Yahoo! Social SDK - PHP5

Warning

The yos-social-php5 SDK is released alpha and is experimental. The difference between the yos-social-php5 sdk and the yos-social-php sdk is that the storage is left for the user to implement. The new implementation is more flexible as developers can store the OAuth tokens in a php session, in a database, or in memcache. It does not require php sessions unless a partner wants it to. This means there is no method equivalent to 'hasSession' or 'requireSession'. An example of how this functionality could be implemented is in the yos-social-php5/examples/simpleauth/simpleauth.php.

Requirements

The following dependencies are bundled with the Yahoo! PHP SDK, but are under terms of a separate license. See the bundled LICENSE files for more information:

Installation

After downloading and unpacking the release, copy the contents of 'lib' to a directory that is accessible via the PHP include_path method.

Examples

The sdk comes with example code, but you must first upcate the file 'examples/common.inc.php' with your OAuth consumer key and secret.

define('OAUTH_CONSUMER_KEY', '###');
define('OAUTH_CONSUMER_SECRET', '###');
define('OAUTH_DOMAIN', '###');
define('OAUTH_APP_ID', '###');

Create OAuth applications in the Yahoo! Developer Dashboard:

http://developer.yahoo.com/dashboard/

Fetching YQL:

See the bundled sample code in examples/yql/delicious.php.

$yql = new YahooYQLQuery();
$response = $yql->execute('select * from delicious.feeds.popular');

if(isset($response->query) && isset($response->query->results))
{
  var_dump($response->query->results);
}
elseif(isset($response->error))
{
  print sprintf('YQL query failed with error: "%s".', $response->error->description);
}
else
{
  print 'YQL response malformed.';
}

Fetching Social Data:

# Yahoo! OAuth Credentials - http://developer.yahoo.com/dashboard/

$CONSUMER_KEY      = '##';
$CONSUMER_SECRET   = '##';
$APPLICATION_ID    = '##';
$CALLBACK_URL      = '##';

$oauthapp      = new YahooOAuthApplication($CONSUMER_KEY, $CONSUMER_SECRET, $APPLICATION_ID, $CALLBACK_URL);

# Fetch request token
$request_token = $oauthapp->getRequestToken();

# Redirect user to authorization url
$redirect_url  = $oauthapp->getAuthorizationUrl($request_token, $CALLBACK_URL);

# Exchange request token for authorized access token
$access_token  = $oauthapp->getAccessToken($request_token);

# update access token
$oauthapp->token = $access_token;

# fetch user profile
$profile = $oauthapp->getProfile();

var_dump($profile);
