SocialAdr API PHP SDK

Purpose

This document describes how to use the SocialAdr PHP SDK (Software Development Kit) as a starting point to develop SocialAdr applications in PHP.

Getting Started

You need to have already followed these steps from the SocialAdr API Documentation doc:

  1. Sign up for the Developer Program

  2. Create an App

  3. Get the Necessary IDs

Download SDK

Clone or download the SocialAdr PHP SDK Github repository to get started:

git clone https://github.com/socialadr/PHP-SDK.git

or

https://github.com/socialadr/PHP-SDK/archive/master.zip

Start Developing

Update Variables

Once you’ve downloaded the SDK, and extracted its contents somewhere within your application, you need to update a few variables inside various files:

SocialAdrAPI.php

This is the main API class file.

  • $redirectURI (line 8): the URL on your server that users are redirected to after authorizing your app
  • $scope (line 9): a space-separated string of app permissions, example: ‘basic url account’

authorized.php

The Authorized page for your app, as described here.

  • $clientID (line 12): the Client ID of your app
  • $clientSecret (line 13): the Client Secret Key for your app
  • $appId (line 14): your app’s unique ID

index.php

The page where you have the button/link for your users to grant your app access to their SocialAdr data.

  • $appId (line 9): your app’s unique ID

authorized.php

Some examples usages of the various API methods.

  • $clientID (line 13): the Client ID of your app
  • $clientSecret (line 14): the Client Secret Key for your app
  • $appId (line 15): your app’s unique ID
  • $accessToken (line 16): the Access Token for the current user, typically retrieved from your database

Basic SDK Setup

Now you’re ready to include the SDK into your project. Below is a basic example of including the SocialAdr SDK and instantiating the SocialAdr API class.

require_once("/path/to/SocialAdrAPI.php");
$SocialAdr = new SocialAdrAPI('YOUR_CLIENT_ID', 'YOUR_CLIENT_SECRET', 'YOUR_APP_ID');

Alternatively, you can specify your Client ID, App ID, and Client Secret as shown in the example below:

<?php
require_once("/path/to/SocialAdrAPI.php");
$SocialAdr = new SocialAdrAPI();
$SocialAdr->setAppId('YOUR APP ID');
$SocialAdr->setClientId('YOUR CLIENT ID');
$SocialAdr->setClientSecret('YOUR CLIENT SECRET');
?>

Authorize App Button or Link

In addition to the ability for users to grant your application access to their data through the SocialAdr App Store, you can create a button or link on your website to authorize your app. When clicked, users are temporarily taken to SocialAdr to authorize access, and are then sent back to your website. Here is an example of how to create an Authorization link using our PHP SDK.

<?php
require_once("/path/to/SocialAdrAPI.php");
$SocialAdr = new SocialAdrAPI('YOUR_CLIENT_ID', 'YOUR_CLIENT_SECRET', 'YOUR_APP_ID');
echo '<a href="' . $SocialAdr->getInstallURL() . '">Install</a>';
?>

Authorized Page

The Authorized page is a landing page that users are sent to after granting your app access to their SocialAdr data. This page is passed a query parameter with an Authorization Code from SocialAdr. For example:

http://www.yourapp.com/authorized?code={AUTHORIZATIONCODE}.

It needs to exchange this Authorization Code for an Access Token. Every API call you make (with the exception of authorization API calls) requires an Access Token.

You’ll want to store the Access Token in your applications database for making future API calls on behalf of the authorized user. Below is an example of exchanging the Authorization Code for an Access Token using the SDK.

<?php
require_once("/path/to/SocialAdrAPI.php");
$SocialAdr = new SocialAdrAPI('YOUR_CLIENT_ID', 'YOUR_CLIENT_SECRET', 'YOUR_APP_ID');
$SocialAdr->debug = false;
$result = $SocialAdr->handleAuth(); //Exchanges Auth Code for Access Token
if($result){
    if($result->error){
        //error handling
    }
    elseif($result->access_token){
        //save access token
        //save refresh token $result->refresh_token as well, you will need it later.
    }
}
?>

Refreshing Access Tokens

Access tokens expire after a set period of time. When you receive an Access Token, you should also be given a Refresh Token. You will want to save both. The Refresh Token is used to get a new Access Token when it has expired.

