JReviews Filter for Listings and Reviews Read-Only REST API

Building and Consuming a Read-Only REST API

The code below makes use of JReviews filter hooks to create a simple read-only API for listings and reviews. To get started, read the developers hooks documentation.

Once you have the code in place in overrides, to test the API, add the format=json parameter to any listings or reviews page. For example:

Listings endpoint

https://domain.com/most-recent?format=json

Reviews endpoint

https://domain.com/latest-user-reviews?format=json
<?php
defined('MVC_FRAMEWORK') or die;

use Clickfwd\Hook\Filter;
