WP Engine’s Faust.js Framework includes this example project, the FaustWP plugin, headless packages, and tutorials to make building headless WordPress sites fast and fun.

Explore this Example Project

This headless example project uses Next.js, GraphQL, GQty and the WP Engine headless packages for WordPress integration. Dive in and edit this template at src/pages/index.tsx or discover more below.

Static Site Generation

This example project uses Next.js' Static Site Generation (SSR). SSG unlocks better performance by statically generating pages that can then be cached by a CDN.

Incremental Static Regeneration

This example project uses Next.js' Incremental Static Regeneration (ISR). This allows you to revalidate static pages without having to rebuild your entire site. By default, Faust.js sets a 15 minute revalidate time per page.
Learn more about how Faust.js uses ISR.

Ready for Atlas

Atlas is the complete Headless WordPress Platform for absurdly fast dynamic sites. One headless solution, one price, all in one place.

Global Styles and Fonts

Add styles to load on every page, such as typography and layout rules, in src/scss/main.scss. The project adds normalize.css in src/pages/_app.tsx. Google Fonts are enqueued in src/pages/_document.tsx.


Fetch data from WordPress with usePost, usePosts, useGeneralSettings and other custom hooks. Use these hooks in your page templates to pass data to custom components. See src/pages/index.tsx for examples.


Add or edit components in the src/components folder. Find component styles at src/scss/components, which use CSS modules to scope CSS to each component.

Latest Posts

The Posts component in src/pages/index.tsx shows the latest six posts from the connected WordPress site.
