In this example, you will need the url of the site you're using and a public api key which can be generated by an admin of that site.

Basic example #1:


<?php

// --------------------
// Config
// --------------------
define('REC_API_URL', 'your site url'); // e.g. https://www.site.com/
define('REC_API_KEY', 'public api key');
define('REC_API_DEFAULT_LIMIT', 100); // default limit, feel free to change
define('REC_API_DEFAULT_FIELDS', '*'); // default to return all fields, set to blank for faster method but just returns basic fields

// --------------------
// Functions
// --------------------
/**
 * Helper to make simple API requests to REC
 * 
 * @param string $resourceName e.g. products or categories
 * @param int|null $id optional specific resource id e.g. the product id
 * @param array $options optional values to pass to the API
 * 
 * @return array
 * 
 * @throws Exception if API request failed
 */
function requestFromREC($resourceName, $id=null, $options=[])
{
    // build url params 
    $options = http_build_query(array_merge([
        'api_key' => REC_API_KEY,
        'limit' => REC_API_DEFAULT_LIMIT, 
        'fields' => REC_API_DEFAULT_FIELDS,
    ], $options));

    // make request
    $resource = $resourceName . (! is_null($id) ? '/' . $id : '');
    $response = @file_get_contents(REC_API_URL . 'api/v1/' . $resource . '.json?' . $options);
    if ($response === FALSE) {
      throw new Exception('Failed to reach API, please check your REC_API_URL & REC_API_KEY are set correctly');
    }

    // decode response
    return json_decode($response);
}

// --------------------
// Example uses
// --------------------

// list 100 products
$products = requestFromREC('products');
var_dump($products);

// or request details on just product id=32
$product = requestFromREC('products', 32);
var_dump($product);
