    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.

    Evan Mullins: WP API, What Is It Good For? Absolutely Everything!

    WordCamp Raleigh 2016Speaker: Evan Mullins

    November 7, 2016 — See the Power. Every WordPress website has (or will have soon) an API built-in! What can you do with that? It allows us to further separate the data from the code. Because WordPress is a great CMS we can use it to manage our data and then via the API access that data to power whatever we like. We’ll touch a handful of examples and explore an iOS app pulling all it’s data and assets from a WordPress site via this API.

    See the Power of the WP API. Now that every WordPress website has (or will have) an API built-in, what can you do with it? It allows us to further separate the data from the code. Use WordPress to manage our data and then via the API easily access or update that data to power whatever we like. We’ll touch how to set it up and a handful of examples and then explore an iOS app pulling all it’s data and assets from a WordPress site via this API.

    This will be geared for developers with some “how to” but also for everyone interested in the power of WordPress and where things are heading.

    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.

  • Roy Sivan: Building Client Side Web Applications with WordPress and WP-API

    Roy Sivan: Building Client Side Web Applications with WordPress and WP-API

    WordCamp Montréal 2015Speaker: Roy Sivan

    September 15, 2015 — I talk about the merits of using Client Side technologies when building out a web application. With WP-API moving its way into core and getting better, building web applications with WordPress is becoming more feasible, and easier. JavaScript MVC frameworks have exploded in popularity over the past couple years and I show that they can be used to build with WordPress, in faux MVC setup. I hope people learn the value in the WP-API, if they did not already, and when client side can be a better option for a custom build.

    Prerequisites:
    I cover the basics of everything including what is WP-API and the basics on how it works (responses, etc.)
