This is a very simple PHP library for interacting with the v3 bit.ly api (supports OAuth endpoints). It should support all basic endpoints that are found/available via http://dev.bitly.com/api.html.
PHP, Curl, JSON
Simply download the bitly.php file and include it in your project directory
Make sure to include the file whenever you want to access the bitly api functionality... include_once('bitly.php');
Set up an associative array with the required parameters for the endpoint you want to access.
Make the bitly_get or bitly_post call, passing in the endpoint and the parameters as defined via the bit.ly API documentation ( http://dev.bitly.com/api.html ).
include_once('bitly.php'); $params = array(); $params['access_token'] = 'THE_TOKEN_SET_VIA_OAUTH'; $params['longUrl'] = 'http://knowabout.it'; $params['domain'] = 'j.mp'; $results = bitly_get('shorten', $params); var_dump($results);
$params = array(); $params['access_token'] = 'THE_TOKEN_SET_VIA_OAUTH'; $params['url'] = 'http://knowabout.it'; $results = bitly_get('link/lookup', $params); var_dump($results);
a slightly more complex example with complex params (simply pass a third param of true when dealing with complex params):
$params = array(); $params['access_token'] = 'THE_TOKEN_SET_VIA_OAUTH'; $params['hash'] = array('dYhyia','dYhyia','abc123'); $results = bitly_get('expand', $params, true); var_dump($results);
You can find more detailed examples in the test.php file within this repo.
============= SPECIAL NOTE:
To use the new OAuth endpoints, you must first obtain an access token for a user. You do this by passing the user off to bit.ly to approve your apps access to their account...and then you use the return code along with the bitly_oauth_access_token method to obtain the actual bitly access token:
- Present the user with a link as such:
- a code ($_REQUEST['code']) will be supplied as a param to the url Bit.ly redirects to. So you can then execute:
$results = bitly_oauth_access_token($_REQUEST['code'], 'THE_URL_YOU_WANT_BITLY_TO_REDIRECT_TO_WHEN_APP_IS_APPROVED_BY_USER', 'YOUR_BITLY_APP_CLIENT_ID', 'YOUR_BITLY_APP_CLIENT_SECRET');
- If everything goes correctly, you should now have a $results['access_token'] value that you can use with the oauth requests for that user.
