Arul Kumaran, CTO of Luracast will be sharing with us more on an open source solution, Restler. More about Restler
  • A RESTful API server framework written in PHP
  • Very light weight. You can write a server with just 3 php files
  • Simple to use. Create a PHP class, with some functions that you want to expose, add a javadoc style comment to map it to a url
  • Using a plugin architecture for supporting different formats like json, xml, yaml, amf, plist. You can add your own formats easily
  • Easy to protect an api, simply declare the function as protected, and add an authentication class
  • Using a plugin architecture for supporting different authentication schemes. You can add your own auth plugin
  • Free and open sourced!
