I recently started playing around with the Lumen micro-framework. For those who don't know much about I would encourage you to check it out. It is by the developers of Laravel, another popular PHP framework. Lumen is mostly aimed towards micro-services such as a RESTful API. It makes it crazy simple to create powerful services out of the box. If you want to get started here is a list of resources I found helpful. For those who have used Laravel before then it shouldn't be that difficult to get started as it's very similar
- Nice introductory tutorial.
- Documentation (Obviously).
- Tutorial on building a simple REST API.
- Great article on interacting with the database and create models.
- Video started video.
I also created a simple application with CRUD capabilities if anyone is interested at the code.
