In conjunction with the Faust.js™ NPM packages, the Faust.js™ WordPress plugin enables a decoupled front-end to authenticate with WordPress through GraphQL mutations and REST API endpoints. It is the bridge between a Faust.js™ powered front-end application, and a WordPress backend.

The plugin also provides useful options for headless sites, such as the ability to:

  • Hide “theme” admin pages.
  • Redirect public route requests to the front-end application.
  • Rewrite WordPress URLs to front-end URLs in queried content.


  • The settings page
  • Portfolio, blog, and basic blueprints for headless sites built with Faust.js
  • A code snippet


  1. Search for the plugin in WordPress under “Plugins -> Add New”.
  2. Click the “Install Now” button, followed by “Activate”.

That’s it! For more information on getting started with headless WordPress, see Getting Started with Faust.js.

Why the name “Faust.js”?

Johann Faust was a German printer and was instrumental in the invention of the printing press, along with his partner Johann Gutenberg. In the same way the printing press democratized the spread of information, the mission of Faust.js is to support and further the vision of WordPress to democratize publishing on the web.

Reduces the complexity of building headless WordPress frontends for the web tenfold. Addition of Apollo helps the user flexibly perform declarative queries to manipulate and structure data too.

Patch Changes

  • 78a061a: Fixed a bug that caused links to files in wp-content to be rewritten to the Faust Front-end site URL when they should not have been.
  • 2559958: Bug Fix: Fixed missing call to autosave when using Post/Page previews.
  • 75f5c80: Fixed a bug where links were rewritten to the Faust Front-end Site URL when using the post editor, resulting in those rewritten links being saved to the post content and guid fields when they shouldn’t be. These links are now saved with the URL pointing to the WP site, as they should be. They are still rewritten at runtime to link to the Front-end Site URL when appropriate.


Patch Changes

  • b2c0fd3: Updated the settings page to improve descriptions and documentation links.
