CodeIgniter-REST Client is a CodeIgniter library which makes it easy to do use REST services/API's such as Twitter, Facebook and Flickr, whether they are public or hidden behind HTTP Basic/Digest.
- PHP 5.1+
- CodeIgniter 2.0.0+
- CodeIgniter Curl library: http://getsparks.org/packages/curl/show
// Load the rest client spark $this->load->spark('restclient/2.1.0'); // Load the library $this->load->library('rest'); // Run some setup $this->rest->initialize(array('server' => 'http://twitter.com/')); // Pull in an array of tweets $tweets = $this->rest->get('statuses/user_timeline/'.$username.'.xml');
This is clearly a VERY simple example and more can much more can be done with it. Take a look at the code to see about things like api_key() and other post/put/delete methods.
