 The reference located in the handbook is currently some copy pasta magic.
 Moving into the future, it will be important to keep the reference up to
 date and accurate; automation is essential. It will be equally important
 to look at different versions of the API, as it has been changing quite a
 bit. There are four primary goals to this plugin:

 (1) Produce HTML
 (2) Provide a way to add extra human-readable documentation for each field
 (3) Handle versioning correctly
 (4) Handle any site

 To best accommodate these four needs, a JavaScript based browser
 application will most likely work best. By taking this approach external
 authentication is not necessary. It will also provide a neat little plugin
 that other WordPress installations can use to manage their API reference.

 I should have an MVP running by Friday, and would love other people's
 opinions/help. Development will happen here https://github.com/BE-
