README

This module provides structure and code for quickly implementing RESTful APIs that use JSON as a transport.

It allows you to create RESTful JSON APIs that use the following standards:

  • HAL, used for creating hypermedia links
  • Problem API, used for reporting API problems

Documentation is available at rtfd.org.

Upgrading

If you were using version 1.0.0 or earlier (the version presented at PHP Benelux 2013), you will need to make some changes to your application to get it to work.

  • First, the terminology has changed, as have some class names, to reference "resources" instead of "items"; this is more in line with RESTful terminology.
    • As such, if you had any code using PhlyRestfully\HalItem, it should now reference PhlyRestfully\HalResource. Similarly, in that class, you will access the actual resource object now from the resource property instead of the item property. (This should only affect those post-1.0.0).
    • If you want to create link for an individual resource, use the forResource method of HalLinks, and not the forItem method.
    • InvalidItemException was renamed to InvalidResourceException.
  • A number of items were moved from the RestfulJsonModel to the RestfulJsonRenderer.
    • Hydrators
    • The flag for displaying exception backtraces; in fact, you can use the view_manager.display_exceptions configuration setting to set this behavior.
  • All results from the ResourceController are now pushed to a payload variable in the view model.
    • Additionally, ApiProblem, HalResource, and HalCollection are first-class objects, and are used as the payload values.
  • The Links plugin was renamed to HalLinks, and is now also available as a view helper.
