Let's kick things off by providing you with a roadmap so that you can find your way around the documentation and zero in on the information you need right now.

Frontity CLI

In the CLI Commands section you'll find info about the commands provided by the Frontity CLI that you can use to create, run and build your Frontity projects


Frontity packages are the ingredients of your Frontity project. They're NPM packages in charge of a specific portion of logic required by the project (routing, source, HTML render,.. ).

You can learn all about existing Frontity packages in the section entitled Frontity Packages.


In reality a Frontity theme is just a special instance of a Frontity package. Really everything is a package when you're working with Frontity.

The included themes, namely mars-theme and twentytwenty-theme, are dealt with separately from the other packages under the Frontity Themes section.


Sometimes a Frontity WordPress plugin is required so everything works smoothly. You'll find everything you need to know about them in the WordPress Plugins section
