Introduction to the WordPress REST API



The WordPress REST API is a new addition to the WordPress core and has the potential to change the way we interact with WordPress. With the REST API, we can build web or mobile apps that harness the power and reliability of the WordPress CMS.

In this course, Envato Tuts+ instructor Bilal Shahid will teach you everything to need to know to get started using the WordPress REST API. You'll start by taking a look at some fundamental topics like HTTP, REST API, and JSON. Then you'll go on to experiment with the WordPress REST API with the Postman HTTP client. Finally, you will learn to use the REST API with jQuery to retrieve and create posts from a front-end web interface.
