WordPress API + React + Redux starter

We have created the WordPress theme starter project that will allow you to easily include React and Redux into your WordPress site.

This starter should be used:

  • to learn how to include React and Redux in your WordPress site
  • to quickly start building themes which include React and Redux
  • as a starting point for your custom WordPress + React + Redux web applications


Here are some of the features that are included:

  • React + Redux development workflow
    • React for fast and simple UI
    • Redux state container
  • Webpack module bundler
  • Webpack Dev Server
  • React Hot Loader – reloading of your components in realtime without losing the state
  • Time traveling – good thing when you’re debugging your site
  • CSS modules
  • Global SCSS styles
  • Simple router for WordPress sites
  • Multiple entry points for React
    • Your components can be placed in several places inside your website
    • You don’t need to have all of your components inside a single container

See it in action

For the demo purposes we have created a simple counter application.

React counter

Our application has two entry points. Counter component is placed into the content section, and counter increment widget is placed into the navbar. As you can see, they interact without any problems. 🙂


Time traveling

Here you can see the time traveling in action. You just install the Redux DevTools and you can time travel from your browser debugger.
