A PHP wrapper for Full Contacts's API

v0.9.1 2014-12-29 07:54 UTC

This package is not auto-updated.

Last update: 2020-03-30 19:38:04 UTC


This is a PHP helper for the FullContact API -

It is modeled after the Twilio PHP Helper library because I think it's generally well done and thought through. This isn't official but should generally work except for the incomplete items in the TODO list below.

This is v0.9.0 so it is pretty stable and I don't expect the interfaces to change much if at all.


This assumes you have cURL installed along with the corresponding php-curl interface. It could be extended to support other HTTP transport tools but I'm kinda lazy.

Getting started

You have to have a FullContact account. Then copy the creds-dist.php file to creds.php and fill in the API Key. Then you should be able to run any of the scripts in /examples out of the box.

The code itself is pretty simple. You initialize the selected object with the API Key and go from there:

$this->name = new Services_FullContact_Name($apikey);


This is set up to use a basic PHPUnit configuration. I happened to use 3.7.8 but it shouldn't make a difference. From the root of the project, you should be able to execute the tests using:

phpunit tests/
