Example for using API platform and interpreting its docs.jsonld

API platform also provides a complete auto-generated documentation about the api, its endpoints, the search parameters, in json or json+ld+hydra formats. Is there any way to make Refine auto guess the endpoints and table structures based on that documation of API platform?

---------------------- Hmm, I don't know enough to give you a confident answer yet. However, you can refer to the refine documentation for more information on how to work with different data providers and API structures: - Refine Documentation (https://refine.dev/docs) ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai Is there any example of a dataprovider, connecting to api platform using REST?

---------------------- I couldn't find a specific example of a data provider connecting to API Platform using REST in the provided extracts. However, you can create a custom data provider to connect to your API by following the instructions in the Create Data Provider From Scratch (https://refine.dev/docs/tutorial/understanding-dataprovider/create-dataprovider) section of the refine documentation. Here's a basic outline of creating a custom data provider using axios and query-string: 1. Install axios and query-string:
npm install axios@0.26
npm install query-string@7
npm install axios@0.26
npm install query-string@7
2. Create a data-provider.ts file:
import { DataProvider } from "@refinedev/core";
import { stringify } from "query-string";

export const dataProvider = (apiUrl: string): DataProvider => ({
// Methods
});
import { DataProvider } from "@refinedev/core";
import { stringify } from "query-string";

export const dataProvider = (apiUrl: string): DataProvider => ({
// Methods
});
You can then implement the necessary methods for your data provider based on your API's documentation and requirements. For more information on creating a custom data provider, refer to the refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/tutorial/understanding-dataprovider/create-dataprovider). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai API platform is a symfony/php based headless api system, which makes it possible to create complex REST and GraphQL providing APIs, and supporting all the current security and data standards at once.
