Since the version 1.0.0 milestone has been reached I would like to share a few upcoming plans for the SDK.
As previously announced the many GitHub repositories that make up the SDK have now been combined into a new single repository that can be found at ebay-sdk-php. As a result of this the existing repositories have been issued with an end of life notice for the 6th December 2015. After that date the repositories will no longer be supported. Until then they will continue to receive support for the following:-
The purpose of this post to provide some information regarding the future development of the eBay SDK for PHP. Specifically I would like to discuss some issues with the current development and my plans to solve them. I would also like to provide information about the version 1.0 release of the SDK.
I am pleased to announce a new tool for users of findItemsAdvanced in the eBay Finding API. Inspired by a post from the eBay developers forum, I decided to create Bobbie. Enter your App ID and request values and Bobbie will automatically build a URL that can be used in the browser or your projects.
Now that eBay no longer has an API test tool you may want to consider using Postman instead. For those of you who are new to Postman or the eBay API this guide will take you through the "Hello World" of the API which is to make a call to the GeteBayOfficialTime operation that is available via the Trading service.
I am pleased to announce that it is now possible to manually install the SDK. While I will always recommend that you use Composer in your projects, you now have the choice of installing via a Phar or Zip archive. Each file contains all the classes and dependencies you need to run the SDK and what's more you can download them directly from Github each time there is a new release. The Installation section of the User Guide contains more information on how to use these new methods.
To help keep you informed and up to date I have been working on few things that I can now announce.
