Braintree PHP Example

Build Status

An example Braintree integration for PHP.

Setup Instructions

  1. Install composer within the example directory. You can find instructions on how to install composer on composer's site.

  2. Run composer:

    php composer.phar install

    Or if you installed composer globally:

    composer install
  3. Copy the contents of example.env into a new file named .env and fill in your Braintree API credentials. Credentials can be found by navigating to Account > My User > View Authorizations in the Braintree Control Panel. Full instructions can be found on our support site.

  4. Start the internal PHP server on port 3000:

    php -S localhost:3000 -t public_html

Deploying to Heroku

You can deploy this app directly to Heroku to see the app live. Skip the setup instructions above and click the button below. This will walk you through getting this app up and running on Heroku in minutes.


Running Tests

All tests are integration tests. Integration tests make API calls to Braintree and require that you set up your Braintree credentials. You can run this project's integration tests by adding your sandbox API credentials to .env and running ./vendor/bin/phpunit --testsuite integration on the command line.

Testing Transactions

Sandbox transactions must be made with sample credit card numbers, and the response of a Braintree\Transaction::sale() call is dependent on the amount of the transaction.

Pro Tips

  • Run php -S -t public_html when launching the internal PHP server to listen on all interfaces on port 3000.
