Ian Selby's Blog:
Making RESTful Requests in PHP
May 15, 2009 @ 07:57:19

In a new post to his blog Ian Selby looks at working with REST requests in PHP. He includes some of the basics of REST too, for those not completely familiar with the term.

APIs have become a very commonplace part of many popular web sites and services...especially REST APIs. I've already discussed how you can roll your own REST API for your PHP apps, but I've also received countless requests to go over how to actually make RESTful requests. That's exactly what we'll take a look at in this article

His tool of choice is the curl extension, making it simple to create a class wrapper with methods like executePost, executeGet, setAuth and, of course, execute. He outlines the class and gives the code blocks that fit inside each of the major functions. In the end you'll have a class that can make GET, POST, PUT and DELETE requests and be able to correctly parse the response.
