Pantheon’s Decoupled Bridge

Does anyone have any information on how to set up Frontity with Pantheon’s Decoupled Bridge ?


can you also elaborate whats the main difference from this:

Hi @Kent,

Pantheon’s Decoupled Bridge It’s a new service they’re offering so for now I think you’ll need to contact them so they can help with this implementation.

What Pantheon is offering is the service for having both type of servers needed for a Fronttiy project (PHP for WordPress and Node.js for Fronttiy rendering engine) in their servers. This setup requires some nginx configuration so the requests are properly handled by the proper server so they’ll take care of this too

The SpinupWP service from Delicious Brains guys, is an UI interface to implement a similar service but with a custom IaaS (Infraestructure as a Service) like Digital Ocean. I haven’t tested this yet but it seems it helps you to centralize the installations/configurations and to define/launch deployments for this Headless WordPress (PHP server) + Frontity (Node server) stack

Hope this helps

But I really like the Multidev/Dev, Test, and Live functionality on Pantheon’s systems.

Gives you a better overview and control of test and production / Live environment.

I also like the Pantheon CDN, HTTPS certificates etc.

@Kent I agree with you, Pantheon is awesome. We even have different WordPress+Frontity deployments for each pull request now! It’s crazy :smile:

And their CDN and caching strategy is also awesome, with smart invalidations not only for the HTML but also for the REST API.


The Decoupled Bridge is in “Early Access” state. It means it is working, but not open to the public yet, so you have to write to them if you want to use it and they will give you access manually.

You can use this form: https://pantheon.io/decoupled-cms#survey

I have tried to reach out to them… we’ll see if we get it up and running… We are building an advanced platform with Frontity so I’m eager to have an environment like this :sunglasses:
