README

A Laravel Service Provider for League/Fractal.

Installation

Add laravel-fractal to your composer.json file:

"require": {
    "gathercontent/laravel-fractal": "~0.1"
}

Get composer to install the package:

$ composer update gathercontent/laravel-fractal

Registering the Package

Register the service provider within the providers array found in app/config/app.php:

'providers' => array(
    // ...
    'GatherContent\LaravelFractal\LaravelFractalServiceProvider'
)

Add an alias within the aliases array found in app/config/app.php:

'aliases' => array(
    // ...
    'Fractal' => 'GatherContent\LaravelFractal\LaravelFractalFacade',
)

Configuration

To override the default configuration, you can publish the config files to your application. Artisan can do this automatically for you via the command line:

$ php artisan config:publish gathercontent/laravel-fractal

Usage

Basic Example

Formatting a single item:

// routes.php
Route::get('/me', array('before' => 'auth', function () {
    return Fractal::item(Auth::user(), new UserTransformer);
}));

Formatting a collection:

// routes.php
Route::get('/comments', function () {
    return Fractal::collection(Comment::all(), new CommentTransformer);
});

Adding meta data:

// routes.php
Route::get('/comments', function () {
    return Fractal::collection(Comment::all(), new CommentTransformer, function ($resources) {
        $resources->setMetaValue('foo', 'bar');
    });
});

Returning a paginated collection:

// routes.php
Route::get('/comments', function () {
    return Fractal::collection(Comment::paginate(), new CommentTransformer);
});

Using a custom pagination adapter:

// routes.php
Route::get('/comments', function () {
    $comments = Comment::paginate();
    $adapter = new MyIlluminatePaginationAdapter($comments);
    return Fractal::collection($comments, new CommentTransformer, null, $adapter);
});
