WP REST API – All Terms

Description

This plugin will add separate WordPress REST API (v2) endpoint, with all available terms (all used categories, tags and custom taxonomies).
It is very useful when you need to create some filters into your app, with lists of all available terms.

For example what can you get, using wp-json/wp/v2/all-terms request (where categories and tags – standart taxonomies, and technologies – custom created taxonomy):

{
    categories: [
        {
            term_id: 9,
            name: "Downloads",
            slug: "downloads",
            term_group: 0,
            term_taxonomy_id: 9,
            taxonomy: "category",
            description: "",
            parent: 0,
            count: 1,
            filter: "raw"
        },
            term_id: 1,
            name: "Uncategorized",
            slug: "uncategorized",
            term_group: 0,
            term_taxonomy_id: 1,
            taxonomy: "category",
            description: "",
            parent: 0,
            count: 4,
            filter: "raw"
