Rest API

eZ Publish is introducing a RESTful web service in order to support the development of mobile applications, or even desktop applications. The REST API is built on top of MVCTools from eZ/Zeta Components

This is the documentation for version 1 of the REST API.

eZ Publish 5 comes with a completely rewritten one, that supports full read & write, and is much more advanced. You can read about it on the new official documentation:

The REST API for eZ Publish seeks to make the content and the features of an eZ Publish installation available to external clients. The first phase of development centers around providing read-only access to the data within the installation, and for ways to easily extend the REST interface with custom functionality.

Implemented features:

  • Basic content retrieval
  • REST API extension mechanism
  • REST API versioning
  • OAuth authentication

This new service is described on these pages:
