A PHP client for authenticating with Yelp using OAuth and consuming the API.

Install

Via Composer

$ composer require stevenmaguire/yelp-php

Usage

This package currently supports v2 and v3 (Fusion) of the Yelp API. Each version of the Yelp API maps to a different client, as the APIs are very different. Each client has separate documentation; links provided below.

Create client

Each version of the Yelp API maps to a different client, as the APIs are very different. A client factory is available to create appropriate clients.

v2 Client Example

$options = array(
    'consumerKey' => 'YOUR COSUMER KEY',
    'consumerSecret' => 'YOUR CONSUMER SECRET',
    'token' => 'YOUR TOKEN',
    'tokenSecret' => 'YOUR TOKEN SECRET',
    'apiHost' => 'api.yelp.com' // Optional, default 'api.yelp.com'
);

$client = \Stevenmaguire\Yelp\ClientFactory::makeWith(
    $options,
    \Stevenmaguire\Yelp\Version::TWO
);

v3 Client Example

$options = array(
    'accessToken' => 'YOUR ACCESS TOKEN', // Required, unless apiKey is provided
    'apiHost' => 'api.yelp.com', // Optional, default 'api.yelp.com',
    'apiKey' => 'YOUR ACCESS TOKEN', // Required, unless accessToken is provided
);

$client = \Stevenmaguire\Yelp\ClientFactory::makeWith(
    $options,
    \Stevenmaguire\Yelp\Version::THREE
);

Prior to December 7, 2017 accessToken was required to authenticate requests. Since then, apiKey is the preferred authentication method. This library supports both accessToken and apiKey, prioritizing apiKey over accessToken if both are provided.

v3 Stevenmaguire\Yelp\Version::THREE API-GUIDE-v3.md
Get Rate Limit data from most recent request

For the v3 client, rate limiting data is avaiable after a recent request.

// $latestRateLimit will be null if an http request hasn't been successfully completed.
$latestRateLimit = $client->getRateLimit();

// The maximum number of calls you can make per day
$latestDailyLimit = $latestRateLimit->dailyLimit;

// The number of calls remaining within the current day
$latestRemaining = $latestRateLimit->remaining;

// The time at which the current rate limiting window will expire as an ISO 8601 timestamp
$latestResetTime = $latestRateLimit->resetTime;

// The time at which the current rate limiting data was observed as an ISO 8601 timestamp
$latestCreatedAt = $latestRateLimit->createdAt;

Exceptions

If the API request results in an Http error, the client will throw a Stevenmaguire\Yelp\Exception\HttpException that includes the response body, as a string, from the Yelp API.

$responseBody = $e->getResponseBody(); // string from Http request
$responseBodyObject = json_decode($responseBody);

Advanced usage

Both the v3 client and the v2 client expose some public methods that allow overiding default behavior by providing alternative HTTP clients and requests.

$client = new \Stevenmaguire\Yelp\v3\Client(array(
    'accessToken' => $accessToken,
));

// Create a new guzzle http client
$specialHttpClient = new \GuzzleHttp\Client([
    // ... some special configuration
]);

// Update the yelp client with the new guzzle http client
// then get business data
$business = $client->setHttpClient($specialHttpClient)
    ->getBusiness('the-motel-bar-chicago');

// Create request for other yelp API resource not supported by yelp-php
$request = $client->getRequest('GET', '/v3/some-future-endpoint');

// Send that request
$response = $client->getResponse($request);

// See the contents
echo $response->getBody();

Upgrading with Yelp API v2 support from yelp-php 1.x to yelp-php 2.x

// same options for all
$options = array(
    'consumerKey' => 'YOUR COSUMER KEY',
    'consumerSecret' => 'YOUR CONSUMER SECRET',
    'token' => 'YOUR TOKEN',
    'tokenSecret' => 'YOUR TOKEN SECRET',
    'apiHost' => 'api.yelp.com' // Optional, default 'api.yelp.com'
);


// yelp-php 1.x
$client = new Stevenmaguire\Yelp\Client($options);

// yelp-php 2.x - option 1
$client = \Stevenmaguire\Yelp\ClientFactory::makeWith(
    $options,
    \Stevenmaguire\Yelp\Version::TWO
);

// yelp-php 2.x - option 2
$client = new \Stevenmaguire\Yelp\v2\Client($options);
