PHP Etherpad Lite Client

This PHP Etherpad Lite class allows you to easily interact with Etherpad Lite API with PHP.
Etherpad Lite is a collaborative editor provided by the Etherpad Foundation (

Basic Usage

You only need to include the 'etherpad-lite-client.php' file in your project. All other files in the project are for supporting the generation of the client.

include 'etherpad-lite-client.php';
$instance = new EtherpadLiteClient('EtherpadFTW', '');
$revisionCount = $instance->getRevisionsCount('testPad');
$revisionCount = $revisionCount->revisions;
echo "Pad has $revisionCount revisions";

Running The Tests

The full-stack tests can be run by running make test.

The test suite makes the following assumptions:

  • A copy of Etherpad is running at http://localhost:9001
  • The data in the running instance of Etherpad can be destroyed
  • The APIKey for the running instance is 'dcf118bfc58cc69cdf3ae870071f97149924f5f5a9a4a552fd2921b40830aaae'
  • PHPUnit has been installed with Composer (run make dev-deps)
