The Best JavaScript Based Plugins & Themes for WordPress

For the last few years WordPress has been moving towards a JS codebase, and plugins and themes are expected to follow suit in a big way during the next year. We've already seen some examples popping up here and there. At WP Mayor we would like to take a deeper look at some of these themes and plugins that make use of the REST API and have JS powered interfaces.

At WP Mayor we would like to take a deeper look at some of these themes and plugins that make use of the REST API and have JS powered interfaces. If you have developed such a plugin or theme please leave a comment below so that we will take into consideration for an upcoming post about JS-based plugins and JS-based themes for WordPress. Thanks!

  1. We use a backbone-powered frontend for our plugin “picu”. Right now we’re not using the WP REST API, but that’s basically just because it wasn’t available when we first built the frontend and it’s definitely something we will use in a future release very soon.

    1. Plugins powered by JS and the REST API will be shipped as normal. Designing a user interface that works on all the new ways of accessing the WordPress backend will be a challenge though. Right now plugins can be pretty much guaranteed that their users will interact with the UI via wp-admin, but in the future this won’t be the case. We’ll see more applications like Calypso which move away from the wp-admin UI.
