    Patrick Holberg Hesselberg: WP Plugin API (Hooks) samt real world examples

    WordCamp Denmark 2016Speaker: Patrick Holberg Hesselberg

    August 1, 2016 — I denne præsentation vil prøve at give en introduktion WP Plugin API’et, så andre kan begynde at lære at lave plugins. Ofte i WordPress ser man ofte løsningen med en child-theme, men der ville jeg i de fleste tilfælde hellere udvikle et lille plugin via. hooks.

  • Takayuki Shimizu: WordPress RESTful API & Amazon API Gateway

    Takayuki Shimizu: WordPress RESTful API & Amazon API Gateway

    WordCamp Kansai 2016Speaker: Takayuki Shimizu

    July 31, 2016 — Amazon API Gateway & AWS Lambda で構築した外部 RESTful API と WordPress の連携について紹介します。WordPress サイトを構築する際には外部 API と連携してデータを取得してサイト上に表示するような要望も多いかと思います。たとえば、天気予報や地図情報などを表示するような場合です。これら情報が、既に API として提供されているものであれば良いのですが、たとえば独自データであれば新規に構築する必要があったり、複数 API を跨いでいるため一つに集約する必要があったりするかもしれません。こういった場合には、Amazon API Gateway & AWS Lambda を活用するとスピーディに外部 API を構築して WordPress に連携することができるようになります。本セッションでは、API の構築手順や連携方法などを説明いたします。

  • Justin Sainton: Intro to WP-API

    Justin Sainton: Intro to WP-API

    WordCamp Cape Town 2015Speaker: Justin Sainton

    February 11, 2016 — The WP REST API is slated to be included into WordPress this year. This is one of the most drastic shifts (if not the most drastic) in the WordPress landscape. Companies like Wired.com, the New York Times and Rant Sports are using the API today to craft incredible experiences on top of WordPress. We often talk of vanity metrics, ideas like “WordPress runs 23% of the web”. Once the WP REST API is in WordPress, these become meaningless. WordPress will eventually be running parts of 100% of the web. This talk outlines the history of the API, the differences between the current stable version and what will likely be in WordPress, as well as paradigms and patterns within the project and some practical examples of how it might be used.

  • Aaron D. Campbell: Integrating WordPress with External APIs

    Aaron D. Campbell: Integrating WordPress with External APIs

    WordCamp Philly 2015Speaker: Aaron D. Campbell

    December 13, 2015 — Learn to use WordPress’s built in functionality (especially the HTTP library) to integrate with external APIs. We’ll touch on properly caching results to keep your site fast, fault tolerance, and even how to handle those strange APIs that send you data when you didn’t send a request for it (PayPal IPNs anyone?). We’ll talk theory, but mostly we’ll look at plenty of code and walk through examples from plugins that you can constantly refer back to for example code.

    WordCamp US 2015Speaker: Ryan Duff

  • Matt Cheney and Mark Llobrera: Decoupled Development with WordPress JSON APIs

    Matt Cheney and Mark Llobrera: Decoupled Development with WordPress JSON APIs

    WordCamp US 2015Speakers: Matt Cheney, Mark Llobrera

    December 11, 2015 — WordPress is coming of age as an application platform. Plugins like WP-API 2.0 and the JSON REST API have arrived, opening up new opportunities for how websites and applications are constructed with WordPress as a CMS. More and more developers are discovering the benefits of “decoupled” development for websites and applications, where the front-end client (website, native mobile, desktop) is built as a separate system from the CMS itself.
