An Example API using FRAPI
FRAPI is an open source, lightweight framework for building REST-like APIs in PHP. It is actively developed, battle-hardened (aka tested in the real world), and has a strong development community, so it is a logical choice for anyone looking to make a production API.
Unfortunately, the default directory structure that FRAPI comes bundled with has a deep nesting and does not lend itself to being used as a standalone git submodule. The default structure essentially encourages the developer to build their application directly on top of the FRAPI source files, so upgrading FRAPI to a later version can be a bit difficult and often requires manual intervention.
This example frapi application aims to accomplish two goals
- Allow the use of frapi as a git submodule so that it can be upgraded to the latest version without interfering with your custom API code.
- Demonstrate how a common API can be built using FRAPI.
