Lorenzo Ferrara:
Testing Apigility Code-Connected REST APIs
Oct 14, 2013 @ 10:30:18

Lorenzo Ferrara has a recent post to his site involving the recently released Apigility from Zend and how to to create a basic API endpoint (with code) for a REST API (complete with screenshots).

The recently announced Apigility arrives just when I'm experimenting ways to create and maintain my own set of APIs. So I could not resist to giving this new Zend tool a try. [...] The test I'm about to describe involves the creation of a "Fortune Cookie" REST API. I've tried to keep the code as simple as I could. It lacks of basic stuff but it's meant to be that way.

He talks about creating the first API and what kinds of code files were created as a result - a configuration and three for the API itself: a collection, an entity and a resource files. He shows the changes he made to the resource to return static data from a set of fortunes and the entity class to use it. His screenshots show the results of a few REST requests, one for all of the "cookies" and a few others for specific cookie instances.