<?php
require_once("/path/to/SocialAdrAPI.php");
$SocialAdr = new SocialAdrAPI('YOUR_CLIENT_ID', 'YOUR_CLIENT_SECRET', 'YOUR_APP_ID');
$result = $SocialAdr->refresh($refresh_token);
if($result){
    if($result->error){
        //error handling
    }
    elseif($result->access_token){
        //save access token
        //save refresh token $result->refresh_token as well, you will need it later.
    }
}
?>

Start making API Calls

Once you have stored the Access Token, you are ready to make your first API call. In the example below, we are using our Access Token to make the urlValidate() API call. The complete list of API methods is available here.

<?php
require_once("/path/to/SocialAdrAPI.php");
$SocialAdr = new SocialAdrAPI('YOUR_APP_ID', 'YOUR_CLIENT_SECRET', 'YOUR_CLIENT_ID');

/* Normally $storedAccessToken
 * would be pulled from your database.
 * We're going to set it inline for this example */
$storedAccessToken = '82d1cd8228104babce0292497ebbf26fd21fa93c';
$SocialAdr->setAccessToken($storedAccessToken);
$result = $SocialAdr->urlValidate('http://somesite.com');

?>

Debugging

If your run into problems, or things don’t appear to be working correctly, you can use the built in SDK debugging functionality to help figure out where the point of failure is.

<?php
require_once("/path/to/SocialAdrAPI.php");
$SocialAdr = new SocialAdrAPI('YOUR_CLIENT_ID', 'YOUR_CLIENT_SECRET', 'YOUR_APP_ID');
$SocialAdr->debug=true;
$SocialAdr->urlValidate('http://somesite.com'); //Make an API call
//Output will contain cURL and Request/Response data

}
else{
    echo $validateURL->message; //Why it failed
}

if($getPackages->success){
    $packages = $getPackages->response;
}

Facebook Likes - Add Campaign

fblikesAdd($bookmark_guid, $package_id)

$getPackages = $SocialAdr->fblikesPackages();
if($getPackages->success){

    $bookmark_guid = 12345;
    $addCampaign = $SocialAdr->fblikesAdd($bookmark_guid,$packages[0]->id);
    if($addCampaign->success){
        $campaign_id = $addCampaign->response;
    }
}

Reseller

Reseller - Add Subaccount

Creates a Socialadr Account under the control of the reseller

resellerAdd($SocialAdrSubaccount)

$subaccount = new SocialAdrSubaccount();
$subaccount->name='mysubaccount';
$subaccount->credits=5000;
$subaccount->twitter=true;
$subaccount->facebook_likes=true;
$subaccount->google_plus=true;
$subaccount->linkedin=true;

$addSub = $SocialAdr->resellerAdd($subaccount);
if($addSub->success){
    $sub = $addSub->response;
}

Reseller - Transfer Credits to Subaccount

Transfers credits from the reseller account to the subaccount

resellerCredits($subaccount_guid, $credits)

$subaccount_guid = 12345;
$sendCredits = $SocialAdr->resellerCredits($subaccount_guid, 1000); //Transfers 1000 credits to subaccount
if($sendCredits->success){
    $credits = $sendCredits->response;
}

Reseller - Control Subaccount

You can execute almost any API call as one of your subaccounts. Once setSubaccountGUID() has been set, every API call from that point in the code will be executed as your subaccount. setSubaccountGUID($guid)

$SocialAdr->setSubaccountGUID(12345);
$SocialAdr->twitterFollowersAdd('https://twitter.com/someaccount', 1);

If you want to go back to making API calls from your account, set the subaccount GUID to null.

$SocialAdr->setSubaccountGUID(null);
$SocialAdr->twitterFollowersAdd('https://twitter.com/someaccount', 1);

    }
}

Twitter Followers - Add Campaign

twitterFollowersAdd($url,$package_id)

$getPackages = $SocialAdr->twitterFollowersPackages();
if($getPackages->success){
    $packages = $getPackages->response;
    $url = 'https://twitter.com/myaccountname';
    $addCampaign = $SocialAdr->twitterFollowersAdd($url,$packages[0]->id);
    if($addCampaign->success){
        $campaign_id = $addCampaign->response;
    }
}

Twitter Followers - History

twitterFollowersHistory($limit=100, $offset=0)

$campaigns = $SocialAdr->twitterFollowersHistory(50,10); //50 campaigns, starting at 10th record
foreach($campaigns as $campaign){
    ...
}
