From the JSON API plugin doc

I notice that I can get the post within some category


And I can also search the post


However, are there anyway to implement search within some category? Thanks

    please provide a link at minimum to your post so we know which plugin you are referencing. I imagine you will also get better support for the plugin by going directly to the author first since this does not seem like a WordPress specific question. Commented Apr 24, 2014 at 13:37

For finding post with specific category, Here is solution.

Use https://wordpress.org/plugins/json-api/ plugin

And fire http://localhost:8080/wordpress/wp-json/wp/v2/posts?filter[category_name]=android

Change category name instead of android.
