Repo Me - wordpress plugin

  • wordpress
  • php
  • repository
  • api
  • app


Access posts based on modified date, for use with clients who cache data and need to request specific updates. Unpublished/deleted posts are included in responses because a client may have already pulled them and needs to unpublish/remove them.


  • datefrom - The start date (based on 'modified')
  • dateto - The end date (based on 'modified')
  • posttype - The type of post to return e.g. post, page or a custom post type
  • customfields[] - The custom fields to include in the response

Custom (potentially non-wordpress) responses

If you include a '[posttype]' file in the plugin folder it will be called when a request for that posttype arrives. This allows your endpoint to serve 'standard' wordpress database data as well as maybe something custom coming from files or elsewhere.

Example response

  • /repome?datefrom=2012-08-09&posttype=post&customfields[]=myfield&customfields[]=myfield2
