Webservice

Build Status Coverage Total Downloads License

Bringing the power of the CakePHP ORM to your favourite webservices.

Install

Using Composer:

composer require muffin/webservice

You then need to load the plugin. You can use the shell command:

bin/cake plugin load Muffin/Webservice

Usage

As an ORM

Create driver

<?php
namespace App\Webservice\Driver;

use Cake\Network\Http\Client;
use Muffin\Webservice\AbstractDriver;

class Articles extends AbstractDriver
{
    /**
     * Initialize is used to easily extend the constructor.
     */
    public function initialize()
    {
        $this->setClient(new Client([
            'host' => 'example.com'
        ]));
    }
}

Create a webservice

<?php
namespace App\Webservice;

use Muffin\Webservice\Query;
use Muffin\Webservice\ResultSet;
use Muffin\Webservice\Webservice\Webservice;

class ArticlesWebservice extends Webservice
{
    /**
     * Executes a query with the read action using the Cake HTTP Client
     */
    protected function _executeReadQuery(Query $query, array $options = [])
    {
        $response = $this->getDriver()->getClient()->get('/articles.json');

        if (!$response->isOk()) {
            return false;
        }

        $resources = $this->_transformResults($query->endpoint(), $response->json['articles']);

        return new ResultSet($resources, count($resources));
    }
}

Create an endpoint (optional)

<?php
namespace App\Model\Endpoint;

use Muffin\Webservice\Model\Endpoint;

class ArticlesEndpoint extends Endpoint
{
}

Create a resource (optional)

<?php
namespace App\Model\Resource;

use Muffin\Webservice\Model\Resource;

class Article extends Resource
{
}

Use it

<?php
namespace App\Controller;

use Cake\Event\Event;
use Muffin\Webservice\Model\EndpointLocator;

class ArticlesController extends AppController
{
    // Either set the default model type to "Endpoint" or explicitly specify
    // model type in loadModel() call as shown below.
    protected $_modelType = 'Endpoint';

    public function index()
    {
        // This is required only if you haven't set `$_modelType` property to
        // "Endpoint" as shown above.
        $this->loadModel('Articles', 'Endpoint');

        $articles = $this->Articles->find();
    }
}

As base for a driver

You can also use this plugin as a base to a separate plugin or to manage custom webservice drivers connections.

Until official documentation is written, David Yell wrote a good post to get you started.

Implementations of webservices

As an ORM

The following plugins use the Webservice ORM to give you easy access to all kinds of webservices:

  • GitHub plugin - Provides access to the GitHub REST APIs.
  • NS plugin - Provides access to the NS (Nederlandse Spoorwegen) APIs.
  • Stagemarkt plugin - Provides access to the SBB Stagemarkt REST APIs.
  • Twitter plugin - Provides access to the Twitter REST and streaming APIs.

As a driver

The following plugins implement a Webservice driver with their own methods:

Patches & Features

  • Fork
  • Mod, fix
  • Test - this is important, so it's not unintentionally broken
  • Commit - do not mess with license, todo, version, etc. (if you do change any, bump them into commits of their own that I can ignore when I pull)
  • Pull request - bonus point for topic branches

To ensure your PRs are considered for upstream, you MUST follow the CakePHP coding standards.
