wpcom.js

Official JavaScript library for the WordPress.com REST API. Compatible with Node.js and web browsers.

CircleCI

How to use

Node.js

Introduce the wpcom dependency into your package.json ...

npm install --save wpcom

... and then initialize it with your API token ( [optional ] ( #authentication ) ).

// Edit a post on a site
var wpcom = require( 'wpcom' )( '<your-token>' );

wpcom
	.site( 'your-blog.wordpress.com' )
	.postsList( { number: 8 } )
		.then( list => { ... } )
		.catch( error => { ... } );

Browser

Include dist/wpcom.js.

<script src="wpcom.js"></script>
<script>
	var wpcom = WPCOM( '<your-token>' );
	var blog = wpcom.site( 'your-blog.wordpress.com' );
	blog.postsList( { number: 8 } )
		.then( list => { ... } )
		.catch( error => { ... } );
</script>

Authentication

Not all requests require a REST API token. For example, listing posts on a public site is something anyone can do.

If you do need a token, here are some links that will help you generate one:

API

Examples

// Edit a post on a site
var wpcom = require( 'wpcom' )( '<your-token>' );
var blog = wpcom.site( 'your-blog.wordpress.com' );
blog.post( { slug: 'a-post-slug' } ).update( data )
	.then( res => { ... } )
	.catch( err => { ... } );

You can omit the API token for operations that don't require permissions:

// List the last 8 posts on a site
var wpcom = require( 'wpcom' )();
var blog = wpcom.site( 'your-blog.wordpress.com' );
blog.postsList( { number: 8 } )
	.then( list => { ... } )
	.catch( error => { ... } );

More pre-made examples are in the examples/ directory.

Test

The token and site vars must be given to testing scripts either using TOKEN and SITE environment vars respectively or through of a config.json file into test/ folder like bellow:

{
	"site": "<site-id>",
	"token": "<token>"
}

Run tests:

$ make test-all

Also tests can be filtered using make test FILTER=<filter>:

$ make test FILTER=wpcom.site.post
