Wildcard - PHP based image placeholder service.

Posted: 27 July, 2020

Having spent the majority of my work hours coding in PHP, via the context of Wordpress, I really wanted to get outside of that realm and build some stuff from scratch.

Wildcard is a simple image placeholder service that provides random images of various creatures. You can get images of cats, dogs, birds, bugs, tigers, lions, fish, and even the occasional potato 🤫.

To build the api, I used vanilla php, phrouter, and intervention.

The images are provided via Unsplash, and various sizes are served on the fly.
