I was wondering if it is possible to allow my users to create posts from the front end in an inline editor, similar to content creation on Medium.com? I know there are many options out there for inline editing, but not any for end users to post from the front-end that I'm aware of.

Currently I am using Gravity Forms which allows my users to create posts from the front-end, but it is through a form and not inline. Is there a way to do this so that a post is created after submitting some sort of inline form? Any assistance with this would be really appreciated since I am kind of lost.

Use the WP JSON REST API in conjunction with jQuery.ajax(). It works pretty well with custom endpoints. Just be sure to use nonces.

add_action( 'rest_api_init', function () {
    register_rest_route( 'myplugin/v1', '/author/(?P<id>\d+)', array(
        'methods' => 'GET',
        'callback' => 'my_awesome_func',
    ) );
} );
