WP REST API Plugin - How to actually use it?

Post by JustinW42 » Thu Apr 05, 2018 8:49 am

Not sure if this is the best place for this, but here goes:

I downloaded the .livecode files from GitHub, concerning the Wordpress REST API wrapper that was made available.... I tried to open it as a stack to view the code, but it doesn't open in Livecode 9 (haven't tried in older versions). There is no error - it simply doesn't open, and nothing appears in the Project Browser.

I also tried copying the files into the Livecode Plugins directory, but that had no effect.

Am I missing a critical step?

UPDATE: The first time around, I had downloaded each of the files, individually. I didn't download a few of the files, such as the ReadMe file, etc. The second time around, I downloaded the entire directory as a ZIP file. After extracting the ZIP file, I was able to easily open the stacks - now its time to dive in and see what kind of damage I can do! :D

Any luck with this?

I'm stuck on getting the Authentication to work.. Where is do I find the Client ID and Secret?

Is this oAuth or plain text or token?

WP 4.9

I had a quick look and noticed that this has not been updated since 2016. Wordpress went through some pretty major updates last year. I would be hesitant to invest much time or effort into anything that has not kept pace with those changes.

Was there something specific you were trying to do? There are other ways around Wordpress if you wanted to create an app..
