Installation

Prerequisites

  • PHP version 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, or 7.4

Install with Composer

Add php-http-client to your composer.json file. If you are not using Composer, you should be. It's an excellent way to manage dependencies in your PHP application.

{
  "require": {
    "sendgrid/php-http-client": "^3.10.6"
  }
}

Then at the top of your PHP script require the autoloader:

require __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';

Then from the command line:

composer install

Install without Composer

You should create a lib directory in the directory of your application and clone to lib repositories php-http-client and sendgrid-php:

$ cd /path/to/your/app
$ mkdir lib
$ cd lib
$ git clone https://github.com/sendgrid/php-http-client.git

In the next step you should create loader.php:

$ cd /path/to/your/app
$ touch loader.php

And add the code below to the loader.php:

<?php

require_once __DIR__ . '/lib/php-http-client/lib/Client.php';
require_once __DIR__ . '/lib/php-http-client/lib/Response.php';

After it you can use the php-http-client library in your project:

<?php

include __DIR__ . '/loader.php';

$client = new SendGrid\Client();

Quick Start

Here is a quick example:

GET /your/api/{param}/call

// include __DIR__ . '/loader.php';
require 'vendor/autoload.php';
$apiKey = YOUR_SENDGRID_API_KEY;
$authHeaders = [
    'Authorization: Bearer ' . $apiKey
];
$client = new SendGrid\Client('https://api.sendgrid.com', $authHeaders);
$param = 'foo';
$response = $client->your()->api()->_($param)->call()->get();

var_dump(
    $response->statusCode(),
    $response->headers(),
    $response->body()
);

POST /your/api/{param}/call with headers, query parameters and a request body with versioning.

// include __DIR__ . '/loader.php';
require 'vendor/autoload.php';
$apiKey = YOUR_SENDGRID_API_KEY;
$authHeaders = [
    'Authorization: Bearer ' . $apiKey
];
$client = new SendGrid\Client('https://api.sendgrid.com', $authHeaders);
$queryParams = [
    'hello' => 0, 'world' => 1
];
$requestHeaders = [
    'X-Test' => 'test'
];
$data = [
    'some' => 1, 'awesome' => 2, 'data' => 3
];
$param = 'bar';
$response = $client->your()->api()->_($param)->call()->post($data, $queryParams, $requestHeaders);

var_dump(
    $response->statusCode(),
    $response->headers(),
    $response->body()
);

If there is an issues with the request, such as misconfigured CURL SSL options, an InvalidRequest will be thrown with message from CURL on why the request failed. Use the message as a hit to troubleshooting steps of your environment.

Usage

Environment Variables

You can do the following to create a .env file:

cp .env_example .env
