Pinterest Bot for PHP
A PHP library to help you work with your Pinterest account without API credentials.
The Pinterest API is painful: receiving an access token involves registering a developer account, registering an application, then waiting for confirmation. Not to mention, the public API itself is poorly implemented and has a limited set of features.
This library offers the full functionality available on Pinterest's website, with no need to register an application to receive an access token. All that's needed is your account login information (but even this is not required if you don't plan on creating pins, writing comments or sending messages)!
- Quick Start
- Interests and topics
- Error handling
- Use proxy
- Custom request settings
Library requires CURL extension and PHP 7.0 or above.
composer require seregazhuk/pinterest-bot
// You may need to amend this path to locate Composer's autoloader require('vendor/autoload.php'); use seregazhuk\PinterestBot\Factories\PinterestBot; $bot = PinterestBot::create(); // Login $bot->auth->login('mypinterestlogin', 'mypinterestpassword'); // Get lists of your boards $boards = $bot->boards->forUser('yourUserName'); // Create a pin $bot->pins->create('http://exmaple.com/image.jpg', $boards['id'], 'Pin description');
Note: Some methods (e.g. get user followers/following, pins likes/dislikes, search and other feed queries) use Pinterest navigation through results (with bookmarks). This means that for every batch of results, a call is made to Pinterest and a Pagination object with Pinterest API results is returned.
To avoid being banned by Pinterest, do not aggressively pin or write comments (e.g. creating hundreds of pins in a single minute).
Do this by inserting timeouts (
$bot->wait($seconds)) with calls.
These articles provide examples of common tasks that can be performed with the bot:
- Automate pinning (source code)
- Multiple Accounts and Proxy (source code)
- Comments, Likes And Repins (source code)
- Followers (source code)
- Parsing Pins (source code)
