UI help items via API

I love ghost and am working on an API based program to help speed up/automate my process. In the web UI there are some tricks like TK and /youtube that allow you to make nicely formatted post.

Can I use those same tricks via the API? I didn’t see anything in the documentation, so I figured I’d ask. I am pretty sure it is No, but I might have missed it.

TK is done client-side, you can see part of the implementation in the plugin and context

The YouTube embed is an alias to the generic URL embed - source
