PHP GitHub API
A simple Object Oriented wrapper for GitHub API, written with PHP.
- Light and fast thanks to lazy loading of API classes
- Extensively tested and documented
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
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).
Basic usage of
<?php // This file is generated by Composer require_once __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php'; $client = new \Github\Client(); $repositories = $client->api('user')->repositories('ornicar');
$client object, you have access to all available GitHub api endpoints.
<?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.
