WordPressSharp

A C# client to interact with the WordPress XML-RPC API

Install

I'm working on a Nuget package once I'm done mapping all the WP XML-RPC endpoints.

In the meantime, you'll have to clone, build, and add the DLL the ole fashioned way

Config

Use your config file to for configuration settings:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<configuration>
	<appSettings>
		<add key="WordPressUsername" value="" />
		<add key="WordPressPassword" value="" />
		<add key="WordPressBaseUrl" value="" />
		<add key="WordPressBlogId" value="" />
	</appSettings>
</configuration>

As an alternative you can use the WordPressSiteConfig class to store configuration settings.

Examples

Create Post

using (var client = new WordPressClient()) 
{
    var post = new Post
    {
        PostType = "post",
        Title = "My Awesome Post",
        Content = "<p>This is the content</p>",
        PublishDateTime = DateTime.Now
    };

    var id = Convert.ToInt32(client.NewPost(post));
}

Create Post Tag

using (var client = new WordPressClient())
{
    var termId = client.NewTerm(new Term
    {
        Name = "term test",
        Description = "term description",
        Slug = "term_test",
        Taxonomy = "post_tag"
    });
}

Add feature image

You can add a feature image by using the Data.CreateFromUrl or Data.CreateFromFilePath:

string url = "https://unsplash.imgix.net/photo-1423683249427-8ca22bd873e0";
using (var client = new WordPressClient()) 
{
    var post = new Post
    {
        PostType = "post",
        Title = "New photo from Unsplash",
        Content = "<p>Check out this new picture from Unsplash.</p>",
        PublishDateTime = DateTime.Now
    };
    
    var featureImage = Data.CreateFromUrl(url);
    post.FeaturedImageId = client.UploadFile(featureImage).Id;

    var id = Convert.ToInt32(client.NewPost(post));
}
