SoundCloud PHP API Wrapper

Introduction

A wrapper for the SoundCloud API written in PHP with support for authentication using OAuth 2.0.

The wrapper got a real overhaul with version 2.0. The current version was written with PEAR in mind and can easily by distributed as a PEAR package.

Requirements

  • PHP >= 5.3 (with cURL support)

Getting started

Check out the getting started wiki entry for further reference on how to get started. Also make sure to check out the demo application for some example code.

Examples

The wrapper includes convenient methods used to perform HTTP requests on behalf of the authenticated user. Below you'll find a few quick examples.

Ofcourse you need to handle the authentication first before being able to request and modify protect resources as demonstrated below. Therefor I refer to the demo application which got some example code on how to handle authentication.

GET

<?php
try {
    $response = json_decode($soundcloud->get('me'), true);
} catch (Services_Soundcloud_Invalid_Http_Response_Code_Exception $e) {
    exit($e->getMessage());
}

POST

<?php
$comment = <<<EOH
<comment>
    <body>Yeah!</body>
</comment>
EOH;

try {
    $response = json_decode(
        $soundcloud->post(
            'tracks/1/comments',
            $comment,
            array(CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER => array('Content-Type: application/xml'))
        ),
        true
    );
} catch (Services_Soundcloud_Invalid_Http_Response_Code_Exception $e) {
    exit($e->getMessage());
}

PUT

<?php
$track = <<<EOH
<track>
    <downloadable>true</downloadable>
</track>
EOH;

try {
    $response = json_decode(
        $soundcloud->put(
            'tracks/1',
            $track,
            array(CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER => array('Content-Type: application/xml'))
        ),
        true
    );
} catch (Services_Soundcloud_Invalid_Http_Response_Code_Exception $e) {
    exit($e->getMessage());
}

DELETE

<?php
try {
    $response = json_decode($soundcloud->delete('tracks/1'), true);
} catch (Services_Soundcloud_Invalid_Http_Response_Code_Exception $e) {
    exit($e->getMessage());
}

Upload track

<?php
$track = array(
    'track[title]' => 'My awesome track',
    'track[tags]' => 'dubstep rofl',
    'track[asset_data]' => '@/absolute/path/to/track.mp3'
);

try {
    $response = $soundcloud->post('tracks', $track);
} catch (Services_Soundcloud_Invalid_Http_Response_Code_Exception $e) {
    exit($e->getMessage());
}

Download track

<?php
try {
    $track = $soundcloud->download(1337);
} catch (Services_Soundcloud_Invalid_Http_Response_Code_Exception $e) {
    exit($e->getMessage());
}

// do something clever with $track. Save to file perhaps?

Update playlist

Many found it difficult to update a existing playlist. Therefor a custom method is available to simplify this matter.

<?php
$playlistId = 2000;
$trackIds = array(2001);
$optionalFields = array('title' => 'My awesome playlist');

try {
    $playlist = $soundcloud->updatePlaylist($playlistId, $trackIds, $optionalFields);
} catch (Services_Soundcloud_Invalid_Http_Response_Code_Exception $e) {
    exit($e->getMessage());
}
