Enable pretty permalinks

Apache

Make sure the Apache server has modules proxy and proxy_http installed and enabled. This enables configuration "P" in "[L,P,QSA]" from the rewrite rule below.

Add the following code in the .htaccess to support API endpoint /api/rest/ at the end of the resource page URL:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /

# Rewrite from /some-url/api/rest/ to /some-url/?scheme=api&datastructure=rest
RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^(.*)/api/rest/?$ /$1/?scheme=api&datastructure=rest [L,P,QSA]
</IfModule>

Nginx

Add the following code in the Nginx configuration's server entry, to enable API endpoint /api/rest/. Please notice that the resolver below is the one for Docker; replace this value for your environment.

location ~ ^(.*)/api/rest/?$ {
    # Resolver for Docker. Change to your own
    resolver 127.0.0.11 [::1];
    # If adding $args and it's empty, it does a redirect.
    # Then, add $args only if not empty
    set $redirect_uri "$scheme://$server_name$1/?scheme=api&datastructure=rest";
    if ($args) {
        set $redirect_uri "$scheme://$server_name$1/?$args&scheme=api&datastructure=rest";
    }
    proxy_pass $redirect_uri;
}

Usage

Initialize the component:

\PoP\Root\AppLoader::addComponentClassesToInitialize([
    \PoP\RESTAPI\Component::class,
]);

Append /api/rest/ to the URL to fetch the pre-defined fields, and optionally add a query URL parameter to retrieve specific data fields using this syntax.

Examples:

Single post, default fields:
{single-post-url}/api/rest/

Single post, custom fields:
{single-post-url}/api/rest/?query=id|title|author.id|name

Collection of posts, default fields:
{post-list-url}/api/rest/

Collection of posts, custom fields:
{post-list-url}/api/rest/?query=id|title|author.id|name
