I really am excited about a new series on the Delicious Brains blog, where Jeff Gould is demoing how to use the WordPress REST API and React to create a mobile app.
My favorite part is that they are creating a really simple app, but showing real code and step by step instructions, so that someone with little to no native app experience can understand it.
As you can see, the WP REST API has made it incredibly easy to use WordPress data with pretty much any app development framework that can send HTTP requests and parse JSON data. While we’re using React Native here, our API can communicate just as simply with web frameworks like Angular and Ember, or even native mobile frameworks for iOS, Android, and Windows Phones.
Our DeepThoughts app is simple right now, but we’ll be exploring the capabilities of the WP JSON API in later installments of this series by adding more features and interactivity to it.
I’m definitely keeping an eye on this series.
