Resta api offers the ideal structure for your application and gives you great pleasure in writing code.

Developments are still in progress. The documentation section of the code will be available in beta soon.

What are the features of the Resta?

Resta Quick Start

If you want to have a quick start to resta. Just take a look at this short document. You will need to install it first, as with any framework or package. We need a composer installer to install the resta api. If you don't have a composer installer, please composer Check out this link.

How to install the resta?

$ composer create-project php-resta/skeleton company_name dev-master

company_name: The directory to which you will install the resta api is generally a group name that is valid for your company name or projects.Thus, your api projects will be in this general directory.

Your resta skeleton structure is now ready.

$ cd company_name

You can pass to the home directory of your project using the terminal command.

Create your first project.

Now it's time to create our project.Your project will be created in the src/app directory.Let's create a project named demo with the command below.

$ php api project create demo

If you get a response similar to the following, Oh! Excellent. You now have a new project called demo.

$  > Application called as "Demo" has been successfully created in the /path/company_name/src/app/Demo/

Your project is located in the directory called src/app/Demo. Below you can see the structure of your project.

This project structure is created by default with each project command.You can find out how to customize this structure in documents. Since this section is a quick start, we won't write here what these directory structures do. We'll just show you how to quickly reach your endpoints.

Access your endpoints with the browser.


Now open your browser and enter the above address via localhost or ip. As mentioned earlier, the directory where you create the resta skeleton repository structure will be your company_name name.

"meta": {
"success": false,
"status": 401,
"illuminator": null
"resource": {
"errorMessage": "No Endpoint"

Congratulations! You took the first exception output :). Don't worry, you haven't done anything yet.

Create your first controller structure.

$ php api controller create demo controller:users

Then let's create our first endpoint.Try creating your first controller with the command above.

$  > Controller called as "Users" has been successfully created in the /path/company_name/src/app/Demo/Api/V1/Controllers

Great! Your first controller has been successfully created. Now you'll see a controller directory created by looking into the V1 directory. We will not describe the structure in this directory in this section. You will already find detailed information in our documents.

http://localhost/company_name/public/demo/v1/users //the same as the above request.

Now open your browser again and change the URL string that you specified with the demo to demo/users and send the request.

"meta": {
"success": true,
"status": 200,
"illuminator": null
"resource": {
"endpoint": "Users"

This is great! We now have the first http 200 output.By default the system produces you json.You can find in our documentation how to change it. This output is called as endpoint "users" and has a class as UsersController in the "Users" directory.


namespace App\Demo\Api\V1\Controllers\Users;

class UsersController extends App
     * #define: get Users
     * @return mixed|array
    public function index()
        return [
