Hi all,

As you know, Google just released their social graph API
(http://code.google.com/apis/socialgraph/). I wrote a quick and dirty
client in PHP that cosumes the JSON and returns it in a data
structure. There's more work to be done, particularly in making the
fetch code work with either fopen or curl.

$sga = new SocialGraphApi(Array('edgesout'=>0,'edgesin'=>0,'followme'=>'1',
'sgn'=>0));

$mydata = $sga->get('http://redmonk.net');

echo "<pre>" . print_r($mydata,true) . "</pre>";

Find the code at:

http://diso.googlecode.com/svn/php/sgapi/

Steve, you are so da man!

re: curl vs. fopen: the following has worked well for me so far.
<http://labs.tekartist.org/parseme/svn/trunk/index.php>
lines 409 -> 438: if(function_exists('curl_init')) ...

I would have submitted a patch with a variant of the above, but
starting to *get the character*, you're probably way ahead of me in
your uncommitted checkout. ;)

Oh, quick question: has the group decided on php4 vs. php5, since
we're dealing with WP?

I've had to write a to_json function in the past, I could prob' crank
a from_json function if needed.

For what it's worth I just uploaded a Perl version of the API to CPAN.

It's almost exactly the same as the PHP one because, well, why not.

Pretty much PHP5, due to the use of tools like hKit and our need for
advanced XML processing. PHP5 isn't everywhere yet, but by the time we
get to a 1.0, hopefully it'll be available enough.

Is the JSON lib I've included 5-only?

I thought so for a second, but it was my bad. I looked up some php
docs refs and it look like it actually is backward compatible.

Can't wait for 2008-08-08... :p
