The revolution will be RESTful! WordPress, the most popular and prevalent content publishing platform on the web, is undergoing a fundamental change. With the introduction of the WP API, a RESTful JSON API, the content management system can finally graduate from its PHP-rooted origins to become a full-fledged application platform.
With the WP API, developers can access the data on a WordPress site-such as users, posts, and categories-programmatically. The result is an expansion of the already limitless field of possibilities where theme and plugin development is concerned. This course is a first look at the WP API: what it is, how to get it running, how to interact with it, what it can do for us, and what we can do with it. Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen, your guide and WordPress guru, as he walks through the tools and major features (such as routes and endpoints) of the WP API, as well as a short project that shows how this new API will be used in real-world workflows.
