I <3 APIs

So I’ve been building out some PHP API stuff. I’m using the Guzzle library for making RESTful web service calls to various API points. Pretty dang cool. This allows for authenticated and non-authenticated access to raw json. Paired with AJAX and D3.js I hope to create some interactive infographic and data visualization.

Here’s a page that pulls raw xml from the forest service about invasive species. This raw content could be wrapped in custom CSS or layout XHTML.
