PHP SDK for Contentful's Content Management API.

Contentful is a content management platform for web applications, mobile apps and connected devices. It allows you to create, edit & manage content in the cloud and publish it anywhere via powerful API. Contentful offers tools for managing editorial teams and enabling cooperation between organizations.

The SDK requires at least PHP 7.0.

The SDK is currently in an alpha state. The API might change at any time. It should not be used in production.


To add this package to your composer.json and install it execute the following command:

php composer.phar require contentful/contentful-management:@dev

Then, if not already done, include the Composer autoloader:

require_once 'vendor/autoload.php';


The first thing that needs to be done is initiating an instance of Contentful\Management\Client by giving it an access token. All actions performed using this instance of the Client will be performed with the privileges of the user this token belongs to.

$client = new \Contentful\Management\Client('access-token');

The client itself allows creating, updating and deleting spaces. For any operation that happens within a space, a SpaceManager needs to be retrieved for that one space.

$spaceManager = $client->getSpaceManager('spaceID');

Retrieving and updating an asset might look like this:

$client = new \Contentful\Management\Client('access-token');
$spaceManager = $client->getSpaceManager('spaceID');

$asset = $spaceManager->getAsset('assetID');
$asset->setTitle('en-US', 'Better Title');
