This library provides a simple PHP interface to the Canadian Bitcoin Index API.

Installing via Composer

The recommended way to install the library is through Composer.

# Install Composer
curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php

# Add Chain-PHP as a dependency
php composer.phar require cbix/cbix-php:dev-master

After installing, you need to require Composer's autoloader:

require 'vendor/autoload.php';


Simply call the make method on the Cbix class.

$cbix = Cbix::make();


All methods of the CBIX API are supported and more will be added when fully supported.

$index = $cbix->index();
$history = $cbix->history(['limit=100']);
$convert = $cbix->convert(500, 'CAD', 'BTC');
$news = $cbix->news();
$summary = $cbix->summary();
$orderbook = $cbix->orderbook(['limit=25']);
$volatility = $cbix->volatility(['limit=10']);


If there are any issues during the API request a CbixException will be thrown which can be caught and managed according to your application needs.

try {
    $index = $cbix->index();
    echo $index->index->value;
} catch (CbixException $e) {
    //There was an error more information in $e->getMessage();

Unit Tests

This library uses PHPUnit for unit testing. In order to run the unit tests, you'll first need to install the dependencies of the project using Composer: php composer.phar install --dev. You can then run the tests using vendor/bin/phpunit. The library comes with a set of mocked responses from the CBIX API for running the unit tests.
