What is PostalcodeBundle?

This bundle provides a wrapper for using https://api.postcode.nl inside Symfony2.

Installation

When using composer add the following to your composer.json

// composer.json
{
    //...

    "require": {
        //...
        "christianvermeulen/postalcode-bundle" : "dev-master"
    }

    //...
}

and run php composer.phar update christianvermeulen/postalcode-bundle.

Next add the following to your appkernel:

    // in AppKernel::registerBundles()
    $bundles = array(
        // Dependencies
        new ChristianVermeulen/PostalcodeBundle/ChristianVermeulenPostalcodeBundle();
    );

Configuration

Add the following to your app/config/config.yml

    christian_vermeulen_postalcode:
        key: [your_key]
        secret: [your_secret]

You can obtain these by registering your webshop at https://api.postcode.nl/.

Add routing if you want support for ajax requests: app/config/routing.yml

    christian_vermeulen_postalcode:
        resource: "@ChristianVermeulenPostalcodeBundle/Resources/config/routing.yml"
        prefix: /postal

Usage

Whenever you need to lookup an address you have 2 choices.

  • Through the service
  • Through a post request

Through the service

Inside any controller you can use the following code:

    // get the api service
    $api = $this->get('christianvermeulen_postalcode');

    // Look up the address for Dutch postcode 2012ES, housenumber 30,
    // with no housenumber addition.
    try
    {
        $address = $client->lookupAddress('2012ES', '30', '');
    }
    catch (PostcodeNl_Api_RestClient_AddressNotFoundException $e)
    {
        die('There is no address on this postcode/housenumber combination: '. $e);
    }
    catch (PostcodeNl_Api_RestClient_InputInvalidException $e)
    {
        die('We have input which can never return a valid address: '. $e);
    }
    catch (PostcodeNl_Api_RestClient_ClientException $e)
    {
        die('We have a problem setting up our client connection: '. $e);
    }
    catch (PostcodeNl_Api_RestClient_AuthenticationException $e)
    {
        die('The Postcode.nl API service does not know who we are: '. $e);
    }
    catch (PostcodeNl_Api_RestClient_ServiceException $e)
    {
        die('The Postcode.nl API service reported an error: '. $e);
    }

    // Print the address data ($address is an array)
    echo var_export($address, true);

Through post request

If you have included the routing of this bundle you can perform a post request to the route named christianvermeulen_postalcode_bundle. You need to pass the following parameters:

  • postalcode
  • number
  • addition

You will than get a JsonResponse with the correct details. A sample javascript in your form might be something like this:

    // Get the data to post through ajax
    var postalcode = $("#postalcode").val();
    var housenumber = $("#housenumber").val();
    var addition = $("#addition").val();

    // Perform ajax to get address
    $.ajax({
      url: "{{ path('christian_vermeulen_postalcode') }}",
      data: { postalcode: postalcode, number: housenumber, addition: addition },
      type: "post",
      dataType: "json"
    })

    // What should happen when we get the adress
    .done(function(response){
        // set the data in the fields
        $("#smaakwereld_sitebundle_addresstype_street").val(response.street);
        $("#smaakwereld_sitebundle_addresstype_city").val(response.city);
    })

    // What should happen if we fail?
    .fail(function(){
      console.log("We've encountered a problem!");
    });
