A simple, free, open source PHP library for using RETS.
PHP + RETS = PHRETS
PHRETS provides PHP developers a way to integrate RETS functionality directly within new or existing code. A standard class of functions is made available to developers to connect and interact with a server much like they would with other APIs.
PHRETS handles the following aspects of RETS communication for you:
- Response parsing (for other non-XML responses such as HTTP multipart)
- XML Parsing
- Simple variables and arrays returned to the developer
- RETS communication (over HTTP)
- HTTP Header management
- Session/Cookie management
- Install using Composer. Add troydavisson/phrets to your
composer updateand you're set.
- Manual download. Grab the source code here (from GitHub).

Note: These examples may not work in all cases depending on the features supported (and correctly implemented) by the RETS server

- [Connect, download listing data in CSV format, disconnect](wiki/Connect, download listing data in CSV format, disconnect) - Requires 'Offset' support on the server
- [Connect, download listing data in CSV format, disconnect using auto-Offset feature](wiki/Connect, download listing data in CSV format, disconnect using auto-Offset feature) - Requires 'Offset' support on the server and PHRETS 1.0rc2 or greater
- [Create MySQL tables from RETS metadata](wiki/Create MySQL tables from RETS metadata) - Takes the RETS METADATA-TABLE definitions and makes the SQL to create the database table in MySQL
- [Create Batch List](wiki/Create Batch List) - Allows you to pass an array of values and returns a comma separated list of those values. Very helpful with PHRETS GetObject() requests.
