Latest Stable Version Build Status Minimum PHP Version

This is a very simple library designed to facilitate the implementation of simple, lightweight article feeds, where articles can be anything you like.

It can be installed in whichever way you prefer, but we recommend Composer.

$ composer require graze/feed

The interface

The core of the library is Graze\Feed\FeedInterface which looks like this:

interface FeedInterface
     * @param integer $number
     * @return boolean
    public function supports($number);

     * @param integer $number
     * @return array
    public function supply($number);

The idea being that any feed which you create can be queried to see if it supports a given number of articles (supports($number)) and, if so, can supply those articles (supply($number)).

The abstract class

The Graze\Feed\AbstractFeed class is designed to let you implement a single protected method (getArticles) and then handles some boilerplate around 'supporting' and 'supplying' these articles. N.B. this class will throw a LogicException if you request more articles than are supported by its supports method - always check if the feed 'supports' a given number of articles before telling it to give you them.

Some batteries included

There's also an implementation of a basic article feed, and a random article feed, as well as a stack feed, that takes an array of Graze\Feed\FeedInterface as the only argument to its constructor and lets you create a meta-feed that will defer to each of the provided feeds in turn until it finds a supported one.
