1. Fabrik 3.8.1 has been released. It is mostly bug fixes and feature enhancements, but does include two new plugins (push notifications, and the sequence element). As usual we strongly recommend testing the new release on a sandbox if your application is mission critical, and always do an Akeeba backup before updating.

REST form plugin

May 27, 2013
REST form plugin
  • The REST plugin will submit your form's data to a REST endpoint URL. Rest endpoint URL's are provided by third party sites via their API's to enable you to interact with their service. In the case of this plug-in we would be adding records into the 3rd party's site, the records would consist of data found in the Fabrik form being submitted.

    The plug-in will send a CURL request to the end point url, the accompanying data is sent as XML.
