This is the code for the FullStackWeekly website. You can use it as a starter pack for your WordPress site as well.

Since WordPress can expose a REST API, this project uses Vue.js, Vue-router, Vuex, Vue-resource & Progressive Web App techniques to create an offline-first web client.

You can also fork the project and host it on Azure App Services with continuous integration using the deploy.cmd file (included)

Live version:

Getting Started


Make sure that Node v7 is installed.



First, install the WordPress plugins to enhance its REST API

  • Better REST API Featured Images
  • Category Order
  • REST API Enabler
  • WP REST API - filter fields
  • WP REST API - Pure Taxonomies

Then, clone the repo or create a fork

$ git clone

Then, edit the config:


Then, edit the theme, routes and assets:


Finally, to run the project for development with hot reload:

$ npm install
$ npm run dev

Or, build the project for production:

$ npm run build


Setup a new site on Azure App Services https://[fullstackweekly] and as the path select your forked Github project.

Your site should be running on the path you created (https://[fullstackweekly]!

It should work offline as well and with every commit it will deploy the changes to Azure. Once the user refreshes the site he will receive the new cached version immediately.
