Single purpose API
Sorry, No followers
On Tuesday, the newest version of WordPress, 4.4, was released. It features a number of standard updates, such as a new theme, that are common in new WordPress versions, but the most notable update in WordPress 4.4 is the inclusion of infrastructure for the WordPress REST API.
The new Contentful API seeks to disrupt current content management workflows with an API-first approach. The API service uses a presentation agnostic platform to allow content to be distributed across any device or application. Built from the knowledge and experience gained when Contentful founders managed StorageRoom – a platform used by over 1,000 international customers to push content to applications – the new Contentful has taken the lessons learned to create a wholly new content management system.
Our API directory now includes 31 CMS APIs. The newest is the Contentful API. The most popular, in terms of mashups, is the WordPress.com API. We list 3 WordPress.com mashups. Below you'll find some more stats from the directory, including the entire list of CMS APIs.
