REST API (Representational State Transfer Application Programming Interface) is a web API that enables developers to connect external applications to WordPress.

It allows accessing WordPress data and functionality through HTTP requests in formats such as JSON and XML.

It is considered a powerful tool for WordPress developers as it offers a standardized way to interact with WordPress data, allowing third-party applications to interact with WordPress sites easily.

With the REST API, developers can create applications and tools that can consume or manipulate WordPress content and data in ways that were not possible before.

It enables users to easily interact with WordPress from different devices, including mobile and desktop applications. The REST API was integrated into the WordPress core in version 4.4 and has since then been improved with every major WordPress release.
