to be using React with WordPress in this way.
Here’s the link to the repo if people are interested: https://github.com/peteraiello/peter-aiello-frontity
Thanks again for making the project Open Source.
Any feedback just let me know.
