BP JSON REST API @modemloooper. @marmaduka has volunteered to help. @djpaulgibbs and @boonebgorges were in agreement that the project would go through some documentation/vision phases before starting to write code. The BP JSON REST API would be introduced into core when the feature is “complete”, i.e., all read-only endpoints or an entire component, etc. This will be built as a plugin first. @djpaulgibbs also suggested that the eventual BP REST API plugin/module/eventual core integration require modern PHP.
