Thermal API

Build Status

Current API version: v1

Overview

Thermal is the WordPress plugin that gives you the access and control to your content from outside of the WordPress admin. Thermal supports client-based decisions that, when combined with a responsive design framework, allows for a truly responsive application leveraging a WordPress content source.

Versions

In order to support migration, the API plugin will support up to 2 versions of the API. Once a version is more than 1 cycle old, it will no longer respond at it's API root unless configured to do so.

API Root

The URL root of the API will be the version number of the API prefixed by your WordPress site URL and the Voce\Thermal\API_ROOT constant. By default this is set to wp_api but can be overridden by setting it in wp-config.php.

The current API version is v1 so the default URL root is:

http://example.com/wp_api/v1/

Resource Types

The following resources are available

Posts

A post represents a single item of content.

Request
GET {api root}/posts
Parameters

Parameter Data Type Description
Date Filters
m string A compressed datetime string in the format of 'YmdGis' that represents date/time range to filter posts to (.e.g 2012-01-01 13:59:59 is expressed as 20120101135959). As most right most parts of the string are left off, the filter becomes less exact.

Examples:

  • 'm=2012' Only posts from 2012 will be returned; Equivalent to 'year=2012'
  • 'm=201206' Only posts from June 2012 will be returned; Equivalent to 'year=2012&monthnum=6'
  • 'm=20120609' Only posts from June 9th, 2012 will be returned; Equivalent to 'year=2012&monthnum=6&day=9'
year integer 4 digit year (e.g. 2012)
monthum integer Month number (from 1 to 12)
w integer Week of the year (from 0 to 53)
day integer Day of the month (from 0 to 31)
hour integer Hour of the day in 24 hour format (from 0 to 23)
minute integer Minute (from 0 to 59)
second integer Second (from 0 to 59)
before string A parsable formatted date string. Unless specified in the format used, the result will be relative to the timezone of the site.
after string A parsable formatted date string. Unless specified in the format used, the result will be relative to the timezone of the site.
Search Filtering
s string Search keyword or string, by default this searches against the title and post_content By default, the search expression is split into individual terms.
exact boolean Default false. If true, the search will omit the wildcard '%' wrapper, making it so that at least one searched fields be an exact match.
sentence boolean Default false. If true, the search string will not be split up into individual tokens and the expression will be matched in its entirety.
Taxonomy Filters
cat array|integer The term_id of the category to include. An array of IDs will also be accepted.
category_name string The slug of a single category.
tag string The slug of a single tag
taxonomy associative array An associative array where the key is the name of the taxonomy and the value is an array of term IDs. Post that exist in any of the terms will be included in the results. Only public taxonomies will be recognized.
Pagination Filters
paged integer A positive integer specifiying the page (or subset of results) to return. This filter will automatically determine the offset to use based on the per_page and paged. Using this filter will cause include_found to be true.
per_page integer The maximum number of posts to return. The value must range from 1 to MAX_POSTS_PER_PAGE.
offset integer The number of posts to skip over before returning the result set.
Ordering Parameters
orderby array|string Sort the results by the given identifier. Defaults to 'date'. Supported values are:
  • 'none' - No ordering will be applied.
  • 'ID' - The ID of the post.
  • 'author' - The value of the author ID.
  • 'title' - The title of the post.
  • 'name' - The slug/name of the post.
  • 'date' - (Default) Publish date of the post.
  • 'modified' - Last modified date of the post.
  • 'parent'- The ID of the post's parent
  • 'rand' - A random order, Note: due to caching, the order may not change on every request.
  • 'comment_count' - The number of comments the post has.
  • 'menu_order' - The set menu order for the post.
  • 'post__in' - Preserves the order supplied in the post__in filter. This is ignored unless the post__in filter is supplied.

Orderby will also accept an array of multiple identifiers.

order string The order direction. Options are 'ASC' and 'DESC'. Default is 'DESC'
General Filters
author_name string The user_nicename of the author.
author integer The ID of the authors to include. An array of IDs will also be accepted. Negative ID's can be used to denote exclusion.
post__in array|integer An array of post ID's to include.
p integer A single post ID
name string The post_name or slug of the post
pagename string The post_name or slug of the post. Will cause the post_type filter to default to 'page'
attachment string The post_name or slug of the post. Will cause the post_type filter to default to 'attachment'.
attachment_id integer Synonym to 'p' filter.
subpost string Synonym for 'attachment' filter.
subpost_id integer Synonym for 'attachment_id' filter.
post_type array|string The post types to be included in the result set.
post_status array|string Default to 'publish'. The post statii to include in the result set. Note that the statii passed in are run through capability checks for the current user.
post_parent__in array|integer Array or single Post ID to pull child posts from.
Response Altering Parameters
include_found boolean Defaut to false. When true, the response will include a found rows count. There is some overhead in generating the total count so this should only be turned on when needed. This is automatically turned on if the 'paged' filter is used.
callback string When set, the response will be wrapped in a JSONP callback.

	'found': 40, //only provided if include_found == true

##Terms Terms are individual classifications within a taxonomy.

Methods

List

Request
GET {api root}/taxonomies/{name}/terms
Parameters
Parameter Data Type Description
Pagination Filters
paged integer A positive integer specifiying the page (or subset of results) to return. This filter will automatically determine the offset to use based on the per_page and paged. Using this filter will cause include_found to be true.
per_page integer The maximum number of posts to return. The value must range from 1 to MAX_TERMS_PER_PAGE.
offset integer The number of posts to skip over before returning the result set.
Ordering Parameters
orderby string Sort the results by the given identifier. Defaults to 'name'. Supported values are:
  • 'name' - The user readable name of the term.
  • 'slug' - The slug of the term.
  • 'count' - The number of posts the term is connected to.
order string The order direction. Options are 'ASC' and 'DESC'. Default is 'DESC'
General Filters
in array|integer An array of term ID's to include.
slug string A term slug to include.
parent id Include the children of the provided term ID.
hide_empty boolean If true, only terms with attached posts will be returned. Default is true.
pad_counts boolean If true, count all of the children along with the term. Default is false.
Response Altering Parameters
include_found boolean Defaut to false. When true, the response will include a found rows count. There is some overhead in generating the total count so this should only be turned on when needed. This is automatically turned on if the 'paged' filter is used.
callback string When set, the response will be wrapped in a JSONP callback.
