MessageBird's REST API for PHP
This repository contains the open source PHP client for MessageBird's REST API. Documentation can be found at: https://developers.messagebird.com/
- Sign up for a free MessageBird account
- Create a new access_key in the developers sections
- MessageBird API client for PHP requires PHP >= 5.4.
- Download composer
composer require messagebird/php-rest-api.
When you do not use Composer. You can git checkout or download this repository and include the MessageBird API client manually.
We have put some self-explanatory examples in the examples directory, but here is a quick breakdown on how it works. First, you need to set up a MessageBird\Client. Be sure to replace YOUR_ACCESS_KEY with something real.
require 'autoload.php'; $MessageBird = new \MessageBird\Client('YOUR_ACCESS_KEY');
That's easy enough. Now we can query the server for information. Lets use getting your balance overview as an example:
// Get your balance $Balance = $MessageBird->balance->read();
Conversations Whatsapp Sandbox
To use the whatsapp sandbox you need to add
\MessageBird\Client::ENABLE_CONVERSATIONSAPI_WHATSAPP_SANDBOX to the list of features you want enabled. Don't forget to replace
YOUR_ACCESS_KEY with your actual access key.
$messageBird = new \MessageBird\Client('YOUR_ACCESS_KEY', null, [\MessageBird\Client::ENABLE_CONVERSATIONSAPI_WHATSAPP_SANDBOX]);
If you use a custom
HttpClient you will have to manually direct Conversation API request to the WhatsApp sandbox endpoint.
