A single PHP class meant to handle the utility of dealing with the conversion between SteamID formats.

Why use this?

If you want to parse a steam URL without importing an entire library to do so, this is a simple snippet that will return CommunityID, SteamID, UserID, and Profile Thumbnail as an easy-to-reference array of values.


If you wish to use the resolveVanity() or toAvatar() functions, you will need to input a Steam WebAPI Key. Learn more @


You can utilize the source code one of two ways:

  1. Use composer in your project folder
composer require chx2/steamidparser
  1. Copy steamid.class.php from the src/ directory of the repo directly into the location of your choice in your project


To use this, you will need to provide an input to convert as well your SteamWebAPI Key. For example:

require __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';
$id = new SteamID($input,$api_key);

So if I were to pass my own custom steam url, through the function, if I want to convert this custom URL to a SteamID, I would do the following:

if ($id->resolveVanity()) {
  $communityid = $id->toCommunityID();
  $steamid = $id->toSteamID();
  $userid = '[U:1:'.$id->toUserID().']';
