Plugin provides a framework sets up WordPress as a headless CMS.

Framework options include:

  • JSON Web Token Authentication (optional)
  • Adds Gutenberg block data to REST responses (optional)
  • Protects REST requests with nonce (optional)
  • Cleans up REST response objects (optional)
  • Removes non required REST endpoints (optional)
  • Disables the frontend (optional)

All modules can be enabled/disabled or configured to suit most if not all WordPress as a headless CMS use cases.

Developing a single page React app but still want to use the WordPress theme based fronted.

Not a problem, maybe you just use these modules:

  • Adds Gutenberg block data to REST responses
  • Protects REST requests with nonce
  • Cleans up REST response objects
  • Removes non required REST endpoints

Developing a truly headless WordPress single page app or mobile app and just want WordPress for the backend?

Maybe use these modules:

  • JSON Web Token Authentication
  • Adds Gutenberg block data to REST responses
  • Protects REST requests with nonce
  • Cleans up REST response objects
  • Removes non required REST endpoints
  • Disable the WordPress frontend

You get the idea.

The plugin documentation is held inside the plugin ‘options’ page in the WordPress admin, although there are some docs for the custom rest endpoints:

Anyway if you are looking to use WordPress as a headless CMS on a React, React Native, Angular, iOS/Android native project. This plugin should go a long way to setting WordPress up as you need it.
