FeedBlender

FeedBlender is a social network aggregator written in PHP.

Key features

  • Fetches content from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube public accounts
  • Organizes all different sources into a single and uniform structure
  • Caches all requests within a defined timespam

Usage:

<?php
require 'FeedBlender.php';
$feed_blender = new FeedBlender(
  array(
    'facebook'=>array(
      'client_id'=>'FACEBOOK_CLIENT_ID',
      'app_secret'=>'FACEBOOK_APP_SECRET',
      'users'=>array('mitmedialab')
    ),
    'instagram'=>array(
      'users'=>array('unsplash','iss')
    ),
    'twitter'=>array(
      'client_id'=>'TWITTER_CLIENT_ID',
      'app_secret'=>'TWITTER_APP_SECRET',
      'users'=>array('nasa')
    ),
    'youtube'=>array(
      'app_secret'=>'YOUTUBE_APP_SECRET',
      'users'=>array('TEDEducation','Computerphile')
    )
  )
);
$response_json = $feed_blender->getFeed(30);
//Optional sorting parameter:
//$response_json = $feed_blender->getFeed(10, 'interlaced');
?>

Should produce something like this:
