JSON API Add-on


The new Event Espresso JSON API add-on allows other applications (other websites, mobile apps, etc) to access your Event Espresso data through an application programming interface (API).

Documentation for JSON API add-on
http://eventespresso.com/wiki/json-api-add-on/

The Event Espresso JSON API add-on allows other applications (other websites, mobile apps, etc) to access your Event Espresso data through an JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) application programming interface (API). Using the Event Espresso JSON API, you can get information on all events and attendees, and even check attendees in and out of events. Supposing you have WordPress installed and active on mysite.com, once this add-on is activated you can send an HTTP GET request to http://my-wordpress-website.com/espresso-api/v1/events/public to retrieve all the event information from your site in JSON or XML format, which your client application can then use and display however you like. You can access and work with most of the Event Espresso admin features, allowing you to create solutions based on your needs. The JSON API enables developers to build innovative and engaging applications that can interface with any website that uses the Event Espresso plugin for events, classes, meetings, scrapbook conventions, concert ticketing, including:

  • Mobile applications (e.g. Event Espresso mobile apps)
  • Custom onsite and offsite calendar integrations
  • Custom event lists with role based (public/private) access to event data
  • Custom website app integrations
  • Role-based access to attendee data
  • Cached database queries
  • Offsite registration forms (coming soon)
  • Ability to create customized analytics
