Bynder PHP Library
The main goal of this SDK is to speed up the integration of Bynder customers who use PHP. Making it easier to connect to the Bynder API (https://bynder.docs.apiary.io) and executing requests on it.
The PHP SDK requires the following in order to fully work:
PHP >= 5.6, older versions of PHP not recommended
curl, although you can use your own non-cURL client if you prefer
Composer should handle all the dependencies automatically.
The Bynder PHP SDK is published as a composer package in packagist and can be found here:
This SDK depends on a few libraries in order to work, installing it with Composer should take care of everything automatically.
To install the SDK with Composer. Run the following command at the root of the project:
composer require bynder/bynder-php-sdk
To use the SDK, we use Composer's autoload in order to include all the files automatically:
This is a simple example on how to retrieve data from the Bynder asset bank. For a more detailed example of implementation refer to the sample code.
Before executing any request to the Bynder API we need to instantiate the BynderApi class, the following example shows how to use the BynderApiFactory to construct a BynderApi instance:
$bynder = new BynderClient(new Configuration( $bynderDomain, $redirectUri, $clientId, $clientSecret ));
The SDK allows the usage of the Guzzle request options. This can be done by passing the last argument when initiating the Configuration object:
$requestOptions = ['proxy' => 'http://MY-PROXY.URL:PORT_NUM']; $bynderApi = BynderClient(new Configuration( ..., $requestOptions ));
After getting the BynderClient service configured successfully we need to get an instance of the AssetBankManager in order to do any of the API calls relative to the Bynder Asset Bank module:
$assetBankManager = $bynder->getAssetBankManager();
And with this, we can start our request to the API, listed in the Methods Available section following. Short example of getting all the Media Items:
$mediaList = $assetBankManager->getMediaList();
This call will return a list with all the Media Items available in the Bynder environment. Note that some of the calls accept a query array in order to filter the results via the API call params (see Bynder API Docs) for more details. For instance, if we only wanted to retrieve 2 images here is what the call would look like:
$mediaList = $assetBankManager->getMediaList( [ 'limit' => 2, 'type' => 'image' ] );
All the calls are Asynchronous, which means they will return a Promise object, making it a bit more flexible in order to adjust to any kind of application. Again, for a more thorough example there is a sample application use case in this repo.
These are the methods currently available on the Bynder PHP SDK, refer to the Bynder API Docs) for more specific details on the calls.
Handles the process of generating and setting the access token required for the requests to the API. Also has calls related to users.
getAssetBankManager(); getAuthorizationUrl(); getAccessToken(); getUsers(); getUser($userId, $query); getCurrentUser(); getSecurityProfile($profileId);
All the Asset Bank related calls, provides information and access to Media management.
getBrands(); getMediaList($query); getMediaInfo($mediaId, $versions); getMetaproperties(); getMetaproperty($propertyId); getMetapropertyDependencies($propertyId); getMetapropertyOptions($query); getMetapropetryGlobalOptionDependencies(); getMetapropertyOptionDependencies($propertyId); getMetapropertySpecificOptionDependencies($propertyId, $optionId, $query); getTags(); getCategories(); getSmartfilters(); uploadFileAsync($data); deleteMedia($mediaId); modifyMedia($mediaId, array $data); getDerivatives(); getMediaDownloadLocation($mediaId, $type = 'original'); getMediaDownloadLocationByVersion($mediaId, $version); getMediaDownloadLocationForAssetItem($mediaId, $itemId, $hash = false); createUsage($query); getUsage($query); deleteUsage($query); getCollections($query); getCollectionAssets($collectionId);
Install dependencies as mentioned above (which will resolve PHPUnit), then you can run the test suite:
Or to run an individual test file:
