Composer installation

Manual installation

When you do not use Composer. You can git checkout or download this repository and include the MessageBird API client manually.


We have put some self-explanatory examples in the examples directory, but here is a quick breakdown on how it works. First, you need to set up a MessageBird\Client. Be sure to replace YOUR_ACCESS_KEY with something real.

require 'autoload.php';

$messageBird = new \MessageBird\Client('YOUR_ACCESS_KEY');

That's easy enough. Now we can query the server for information. Lets use getting your balance overview as an example:

// Get your balance
$balance = $messageBird->balance->read();

Conversations WhatsApp Sandbox

To use the WhatsApp sandbox you need to add \MessageBird\Client::ENABLE_CONVERSATIONSAPI_WHATSAPP_SANDBOX to the list of features you want enabled. Don't forget to replace YOUR_ACCESS_KEY with your actual access key.

$messageBird = new \MessageBird\Client('YOUR_ACCESS_KEY', null, [\MessageBird\Client::ENABLE_CONVERSATIONSAPI_WHATSAPP_SANDBOX]);

If you use a custom HttpClient you will have to manually direct Conversation API request to the WhatsApp sandbox endpoint.
