File: 

Proofread Bot provides a rest server that can return the report in several formats from json to xmlrpc. For a sample live client implementation take a look at the Wordpress plugin.

Here is a sample php, json implementation:

You will need this php snippet

<?php

 

include_once("DrupalREST_pbot.php");

 

 

$api = new DrupalREST_pbot('http://proofreadbot.com/server/', 'YOURUSERNAME', 'YOURPASS', TRUE);

$node = new stdClass();

$node->type = 'proofreading';

$node->language = "und";

 

//provide either a URL or a text to search

//$node->field_url[$node->language][0]["url"] = "http://proofreadbot.com";

$node->body[$node->language][0]["value"] = "Your five word long text.";

 

$api->login();

 

$result = $api->createNode(array('node' => $node));

 

print_r($result);

 

$result_body = json_decode($result->body);

if (isset($result->nid)) {

$node = $api->retrieveNode($result->nid);

print_r($node);

}

 

if (isset($result_body[0])) {

print_r($result_body[0]);

}

 

?>

You also need this DrupalREST.php file ( modified from its original version on github)

 

 
<?php

var $session;
var $endpoint;
var $debug;

//TODO: Check for trailing slash and fix if needed
$this->endpoint = $endpoint;
$this->debug = $debug;
}
 
function login()
{
$ch = curl_init($this->endpoint . 'user/login.json');
$post_data = array(
'username' => $this->username,
