Is it possible to create a blog from JSON data?

Hi all,

I'm looking to create a blog using Wordpress as a backend. I was able to get the data from Wordpress with the REST API plugin and am looking to take that JSON data and use it in a separate front-end (outside of the Wordpress environment).

I understand I could create something like a single-page application that would allow me to display the data I retrieve from Wordpress, but I'm looking to take it one step further and give each of the post objects their own URL. It sounds like I may have to take the JSON data and import it to my Express app's (Node.js) database, but is that the only option?

If so, how could I go about doing that?
