I'm looking for some help with writing a Joomla MVC which will consume a RESTful API.

The API returns data in JSON and XML.

The component should have two views (a frontend list with all objects - including a filter - and associated detail pages).

For example:

  • Object 1
    • Detail Page
  • Object 2
    • Detail Page
  • ..

I have already looked at the following examples:

  • You might like to show us some of your unsuccessful code, so that we can better understand where you are stuck. Offering complete tutorials or links to turorials is not the sort of thing that volunteers are meant to do here. – mickmackusa Jul 31 '18 at 13:30
  • You would need to create a set of models based on your API as opposed to database object (which is what Joomla's models are using). You can use BaseDatabaseModel as example. Replace DB-related code with your API code. – Sharky Aug 7 '18 at 6:08
