This library can be found on Packagist. The recommended way to install this is through composer.

Edit your composer.json and add:

And install dependencies:

  • PSR-0 compliant for easy interoperability
  • Fully extensible in every facet.
    • You can implement any service with any custom requirements by extending the protocol version's AbstractService implementation.
    • You can use any HTTP client you desire, just create a class utilizing it which implements OAuth\Common\Http\ClientInterface (two implementations are included)
    • You can use any storage mechanism for tokens. By default, session, in-memory and Redis.io (requires PHPRedis) storage mechanisms are included. Implement additional mechanisms by implementing OAuth\Common\Token\TokenStorageInterface.
