Making a simple quiz plugin using React and the WP REST API
If you’ve ever wanted to build something, anything, with the WordPress REST API but were not sure where to start or what to build, try making a plugin for a simple single page app like a quiz.
In this talk, I'll go over the tools used and resources needed for me to learn enough to make a simple quiz plugin using the WP REST API and React having never used either before. I’ll spend some on the pain points (spoiler: not WP REST API related), what just worked, what needs to be improved and what I still need to learn. This is not a how-to talk, it’s more of a you-could-do-this-too-so-go-for-it talk meant to inspire you to try it for yourself.
Presented by JJ Jay (https://twitter.com/tharsheblows). JJ is a freelance full stack developer in London who makes custom websites for clients. Her first paid work on the internet was with Mumsnet in 2005, after which she careened through CMS’s before settling on WordPress with relief.
