A Bitly API Wrapper for Lumen and Laravel (supports OAuth endpoints). It should support all basic endpoints that are found/available via http://dev.bitly.com/api.html.

====== Install:

"javiertelioz/bitlylumen": "dev-master"


sudo composer require javiertelioz/bitlylumen dev-maste


After updating composer add the following lines to register provider in bootstrap/app.php


====== Using:

  1. Simply download the bitly.php file and include it in your project directory

  2. Make sure to include the file whenever you want to access the bitly api functionality... include_once('bitly.php');

  3. Set up an associative array with the required parameters for the endpoint you want to access.

  4. Make the Bitly::get or Bitly::post call, passing in the endpoint and the parameters as defined via the bit.ly API documentation ( http://dev.bitly.com/api.html ).

============= Examples:

$params = array();
$params['longUrl'] = 'http://google.com';
$params['domain'] = 'domain.com';
$results = Bitly::get('shorten', $params);
$params = array();
$params['url'] = 'http://google.com';
$results = Bitly::get('link/lookup', $params);

a slightly more complex example with complex params (simply pass a third param of true when dealing with complex params):

$params = array();
$params['hash'] = array('dYhyia','dYhyia','abc123');
$results = Bitly::get('expand', $params, true);

You can find more detailed examples in the test.php file within this repo.

============= SPECIAL NOTE:

To use the new OAuth endpoints, you must first obtain an access token for a user. You do this by passing the user off to bit.ly to approve your apps access to their account...and then you use the return code along with the bitly_oauth_access_token method to obtain the actual bitly access token:

  1. Present the user with a link as such:


  1. a code ($_REQUEST['code']) will be supplied as a param to the url Bit.ly redirects to. So you can then execute:
$results = bitly_oauth_access_token($_REQUEST['code'],
  1. If everything goes correctly, you should now have a $results['access_token'] value that you can use with the oauth requests for that user.
