DTSocialMedia is a PHP class to get the user's timeline from various social media. Currently it support Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Youtube, Instagram, Flickr, and RSS Feed.
Our client asking for a mobile app which showing their timeline on various social media. So, instead of making the UI on each social media (which is tiring), we come up with showing a WebView instead. To do that, I will need to grab the timelines through PHP.
Update on new Twitter API
So the Twitter Rest API has changed. You will need to create an application http://dev.twitter.com in order to get the Consumer Key, Consumer Secret, Access Token, and Access Token secret. A sample script to access the users's timeline is provided
For Flickr, you will need to provide the user ID, which you can get it from here: http://idgettr.com/.
For Instagram, you will need to provide the user ID as well. You could get the user id from here: http://jelled.com/instagram/lookup-user-id. And don't forget to put the Access Token and Client ID on the class file.
<?php require "DTSocialMedia.php"; // create an object $social = new DTSocialMedia(); // get the timelines // the $social_name values are: // rss, facebook, twitter, pinterest, flickr, youtube, instagram print_r($social->get_data($social_name, $user_or_url)); ?>
