Using cURL to return API XML response

Recommended Posts

Forgive me if this is simple. My research has brought me to a halt at the moment. I am trying to use cURL to get the response of an API in XML.

 


 

By default it returns in JSON. Which I know, I should just use the JSON response but, there is a reason I need it in XML as it will seamlessly integrate into my current code until I can rewrite it for JSON. 

 

This is the documentation for the API. Under the API Reference tab is states I just need to change the request header to application/cap+xml. But I am not getting anything back. Just a blank white page. 

 


 

Here is my current code I am using to call the API but I get no response or anything. What am I missing?


<?php
    
         $headers[] = 'Connection: Keep-Alive';
         $headers[] = 'Content-Type: application/cap+xml;charset=utf-8';
         $headers[] = 'Accept: application/cap+xml';
    
         $userAgent = 'php';
    
         $url = 'https://api.weather.gov/alerts/active/region/land';
     
         $cURL = curl_init();
    
         curl_setopt($cURL, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
         curl_setopt($cURL, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers);
         curl_setopt($cURL, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, $userAgent);
         curl_setopt($cURL, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
         curl_setopt($cURL, CURLOPT_HTTPGET, true);
         
         $result = curl_exec($cURL);
         
         curl_close($cURL);
    
    ?>

Manual shows nothing about the missing echo statement which is what it was.  

 

Also the data I was trying to get a response wasn't available in cap+xml only in atom+xml and JSON. 

 

So I will be re-writing the scripts to use JSON which is better now that JSON is available now.

Then you truly cannot read.
