Blitz Agency Blog:
REST Service Routing with PHP and Apache
November 19, 2010 @ 12:12:55

New on the Blitz Agency blog Adam Venturella walks you through his process of creating a simple REST service routing system with the PHP and Apache combination that has the same concepts as Sinatra routing.

This is just a quickie. I had spent some time creating a routing system in PHP for services. The goal was to bypass .htaccess or a vhost configuration file. Basically, I wanted to map endpoints (HTTP methods + paths) to PHP methods. My goal at the time was something similar to Sinatra and/or MVC2 routes.

He shows examples from both the Sinatra documentation and a code example from a MVC2 project that uses the same ideas. His first show with PHP proved to not quite be the right way, so he opted for a combination of Apache mod_rewrite and some PHP to take the mapped values and execute. It also includes support fo rthe "X-HTTP-Method-Override" header if you happen to need it.
