Lorna Mitchell's Blog:
Building A RESTful PHP Server Understanding the Request
January 19, 2012 @ 10:02:18

In this new post to her blog Lorna Mitchell starts off a new series (based on popular demand) looking at building an RESTful server in PHP. Back to basics - no framework, just PHP.

In the first part of this (probably) 3-part series, we'll begin with the basics. It might seem boring, but the most important thing to get right with REST is parsing all the various elements of the HTTP request and responding accordingly. I've put in code samples from from a small-scale toy project I created to make me think about the steps involved.

Her "basics" include:

  • the routing to send everything to the main index file (a "front controller" of sorts) with the .htaccess settings included
  • Handling the incoming request with a "Request" class
  • Parsing the incoming parameters from the "php://input" stream
