Extends the WP-REST API with custom read only endpoints.

If you have a WordPress blog at you can reach the read only REST API by requesting these endpoints: 

The above endpoints does read from database whenever they are requested, and are thus very slow to react.

From within the plugin, there is an option to deploy a cache in front of this REST API. When you deploy it, be warned that the folder “rest-api” will be created in the root of your webserver.

You can then request the REST-API like this: 

Since these requests are infinitely cached, you can schedule an optional wipe of the cache which will occur 5 minutes after last post alteration.


  1. Download to your WordPress plugin folder and unzip.
  2. Activate plugin.


Do I use this at my own risk?
