Tonight I started working on the RESTful API for PancakeApp - an invoicing system built in CodeIgniter - when I remembered how many people have been asking for help using REST_Controller.
Most applications in CodeIgniter will have various types of pages. The public frontend, a backend admin panel, perhaps some sort of moderator or staff panel, etc. Logic for these types of pages is normally copied between all of their different Controllers which means, for example, if the way the admin area protection is handled is changed there will be lots of Controllers to change and test.
CodeIgniter is becoming well known for its power as a PHP based web application framework, but it’s not often that we see examples of it being used for anything else. Today we’ll learn how we can use CodeIgniter to create a RESTful API for your existing web applications, and demonstrate how to interact with your own API or other RESTful web-services, such as Facebook and Twitter.
