Introduction to the WordPress REST API

The WordPress REST API is a way to interact with your website without loading a single page. It’s fast, it’s powerful, and if you use the block editor – you’re already using it without even knowing. By using the REST API, you unlock a whole new world of possibilities for building and managing sites. We’ll learn how to display data from the REST API on your site using both Javascript and PHP, how to authenticate using Application Passwords and how to update content on your site without having to log in to the admin, and we’ll look at some plugins that have their own REST APIs.
