wp-react-stories

A masonry-like display of posts from the WordPress REST API. Includes search and a category select input.

Demo.

Install

Composer/WordPress

If you plan to use the WordPress shortcode, this library can be installed via Composer or activated as a WordPress plugin. To install via Composer, use:

composer require colbycomms/wp-react-stories

Note the WordPress parts of this plugin require PHP 7.1 or higher.

From NPM

If you're not using the shortcode and plan to import this library into your ES6, Javascript, install it with npm:

npm install wp-react-stories

Or:

yarn add wp-react-stories

Usage

In ES6 Javascript

First, if you installed this library using Composer and plan to import the component into your Javascript, you need to prevent the plugin's compiled script from enqueuing. In your WordPress project, add the following filter:

add_filter( 'colbycomms__stories__enqueue_script', '__return_false' );

Include the Stories component in your project, e.g.:

import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react';
import Stories from 'wp-react-stories';
 
const myContainer = document.querySelector('#my-container-element');
const myProps = {
    // See below.
}
 
ReactDOM.render(<Stories {...myProps} />, myContainer);

In WordPress

To use this plugin out of the box without any ES6 inclusion, simply install it with Composer or activate it as a plugin, then use this shortcode:

[stories endpoint="http://my-site.com/wp-json/wp-v2/posts/"]

All the shortcode attributes have defaults (see below), so simply use [stories] if all the defaults apply.
