Laravel 5.*

Register the Social service by adding it to the providers array.

'providers' => array(
    ...
    Edujugon\SocialAutoPost\Providers\SocialAutoPostServiceProvider::class
)

Let's add the Alias facade, add it to the aliases array.

'aliases' => array(
    ...
    'SocialAutoPost' => Edujugon\SocialAutoPost\Facades\SocialAutoPost::class,
)

Publish the package's configuration file to the application's own config directory

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Edujugon\SocialAutoPost\Providers\SocialAutoPostServiceProvider" --tag="config"

Go to laravel facade sample directly.

Configuration

The default configuration for all Social sites is located in Config/Config.php

Before using this package you should create your app in your social site and then update the config values like follows:

'twitter' => [
        'consumerKey' => 'YOUR_CONSUMER_KEY',
        'consumerSecret' => 'YOUR_CONSUMER_SECRET',
        'accessToken' => 'YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN',
        'accessTokenSecret' => 'YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN_SECRET'
    ]

You can dynamically set those values or add new ones calling the method config like follows:

$social->config(['consumerKey' => 'new_key','accessToken' => 'new_access_token']);

Usage

$social = new SocialAutoPost;

By default it will use Twitter as Social Site but you can also pass the name as parameter:

$social = new SocialAutoPost('twitter');

Now you may use any method what you need. Please see the API List.
