Social Network API update

Last time I updated you guys on this, I only had a list of ideas and how it would initially pan out. I have now started the project and published the repo onto GitHub (which can be found here).

If you would like to contribute then I would wholeheartedly appreciate any contributions. Pull requests or feedback on the project are more than welcome. I must warn you guys that it has literally just started. So far I have implemented Dingo and JWT tokens as part of the API.

You can also find my todo list publicly available through Trello. You can see what I would like to be done, what needs testing and what has been completed.

I’m pretty excited about this project and I’m really keeping my fingers crossed that we can create something truly amazing. Especially with such an amazing Laravel/PHP community.


This Blogpost was supposed to be out a while ago, and I have made a lot of progress on this project. I found a great starting project which has Dingo API, JWT tokens and CORS all setup out of the box with Lumen. This project can be found here. I now have JWT setup with user registration/login.

I also have status updates and friend request approval/ignore. There is still a lot to do and so much I need to figure out on this API, but if you would like to contribute, then please feel free to take a look and fork the project here.
