Aug 7, 2012 Extending the Magento REST API (part 1)

 

Back in the Spring of 2012, Magento released their REST api as part of Magento CE 1.7 and Magento Enterprise 1.12.

The REST api allows you as a developer to expose various data entities suh as customer, catalog and order information to third party applications. A good example of this would be Facebook apps.

While starting to work on my Magento and Pimcore integration I needed to be able to pull catalog information from Magento to populate data objects which will be used to display product information directly within Pimcore so the REST api seems like the obvious way to get this information into Pimcore.

However I soon found that I needed extra information that the standard REST api doesn't provide so went about extending the api so I can add my own methods.

Over the next few articles I'll be detailing how I have achieved this and hope this will be prove useful to others.

Does anyone in the Leeds (UK) area fancy getting certified as a Magento certified Developer?  

I am planning on setting up a study group using the newly released Magentro Study Group moderator's kit http://www.magentocommerce.com/certification/moderators-kit.
