Replied to API Integration

well, I am trying to learn how to integrate API in Laravel. any way anybody can give me some sample API installation with Laravel (full tutorials) please let me inform.

Started a new conversation API Integration

I need to integrate the following API questing using Laravel. how can I do this

We would like you to make a connection to the mentioned API using below details and retrieve some data/information. Please see below process.
1. create a simple php class to communicate with the api with the following functions
1. get
1. table
2. page
2. search
1. table
2. query
3. update
1. id
2. table
3. data
2. Should be able to pass any tablename but will only be required to access product and taxrate (so table name is either “product” or “tax”)
3. Fetch a list of all products using the class
4. Convert the products into a paginated table using divs instead of <table> (use html, php and css)
I. Sort the products alphabetically
II. Max 20 products per page
III. Headings
a. ID
b. Name
c. Cost Price
d. Sale Price
IV. Will need to be paginated so can easily browse to e.g page 5
V. Find the product ID for ‘WrightWay Example’ using the table and display details on screen.
5. Change the product “WrightWay Example” to 'WrightWay'
You can use any method you see fit to achieve above.
We prefer to have a simple user interface for all functions above mentioned. As an example to retrieve all products you can use a button named “Get all products”.
See next page for API details….
API Access Details and relevant documentation:
Epos Key (Access key for calls into API ) : F50368501B084C26A480A7F728E4169E
Epos Secret (Password for calls into API ) : E72E8F14846445248890038867E3FB03
To access the API, simply pass an Authorization header with your request, containing Basic and your API access token.
Example Authorization header to be sent with your request:
Authorization: Basic API_ACCESS_TOKEN
You will also need to pass a Content-type header (e.g. application/json) to specify the response data type.
To obtain your API_ACCESS_TOKEN please concatenate your API Key, a colon character ":", and you API Secret in to single string (no spaces) and then Base64 encode it.
API_ACCESS_TOKEN = base64encode(Epos Key:Epos Secret)
GET HTTP://api.eposnowhq.com/api/V1/product/1

Content-type: application/json

Replied to What Are The Different Between Laravel Shedule And Queues?

@martinbean @nakov Ok, basically I have this question. consider I have some online reservation system. normally customers are visiting online and make a reservation and they confirm their reservation by logging to email and clicking confirmation link via the email. then the system should send an email to the administrator which including reservation customers data. (consider system should send an email to the admin after the email confirmation) then, can we use queues for this system? (for sending an email to admin after reservation)
