Getting started

In the following a few explanations about the important parts of the API.

  • src/Sample/Api/Population/Collection.php
    This is the class which represents the /population endpoint

  • src/Sample/Service/Population.php
    Service class which contains the business logic of the API.

  • src/Sample/Dependency/Container.php
    DI container which overwrites the connection service to use a sqlite database.

  • tests/Sample/Api/Population/CollectionTest.php Contains the PHPUnit test case for the /population endpoint. If you have phpunit installed you can run the tests in the root of the project with the phpunit command.
