Developer Hours: Introduction to the HTML API

Developer Hours are now firmly established as a regular monthly event in the calendar of WordPress’ developer community.

If you want to catch up with the recordings of previous events they are all available on and in a YouTube playlist.

The next Developer Hours event is scheduled for Wed 30 August at 15:00UTC.

This session will feature Dennis Snell who will be delivering a presentation on the HTML API and demonstrating what can be achieved with it. This new APIAPI 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. enables new ways to reliably work with and modify HTMLHTML HyperText Markup Language. The semantic scripting language primarily used for outputting content in web browsers., and will help alleviate difficult and tiresome wrangling of regular expressions which was previously the only way to achieve many of the things that the HTML API will enable.

The Tag Processor is already available for developers to use, as of WordPress 6.2, and is the first of a number of technologies which will eventually make up the HTML API.

Dennis is a key member of the team developing the HTML API so there is no-one better to introduce this exciting new technology to us. After his presentation he will be available to answer your questions.

All are welcome. If you wish to join please RSVP on the meetup event. The zoom link will be available there for registered attendees.
