Installation

Prerequisites

  • PHP version 5.6 or higher

Install with Composer

Add php-http-client to your composer.json file. If you are not using Composer, you should be. It's an excellent way to manage dependencies in your PHP application.

{
  "require": {
    "sendgrid/php-http-client": "~3.9.6"
  }
}

Then at the top of your PHP script require the autoloader:

require __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';

Then from the command line:

composer install

Install without Composer

You should create directory lib in directory of your application and clone to lib repositories php-http-client and sendgrid-php:

$ cd /path/to/your/app
$ mkdir lib
$ cd lib
$ git clone https://github.com/sendgrid/php-http-client.git

In the next step you should create loader.php:

$ cd /path/to/your/app
$ touch loader.php

And add to loader.php code below:

<?php

require_once __DIR__ . '/lib/php-http-client/lib/Client.php';
require_once __DIR__ . '/lib/php-http-client/lib/Response.php';

After it you can use php-http-client library in your project:

<?php

include __DIR__ . '/loader.php';

$client = new SendGrid\Client();

Quick Start

Here is a quick example:

GET /your/api/{param}/call

// include __DIR__ . '/loader.php';
require 'vendor/autoload.php';
$apiKey = YOUR_SENDGRID_API_KEY;
$authHeaders = [
    'Authorization: Bearer ' . $apiKey
];
$client = new SendGrid\Client('https://api.sendgrid.com', $authHeaders);
$param = 'foo';
$response = $client->your()->api()->_($param)->call()->get();

var_dump(
    $response->statusCode(),
    $response->headers(),
    $response->body()
);

POST /your/api/{param}/call with headers, query parameters and a request body with versioning.

// include __DIR__ . '/loader.php';
require 'vendor/autoload.php';
$apiKey = YOUR_SENDGRID_API_KEY;
$authHeaders = [
    'Authorization: Bearer ' . $apiKey
];
$client = new SendGrid\Client('https://api.sendgrid.com', $authHeaders);
$queryParams = [
    'hello' => 0, 'world' => 1
];
$requestHeaders = [
    'X-Test' => 'test'
];
$data = [
    'some' => 1, 'awesome' => 2, 'data' => 3
];
$param = 'bar';
$response = $client->your()->api()->_($param)->call()->post($data, $queryParams, $requestHeaders);

var_dump(
    $response->statusCode(),
    $response->headers(),
    $response->body()
);
