RapidREST – Prototype your API in Sixty Seconds

Posted in Projects on October 12, 2014

I’ve been looking build simple test applications that implement API’s as a learning experience but dreaded the time commitment for designing databases and doing the actual programming for an application I’d abandon after three days. Architecting a clever, re-usable way to handle database access was my main problem so I started PHP Model Buddy. Months have gone by and my dwindling free time to experiment has left me with a half-finished database access framework.

I recently discovered two tools: RedBeanPHP and Slim Framework. Using the two I was able to develop a framework that allows developers to prototype API’s without actually having to prototype API’s.
