Repository files navigation API client class for PHP

This library allows you to issue calls to the public API from PHP.

Quick start

Install the library using composer.

composer require aftermarketpl/api

Create the API client object, providing your API key. Click here to obtain your API key.

$client = new Aftermarketpl\Api\Client(array(
    "key" => "... your public key ...",
    "secret" => "... your secret key ...",

Call an API function and obtain a result. Click here to see the list of API functions.

try {
    $result = $client->send("/domain/check", array(
        "names" => array("", ""),
catch(Aftermarketpl\Api\Exception\Exception $exception) {

Use Guzzle-style asynchronous call:

$promise = $client->sendAsync("/domain/check", array(
    "names" => array("", ""),
    function($result) {
    function($exception) {


You can install the API library in two ways.

  1. The easiest way is to use composer:
composer require aftermarketpl/api
  1. If you are not using composer, you can install the library manually. In order to do that, download and unpack the files (only the lib directory is necessary), and include the library's autoloader in your PHP files:
require "... path to the lib folder.../autoload.php";

In the latter case, you don't need the Guzzle library if you don't plan on using asynchronous requests

  • the library will switch to plain CURL in that case.

API keys

To connect to the API, you need an API key. Click here to obtain your API key.

You can have more than one API key. Each API key has a set of operations which can be performed using that key. You can also limit the key usage to a specific set of IP addresses.

After creating an API key, you can modify its permissions, revoke or disable it on the website.


Creating the class

To create a new client class, use:

$client = new Aftermarketpl\Api\Client($options);

The $options variable is an array, which can contain the following values:

  • key - The public key used to connect to the API.
  • secret - The secret key used to connect to the API.
  • debug - If set to true, the CURL calls to the API will be performed with the CURL_VERBOSE flag, allowing you to debug connection errors.
  • url - Alternative URL to use when connecting to the API. You don't normally need to use this option.

The parameters key and secret are necessary for making calls to the API. However, you do not need to specify them at class creation time - see the section Modifying the class below.

Making API calls

$result = $client->send($command, $parameters);

The function send() is used to send an API command to the server. You need to specify two parameters:

  • $command - The name of the command, for example "/domain/check". Click here to see the list of API functions.
  • $parameters - Array containing the command parameters. The actual contents depend on the command. Can be omitted of the command does not take any parameters.

The return value is the data structure returned by the API command. Its contents also depend on the actual command used - see the API reference for details on what is being returned by each command.

Asynchronous calls

$promise = $client->sendAsync($command, $parameters);
$promise->then(function($response) { ... }, function($exception) { ... });
$response = $promise->wait();

The function sendAsync() uses the Guzzle library to send an API call asynchronously. The input parameters are the same as with the send() function, but the returned value is a promise which resolves to the data structure returned from the API command.

Refer to Guzzle documentation for information on how to use promises with asynchronous calls.


If something goes wrong, a subclass of Aftermarketpl\Api\Exception\Exception is thrown. This class extends the standard Exception class with the method getResponse(), which returns the contents of the response received from the server. This value is, of course, only valid when the actual call to the server has been made; if the error occurred before that, the value is null.

Modifying the class

You can modify the created client class in runtime, using the following functions:

$client->setAuth($key, $secret);`
