Build WordPress websites with full support for Tailwind CSS utility classes, Purge CSS, Tailwind config, direct access to WP Query, customisable components, and more.
Watch the video below for a preview or have a play with our live demo.
Not just another theme.
Gust is not here to add to the noise with yet another WordPress theme. Gust differentiates itself as being primarily for developers and digital agencies that need to go further than what the typical themes and page builders offer.
Need to tweak a component? Create your own custom components? Define your components in your codebase? Integrate elements with any data source you can think of? Gust was made for that.
Stay updated with our newsletter
No spam, we promise. We hate it as much as you do. We’ll only use this newsletter to let you know about updates to Gust. This includes letting you know when a new version is available, what new features to expect, and what we’re working on next.
WordPress and Tailwind, finally together.
Tailwind CSS is a utility-first CSS framework that can be composed to build any design.
Gust brings Tailwind to WordPress so you can have your cake and eat it too. You get a world-class CMS along with the plethora of plugins available to it, as well as the endless flexibility provided by Tailwind.
Gust also gives you direct access to the Tailwind Config file so you can still have all the options you’d expect from Tailwind.
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!
Change everything, make it your own.
Gust was built with the expectation that you’ll want to change things. We don’t expect to be able to accommodate every design system and we don’t expect you to have to compromise.
Gust allows you to edit the Tailwind Config so you can really tap into the flexibility provided by Tailwind, but you can also edit every element that goes into your page, either through the editor or via hooks and filters.
Components and templates,
“out of the box”, to get you started
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!

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.
Because speed matters
As you’ve probably figured out by now, Gust uses Tailwind CSS under the hood. One of the ( many ) nice things about that is it allows us to compile super small CSS files. Where most other frameworks need to support a lot of CSS for all their different components, Gust can give you only the CSS that you use, and for a fraction of the size.
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.
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.
We’re working on improving a11y across all of our native 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!
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 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.
