    Wordprismic is a small and fully configurable Node utility for importing existing Wordpress blogs into the Prismic.io content platform.


    Make sure you meet the following requirements before using the importer:

    • Wordpress's REST API enabled (included and auto-enabled in core from WP 4.4+)
    • Both Node 7.6+ and Ruby installed
    • Any Wordpress plugins that add or change content models (eg: Advanced Custom Fields, YOAST, etc) hooked up to the REST API, via plugins or otherwise


    Create a JavaScript configuration file with the following properties

    Property Description
    wordpress.url The full URL of your wordpress blog
    prismic.repo The name of your Prismic repository
    prismic.locale The locale of language locale of your imported documents in Prismic (see Settings -> Translations & locales)
    prismic.categoriesType (optional) The content type of post categories in prismic, if available
    optimizeMediaRequests (optional) Whether to attempt to only fetch required media assets. Shortens import time, but can cause 503 errors on some Wordpress servers.
    schema A function to transform Wordpress data to your Prismic content model, see documentation below
    module.exports = {
      wordpress: {
        url: 'https://myblog.com'
      prismic: {
        repo: 'myNewBlog',
        locale: 'en-au',
        categoriesType: 'category'
      optimizeMediaRequests: false,
      schema: async function(post, html) {
        return {
          type: 'post',
          uid: post.slug,
          category: {
            id: post.categories[0].prismic.id,
            mask: 'category'
          author: post.author.name,
          title: html.decode(post.title.rendered),
          featured_image: {
            origin: {
              url: post.featured_media.guid.rendered
            alt: post.featured_media.alt_text
          excerpt: await html.parse(post.excerpt.rendered),
          content: await html.parse(post.content.rendered)

    Defining your schema

    The config schema describes how your Wordpress posts map to your Prismic content model. It's written as a function that is given two paramaters:

    1. The imported post from Wordpress
    2. Helper functions html.parse(), which creates Prismic RichText objects out of HTML strings, and html.decode(), which decodes HTML strings with entities

    See the Wordpress Posts API Reference for all properties available on the post object provided. However, the following properties on post have been changed by Wordprismic:

    • author is the full user object, rather than just the ID
    • featured_media is the media object object of the asset, rather than just the ID
    • Each item in categories has been populated with a matching Prismic category if it's available (from prismicCategories type in config) as follows: { wordpress: [category], prismic: [document] }

    The html.parse() function is asynchronous, so make sure you await it and flag your schema as async.


    You can now run the importer directly from NPM, with the following arguments

    Argument Description
    --config (-c) Path to your config file
    --dest (-d) Location to save zip archive for imorting, defaults to current directory
    npx wordprismic -c ./path/to/config.js

    Or if you'd prefer, install the module globally first

    npm i -g wordprismic
    wordprismic -c ./path/to/config.js

    Your new Prismic posts will be saved to in a folder called wordprismic-import. Compress the contents (not the folder itself) to a .zip archive, then import it to Prismic.
