 Hello i tried to validate JSON SCHEMA using online validators from https

 Looks like the schema does not pass any validator. I would like to
 generate some client code in different languages but all of them says
 schema is invalid.

 Overall i couldn't find a way to get the schema directly from wordpress
 documentation. After some googling i found out i have to call `curl -X
 OPTIONS https://mydomain.com/wp-json/wp/v2/posts` and then there's a
 nested 'schema' property.

 Also the docs at https://developer.wordpress.org/rest-api/reference/posts/
 are kinda missleading because for the 'content' it says 'object' - so that
 can be actually anything?

 I would really like to work with wordpress and the REST API it provides
 but overall i find it pretty difficult.
