API Improver for WooCommerce

Description

Improve your WooCommerce API REST without config.

WooCommerce is a awesome plugin used by 5+ million WordPress websites to create e-commerce.

It’s awesome and we love it but sometimes we need more from API REST.

Endpoints

We support V3.

/products

  • Will search for a category/tag by “name” and “slug” (in this order) if “id” is not provided (or empty).
  • Will search for attribute ID if it’s not provided (or empty). Check wc_attribute_taxonomy_id_by_name for more details.

In both cases, we will not create a new product attribute, category or tag. You can use the “aifw_api_v1_products_search_for_terms” filter to create it and return the “term_id”.
WooCommerce will keep the attribute for product only if a taxonomy was not found.

How to Use

Easy and quick!

Just activate “API Improver for WooCommerce” and it’s done. No configurations.

Nope. The intention here is to improve WooCommerce API REST.

I want to add my customization to endpoints

For products, you can use the filter “aifw_api_v3_products_request_for_prepare_object_for_database” to change the request.

Is there a way to create categories or attributes?

We will not create new terms but you can use the “aifw_api_v3_products_term_not_found”. Example.
