Description

a year ago
For the creation of the new Firefox content hub pages, we're going to need a few new features added to the BlogArticle helper [1]

1.) We'd like to pull in a thumbnail image for each article (image URL)
2.) We'd like to pull in tags (categories) for each article
3.) We'd like to be able to display (x) articles based on (y) tag

For reference, a rough prototype of a hub page in question that would use this can be seen here (blogs section toward the bottom):

I think the best way to do this is to change how we consume our blogs. All of our blogs are run on a recent enough version of Wordpress that they all include v2 of the JSON API[0]. This will give us everything we want including tags, categories, and featured media.

For the images I recommend we store the URL and simply hotlink to the image hosted on our blog. "*.mozilla.org" is already whitelisted in our CSP for images, so we can load images from blog.mozilla.org. This will be quick and easy to implement, and if we need to later we can improve things so that they're pulled in and processed. But Wordpress provides several sizes of each image via the API[1].

With all of the data from the API I can easily provide simple tools for filtering via tags and/or categories as well as getting a post thumbnail URL.

Bug 1353794: Add app to consume and store wordpress data

Fetches wordpress data via the JSON API. Fetches tags and
featured media if present as well.

Also add blog post generic view and QS methods to filter by blog and/or tags easily.
