See all GitHub API routes: http://develop.github.com/

Customize phpGitHubApi

The library is highly configurable and extensible thanks to dependency injection.

Configure the request

Wanna change, let's say, the request User Agent?

$github->getRequest()->setOption('user_agent', 'My new User Agent');

See all request available options in request/phpGitHubApiRequest.php

Inject a new request instance

If you want to use your own request implementation, inject it to the GitHubApi:

// create a custom request
class myGitHubRequest extends phpGitHubApiRequest
{
  // override things
}

// inject your request instance to the API.
$github->setRequest(new myGitHubRequest());

Your request implementation must extend phpGitHubApiRequest.

Inject a new API part instance

If you want to use your own implementation of an API, inject it to the GitHubApi. For example, to replace the user API:

// create a custom User API
class myGitHubApiUser extends phpGitHubApiUser
{
  // override things
}

$github->setApi('user', new myGitHubApiUser());
