Description: Developers can interact remotely with a WordPress site from a client-side or external application by using the WordPress REST API. Using JSON objects, this API allows you to create and send content to a site, request information from a site, update existing content, and even create single page applications on top of WordPress. This course takes a detailed look at putting the WordPress REST API to use, demonstrating the use of routes, endpoints, arguments, requests, responses, and more. Technologies covered include RESTful APIs, JSON, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, and AJAX.
