A set of PSR-0 autoloadable classes for dealing with the Salmon protocol and magic signatures

v0.1.0 2012-08-29 17:20 UTC


Some PHP classes for dealing with Salmon, both original code and modified forks of stuff which is elsewhere. Packaged up as a Composer package, all PSR-0 compliant for awesome autoloading.



Install using Composer. If you don't already have composer, download it per their instructions. Then:

  1. Add indieweb/salmon to your project's composer.json file, so it looks a bit like this:

     	"require" : {
     		"indieweb/salmon": "*"
     	"minimum-stability": "dev"

    If you've never used composer, this is just specifying that your project needs the indieweb/salmon package in order to work, it doesn't matter which version you get, and it's all right to use packages which are in development.

  2. Run php composer.phar update

  3. Provided there were no errors, you should now have indieweb/salmon installed


indieweb/push supports psr-0 autoloading, so using the classes is easy provided you're familiar with PHP namespaces.

// This script uses some indieweb/salmon code

use indieweb\Salmon\MagicSignatures;

$ms = new MagicSignatures;

$json_magic_envelope = $ms -> sign('Here is some data', 'text/text', '/path/to/your/key/private.pem', '');

if ($ms -> verify($json_magic_envelope, '/path/to/your/key/public.pem'))
	// Verified! The envelope was signed by the issuer
	// Verification failed - the envelope was either incorrectly handled or has been modified in transit!
