I’ve searched the forums, Google, etc. and I’m putting something together with the Envato API but the documentation quite frankly sucks.

What I’m trying to do is put mimic the author statement like so:

22 May 10 sale $ 0.00 sold Your Item Here for 1.00 w/ rate of 00.0%

Here’s what I have so far:

 <?php // List Recent Sales
            $count = 1;
            $salesArray = $json_data['recent-sales'];
            foreach($salesArray as $value)
            {
                if($count <= 10)
                {
                    echo "<li class='line?><span class="sold">".$json_data['vitals']['username']." Sold ".$value['item']." at ".$value['rate']."%</span><span class="price">$".$value['amount']."</span>";
                    $count = $count + 1;
                }
                else
                {
                    break;
                }
            }
        ?>

but that just puts out:

Author Username Your Item Here at 0.00% $1.00

Can anyone tell me how to get the values from the API to achieve the values I’m looking for?

Nevermind, found it.

<?php $userName = 'yourusername';
$apiKey = 'yourapikey';   
$json_url = "http://marketplace.envato.com/api/edge/".$userName."/".$apiKey."/vitals+recent-sales.json";
$rawdata = file_get_contents($json_url);
$json_data = json_decode($json_contents, true); // We get the contents, if you have remote locations disabled in your php.ini, you can use curl or something else here to get the actual HTTP data
$data = json_decode($rawdata, true); // Sets $data variable as the decoded json file in array                                               

// Up to you (I'm assuming you know what to do with the array)
print_r($data); // This example just outputs the data, could be usefull for debugging

?>

Sounds interesting; let me know when you’re finished to test it :D

You might find this article useful – http://blog.themeforest.net/tutorials/display-anything-you-want-from-the-envato-api-using-php/

Just a note as you touched on in the code, using cURL is much, much faster than file_get_contents, albeit requires a few more lines of code. As always I suppose it just depends on what best suits your needs :)

Here’s a little teaser, crozer.

Thanks Drew, that article is what the first lines of code are from. I was just trying to put together something that would spit out all the values I was looking for and then I ran across this thread and simply switched out the code for the new values.
