SitePoint PHP Blog:
Popular Photos, Filters and User Profiles with the 500px API
Mar 05, 2015 @ 11:26:50

The SitePoint PHP blog has started off a new series this morning to help you create a custom Laravel application based on the 500px photo community site. In this first part of the series they help you get the application up and running and connected to the 500px API.

500px is a photo community for discovering, sharing, buying and selling inspiring photography. In this article we are going to explore their API and build a small showcase app. Let’s get started.

You'll need to have Laravel set up and working to get started on the tutorial, but they help you get the other libraries installed and configured (like Guzzle). They start with getting a list of the most popular photos from the API, connecting it to your account via an OAuth token. A base route is created and connected to a controller/action with a view to render each of the photos in their own divs. They then add in a bit of Javascript to create a "Load More" button that makes another call, with pagination, to pull in more photo details. Finally they show you how to create the user profile page, grabbing user information and related photos and rendering them out to a page.
