Yii2 client for Football API API

Full API Documentation here: http://football-api.com/documentation/

Requirements:

PHP5 with CURL. SimpleXML extensions only needed if XML is chosen as output.

Installation

The preferred way to install this extension is through composer.

Either run

composer require --prefer-dist drsdre/yii2-footballapi "*"

or add

"drsdre/yii2-footballapi": "*"

to the require section of your composer.json file.

Usage

You can either setup the client as an application component:

'components' => [
    'footballapiApi' => [
        'class' => '\FootballAPI\Client',
        'api_key' => 'xxx',
    ]
    ...
]

or use the client directly in your code:

$client = new \FootballAPI\Client([
    'api_key' => 'xxx',
]);

Configuration

The output format of the the API calls can be changed by adding a output type parameter:

'components' => [
    'footballApi' => [
        'class' => '\FootballAPI\Client',
        'api_key' => 'xxx',
        'output_type' => 'PHP',
    ]
    ...
]

Default value: JSON. Options include: XML, JSON, PHPARRAY, PHPOBJECT, LINE, CONSOLE, VAR.

Optionally a cache component can be added for example to keep the client returning data during a time-out:

'components' => [
    'footballApiCache' => [
        'class' => 'yii\caching\FileCache',
    ],
    'footballApi' => [
        'class' => '\FootballAPI\Client',
        'api_key' => 'xxx',
        'cache' => 'footballApiCache',
    ]
    ...
]

To facilitate a check to detect data changes, a content hash can be generated by setting the parameter 'generate_hash' to true (currently only supported in XML, PHPARRAY & PHPOBJECT output type). The output will then include two new attributes:

  • contentHash: MD5 hash
  • sourceURL: URL used to retrieve the data

If you need to have the API be executed via a specific network adapter it's possible the specify the outgoing IP:

$client = new \FootballAPI\Client([
    'api_key' => 'xxx',
    'service_ip' => '192.168.1.1',
]);

How to use API:

Go to Sign up for Free and retrieve the API key for access to the football-api.com API.

Methods Available

Go to http://football-api.com/documentation/ for more info about methods and parameters including online testing.

Examples:

List competitions

try {
    $client = new \FootballAPI\Client([
        'api_key' => 'xxx',
    ]);
    $competitions=json_decode($soccer->competitions());
    echo "Competitions List:<br>";
    foreach($competitions as $competition){
        echo "<b>".$competition->name."</b> ".$competition->region."<br>";
    }
}
catch(Exception $e) {
    echo "FootballAPI Exception: ".$e->getMessage();
}

If your server has multiple IP's available, you can set any IP for request:

try {
    $client = new \FootballAPI\Client([
        'api_key' => 'xxx',
    ]);
    $soccer->setRequestIp("ip_for_request");
    $result=json_decode($soccer->standings(["comp_id"=>1064]));
    var_dump($result);
}
catch(Exception $e) {
    echo "FootballAPI: ".$e->getMessage();
}

That's all!
