My App Only communicates via Rest Services, incoming and outgoing.
I need an ORM that can give me relationship capabilities between objects (Models/Entities), without the DB layer.
Eloquent Models are nice but are heavy and bound to DB methods.
I've already looked at Doctrine for Laravel, but it too is based on DB.
Laravel Resources are nice for outgoing (building responses) but they also don't work here.
I want to accept incoming Jason, map to Entities/Models (without DB overhead), pass those objects to the View, establish relationships for them etc. For outgoing, I want to be able to do the inverse.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
