JSON API allows you to retrieve and manipulate WordPress content using HTTP requests. There are three main goals:
- Provide a simple, consistent external interface
- Create a stable, understandable internal implementation
- Enable new types of extensions for WordPress
This plugin was created at The Museum of Modern Art for the weblog Inside/Out, which is served from Ruby on Rails. Instead of reimplementing the site templates as a WordPress theme, we opted for a Rails front-end that displays content served from a WordPress back-end. JSON API provides the necessary interface for retrieving content and accepting comment submissions.
