To follow this course, you must already be familiar with the WordPress REST API and advanced authentication. Learn where to get the information you need to proceed.
- [Instructor] This course is the third in a series on the WordPress REST API. It takes everything covered in the two previous courses, WordPress REST API and WordPress REST API: Authentication, and ties it together to show how we can use the REST API to build robust stand-alone applications that neither look nor feel like WordPress. I'm only covering new territory in this course. That means to be able to follow along, you need to have watched the two first courses. As we get into the code, I'll start off where the other courses left off, so if you're at all uncertain about how to interact with the REST API or how to send and receive authenticator requests from a third-party application using OAuth 2, go watch WordPress REST API and WordPress REST API: Authentication before continuing.
