Features

  • Light and fast thanks to lazy loading of API classes
  • Extensively tested and documented

Requirements

Quick install

Via Composer.

This command will get you up and running quickly with a Guzzle HTTP client.

composer require knplabs/github-api:^3.0 guzzlehttp/guzzle:^7.0.1 http-interop/http-factory-guzzle:^1.0

Advanced install

We are decoupled from any HTTP messaging client with help by HTTPlug.

Using a different http client

composer require knplabs/github-api:^3.0 symfony/http-client nyholm/psr7

To set up the Github client with this HTTP client

use Github\Client;
use Symfony\Component\HttpClient\HttplugClient;

$client = Client::createWithHttpClient(new HttplugClient());

Read more about [using different clients in our docs](doc/customize.md).

Framework integrations

Laravel

To integrate this library in laravel Graham Campbell created graham-campbell/github. See the installation instructions to get started in laravel.

Basic usage of php-github-api client

<?php

// This file is generated by Composer
require_once __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';

$client = new \Github\Client();
$repositories = $client->api('user')->repositories('ornicar');

From $client object, you have access to all available GitHub api endpoints.

Cache usage

This example uses the PSR6 cache pool redis-adapter. See http://www.php-cache.com/ for alternatives.

<?php

// This file is generated by Composer
require_once __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';

use Cache\Adapter\Redis\RedisCachePool;

$client = new \Redis();
$client->connect('127.0.0.1', 6379);
// Create a PSR6 cache pool
$pool = new RedisCachePool($client);

$client = new \Github\Client();
$client->addCache($pool);

// Do some request

// Stop using cache
$client->removeCache();

Using cache, the client will get cached responses if resources haven't changed since last time, without reaching the X-Rate-Limit imposed by github.
