A library that implements the php-extended/php-api-nz-mega-interface library


A php API wrapper to connect to API, in full object oriented mode.

This library takes care of not disabling https certificate checking when calling for mega servers.

This API is in construction, only few of its methods are available, but contributions are welcome !

/!\ Mega seems to badly support the file_get_contents() function. /!\ Use a curl-based http client for better performance.

This library is inspired by the smartinm/mega-php-client library and the tutorial by Julien Marchand.

The installation of this library is made via composer and the autoloading of all classes of this library is made through their autoloader.

  • Download composer.phar from their website.
  • Then run the following command to install this library as dependency :
  • php composer.phar php-extended/php-api-nz-mega-object ^6

Basic Usage

For downloading the files of a folder on mega, and put them into a folder on your filesystem, please look at the example script.

This library offers an API to see files, and download them, as follows :

The constructor needs the path and key to access mega. MegaEndpoint : : __construct(HttpJsonEndpoint $endpoint, string $full_url) : Mega

Once a new MegaEndpoint object is created, you may search for its root folder with the method : MegaEndpoint : : getRootNodeInfo() : MegaNode;

Once you have a MegaNode object, you may search for its children with the method : MegaEndpoint : : getChildren(MegaNodeId $node_id) : MegaNode[];

The MegaNodeId object may be obtained with the MegaNode : getNodeId() : MegaNodeId method. Node Ids are common objects to refer to specific nodes in a hierarchy, and the Mega class may retrieve MegaNode objects with the method MegaEndpoint : : getNodeInfo(MegaNodeId $node_id) : MegaNode.

To separate nodes that represents folders and node that represents files, use the MegaNode : : getNodeType() : integer method. If the value is MegaNode : : TYPE_FOLDER, then the node represents a folder, and if the value is MegaNode : : TYPE_FILE, then it represents a downloadable file.

Then, to download files (folders are not downloadable for obvious reasons), use the MegaEndpoint : : downloadFile(MegaNode $node) : string method, that returns the raw string data of the downloaded file, unencrypted.

Beware that this method does not uses streams directly to your filesystem, and may use a lot of memory if the file is really big.

To check the size of a file (folders have no size given Mega's API), use the MegaNode : : getNodeSize() : integer method. Beware that 32 bits system (or 32 bits php as windows have) may not handle the file sizes for large files very well.

Finally, almost every method of this library throws PhpExtended\Mega\MegaException dues to various factors, mainly because cryptographic errors that may occur anywhere. Remember to encapsulate calls to this library with try { ... } catch(MegaException $e) { ... } blocks.
