Calypso for Self-Hosted WordPress
Now let’s see how to connect a self-hosted WordPress site with Calypso.First you need Download the Calypso desktop app and install it on your computer. Also make sure you have the free Jetpack WordPress plugin installed.
Connect the Jetpack plugin with your WordPress account.
After successfully logging in and connecting to Jetpack, you will be asked for approval to connect to your website.
click approve button.

Manage posts and pages in Calypso
Calypso allows you to manage blog posts, pages, themes, menus, plugins and other basic settings. You can view all blog posts and pages of your website in the app’s dashboard. You click on the Blog Posts menu and it displays a list of all posts with their featured images.
Limitations of Calypso
The current version of the Calypso desktop application still has some limitations. One is that you cannot manage your website unless you install and activate Jetpack.
If Jetpack doesn’t play nicely with their theme, this can be a problem for the site of choice (although most users shouldn’t have this problem).
If you want to update your tech stack, and more importantly, if you want to take the burden off managing multiple WordPress sites, I would recommend Calypso. Another good reason to use Calypso is that it’s fast, responsive, and offers real-time management through a responsive design that lets you work on a variety of devices.
