The Wordpress API works well. Once you figure out how to send a REST request, you'll be jamming in no time. Below are a few lessons I've learned along the way on how to streamline the development cycle.
Tip 1: Pick an API tool
Although ```curl`` is a fantastic tool, I recommend something more comprehensives, such as Postman or Mac PAW. Both services enable you to store your requests in the cloud.
For the remainder of this article, I am going to use PAW.
Tip 2: Import this Wordpress API Collection into Postman or PAW
I've attached a file that allows you to see all the possible API requests you can make from a basic Wordpress API installation. This document is all you need to get started.
