README

The goal of the Open Affiliate Report Aggregator (OARA) is to develop a set of PHP classes that can download affiliate reports from a number of affiliate networks, and store the data in a common format.

We provide a simple structure and make it easy to add new networks using the tools available.

This project is being used as part of AffJet, which offers a hosted Affiliate Aggregator service, with a web interface and additional analysis tools.

Development is sponsored by AffJet but we welcome code contributions from anyone.

1. Create the folder with the clone of the code.

git clone https://github.com/fubralimited/php-oara.git php-oara

2. Change the directory to the root of the project

cd php-oara

3. Initialise composer

curl -s https://getcomposer.org/installer | php --
