Micropub 101

micropub clients are meant to send POST requests of content, formatted in a Microformats2 structure, to the endpoint chosen by the user using the client

it’s up to the micropub server, to handle those requests, however it sees fit.

The WordPress Micropub plugin listens to requests to the REST API endpoint, which is the endpoint used, and creates a post in the default post type. Parses out all the data and assigns as needed.

Clients are only in charge of well formatted POST HTTP requests, servers do all the actual heavy lifting with the data
