I’ll give an introduction to the WordPress REST API and Angular.js in the form of a high level overview (why they exist, what problems they solve, the future of the REST API), and proceed to walk through building theme components with the REST API and Angular.js. I’ll discuss the concerns leading a theme author to chose to build asynchronous components, such as caching issues. Live examples of REST API/Angular.js components will be discussed, with examples of how I built them. Time permitting I’ll conclude by building a REST API/Angular.js theme component live, though will likely do it Emeril Lagasse style (here’s a directive I baked earlier!) due to time constraints.
