This Airtable SDK for PHP makes it easier to leverage the Airtable API leveraging popular PHP conventions.

NOTE: This project is under active development, and is NOT ready for use.


Go to:


  • Composer installed globally
  • PHP v7.2+


Via Composer

$ composer require beachcasts/airtable-sdk-php

Quick Start

Base usage requires instantiation of the AirtableClient, as shown below:


use Beachcasts\Airtable\AirtableClient;
use Beachcasts\Airtable\Config;

// Add details to your environment - see documentation for recomendations

$airtableClient = new AirtableClient(Config::fromEnvironment(), <your_baseid>);
$table = $airtableClient->getTable(<your_table_name>);
  1. Update <your_baseid> and <your_table_name> as needed.
  2. the Config::fromEnvironment

For more details of how to use the AirtableClient, see the /docs, where examples highlight using create(), read(), update(), delete(), and list() methods on/with Airtable data.

Change log

Please see CHANGELOG for more information on what has changed recently.


Airtable-SDK has 3 Test Suites: Full, Unit and Integration, we include a Dev requirement against PHPUnit. Please make sure you run the composer install to get all dependencies.

$ composer install

Unit Tests

Running the unit tests is simply telling phpunit to run the "unit" testsuite

$ vendor/bin/phpunit --testsuite=unit

Integration Tests

Running the integration tests will require an actual account and details from Airtable.

  1. Copy the file tests\.env.default to tests\.env
  2. Log into your Airtable account
  3. Add a base using the Start from scratch method. Let the new base creation retain the default Untitled Base name.
  4. Visit Airtable API docs and select your Base
  5. Copy the Base ID from the Introduction section. Look for The ID of this base is Add this to the tests\.env under the TEST_BASE_ID key
  6. Go to Your account and copy your API Key. Add this to the tests\.env under the AIRTABLE_API_KEY key
  7. If you have changed the default Table name away from Table 1 - update the TEST_TABLE_NAME in the tests\.env

Once the .env is configured, tests can be run with the following command:

$ vendor/bin/phpunit --testsuite=integration

Full Test Suite

To run the full Test Suite, you will need to follow the steps outlined for Integration testing. To Exceute, run the following command:

$ vendor/bin/phpunit --testsuite=full


$ vendor/bin/phpunit

Quality Control

To maintain quality control, we maintain use of the following standards:

  • PSR-2 Coding Standard,
  • PSR-4 standard for Autoload locations (via composer)
  • PSR-7 standard for HTTP messages (via GuzzleHttp implementation)

We provide a phpcs.xml.dist within the codebase to validate the Coding standard using Code Sniffer (included as dev dependency in our composer.json manifest)

To run the codesniffer against the codebase, use the following command.

$ vendor/bin/phpcs --standard=phpcs.xml.dist src
