Description

Provides UI for connecting from one WordPress installation to another via the WordPress REST API over OAuth1. This plugin is a UI wrapper for WDS WP REST API Connect.

Caveats:

  • To use this plugin, you will need to run composer install from the root of the plugin to pull in the required dependencies, or download this zip.
  • Both the WP REST API plugin and the OAuth plugin are required to be on the server you are connecting to.
  • You'll need to create a 'Client Application' on the server. You'll be given instructions from this plugin's settings page after you save the server URL.

Usage:

Once you've created a successful API connection via the Settings screen, you can use the the plugin's API helper function/filter. If the connection is successful, The helper function and filter both return a WDS_WP_REST_API\OAuth1\Connect object (example usage here), which you can use to make your API requests.

The filter is an alternative to the helper function provided so that you can use in other plugins or themes without having to check if function_exists. To do that, simply use $api = apply_filters( 'wds_rest_connect_ui_api_object', false );. If the wds_rest_connect_ui_api_object function isn't available, you're original value, false will be returned. Whether using the function or the filter, you'll want to check if the $api object returned is a WP_Error object (is_wp_error) or a WDS_WP_REST_API_Connect object (is_a( $api, 'WDS_WP_REST_API\OAuth1\Connect' )) before proceeding with making requests.

// Get API object
$api = apply_filters( 'wds_rest_connect_ui_api_object', false );

// If WP_Error, find out what happened.
if ( is_wp_error( $api ) ) {
	echo '<xmp>'. print_r( $api->get_error_message(), true ) .'</xmp>';
}

// If a WDS_WP_REST_API\OAuth1\Connect object is returned, you're good to go.
if ( is_a( $api, 'WDS_WP_REST_API\OAuth1\Connect' ) ) {

	$schema = $api->get_api_description();

	// Let's take a look at the API schema
	echo '<xmp>$schema: '. print_r( $schema, true ) .'</xmp>';
}
