Yii2-xmlsoccer

Yii2 client for XMLSoccer API

Full API Documentation here: http://xmlsoccer.wikia.com/wiki/API_Documentation

Requirements:

PHP5 with CURL, SimpleXML extensions.

Installation

The preferred way to install this extension is through composer.

Either run

$ composer require --prefer-dist drsdre/yii2-xmlsoccer "*"

or add

"drsdre/yii2-xmlsoccer": "*" 

to the require section of your composer.json file.

Usage

You need to setup the client as application component:

'components' => [
    'xmlsoccerApi' => [
        'class' => '\drsdre\yii\xmlsoccer\Client',
        'apiKey' => 'xxx',
        'serviceUrl' => 'http://www.xmlsoccer.com/FootballData.asmx',
    ]
    ...
]

or define the client directly in the code:

$client = new \drsdre\yii\xmlsoccer\Client([
    'apiKey' => 'xxx',
    'serviceUrl' => 'http://www.xmlsoccer.com/FootballData.asmx',
]);

By default client url is setup to demo API (http://www.xmlsoccer.com/FootballData.asmx). For demo access use http://www.xmlsoccer.com/FootballDataDemo.asmx as url.

Configuration

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

'components' => [
    'xmlsoccerApi' => [
        'class' => '\drsdre\yii\xmlsoccer\Client',
        'apiKey' => 'xxx',
        'cache' => [
            'class' => '\yii\caching\FileCache'
        ],
    ]
    ...
]

To facilitate quicker processing of the data, a content hash can be generated by setting the parameter 'generate_hash' to true. The XML ouput 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 \drsdre\yii\xmlsoccer\Client([
    'apiKey' => 'xxx',
    'serviceUrl' => 'http://www.xmlsoccer.com/FootballData.asmx',
    'serviceIp' => '192.168.1.1',
]);

How to use API:

Go to Getting started and receive API key for access to XMLSoccer.com API.

Include the module, and call one of available methods.

Methods Available

Go to http://www.xmlsoccer.com/FootballData.asmx for more info about methods and parameters including online testing. See input data formats to find out how the input parameters need to be formatted.

Examples:

List players for team with id 49

try {
    $client = new \drsdre\yii\xmlsoccer\Client([
        'apiKey' => 'xxx',
    ]);
    $players = $client->getPlayersByTeam('49');
    echo "Players List:<br>";
    foreach($players as $key => $value) {
        echo "<b>".$value->Name."</b> ".$value->Position."<br>";
    }
}
catch(Exception $e) {
    echo "XMLSoccer Exception: ".$e->getMessage();
}

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

try {
    $client = new \drsdre\yii\xmlsoccer\Client([
        'apiKey' => 'xxx',
    ]);
    $client->setRequestIp("ip_for_request");
    $leagues = $client->getLeagueStandingsBySeason('3', '1516'));
    var_dump($leagues);
}
catch(Exception $e) {
    echo "XMLSoccer Exception: ".$e->getMessage();
}

If you have a trial/free demo feed, use it like this:

try{
    $client = new \drsdre\yii\xmlsoccer\Client([
        'apiKey' => 'xxx',
        'serviceUrl' => 'http://www.xmlsoccer.com/FootballDataDemo.asmx',
    ]);
    $fixtures = $client->getFixturesByDateIntervalAndLeague('2016-01-01 00:00', '2016-02-01 00:00', '3'));
    var_dump($fixtures);
}
catch(Exception $e){
    echo "XMLSoccer Exception: ".$e->getMessage();
}

That's all!
