WordPress Single Application Theme v2.0 released

Polymer v2.0 has landed and it was time to update the code basis for the Single Page Application Starter Theme.

So, what has changed?

  • A lot! But for good reasons.
  • The Theme works with WordPress 4.7+. No additional RestAPI-Plugin is required anymore.
  • typeahead.js-Autocomplete has been replaced with a custom Web components solution using iron-selector
  • All required elements have been updated to Polymer 2.0
  • ES6 class-based syntax
  • The app layout has been rewritten to align with Polymer Starter Kit v2

You can test and download a customized version of the WordPress Theme on or check out the code on GitHub.
