JSON API (jsonapi.org) package for Laravel applications.
Latest commit 93c102b Oct 13, 2018


Build Status


Add jsonapi.org compliant APIs to your Laravel 5 application. Based on the framework agnostic package neomerx/json-api.

What is JSON API?

From jsonapi.org

If you've ever argued with your team about the way your JSON responses should be formatted, JSON API is your anti-bikeshedding weapon.

By following shared conventions, you can increase productivity, take advantage of generalized tooling, and focus on what matters: your application. Clients built around JSON API are able to take advantage of its features around efficiently caching responses, sometimes eliminating network requests entirely.

For full information on the spec, plus examples, see http://jsonapi.org.


A demo application is available at here.
