Build Status

A PHP client library for generating URLs with imgix. imgix is a high-performance distributed image processing service. More information can be found at http://www.imgix.com.

Dependencies

The tests have a few external dependencies. To install those:

phpunit --bootstrap src/autoload.php tests/tests.php

Installation

Standalone

Just copy the files to your project, and include the src/autoload.php file. We recommend using Composer if at all possible.

Using Composer

Define the following requirement in your composer.json file:

{
  "require": {
    "imgix/imgix-php": "dev-master"
  }
}

And include the global vendor/autoload.php autoloader.

Basic Usage

To begin creating imgix URLs programmatically, simply add the php files to your project (an example autoloader is also provided). The URL builder can be reused to create URLs for any images on the domains it is provided.

use Imgix\UrlBuilder;

$builder = new UrlBuilder("demos.imgix.net");
$params = array("w" => 100, "h" => 100);
echo $builder->createURL("bridge.png", $params);

// Prints out:
// http://demos.imgix.net/bridge.png?h=100&w=100

For HTTPS support, simply use the setter setUseHttps on the builder

use Imgix\UrlBuilder;

$builder = new UrlBuilder("demos.imgix.net");
$builder->setUseHttps(true);
$params = array("w" => 100, "h" => 100);
echo $builder->createURL("bridge.png", $params);

// Prints out
// https://demos.imgix.net/bridge.png?h=100&w=100

Signed URLs

To produce a signed URL, you must enable secure URLs on your source and then provide your signature key to the URL builder.

use Imgix\UrlBuilder;

$builder = new UrlBuilder("demos.imgix.net");
$builder->setSignKey("test1234");
$params = array("w" => 100, "h" => 100);
echo $builder->createURL("bridge.png", $params);

// Prints out:
// http://demos.imgix.net/bridge.png?h=100&w=100&s=bb8f3a2ab832e35997456823272103a4

Domain Sharded URLs

Domain sharding enables you to spread image requests across multiple domains. This allows you to bypass the requests-per-host limits of browsers. We recommend 2-3 domain shards maximum if you are going to use domain sharding.

In order to use domain sharding, you need to add multiple domains to your source. You then provide an array of these domains to a builder.

use Imgix\UrlBuilder;

$domains = array("demos-1.imgix.net", "demos-2.imgix.net", "demos-3.imgix.net");
$builder = new URLBuilder($domains);
$params = array("w" => 100, "h" => 100);
echo $builder->createURL("bridge.png", $params);
echo $builder->createURL("flower.png", $params);

// Prints out:
// http://demos-1.imgix.net/bridge.png?h=100&w=100
// http://demos-2.imgix.net/flower.png?h=100&w=100

By default, shards are calculated using a checksum so that the image path always resolves to the same domain. This improves caching in the browser. However, you can supply a different strategy that cycles through domains instead. For example:

use Imgix\UrlBuilder;
use Imgix\ShardStrategy;

$domains = array("demos-1.imgix.net", "demos-2.imgix.net", "demos-3.imgix.net");
$builder = new URLBuilder($domains);
$builder->setShardStrategy(ShardStrategy::CYCLE);
$params = array("w" => 100, "h" => 100);
echo $builder->createURL("bridge.png", $params);
echo $builder->createURL("bridge.png", $params);
echo $builder->createURL("bridge.png", $params);
echo $builder->createURL("bridge.png", $params);

// Prints out:
// http://demos-1.imgix.net/bridge.png?h=100&w=100
// http://demos-2.imgix.net/bridge.png?h=100&w=100
// http://demos-3.imgix.net/bridge.png?h=100&w=100
// http://demos-1.imgix.net/bridge.png?h=100&w=100
