Extends the WP-REST API with custom read only endpoints.

If you have a WordPress blog at http://www.example.com you can reach the read only REST API by requesting these endpoints:

http://www.example.com/wp-json/wprestapiextensions/v1/posts?page=1&per_page=12&search=query&tags=tag1+tag2
http://www.example.com/wp-json/wprestapiextensions/v1/tag?tag_name=tag1
http://www.example.com/wp-json/wprestapiextensions/v1/post

The above endpoints does read from database whenever they are requested, and are thus very slow to react.

From within the plugin, there is an option to deploy a cache in front of this REST API. When you deploy it, be warned that the folder "rest-api" will be created in the root of your webserver.

You can then request the REST-API like this:

http://www.example.com/rest-api/v1/posts?page=1&per_page=12&search=query&tags=tag1+tag2
http://www.example.com/rest-api/v1/tag/?_jsonp=angular.callbacks._1&tag_name=tag1

Since these requests are infinitely cached, you can schedule an optional wipe of the cache which will occur 5 minutes after last post alteration.
