API stands for Application Programming Interface. APIs exist to help integrate data or tools from a program into your own website. Engineers can use APIs to build applications that pull data from multiple systems and make them visible in one system. As a result, APIs can be a very powerful way to quickly extend any application.  In addition, application performance interfaces can also be used to push data from the main system.

In conclusion, the WordPress API enables developers to extend the platform using themes, plugins, and add-on interfaces.  Learn more about the WordPress API here.
