We’ve been looking for a more modern WP dev architecture and I just ran through the Frontity step-by-step guide and I’m intrigued.
I’m no React whiz but I can see that the frontity.settings.js file is pulling WP data from https://test.frontity.org – my question is, if I wanted to set up a new WordPress install and build a custom theme using the Frontity framework – what would this setup look like? How would this be run on a local and then hosted server?
From the tutorial here, it looks like the project we are creating is simply a “skin” for the data being pulled from the external resource https://test.frontity.org – essentially working with two different projects (one being the WP install at https://test.frontity.org and the other being the project you’re working on locally).
How would one go about setting up a single, fresh install of WP and then using Frontity to build a custom theme using React and WP as a headless CMS (so that my team’s devs could work in React and my team’s marketers could work in the WordPress CMS – all on the same single website)?
