I have a client who wants to build blog built on top of WordPress and honestly I’m kinda confused because they said they want it in React? I have never used WordPress before so I don’t know how to go about this.
They bought a Neori WordPress theme (e.g. https://themeforest.net/item/akea-gutenberg-minimal-blog-wordpress/22870675?s_rank=1). They sent me the ZIP file for it, and it looks like there are installation instructions for it. It’s built using jQuery, so where does React come into play? Isn’t it as simple as uploading that theme? I see this in the installation instructions:
I originally thought they wanted a WordPress backend (like an API) and a React front end that would make requests to the WordPress API, but I’m really not sure if that’s a thing? Could someone please enlighten me?
