The WP-API is one of the least known features of WP, and little is known on how to customize it. This plugin outputs the JSON you need into however many endpoints you wish. CRUD operations are supported. ACF support is now in Beta. Love it! Go Adriano!

Reached out to the plugin developers with a feature request -- received a quick response and the feature was immediately added to the next release. Excellent responsiveness and great tool for creating custom API routes for a WP install!

This plugin is awesome! I got the pro version, and it allows me to easily create endpoints for my custom database tables so I can access it and display that data on other devices like a mobile app. I had some questions and needed support, and Adriano provided lightning fast support and got my questions answered and problems solved. Would recommend this to anyone looking to create custom endpoints or expose your database to the outside world. Made my life so much easier, and the Pro version is definitely worth it!

I was exploring different options to expose my custom data (custom posts and taxonomies along with custom fields) and after trying many things I found this plugin. I first tried the free plugin which was good and it compelled me to go for the premium version for advanced features. I'm glad to share here that the pro version is even great & amazing! And specially I would like to thank the development team of this plugin for providing great support going the extra mile. Please keep up the good work guys! 🙂
