Add managed metadata term store operations to REST API
Currently term store operations are only available via JSOM. It would be nice to see this added to the REST API as well.
Thank you for your input around this topic. We are now closely looking into this, since it’s relatively common ask from the field. Stay tuned.
Indeed. Now SharePoint Framework has been released it becomes even more important. As there are projects like PnP JS Core which are claiming it as well: https://github.com/SharePoint/PnP-JS-Core/issues/415

This right here. This is one thing that would make a lot of custom work more consistent. Would rather do everything REST, but this is lacking.
Still don't understand why this has not been taken up for implementation even in the latest release.Voted Up !
This is a HUGE gap in the REST arsenal, IMO. There's no logical reason I can think of why managed metadata needs to be orphaned. Let's vote it up!

Agreed -- most times, term stores live in other LOB systems, and tools to allow us to automate synch of these would be most helpful.
