API reference of Frontity and its packages.

Frontity projects are built around the idea of packages that encapsulate logic that can be reused across projects. Frontity packages may be considered as the equivalent of WordPress plugins. They're the ingredients of the final Frontity project.

How to use Frontity packages

Frontity packages are available via npm and they can be installed as dependencies of your Frontity project (as with any other Node project).

Frontity needs to know the packages we're going to use in the project and how we want to use them. We can set this in the frontity.settings.js file, where we can define and configure the packages (by using Namespaces) for the Frontity project.

We're going to focus on the use of Frontity packages at a Frontity project level, but the same applies if you're creating a custom Frontity package. You can see more info about how to create your custom package here.

These packages encapsulate the logic to apply the main features needed in a WordPress + React stack project managed by Frontity.

A Frontity project is basically the sum of the Core package plus a selection of Features packages. You can also use Collections packages to help speed up the development of your Frontity project.
