Faust.js is a framework for building front-end applications for headless WordPress sites. Faust.js provides tooling to reduce the pains of building a headless WordPress site (namely around data fetching, authentication, previews, and SSR/SSG) while offering a pleasant experience for both developers and publishers.
Faust.js aims to be framework agnostic, so it can be used with any front-end framework. Visit one of the guides below for a starting point:
As we work towards our first release, we will be introducing support for other frameworks.
- Node.js v16.0.0 or newer (v16.8.0 when using Next.js 13 and v18.17 when using Next.js 14).
- MacOS, Windows (including WSL), and Linux are supported.

WordPress Plugin (FaustWP)
There are two key parts to Faust.js: the NPM packages and the WordPress plugin. To take full advantage of headless, you will need to install the plugin in addition to the npm packages.
You can download and install FaustWP from the WordPress Plugin Directory, or by using the zip linked below.
To chat with other Faust.js users and the headless community as a whole, you can join the WP Engine Developers Discord.
Additionally, if you have questions or ideas, please share them on GitHub Discussions.
