VueFront is a VueJS powered CMS agnostic SPA & PWA frontend for your old-fashioned Blog and E-commerce site.

WordPress is open source software you can use to create a beautiful website, blog, or app.

CMS Connect App - adds the connection between the WordPress CMS and VueFront WebApp via a GraphQL API.

Demo

VueFront on Wordpress

VueFront wordpress admin panel

What does it do?

This is a wordpress plugin that connects the wordpress CMS with the VueFront WebApp via a GraphQL API. When installed, you will be provided with a CMS Connect URL that you will add to your VueFront WebApp .env file.

Wordpress Store (WooCommerce)

Since Wordpress does not have a built-in Store, we use the Free WooCommerce to add store support. If woocommerce is not avalible, VueFront will ignore it.

How to install?

Php version required >= 5.5, <= 7.2 (this limitation will be removed in the future)

Quick Install

  1. The quickest way to install is via WordPress Plugin Directory or manually Download the compiled plugin and upload it through the 'Plugins > Add New' menu in WordPress
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. Visit plugin's settings to get the CMS Connect URL

You will need the CMS Connect URL to complete the VueFront Web App installation

Deploy VueFront Web App to hosting (static website)

via VueFront Deploy service (recommended)

  1. Install the VueFront CMS Connect App from this repo.
  2. Log in or register an account with VueFront.com
