I want to get the count of my posts.
I think use
wp-json/wp/v2/categories?page=1 >> count
it’s a good way to go.

is there any way/tutorial/… enable me to add the post count in a main call?
like this route:
The WP Rest API sends the total count(found_posts) property from WP_Query. in a header called
FOR POSTS: you can make a call to posts endpoint of the REST API
The value for posts count is returned in the header as
