WP REST API is a cool solution for the developers who want to interact with their WordPress blogs programmatically. It’s handy and pretty useful. However, the documentation lacks some working examples which makes a lot of people confused. I’ve started to document some working examples at http://wpapi.xyz. The list is small, but it’s growing.

Anyway, I’ve made a small video tutorial last night to demonstrate how to authenticated yourself using OAuth2 and make some authenticated calls to your WP REST API endpoint. There are hundreds of confused users floating out there looking for a solution, and I hope this video will fix it. Let me know if you find it useful.
