With the new Plugin Directory being based on WordPress comes the ability to use its REST API to access its data. In this session we’ll be going over the various modules and libraries available that make it fairly straight forward to get started on a front-end React client for your site. We’ll discuss a possible NPM module setup and Grunt workflow, as well as how React components for the Plugin Directory are structured, before looking at how it all comes together. And finally we’ll take a look at how the Directory is using React today!
