Congrats. But have some confusion. Will, we do not get any official frontity updates in future? There are a lot of core packages that need to make the frontity better.

I don’t know what to say. This is good news or bad news for frontity :neutral_face:

Hi @santoshdevnath15, we understand that there’s some uncertainty while we help to transition the project, but we feel positive about this opportunity and the possibilities of Frontity Framework. This can help bring more participation and discussions, which can also make the project better.

While our team explores the opportunities around Gutenberg and full site editing, anyone interested in contributing to the current Frontity codebase can reach out to us.

It was a great project, let’s hope it inspires some great forks.

There are alternatives, like faustjs based on react already. This would be an opportune moment for a fork based on the faster and lighter sveltejs framework.

Hope frontity doesn’t die a silent death, since the updates have slowed down and the team has been reassigned to work on Gutenberg instead.
