Wolfram API with PHP
 
 

Has anyone here implemented Wolfram Alpha PHP binding?

I haven’t, though I was working at W|A when it was being designed.  There are actually a few APIs available.  It pretty much returns a structured version of the results on the site, which are often inconsistent even for similar queries.  I think it’s worthwhile to implement around those inconsistencies, but depending on your application you may not.

I downloaded the PHP code, and played around with the site itself, but that’s about as far as I got. I’ll see about working up something here in the near future, to see what I can see. smile

I am having some difficulty getting the PHP API to work at all for me. I found at least one error in the original example code already, and so was looking for someone who had a working version of the PHP binding I could look at to see where mine is messed up.

I’ll start testing the code later today, Carl, and see if, between the two of us, we can figure out how to get it to function. smile
