There’s been a great deal of chatter lately around the WordPress REST API. It’s a frequent topic of conversation at WordCamps and in the press; and the WordPress core team recently proposed to merge the REST API into WordPress core.

The WordPress REST API is heralded as the future of WordPress development, and makes developing WordPress sites faster and easier.
