Thx for the wiki lookup on api.
The details of what it does are not defined by simply using the term api.
No, you are right. Never the less, a certain expectation is associated with the term. That expectation is formed by the countless api’s out there.
If you want to use an “api” for syncing inputs… well you found your gem.
It still does not make sense to me to use and “api” to fetch informations which are already present.
Also thanks for the link you posted. I appreciate people that point others into the right direction.
I decided after all to not go with jquery but to use fetch in combination with acf to REST which i can recommend to anybody doing more then syncing inputs.
