Plugin: Offer an REST-API? (3 posts)

    Hi guys,

    that's kind of very different question. I should create a plugin that's accessible by an native App. So… I know that WordPress has it's API but is it possible to provide an (REST+JSON) API with a plugin?
    The plugin does it's work in WordPress but datachange should be possible by App. Of course I could write some PHP code and put it to any place and access the database manually, but maybe offering an API is possible directly through the plugin.

    So… Are there any ideas or suggestions what to do?

    Regards,
    Jan Galler

    Jetpack adds a JSON API to WordPress.

    Seems interesting, I installed the plugin. But that's not exactly what I want. I need to offer my plugin's data and not just the blog content or something like this. I've looked at Jetpacks page and the documentation. It seems nice but it doesn't allow me to offer an custom endpoint that returns custom data.

    It look like I've really to create a custom API and put it just somewhere on the server. That disappoints me because I thought that it's possible to do this by WordPress and use WordPress' authentication to access the database.
