The REST API is shaping the future of WordPress. It’s opens up a world of opportunity by allowing users to leverage the superior content management capabilities of WordPress on the back-end to power a non-WordPress frontend, resulting in more dynamic web experiences. Sites like Wired, The New York Times, and WordPress.com are already putting it to yes. For example, Wired used it to create a beta version of the site without migrating any information, and Washington State University used it to manage 1083 sites on one installation of WordPress.
It’s widely-known that the REST API will truly help shape the future of WordPress, but the functionality can feel a bit advanced for someone relatively new to the CMS. We believe anyone can and should utilize the REST API.
