how to call curl with get, post, put, delete in php

In this post we will show you how to call curl with get, post, put, delete, hear for how to call curl with get, post, put, delete we will give you demo and example for implement.

Hear we will show you how to call curl with get, post, put, delete. wh have create one function it will call all 4 cutl methods (DELETE, GET, POST, PUT) in a RESTful API.

we have develop a cross-method solution to allow users to test REST API requesting directly from the documentation and get 3 parts of the API response :

HTTP Status Code, Header, Body

through 4 different methods :
DELETE, GET, POST, PUT

Also we wanted to be able to set what content type I wanted to get (JSON, XML, etc).

code for call curl with get, post, put, delete

function CallAPI($api_method, $api_url, $data) {
    
    $curl = curl_init($url);
    curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
	// if api with HTTPS
	curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);

    switch ($api_method) 
	{
        case "GET":
            curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, json_encode($data));
            curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, "GET");
            break;
        case "POST":
            curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, json_encode($data));
            curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, "POST");
            break;
        case "PUT":
            curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, json_encode($data));
            curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, "PUT");
            break;
        case "DELETE":
            curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, "DELETE"); 
            curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, json_encode($data));
            break;
    }
    $curl_response = curl_exec($curl);
    $data = json_decode($curl_response);

    /* 
	* Check for 404 (file not found). 
	*/
    $httpCode = curl_getinfo($curl, CURLINFO_HTTP_CODE);
    // Check the HTTP Status code
    switch ($httpCode) {
        case 200:
            $api_error_status = "200: Success";
            return ($data);
            break;
        case 404:
            $api_error_status = "404: API Not found";
            break;
        case 500:
            $api_error_status = "500: servers replied with an error.";
            break;
        case 502:
            $api_error_status = "502: servers may be down or being upgraded. Hopefully they'll be OK soon!";
            break;
        case 503:
            $api_error_status = "503: service unavailable. Hopefully they'll be OK soon!";
            break;
        default:
            $api_error_status = "Undocumented error: " . $httpCode . " : " . curl_error($curl);
            break;
    }
    curl_close($curl);
    echo $api_error_status;
    die;
}

// CALL Get Method
$api_data = array('id'=>$_GET['eid']);
$api_url = "www.onlinecode.org/GetCategoryById";
$result = CallAPI('GET', $api_url, $api_data);

// CALL Post Method

$api_data = array('id'=>$_REQUEST['somedata'],m'title'=>$_REQUEST['somedata'],'description'=>$_REQUEST['somedata']);
$result = CallAPI('POST', $api_url, $api_data);

// CALL Delete Method
$api_url = "www.onlinecode.org/DeleteCategory";
$api_data = array('id'=>$_GET['did']);
$result = CallAPI('DELETE', $api_url, $api_data);
