Twitter API V2 for PHP

PHP Badge Twitter Run Tests MIT Licensed last version Downloads twitter

Twitter API V2 is a PHP package which provides an easy and fast access to Twitter REST API for Version 2 endpoints.

Documentation

Installation

To begin, you'll need to add the component to your composer.json

composer require noweh/twitter-api-v2-php

After adding the component, update your packages using composer update or install them using composer install.

Github Actions

This repository uses Github Actions for each push/pull request, employing PHPStan/PHPUnit.

Consequently, with each valid push, a new Tweet is posted from the Twitter test account.

Usage

Active your developer account

Before anything else, you must follow this tutorial.

  • Request approval for a developer account;
  • Once your developer account is approved, you will need to create a Project;
  • Enable read/write access for your Twitter app;
  • Generate Consumer Keys and Authentication Tokens;
  • Retrieve your Keys and Tokens from the Twitter Developer portal.

Configuration setup

Expected settings are as follows:

use Noweh\TwitterApi\Client;

$settings['account_id']
$settings['access_token'],
$settings['access_token_secret'],
$settings['consumer_key'],
$settings['consumer_secret'],
$settings['bearer_token'],
$settings['free_mode'] = false; // Optional

$client = new Client($settings);

API Functionality

All API calls are triggered when the performRequest() method is invoked. Depending on the context, this method can either be empty or contain data that will be sent as PostData (refer to examples of each call below).

Include the HTTP headers provided by Twitter in the response

The performRequest() method accepts a second parameter, $withHeaders, which is a boolean value. Setting this parameter to true will include the headers information in the response.

Here are some examples of information included in headers:

  • x-rate-limit-limit: the rate limit ceiling for that given endpoint
  • x-rate-limit-remaining: the number of requests left for the 15-minute window
  • x-rate-limit-reset: the remaining window before the rate limit resets, in UTC epoch seconds

Example:

$response = $this->client->tweet()->create()
    ->performRequest([
        'text' => 'Test Tweet... '
    ],
    withHeaders: true)
;

$settings['free_mode'] = true;
$client = new Client($settings);
