PSX Framework


PSX is a framework written in PHP to create RESTful APIs. It helps you building clean URLs serving web standard formats like JSON, XML, Atom and RSS. At the core PSX is build of three parts. A handler system (similar to repositories in doctrine) which abstracts away the actual SQL queries from the domain logic. An routing system which executes the fitting controller method depending on the location of the controller and the annotation of the method. And an flexible data system to convert data records from the database into different formats like JSON, XML, Atom and RSS. PSX uses a lightweight DI container to handle dependencies (but is also compatible with the symfony DI container). The controller can return request or response filter which can react or modify the HTTP request or response. PSX offers some basic request filter to handle i.e. Basic or Oauth authentication. In addition PSX offers some cool components to use and implement OAuth, OpenID, Opengraph, Opensocial, Opensearch, PubSubHubbub, WebFinger, Atom, and RSS. For more examples and informations please see the documentation section. To get an first idea how PSX works here a short introduction video.
