WordPress devs in the Pacific Northwest, I’m going to be giving a talk this month on using WordPress’ XML-RPC and RESTful APIs. I’ll be doing it twice, first in Seattle on the 11th and then in Portland on the 15th. If you’re interested, please find details and RSVP below.
Seattle: July WordPress Meetup
WordPress 3.4 finally shipped a few weeks ago, and now attention turns to 3.5. Feature discussions will start at the July 11 IRC dev chat, but in the meantime there will be a sprint to revise the unit tests suite. This post is to serve as starting guidance for the contributors who will be helping in this sprint. For background, you can read the kickoff IRC chat logs.
Today I gave a talk on “Integrating with WordPress via XML-RPC” at WordCamp NYC:
As WordPress 3.4 approaches RC and final release, the new features in the XML-RPC API have finally stabilized. For those Python users out there, I’ve updated my Python binding library to take advantage of the new functionality.
If you are currently using a previous release (1.x) of the library, be warned that 2.0 is not backwards compatible. I’ve removed all but one use of legacy Blogger/metaWeblog methods, which has caused the posts module and several others to change significantly. See the changelog for full details.
I’ve released another update of my XML-RPC modernization plug-in for WordPress. This release incorporates the work from Ticket #18429, and adds new wp.newPost, wp.editPost and wp.deletePost methods. With these new methods, full CRUD capabilities for posts of any type (posts, pages, and any registered custom post types) are available through XML-RPC.
