A simple Laravel 5 client for the Genderize.io API. It provides a fluent interface for easy request building.


Step 1: Install Through Composer

composer require pixelpeter/laravel5-genderize-api-client

Step 2: Add the Service Provider (not needed with v2.x because of auto discovery)

Add the service provider in app/config/app.php

'provider' => [

Step 3: Add the Facade

Add the alias in app/config/app.php

'aliases' => [
    'Genderize' => Pixelpeter\Genderize\Facades\Genderize::class,

Step 4: Publish the configuration file

This is only needed when you have an API key from Genderize.io

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Pixelpeter\Genderize\GenderizeServiceProvider"


Send requests

Single name

use Genderize;


Multiple names (max. 10)

use Genderize;

Genderize::name(['John', 'Jane'])->get();

// or for better readability you can use the plural
Genderize::names(['John', 'Jane'])->get();

Add language and country options

use Genderize;


Working with the response

For single usage

use Genderize;

$response = Genderize::name('Peter')->get();

print $response->result->gender; // 'male'
print $response->result->name; // 'Peter'
print $response->result->probability; '0.99'
print $response->result->count; 144
print $response->result->isMale(); true
print $response->result->isFemale(); false
print $response->result->isNotMale(); false
print $response->result->isNotFemale(); true

For batch usage

use Genderize;

$response = Genderize::names(['John', 'Jane'])->country('US')->lang('EN')->get();

foreach($response->result as $row)
    print $row->name;

Getting information about the request and limits

use Genderize;

$response = Genderize::name('Peter')->get();

print $response->meta->code; // 200 - HTTP response code
print $response->meta->limit; // 1000 - Max number of allowed requests
print $response->meta->remaining; // 950 - Number of requests left
print $response->meta->reset->diffInSeconds(); // Carbon\Carbon - time left till reset
