  • A different focusthen I wanted

  • WordCamp Norway 2012

  • Talked about integrating apps

  • WordPress supplying data to iOS apps

  • Integration done through JSON API

  • Now we got the REST API

  • What is it? API is short for Application Program Interface

    Its for interaction with the wider world

    A REST API, in turn, is a particular architectural approach

    REST stands for Representational State Transfer

    Use HTTP methods explicitly: It takes place over the web with standard HTTP methods such as PUT, GET, POST and DELETE.

  • Whats currently in core Currently the infrastructure has been added in 4.4

    The infrastructure handles the routing, argument handling, JSON serialisation/deserialisation, status codes, and all that other lovely REST stuff.

    No endpoints has been added yet

  • How to interact with it rest_api_init to register your routes

  • How to interact with it

  • Apple TV

  • What is it? A digital media player and micro console

    Can receive digital data from a number of sources

    Most used to stream videos from the iTunes

    Another great feature is the ability to use AirPlay

  • The latest version Complete new OS called tvOS

    Latest generation finally got an app store

    Including a refreshed remote with Siri support

    All apps due need to have Siri support

  • How to build something for it Going the native way in Swift

    Using the template engine, TVML

    It has great new APIs for developers to use and build great new applications

  • TVML

  • What is it? Use Apples Television Markup Language (TVML)

    to create individual pages inside of a client-server app

    Every page in a client-server app is built on a TVML template

    TVML templates define what elements can be used and in what order

    Each template is designed to display information in a specific way

  • productTemplate

  • Above the fold

  • Under the fold

  • WooCommerce integration

  • WordPress Plugin

  • Integration Using the REST API to serve other data then JSON

    Using filter rest_pre_serve_request to do so

    Serving Javascript for the application logic

    Serving XML template though a Javascript variable

    Soon API endpoint for HTML dialog for payments

  • Templates Build the templates of Apple as classes

    Add helper methods to pass in the information

    Can be extended/changed by the filter wc_appletv_templates

  • The TV APP

  • The TV APP Almost default demo app for now

    Add header to WordPress that gets the javascript application URL

    App checks if the REST API and Application URL are given

    First interaction of Swift with Javascript

  • Current issues

  • Its not exactly HTML

  • Payment

  • DEMO







  • will this be the future
