Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am creating one wordpress widget plugin that display different types of social media fans and followers counts. After that I feel that i also include Stack Overflow reputation for specific users. How can i get the Stack Overflow reputation for any user? is there any api for that ?

Yes, there is. The method you're looking for is /users/{ID}. Example:

http://api.stackoverflow.com/1.1/users/1

Which returns JSON data looking like this:

{
  "users": [
    {
      "reputation": 17246,
      ...
    }
}

Keep in mind that if you are using JavaScript to access the API, you will need to use JSONP.

Since now 1.1 is deprecated the following url is to be used to get the reputation score:

/2.2/users/{id}?order=desc&sort=reputation&site=stackoverflow

See the docs for /users/{ids}/reputation.
