#Amazon ECS PHP Library Version 1.3 AmazonECS is a class which searches products and fetches information about it from the amazon product database.
See a working Search-Demo at: http://amazonecs.pixel-web.org
You can see the simple code of the demosite here: https://gist.github.com/4674423
This is realized by the Product Advertising API (former ECS) from Amazon WS Front. https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/advertising/api/detail/main.html
The AmazonECS class fetches product information via SOAP requests directly from the Amazon-Database.
It supports four basic operations: ItemSearch, ItemLookup, BrowseNodeLookup, SimilarityLookup
These operations could be expanded with extra prarmeters to specialize the query.
Requirement is the PHP extension SOAP.
##Basic Usage: The usage is quite simple. Just require the class, create a new object and it's ready to use. Nothing else to configure.
You just need to pass a category name when doing searches.
<?php require_once 'lib/AmazonECS.class.php'; $client = new AmazonECS('YOUR API KEY', 'YOUR SECRET KEY', 'DE', 'YOUR ASSOCIATE TAG'); $response = $client->category('Books')->search('PHP 5'); var_dump($response);
For some very simple examples go to the samples-folder and have a look at the sample files. These files contain all information you need for building queries successful.
