What are Atlas Blueprints?

They’re pre-built headless WordPress sites designed to work seamlessly with WP Engine’s Atlas hosting platform. Atlas Blueprints are available in Local when the Atlas Add-on is installed. They’re a great way to learn and test headless WordPress sites!

Using Atlas Blueprints gets you up and running quickly with a headless WordPress site. From there, you can customize it however you’d like.

There are three premade Atlas Blueprints to choose from: the Basic Blueprint, the Portfolio Blueprint, and the Blog Blueprint. Each comes with the elements of an Atlas site, such as a Faust.js frontend, Atlas Content Modeler, and more. 

The Portfolio and Blog Blueprints are customized to give a starting point depending on the type of site you’re looking to build. The Basic Blueprint is a simple starting point that’s ready to be customized.

Download the Atlas Add-on to test and preview the Atlas Blueprints in Local.
