Rest Routes 5.0

Write Custom SQL Queries and make HTTP requests

By Adriano Ferreira

We are pleased to announce the 5.0 release of Rest Routes. We have been cooking this release for a long time and it is finally ready! We have fixed a bunch of bugs as well as introduced a couple of really exciting features.

Custom SQL Queries

For everyone who was waiting for this feature, it is finally out! You have a fancy new endpoint type that lets you write custom SQL queries and output the results in the endpoint output. You can do any kind of advanced SQL query.


Documentation: How to create a custom endpoint with custom SQL queries


REST API Call

This is another advanced endpoint type that has been introduced in this version. You will be able to through your custom endpoint make HTTP calls to external endpoints.

Conditional Display of Fields

We added the possibility now to conditionally output some fields, depending on certain settings.

Enhanced Support to ACF

We know that many of our clients are using ACF, for this we have extended the compatibility we have with ACF. You should be able to do everything that you need with both single fields and repeating ones: custom field filtering, editing, and creation.


We wrote better documentation about the integration we have with ACF, you can find it here.


UX improvements

We have added 2 important elements that should help you to manage the settings of your custom endpoints.


Now, you will find 2 new buttons in the field section of output and filter areas. One button will let you change the order of the field in the output, so you have 2 arrows to change the order.


The other button will let you collapse the field area, so you don’t need to keep seeing the configuration of all fields that you have in the endpoint. That gives you more focus on which field you are currently working on.


We hope you love this version as much as we loved creating it. Let us know what you think about it!
