Hydra is a lightweight vocabulary to create hypermedia-driven Web APIs. By specifying a number of concepts commonly used in Web APIs it renders the creation of generic API clients possible.

This is a Symfony2 bundle which shows how easily Hydra can be integrated in modern Web frameworks. It acts as a proof of concept to show how Hydra can simplify the implementation of interoperable and evolvable RESTful APIs.

WARNING: This is highly experimental stuff that isn't ready for production use yet.

You can install this bundle by running

or by adding the package to your composer.json file directly

After you have installed the package, you just need to add the bundle to your AppKernel.php file:

This bundle heavily uses the Doctrine Common project and is inspired by its object relational mapper. The code generation is based on Sensio's SensioGeneratorBundle.
