Query and Orchestrate the ‘WordPress’ ‘API’


‘WordPress’ has a fairly comprehensive ‘API’ https://developer.wordpress.com/ that makes it possible to perform blog orchestration (‘CRUD’ operations on posts, users, sites, etc.) as well as retrieve and process blog statistics. Tools are provided to work with the ‘WordPress’ ‘API’ functions.

WordPress API requiring authentication means you have to do the OAuth2 dance, and most API calls require authentication. That means you need to start off working with the WordPress API in/from pressur using the wp_auth() function. For that to work, YOU MUST::

=> Go here and make an app: https://developer.wordpress.com/apps/

=> Put the Client ID you receive into ~/.Renviron with a line that looks like:


=> Put the Client Secret you receive into ~/.Renviron with a line that looks like:


And start with a fresh R session for any of this to even have a remote possibility of working.

I’ll make friendlier documentation for ^^ in the near future.


Only minimal functionality is provided at present (enough to get stats out).

You are encouraged to poke around the source and contribute PRs or issues for high priority items you’d like to see in the package.

#What’s Inside The Tin

# or
