I recently found out there’s a WordPress REST API under development, and from Andrew Nacin himself, no less. Apparently, it’s already in use in production by Wired and The New York Times, which came as an additional (positive) shock.
I’m somewhat known for my dislike of WordPress, but this partially redeems it in my eyes. Being able to write actually well performing content management tools for my helper apps without requiring clumsy and lengthy rewrites from the team that’s in charge of the publication house’s software seems almost too good to be true and managing content and being able to work on the phone would be a godsend.
I’ll be lobbying for an implementation of this API into SitePoint to happen as soon as humanly possible, but in the meanwhile, I’d like to hear your opinions on this. Did you try it out? Do you see it as a good move, a bad move? Do you consider yourself affected by this at all?
