Alley Interactive’s Matt Johnson gives us a closer look under the hood with the new Guggenheim.org, which was recently redesigned with WordPress (did you catch that in the last Footnotes?). Some interesting tidbits:
- Took over two years from early phase to finished product.
- All the templates live within Angular components and are closely coupled to specific pieces of the site and their interactive behaviors. The components represent a reusable piece of front-end code.
- All the “smart” components that read data from the WordPress backend are consuming endpoints exposed by the WordPress REST API.
