PoP is now available as a standalone API, can power any WordPress theme

Together with the release of the PoP API, we announce a major feature: the PoP API has been completely decoupled from the overall application, so it can be used as a standalone API to power any application, using a PoP theme or any standard WordPress theme.

For instance, we have deployed a site under https://nextapi.getpop.org, which uses the default WordPress 5.0 theme “Twenty Nineteen”:

Enjoy!
