Handles non-web based OAuth/OAuth2 authentication along with providers for common services

I really don't think you will find these classes useful, if you proceed then don't say I didn't warn you
You are likely looking for thephpleague/oauth1-client or thephpleague/oauth2-client


  • These classes require use of the sql-class project (for storing authorised credentials)
  • The active database must contain a table called oauth (or know about it via the definitions within the Sql class)
  • The table must have the following schema
`type`      varchar(20),
`username`  varchar(100),
`state`     int(11),
`token`     varchar(100),
`secret`    varchar(100),
UNIQUE KEY `type, username` (`type`,`username`)


The OAuth2 classes require manual intervention to get authorised initially, but once your token/secret are in the database they work like the OAuth classes.


Basic twitter example

use duncan3dc\OAuth\Twitter;
use duncan3dc\SqlClass\Sql;

Sql::addServer("twitter", [
    "hostname"  =>  "example.com",
    "username"  =>  "my_twitter_app",
    "password"  =>  "secret_password",
    "database"  =>  "twitter",

$twitter = new Twitter([
    "username"  =>  "my_handle",
    "authkey"   =>  "XfHrRTY25FgkyqxDfbpe",
    "secret"    =>  "gwj8c29GHDWdphmQhGtHPx4GybwRfhXplT3CD0VG1n",

# The authorise method returns null if we are already authorised. Otherwise it returns a url to grant at
if ($url = $twitter->authorise()) {
    throw new \Exception("Authorsation failed, grant permission here: " . $url);

$userData = $twitter->user("my_handle");

If you have extended the Sql class (or are using an interface compatible project) you can have the OAuth classes use that class as so

use duncan3dc\OAuth\Twitter;
use MrCoder\MyCustom\Sql;


$twitter = new Twitter([

If your oauth table is not in the active database, then you can let the Sql class know where it is using the following

use duncan3dc\OAuth\Twitter;
use duncan3dc\SqlClass\Sql;

Sql::addServer("twitter", [
    "hostname"      =>  "example.com",
    "username"      =>  "my_twitter_app",
    "password"      =>  "secret_password",
    "database"      =>  "twitter",
    "definitions"   =>  ["oauth" => "my_other_database"],

$twitter = new Twitter([
