Description

A resource wrapper to encapsulate paginated resource into REST-like API.

It is designed to provide paging data along with a resource collection.

It is mostly supposed to be used with JMSSerializerBundle but there are no dependencies against it and it should work with/without any other Serializer component.

This library is mostly a draft but has been heavily tested and it should be production ready in most case.

Installation

Using Composer, just require the borisguery/paginated-resource package:

{
  "require": {
    "borisguery/paginated-resource": "dev-master"
  }
}

If you wish to use this library with Pagerfanta or Doctrine 2 ArrayCollection, install the according dependencies:

{
  "require": {
    "pagerfanta/pagerfanta": "*",
    "doctrine/common": ">2.0",
  }
}

It may not be needed if you already use Doctrine2 ORM and/or any of the Pagerfanta Bundle.

Usage

Basic usage


namespace Acme;

use Bgy\PaginatedResource\Resource\ArrayResource;

class ArticlesController {

    public function getArticles()
    {
        $articles = array(
            array(
                'title' => 'Lorem ipsum',
                'body'  => 'Not worth reading',
            ),
            array(
                'title' => 'Dolor sid amet',
                'body'  => 'Awesome blog post',
            ),
        );

        $resource = new ArrayResource($articles, 'articles');

        echo json_encode(
            array(
                $key     => $resource->getData(),
                'paging' => $resource->getPaging(),
            )
        );
    }
}

The result will looks like:

{
    "articles": [
       {
           "title": "Lorem ipsum",
           "body" : "Not worth reading"
       },
       {
           "title": "Dolor sid amet",
           "body" : "Awesome blog post"
       }
    ],
    "paging": {
        "total_item_count":    2,
        "total_page_count":    1,
        "item_count_per_page": 2,
        "current_page":        1,
        "current_item_count":  2
    }
}

Obviously, this isn't really usefull since we have to know both the initial resource type and we need to serialize the data ourselve.

Thanks to the ResourceFactory you can dynamically create resource according to their initial type.

Using the ResourceFactory


namespace Acme;

use Bgy\PaginatedResource\ResourceFactory;

class ArticlesController {

    public function getArticles()
    {
        $articles = array(
            array(
                'title' => 'Lorem ipsum',
                'body'  => 'Not worth reading',
            ),
            array(
                'title' => 'Dolor sid amet',
                'body'  => 'Awesome blog post',
            ),
        );

        $resource = ResourceFactory::create($articles, 'articles');

        echo $this->dependencyInjectionContainer->get('serializer')
            ->serialize($resource, 'json');
    }
}

Will result the same as above.

Using ResourceFactory and JMSSerializerBundle

Taking the previous example, you may need to manually configure how the serialized result will look like. Let's try with the JMSSerializerBundle.

If we assume the 'serializer' service from the above example is an instance of JMS\SerializerBundle\Serializer\Serializer the result will looks like this:

{
    {
        "total_item_count":    2,
        "total_page_count":    1,
        "item_count_per_page": 2,
        "current_page":        1,
        "current_item_count":  2
    },
    "data_key": "articles",
    "articles": [
       {
           "title": "Lorem ipsum",
           "body" : "Not worth reading"
       },
       {
           "title": "Dolor sid amet",
           "body" : "Awesome blog post"
       }
    ],
    "paging": {
        "total_item_count":    2,
        "total_page_count":    1,
        "item_count_per_page": 2,
        "current_page":        1,
        "current_item_count":  2
    }
}

Not really sexy.

JMSSerializerBundle config to the rescue

In the contrib/ folder, you will find a basic configuration which will make the Serializer acts as we want to. In order to configure it you need to specify to the Serializer where are the associated configuration for the base class.

This may be found in contrib/jms-serializer/PaginatedResource/Resource/AbstractResource.yml

Just add:

      jms_serializer:
          metadata:
              directories:
                  BgyPaginatedResource:
                    namespace_prefix: 'Bgy\PaginatedResource\Resource'
                    path: "%kernel.root_dir%/../vendor/borisguery/paginated-resource/contrib/jms-serializer/Bgy/PaginatedResource/Resource"

To your config.yml.

This will results in:

{
    "articles": [
       {
           "title": "Lorem ipsum",
           "body" : "Not worth reading"
       },
       {
           "title": "Dolor sid amet",
           "body" : "Awesome blog post"
       }
    ],
    "paging": {
        "total_item_count":    2,
        "total_page_count":    1,
        "item_count_per_page": 2,
        "current_page":        1,
        "current_item_count":  2
    }
}

Custom Resources

Available Resources

There are currently 4 allowed Resources.

  • NullResource, usefull when your collection is empty and returns NULL
  • ArrayResource, which takes a native PHP array
  • ArrayCollectionResource, intended to work with Doctrine\Common\Collection\ArrayCollection
  • PagerfantaResource, works with the Pagerfanta paginator

Adding custom Resource

If you want to make it work with your own type, you can add Custom Resource, just implement the ResourceInterface.

It may be tricky to implement it yourself, and you likely want to extend the AbstractResource because the properties need to exist to make the serializer works correctly.

Take a look at the existing Resource to know what to do with it, it is really simple, I promise.

Run the test

First make sure you have installed all the dependencies, run:

$ composer install --dev

then, run the test from within the root directory:

$ phpunit
