Joomla can now finally take a REST! Techjoomla has released the long awaited REST API for Joomla. The release is released under the GPL license & is completely free to download & use.
Built on an architecture similar to XMLRPC, this API is easily extendible using plugins. So if you have an extension need a REST API for it, just write a plugin. This is just a pilot release so that people can start giving ideas & start contributing.. We shall be improving the code & the structure over time & also add a lot more methods. The REST API has been made available under the GPL license. If you are interested in contributing, jump in & fork it on GitHub ! It can be downloaded for free from https://github.com/techjoomla/Joomla-REST-API
