View Full Version : JSON Request with Wordpress JSON API

14 Feb 2011, 2:04 AM

I am new to Sencha Touch, but I am very excited about it.
As my first application I would like to make a little app with the posts of my wordpress site. I am using a JSON API plugin to get the JSON. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/json-api/

I use a template to show the posts

var postsComponent = new Ext.Component({
title: 'Posts',
scroll: 'vertical',
tpl: [
'<tpl for=".">',
' <div>',
' <p>{title}</p>',
' </div>',



And here I get the data for my template

getPosts = function(){

url: 'http://winckelmans.net/wordpress/?json=get_recent_posts',
callback: function(data){


But it seems like the callback function is never executed.
What am I doing wrong?

url: 'http://your-url.com/api/get_recent_posts/',
callbackKey: 'callback',
callback: function(data) {
var posts = data.posts;;

Thank you
when I use http://your-url.com/api/get_recent_posts/ as url, it works. Weird

Hi guys,
I'm wondering if you'd be willing to share your learnings & even example files around using Wordpress, JSON & Sencha Touch to create apps.

I'm looking to create an app using this method (then hopefully compiling into a native app using PhoneGap) for a non-profit over the next couple months, as both a personal challenge & to help them in their mission. Wordpress (with the JSON API) just seems like such an obvious content repository.. would be really cool to prove it out.

Would you guys be game to share (ideally template files, but even just wisdom or pointers)? Of course, anything I end up using & modifying, I'll share back with you.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Hey Guys,

I'm pretty new to JS and ST and want to create an app for my wordpress blog. I installed the JSON API too but not sure or well enough to use it in ST. It would be really nice to get some further informations how to handle the JS in ST to get a view of my posts. Especially a sample code would be awesome!

I think it shoukd be something like this:

Ext.setup({ onReady: function() {

Ext.regModel('Posts', {
fields: ['id', 'type', 'slug', 'url', 'status', 'title', 'content', 'date']

var store = new Ext.data.JsonStore({
model : 'Posts',
proxy: {
type: 'scripttag',
url : 'http://wordpressblog.url.net/?json=get_recent_posts',
reader: {
type: 'json',
root: 'posts'

var list = new Ext.List({
itemTpl : '{title} <span class="date">{date}</span>',
store: store

var listPanel = new Ext.Panel({
title: 'All Posts',
fullscreen: true,
dockedItems: [
dock : 'top',
xtype: 'toolbar',
title: 'My blog'

I'm having the same confusion as Vinzcent, I get no errors, but no data either. Should I be using a script to tease out the var/value pairs in the array?

Forgive me but I am noob.
