EasyBitcoin-PHP

A simple class for making calls to Bitcoin's API using PHP.

Getting Started

  1. Include easybitcoin.php into your PHP script:

    require_once('easybitcoin.php');
  2. Initialize Bitcoin connection/object:

    $bitcoin = new Bitcoin('username','password');

    Optionally, you can specify a host, port. Default is HTTP on localhost port 8332.

    $bitcoin = new Bitcoin('username','password','localhost','8332');

    If you wish to make an SSL connection you can set an optional CA certificate or leave blank

    $bitcoin->setSSL('/full/path/to/mycertificate.cert');
  3. Make calls to bitcoind as methods for your object. Examples:

    $bitcoin->getinfo();
    
    $bitcoin->getrawtransaction('0e3e2357e806b6cdb1f70b54c3a3a17b6714ee1f0e68bebb44a74b1efd512098',1);
    
    $bitcoin->getblock('000000000019d6689c085ae165831e934ff763ae46a2a6c172b3f1b60a8ce26f');

Additional Info

  • When a call fails for any reason, it will return false and put the error message in $bitcoin->error

  • The HTTP status code can be found in $bitcoin->status and will either be a valid HTTP status code or will be 0 if cURL was unable to connect.

  • The full response (not usually needed) is stored in $bitcoin->response while the raw JSON is stored in $bitcoin->raw_response
