The WordPress REST API is one of the latest features of WordPress, the content management system used by 25% of the web. The API exposes data in WordPress, making it available for developers to use in different contexts, and making it possible to use WordPress as a headless CMS. At Human Made, we have experience using the REST API in our own products and on client projects.
Over the past few months we’ve been doing a lot of thinking internally about how we can improve the working lives of all of the employees at Human Made. This soul-searching was spurred by Catalina Alvarez, a researcher in Occupational Psychology from the University of Paris 8.
