The purpose of this library is to be an object orientated alternative to the official BitPay PHP library.

The library is designed to make it easier to integrate BitPay in to more heavy PHP frameworks that use composer as a package manager such as Symfony2 and Laravel.

The library is written by myself, Peter Fox.

Version

1.1.0 - 16th March 2014 - Allows for throwing exception when an error api response is returned 1.0.0 - 5th Feburary 2014

Installation

Add to your projects composer.json

{
    "require": {
        "peterfox/bitpayclient":"1.0.*"
    }
}

Then run composer install or composer update to install this package.

Usage

The most basic use is as follows:

$client = new BitPayClient('YOUR-API-KEY');

$invoiceResponse = $client->createInvoice(0.0001, 'BTC');

You can supply further parameters for creating an invoice via a third array parameter (to see all possible parameters read the BitPay API):

$client = new BitPayClient('YOUR-API-KEY');

$invoiceResponse = $client->createInvoice(0.0001, 'BTC', ['redirectUrl' => 'http://somewhere']);

You can also supply a PosData value as an array and it will be sent as a Base64 encoded string (please note that other data will be modified to be base64 as well):

$client = new BitPayClient('YOUR-API-KEY');

$invoiceResponse = $client->createInvoice(0.0001, 'BTC', ['posData' => ['some_id' => 100]]);

The library also allows for making responses from Array (like from a $_POST):

$client = new BitPayClient('YOUR-API-KEY');

$invoiceData = [
            'id'=> 'CNRWBUPUZs9foP2ysZBBc',
            'url'=> 'https://bitpay.com/invoice?CNRWBUPUZs9foP2ysZBBc',
            'status' => 'new',
            'btcPrice' => '0.0001',
            'price' => 0.0001,
            'currency' => 'BTC',
            'invoiceTime' => 1391301679184,
            'expirationTime' => 1391302579184,
            'currentTime' => 1391302121888
            ];

$invoiceResponse = $client->getInvoiceFromArray($invoiceData);

There's also the functionality of getting an invoice from BitPay's API if you so wish:

$client = new BitPayClient('YOUR-API-KEY');

$invoiceGetResponse = $client->getInvoice('CNRWBUPUZs9foP2ysZBBc');

Testing

After cloning and installing this repo you can run /vendor/bin/phpunit in the root of the project and test it.

You will have to create a file called apikey.txt in the root directory of the project containing your api to actually run these tests.

The testing of this project uses PHP-VCR which is useful for running the tests multiple times as testCreateInvoice_LimitExceeded() test will cause BitPay to send you an email as a warning which can be a bit tedious. The fixtures are all stored in test/fixtures/.
