Attention PHP developers!
You can build powerful search applications in PHP using MarkLogic Server with an open source PHP API, called MLPHP. The API makes it easy for PHP developers to store documents, manage document metadata, and create sophisticated search queries on a web server running PHP 5.3 or later. It communicates with MarkLogic using the server’s REST API, available in MarkLogic 6 or later.
The PHP API is available for download at GitHub. See the INSTALL.txt file to get started and then check out the API Docs. After installing the PHP API, you can load documents into MarkLogic with just a couple lines of PHP code:
$document = new MLPHPDocument($client);
Searching is just as easy:
$search = new MLPHPSearch($client);
$results = $search->retrieve('cat');
MLPHP is a work-in-progress. If you have questions or want to provide some feedback, you can file issues at GitHub, or drop me a line directly at mike.wooldridge AT marklogic dot com.

(If you want to build applications in Java, MarkLogic also has a great Java API.)
