Installation requirements

These are the things you need to get started with Frontity.

A WordPress installation

Well, this one was obvious, wasn't it?

The WordPress REST API

Frontity accesses your content through a special URL on your site that retrieves data in a format called JSON, instead of the usual HTML.

If you haven't modified it, the URL where it lives is: https://www.your-blog.com/wp-json/.

You can take a look at the REST API of our test blog to see what it looks like: https://test.frontity.io/wp-json/wp/v2/posts. For a human, it looks pretty ugly but Frontity is ok with that ๐Ÿค“

If your /wp-json URL is not working, visit our community forum and ask for help!

Node installed in your computer

You can get Node from the official site. Alternatively, you can install Node using nvm (node version manager). Any of these methods will install NPM and NPX along with Node.

For those coming from WordPress might be worth noting that Frontity runs on Node, so it needs to be deployed in a different server than your WordPress. If you want to learn more about this, visit our GitHub repo.
