In this chapter, you'll learn how to write a functional plugin to create and edit posts using the latest version of the WordPress REST API. This chapter will also cover the process on how to work efficiently with data to update your page dynamically based on results. This tutorial comes to serve as a basis and introduction to processing form data using REST API and AJAX and not as a redo of the WordPress post editor or a frontend editing plugin.
REST API's first task is to make your WordPress powered websites more dynamic, and for this precise reason, I have created a thorough tutorial that will take you step by step through this process. After you understand how the framework works, you will be able to implement it on your sites, thus making them more dynamic.
