Laravel Giphy

LARAVEL GIPHY

Laravel Giphy is a Giphy API wrapper for Laravel (and Lumen but ssh, don't tell anyone), providing an easy to access Giphy facade.

Installation

To use this package without running in to trouble you will need PHP 5.5+ or HHVM 3.6+, and Composer.

  1. Get the latest version of Laravel Giphy, add the following line to your composer.json file

    "hiddeco/laravel-giphy": "0.1.*@alpha"

  2. Run composer update or composer install

  3. Register the Laravel Giphy service provider in config/app.php by adding 'HiddeCo\Giphy\GiphyServiceProvider to the providers key

  4. Add the Giphy facade to the aliases key: 'Giphy' => 'HiddeCo\Giphy\Facades\Giphy'

Configuration

The only configuration Laravel Giphy needs is a GIPHY_API_KEY in your .env file. A public beta key is available in the Giphy API Documentation.

Note: On Laravel it is also possible to configure Laravel Giphy by running php artisan config:publish and adding your apiKey to config/giphy.php.

Injecting Giphy

Injecting Giphy in to a controller could not have been any easier.

<?php

class GifController extends BaseController {

    public function __construct(HiddeCo\Giphy\Giphy $giphy)
    {

        $this->giphy = $giphy;

    }

    public function get($id)
    {
        try
        {

            return $this->giphy->gif()->random([ 'fmt' => 'html' ]);
        }
        catch (\Exception $e)
        {

            return $e->getMessage();
        }
    }
}
