  • Steve Loar: Power-Up Your UI with WP-API and React.js

    WordCamp Cincinnati 2016Speaker: Steve Loar

    January 15, 2017 — The new WordPress REST API comes with a lot of functionality out of the box. This functionality can be coupled with new, powerful JavaScript technology to create fast, responsive, interfaces. In this session I will attempt to show how to utilize the new WP-API to create a REST interface for serving up posts. I will then construct a simple UI in React to access and display those posts. Along the way we will touch on Bootstrap, Postman, Webpack, Redux, and React-Router.
