POData - OData for the Poor PHP Developer

POData (pronounced like the sandwich) a is an OData service framework for PHP Developers. PHP Developers are dirt poor because they are not afforded a nice OData toolkit, but POData eliminates their poverty and brings the bountiful wealth of OData to the masses!.

POData vs odataphpprod

POData started as a fork of The OData Producer Library for PHP. Many thanks to that project for making this one possible. The many goals of this fork are best tracked in the issues list but here are some highlights:

  • OData v3 Compliant
  • Full BreezeJS & JayData support (we love those libraries)
  • Availability via Composer
  • Simpler to plug in to common PHP frameworks (Zend, Symphony, Laravel)
  • Produce sample services that pass OData Validation
  • Offers your provider implementation more control on how to best execute the OData Query
  • Optimized $expand support
  • Support for an Annotation Based Provider Implementation
  • Create, Update, & Delete support
  • Transaction support

Long term goals include:

  • OData v4 Support

MVC Integrations

It's likely POData will execute in the context of an Web MVC Framework. As such, the framework has probably already done a lot of the parsing for you and it makes no sense to have POData reinvent the wheel. As such, some MVC adapters are available to bridge the MVC framework to POData.
