Obtaining the client library

There are two options for obtaining the files for the client library.

Using Composer

You can install the library by adding it as a dependency to your composer.json.

  "require": {
    "davaxi/insee": "^1.0"

Cloning from GitHub

The library is available on GitHub. You can clone it into a local repository with the git clone command.

git clone https://github.com/davaxi/insee.git

What to do with the files

After obtaining the files, ensure they are available to your code. If you're using Composer, this is handled for you automatically. If not, you will need to add the autoload.php file inside the client library.

require '/path/to/insee/folder/autoload.php';


Create account on https://api.insee.fr/ and create application. Get clientId and clientSecret and subscribe API to your application.



require '/path/to/insee/folder/autoload.php';

$client = new Davaxi\Insee();
$client->setClientId('YOUR CLIENT ID');
$client->setClientSecret('YOUR CLIENT SECERT');

$options = [
    'q' => 'SAS',
    'date' => '2020-01-20',
    // ...
// Equivalent
$options = new \Davaxi\Insee\Options();
$options->setQuery('SAS')->setDate('2020-01-20'); // ...

$service = new \Davaxi\Insee\Service\UniteLegale($client);
$response = $service->search($options);

  "header": { ...  },
  "unitesLegales": [ ... ],
  "facettes": [ ... ],
