David Makin:
Creating a simple REST application with Silex part 2
January 24, 2014 @ 12:17:35

David Makin has posted the second part of his series looking at creating a simple REST API with the help of Silex. You can find part one here to get caught up.

In part 1 you installed Silex and setup 2 routes, / and /{stockcode}. Now lets expand upon those by adding a POST and a DELETE route. The 2 routes we created use GET but to make your application truly useful you will want to use at least 1 more type and that is POST.

He starts by adding a new POST route to handle the creation of a new "toy", complete with a correct response of a 200 code (HTTP for "created"). He follows this with a DELETE example, showing how to return a 204 if the delete works or a server error if something goes wrong. He also includes a curl call to test out the endpoints. In the upcoming third part David will look at breaking up the code a bit and putting it into separate files.
