PHP development kit for prismic.io
- dev-master / 1.0.x-dev
READMEInstall the kit for your project
First of all, please install apc to have the default build-in cache support.
Now, the best way to install the library in your project is with the composer package manager (install it if you haven't yet)
Then run this from your project's root in order to add the dependency:
$ composer require prismic/php-sdk
If asked for a version, type in 'dev-master' (unless you want another version):
Please provide a version constraint for the prismic/php-sdk requirement: dev-master
Usage in your PHP code:
<?php include_once __DIR__.'/../vendor/autoload.php'; use Prismic\Api;
The kit is compatible and tested with PHP5.3 and above.Get started with prismic.io Get started using the kit
Also on our prismic.io developer's portal, on top of our full documentation, you will:
- get a thorough introduction of how to use prismic.io kits, including this one.
- see what else is available for PHP: starter projects, examples, ...
To get a detailed documentation of the PHP kit's variables and methods, please check out the prismic.io PHP kit's documentation.Specific PHP kit syntax
Thanks to PHP's syntax, this kit contains some mild differences and syntastic sugar over the section of our documentation that tells you how to use prismic.io kits in general (which you should read first). The differences are listed here:
- Rather that using
Api.form('everything')to find the form to query on, use the
Api.forms()method, which returns an array. Your call will therefore look like this:
asHtml()function takes an object implementing the
LinkResolverinterface as a parameter, which doesn't take the ref into account. If you want to use your ref in your URLs (as you should), you will have to store it globally. A clean way would by building a
Contextobject (as discussed in our cross-technology kits and helpers documentation), and store this object globally (this is what is done in our PHP plain starter kit).
Knowing all that, here is typical code written with the PHP kit:
- A typical API object instantiation looks like this:
- A typical querying looks like this:
$api->forms()->everything->query('[[:d = at(document.type, "product")]]')->ref($ref)->submit()
- A typical fragment manipulation looks like this:
- A typical fragment serialization to HTML looks like this:

Clone this GitHub repository, then install Composer if you haven't, and run:
$ composer installTest
Please write tests for any bugfix or new feature.
If you find existing code that is not optimally tested and wish to make it better, we really appreciate it; but you should document it on its own branch and its own pull request.
Tests are run by running the command
Some of the kit's tests check stuff that are built on top of APC and need APC to work from the command line. If you've installed and enabled APC, and your cache tests don't pass:
- check if your APC is enabled for your command line, by running
php -i | grep apc; if no output is displayed, then maybe the APC extension you installed and enabled is only enabled in apache but not for your command line. Check how your OS works to make that happen, and if it involves changing a php.ini file, make sure it's the right php.ini (you might have one for apache, and one for the command line)
- if APC is enabled for the command line, and yet the tests still fail, make sure your
apc.enable_cli(which you see in the output of
php -i | grep apc) is 'On'. If it's not, add this at the end of your php.ini:
apc.enable_cli = 1. Make sure it's the right php.ini (you might have one for apache, and one for the command line)
Please document any bugfix or new feature.
If you find existing code that is not optimally documented and wish to make it better, we really appreciate it; but you should document it on its own branch and its own pull request.
