This is a (very) simple wrapper for the roaring.io API.

The wrapper is designed to be quick and easy to use – no fuzz. Just create a new object with your API-keys and then call the endpoint you want to call. Though you yourself has to do the data-manipulation to your needs and liking.

The package also includes a service provider for Laravel.

On a sidenote; this package uses the httpful-library for the HTTP-requests. While Guzzle and the like may generally be recommended, it is easy to introduce conflicts in some frameworks with different versions of those more common libraries.


PHP ^7.3 / ^8.0

If you want to use the Laravel Service Provider, Laravel 5.5 and above is supported.


$ composer require olssonm/roaring


Laravel should auto-discover the service provider. You may also manually add it to your providers-array in config/app.php:

'providers' => [

You may set an alias using the facade in config/app.php:

'aliases' => [
    'Roaring' => Olssonm\Roaring\Laravel\Facades\Roaring::class

For the Roaring object to initialise properly using dependancy injection/the facade, you will need to set your key and secret in /config/services.php:

'roaring' => [
    'key' => env('ROARING_KEY', 'xxx'),
    'secret' => env('ROARING_SECRET', 'zzz')


Using the wrapper is very simple – just initiate the object and call the endpoint you wish to use.

Used standalone/via main class:

use \Olssonm\Roaring\Roaring;

$response = (new Roaring('key', 'secret'))

Via the Laravel facade/dependancy injection:

use Roaring;

$response = Roaring::get('/se/company/overview/1.1/5567164818')

Roaring.io uses the OAuth-protocol – currently a new OAuth token is created automatically upon initialisation unless an already existing token is passed to the Roaring-constructor.

Because the getResponse()-method always returns the latest response you can retrieve the token data by just creating a new object and returning the response:

$token = (new Roaring('key', 'secret'))->getResponse('body');


// object(stdClass)#26 (4) {
//   ["access_token"]=>
//   string(36) "xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx"
//   ["scope"]=>
//   string(28) "am_application_scope default"
//   ["token_type"]=>
//   string(6) "Bearer"
//   ["expires_in"]=>
//   int(2184)
// }

You can also use getToken() to retrieve it. This gives you the ability to reuse a token (mostly it is quite unnecessary though – just saves you a request if you know your token is still valid) by passing it as the third parameter:

use Olssonm\Roaring\Roaring;

$response = (new Roaring('key', 'secret', $token))

The returned object is always of the type stdClass (internally httpful just unpacks the returned JSON to setup the object).

With getResponse() you will recieve the entire response, you may also for example use getResponse('body') to only retrieve the body, getResponse('code') to get the code-attribute and so on.


First you will need sandbox-keys from roaring.io, once obtained copy /tests/config.example.json to /tests/config.json, set your keys and then run:

$ composer test


$ phpunit
