This is a break from your regularly scheduled release posts. We’re looking to gather some feedback on the lead up to merging into core Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress., to assess what your thoughts are on the API An API or Application Programming Interface is a software intermediary that allows programs to interact with each other and share data in limited, clearly defined ways.. Whether you’ve used the API or not, we’d love to hear your thoughts.
Here’s a bunch of questions to start you off:
- What are you doing with the API?
- What would you like to do with it? (How can we make it better for you? What can’t you do right now that you need?)
- What improvements would you like to see? (What sucks?)
- Is the API important to you?
- Anything else you’d like to tell us?
If your comment is too long to fit here, or you’d like to wax lyrical about the API, feel free to comment on your own blog (versus network, site) and cross-post a link across to here.
If you can’t comment publicly due to disclosure, you can leave a message for me personally at
ryanmccue.info. Please specify if you will allow me to share your private feedback with the WP REST API The REST API is an acronym for the RESTful Application Program Interface (API) that uses HTTP requests to GET, PUT, POST and DELETE data. It is how the front end of an application (think “phone app” or “website”) can communicate with the data store (think “database” or “file system”) https://developer.wordpress.org/rest-api/. project and core team, or if you’d prefer to keep it completely private between the two of us.
Help us make this the best feature to ever land in WordPress. 🙂
