WordPress weekly recap #34: REST API roadmap and more

The team of the REST API was slightly under the radar so far this year. Now they published a post with the current state and a roadmap.

REST API roadmap

The REST API team published a status update and roadmap. The API was merged in 4.7, and the team is working on making use of it in the admin area. It would be possible to replace the admin-ajax calls with API calls directly, but that would be refactoring without real user benefit, so the team wants to work on changes that improve the UX.

In that area, there are two projects: New List Tables and Live Settings. Besides that, there is the OAuth 2 project.

More about that in the post »REST API Roadmap« by Ryan McCue.

PHP meeting from August 21

The team discussed the PHP info page’s sections and content again with the focus on the first section, which they call »Why you want to read this«. They had three different approaches: a »technology« approach, a »detected issue« approach, and a »propability« approach.
