is there any official REST API in Joomla? If yes I would like to retrieve Contacts from Components, do you have any advice on how to achieve it?

  • If I rightly remember, a new PR has been submitted to J4 for this. Not sure if it is what you'd be looking for...

this component appears to do what you want, https://github.com/techjoomla/com_api

I haven't used it yet, but have been considering it for a project as it looks like it handles the core components.
