Laravel PHP SDK for CloudConvert APIs

dev-master 2019-10-11 10:41 UTC


This is the official Laravel package for the CloudConvert API v2. It is not compatible with API v1! This package depends on the PHP SDK v3.

You can install the package via composer:

composer require cloudconvert/cloudconvert-laravel

This package (cloudconvert/cloudconvert-php) is not tied to any specific library that sends HTTP messages. Instead, it uses Httplug to let users choose whichever PSR-7 implementation and HTTP client they want to use.

If you just want to get started quickly you should run the following command:

composer require cloudconvert/cloudconvert-laravel php-http/guzzle6-adapter guzzlehttp/psr7

This will install the library itself along with an HTTP client adapter that uses Guzzle as transport method (provided by Httplug) and a PSR-7 implementation (provided by Guzzle).

Next you must publish the config file.

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="CloudConvert\Laravel\Providers\CloudConvertServiceProvider"

This is the content that will be published to config/cloudconvert.php:

return [

     * You can generate API keys here:

    'api_key' => env('CLOUDCONVERT_API_KEY', ''),

     * Use the CloudConvert Sanbox API (Defaults to false, which enables the Production API).
    'sandbox' => env('CLOUDCONVERT_SANDBOX', false),

     * You can find the secret used at the webhook settings:
    'webhook_signing_secret' => env('CLOUDCONVERT_WEBHOOK_SIGNING_SECRET', '')



Once configured you can call all the PHP SDK methods on the CloudConvert facade.

use \CloudConvert\Laravel\Facades\CloudConvert;
use \CloudConvert\Models\Job;
use \CloudConvert\Models\Task;

    (new Job())
        (new Task('import/url', 'import-my-file'))
        (new Task('convert', 'convert-my-file'))
            ->set('input', 'import-my-file')
            ->set('output_format', 'pdf')
            ->set('some_other_option', 'value')
        (new Task('export/url', 'export-my-file'))
            ->set('input', 'convert-my-file')

Please check the PHP SDK repository for the full documentation.


This package can help you handle the CloudConvert webhooks. Out of the box it will verify the CloudConvert signature of all incoming requests. You can easily define event subscribers when specific events hit your app.


You can create your webhook in the webhook settings and point it to something like Make sure to to configure the shown signing secret in the config file of this package.

In the routes file of your app you must pass that route to a controller provided by this package.

Route::post('webhook/cloudconvert', '\CloudConvert\Laravel\CloudConvertWebhooksController');

Because CSRF token validation is not availble for this route, you must also add that route to the except array of the VerifyCsrfToken middleware:

protected $except = [


Whenever a webhook event hits your app, the package fires a cloudconvert-webhooks::<event-name> event (for example cloudconvert-webhooks::job.finished).

The payload of the event will be a WebhookEvent from the PHP SDK. An event subscriber in your app could look like this:


namespace App\Listeners;

use CloudConvert\Models\WebhookEvent;
use CloudConvert\Models\Job;
use CloudConvert\Models\Task;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Log;

class CloudConvertEventListener

    public function onJobFinished(WebhookEvent $event) {
        $job = $event->getJob();
        $job->getTag(); // can be used to store an ID
        $exportTask = $job->getTasks()
            ->status(Task::STATUS_FINISHED) // get the task with 'finished' status ...
            ->name('my-export-task')[0];    // ... and with the name 'my-export-task'
        // $exportTask->getResult() ...

    public function onJobFailed(WebhookEvent $event) {
        $job = $event->getJob();
        $job->getTag(); // can be used to store an ID
        $failingTask =  $job->getTasks()->status(Task::STATUS_ERROR)[0];
        Log::error('CloudConvert task failed: ' . $failingTask->getId());

    public function subscribe($events)
