Framework to read data

v0.8.2 2023-02-26 18:51 UTC

This package is auto-updated.

Last update: 2024-06-09 16:44:33 UTC


The purpose of this package is to help read data from APIs and other external sources.


  • Download data via HTTP APIs
  • Throw exceptions on failed requests
  • Supports REST and GraphQL
  • Decode data from a variety of formats (e.g. JSON, Markdown)
  • Automated debug information (logging and time profiling)
  • Cache requests to increase performance
  • Tools to help detect whether data has changed since last request
  • Transform data (e.g. convert source category to match local category name)

Planned for the future:

  • Validate data items to see whether they contain required data properties
  • Efficient bulk API queries via concurrent requests
  • Download data via local, FTP, S3 filesystem (via Flysystem)


Please note this software is in development, usage may change before the 1.0 release.



Install via Composer:

composer require strata/data:^0.8


See docs - these are currently being cleaned up and we plan to publish better docs for v0.10.
