Intro:Recently team i'm currently working in received a task to make a proxy script that supports GET, POST, PUT, DELETE HTTP methods. All scripts we've found in network aren't supporting PUT and DELETE methods.
IMPORTANT this script has no fully-featured demo, sample etc. If you are don't know PHP please read PHP manuals before.
- Proxy should be as simple as possible.
- Proxy should proxy one domain.
Steps of development:First of all i remember my experience with Snoopy PHP library. It has really good functionality, but old code and code-style, and as we're have agile project with PHPUnderControl that checks it, we've decided that rewriting Snoopy library will consume a lot of time. Anyway i've rewritten it :) and soon it will be available.
Our project based on CodeIgniter has no such things also, but i remembered i saw REST service in Zend Framework and research/work begins.
First of all we don't want to use all of Zend Framework and i stripped out only classes we need:
Second step was writing a proxy script. You need have php-cURL installed to use this script from scratch. All you need to run it in example mode: download from it's GIT repository
if you are have what to proxy through this script please change $proxyingUrl variable. To enter in debug mode that shows headers, server variables, etc. you need to change $debug variable.
Third thing: to demonstrate feature is working i write script client.php to check all things are working nice. Also this script shows how to implement a page that will call proxy script. To use it you need to change $uri variable to point script to server.php script.
As i don't want to write fully-featured page with all HTTP methods as selector i've just commented out methods you are need to call to get responce.
