Webservice API

#1
Hi!

A couple of years ago i wrote a webservice using "SLIM"...worked pretty good. Very fast. But i had to do alot of coding.

So i am about to do a new webservice. And i love CodeIgniter. Have been using this framework for different projects (backend). So i though i would like to use CI to do a webservice.

So i found this:
https://github.com/chriskacerguis/codeig...restserver

And it looked great at first glance. But then is see it doesn´t support multiple resources in a URI.

For example:
A guy owns alot of cars. You want to see all the cars owned by this guy. The RESTful way would be a URI that looks like this:
GET users/12/cars (fetches userid=12 all cars)

I could solve this by:
GET users/12

And then with userdata also include all cars. But that´s "bloating"...if i only need user info...no cars should be included in the response.

however....codeigniter restserver seems to ONLY handle in this URI format:
Controller/Resource/Param/Format

In my opinion that is not really doing a very good RESTful job.

Are there any other CI based webserive frameworks?

I don't know another implementation. But before abandoning your initial test see what configuration could be done within config/routes.php for modeling your links. There are discussions on StackOverflow as I can see. It is a matter of minor additional configuration.

Yeah, i´m not really sure what to do here :-)

Read some "StackOverflow" posts but it seemed liked no solutions was found except "bloating". I could do that...but with a couple of thousands of API calls that will be costly.

I am thinking of going once again with SLIM framework for the API...but i will also develop a website that can talkt to the API and that will be CodeIgniter.
