In conjunction with Faust.js, FaustWP enables a decoupled front-end to authenticate with WordPress through GraphQL mutations and REST API endpoints. It is the connective glue between a Faust.js-powered front-end app, 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.


  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.
