Stay updated with our newsletter

Build anything

A theme to fit your design system.

Gust is extremely flexible. You have control over your Tailwind config which allows you to customise Gust to suit any brand or design system. Every component and every piece of HTML is editable either through the page builder or a WP filter.

Performance

Because speed matters

Smaller assets means quicker load times so Gust keeps track of the classes used throughout your project, and automatically removes any unused CSS to make sure your production files are as small as possible. An out of the box build of Gust weighs in at only 3.8kb of CSS!

Developer Tools

A theme you can work with.

Gust is made for developers and comes with the tools you need to work with WordPress and keep your sanity. Interact with WP Query from the page builder, edit every HTML node, and create re-usable components. You can even define components with JSON to make code re-use a breeze. And it wouldn’t be WordPress without filters. Everything has a hook or filter so you have the final word on what gets rendered.

Most WordPress page builders give you a tonne of components out of the box, but come with very limited scope for customising them. Gust is different. Gust allows you to change everything, either through the drag-and-drop editor or through hooks and filters.

Components can be composed through the page builder or you can write them in JSON and check them into source control. This makes it easy to re-use components across projects and with your team.

Gust comes with a bunch of essential components and templates you can use to get started building a website, and we’re adding to it all the time!

Context

WP Query at your fingertips

The Gust editor allows you to interact with WP Query and provide this as context to other components. This means you can loop through posts, products, anything, without having to touch a code editor.

If you need to go beyond WP Query, you can also pass context through a filter so you can display whatever data you need!

Roadmap

What's next up

It’s early days for Gust and we’ve got a bunch of features in the pipeline. You can see some of what we’re working on below ( in no particular order! ).

If you have an idea or want to see a feature, please reach out to us and we’ll see what we can do.

  • User vs Developer view

    Gust is built primarily for developers and digital agencies, but the current UI can be a little overwhelming for regular users. We’re working on a stripped down version of Gust so that developers can still have all the bells and whistles but your average Joe can just get on with the job.

  • Accessibility

    We’re working on improving a11y across all of our native components.

  • Components, components, components

    Gust comes with a bunch of components out of the box, but there are always more that we could be adding. We have some in mind, but if there are any you particularly want feel free to request them, or better yet, build it and send it through to us!

  • Better image & link integration with WordPress

    Gust allows you to select and upload images using the WordPress image picker, but links still require a manual URL. This means if links are updated etc, these links will also need to be manually updated. We’re also working on adding native lazy loading and source set support to images.

  • WooCommerce integration

    WooCommerce is an extremely popular plugin for online stores of all types. Gust will work with WooCommerce out of the box, but it might not be so pretty. Deeper WooCommerce support is on our radar.
