PHP library for the Google Contacts API (v3)

Installation & Dependencies

This package and its dependencies can be installed using composer.

Just add the package to your composer.json file as follows and run composer update.

  "require": {
       "rapidwebltd/php-google-contacts-v3-api": "1.*"


  1. Install required dependencies. See the 'Dependencies' section above.
  2. Copy or rename .config_blank.json to .config.json. Note the dot (.) at the beginning of the file name.
  3. Fill in the clientID, clientSecret and redirectUri in .config.json.
  • Note that redirectUri should be configure to point towards the redirect-handler.php file.
  • The clientID and clientSecret can be found in the Google Developers console at under 'APIs & auth' -> 'Credentials', after enabling the Contacts API.
  1. Go to authorise-application.php in a web browser. This should give you a URL to authorise your application for Google Contacts.
  2. Go to the authorisation URL provided by the previous step.
  3. Accept the permissions requested on the page displayed. You should then be redirected back to the redirect-handler.php file.
  4. The page generated by the redirect-handler.php file should then present you with a refresh token. Copy this into your .config.json.
  5. Setup is done!
