Development Status

The framework is currently in development and subject to frequent change. A stable version with tagged release will be made available when ready.


composer create-project johnsquibb/rest-api:dev-main


Point the desired web server at the public directory and modify the contents of index.php to add additional controller search paths.


Use the builtin PHP server to serve from the public directory during development:

php -S localhost:8080 -t public

Then visit: http://localhost:8080/api to view the demo.

The Demo resource at http://localhost:8080/api/demo provides the following operations:

  • GET (collection)
  • GET (item)
  • POST (create item)
  • PUT (update item)
  • DELETE (item)
