Joseph Crawford's Blog:
MySpace PHP REST Library
April 30, 2009 @ 10:25:55

For those still looking to interface with MySpace, Joseph Crawford has pointed out an official REST library for PHP to connect with their API.

Over the last few days I have been digging deep into the concepts of REST. I have been reading through my copy of RESTful Web Services. Out of curiosity I searched Google for a "php REST library" and it turned up the Official MySpace PHP REST Library.

He points out one interesting thing about it, though - it's like they started using an object-oriented design but build after making the classes with properties. No methods.

Even if they were to choose to go the PHP 5 way I would highly suggest that they do not use classes as containers for constants, there is no need to do this. It is not using proper OOP methodologies. Why create an object that just holds 2 - 4 constant variables, these would be better suited for define() calls in my opinion.

WaxJelly Blog:
The easiest way to scrape details from a MySpace profile page with PHP
March 20, 2007 @ 10:41:00

From the WaxJelly blog today comes a handy bit of code for anyone out there looking to scrape details from just about any MySpace page out there (quick and easy).

It's amazing how just a little optimization on the part of myspace makes crawling their site so much easier. We're going to scrape the user detail (name, age, sex, etc..) from a profile, using the header info...

The script grabs the contents of the given URL, loops through, pulls out the meta tag information and uses that as a key to grab the rest of the user's information (including name, age, city, state, etc).
