Spring WordPress WP-API Client

This is a Spring client for WordPress REST plugin, which makes it easy to integrate Spring Boot applications with WordPress CMS.


Add the following dependency to your Spring Boot Application


Below is a sample configuration we need in the file
wpapi.port=443   # Optional, default is 80
wpapi.https=true # Optional, default is false

The Spring WP-API client needs the RestTemplate so lets create a bean in our Application and autowire the Spring client. We also need to add component scan annotation so that Spring finds and autowires all the required dependencies.

public class Application implements CommandLineRunner {
    public static void main(String args[]) {;
    private WpApiClient wpApiClient;
    public RestTemplate restTemplate() {
        return new RestTemplate();

Now just use client to call the WordPress services

Map params = new HashMap<>();
params.put("search", "Spring");
params.put("per_page", "2"); // results per page
params.put("page", "1"); // current page
// See WP-API Documentation more parameters
Post[] posts = wpApiClient.getPostService().getAll(params);
for (Post p : posts) {"Post: " + p.getId());"" + p.getContent());
