WordPress API for iOS

WordPress API for iOS is a library for iOS designed to make sharing on your WordPress blog easy.

It’s not meant to provide access to the full feature set of the WordPress APIs.


Warning: This API is a work in progress, and much of the basic functionality is not implemented yet.


WordPress API uses CocoaPods for easy
dependency management. To install
it, simply add the following line to your Podfile:

pod ‘WordPressApi’

Another option, if you don’t use CocoaPods, is to copy the WordPressApi
folder to your project.

Example usage

Posting a picture

A hypothetical camera app called Cameramattic wants to add an option to share its pictures on WordPress

NSURL *xmlrpcURL = [NSURL URLWithString:@""];
NSString *username = "aUsername";
NSString *password = "thePassword";
NSString *title = "My cat";
NSString *content = "She likes to sleep like that";
UIImage *image = ... // The image to upload

WordPressXMLRPCApi *wp = [[WordPressXMLRPCApi alloc] initWithXMLRPCEndpoint:xmlrpcURL username:username password:password];
[wp publishPostWithImage:(UIImage *)image
             description:(NSString *)content
                   title:(NSString *)title
                 success:^(NSUInteger postId, NSURL *permalink) {
                     NSLog(@"Image post successful with ID %d at %@", postId, permalink);
                 failure:^(NSError *error) {
                     NSLog(@"Post upload failed: %@", [error localizedDescription])
