$client = new \GuzzleHttp\Client(); $generator = new \Spatie\Packagist\PackagistUrlGenerator(); $packagist = new \Spatie\Packagist\PackagistClient($client, $generator);
// All packages $packagist->getPackagesNames(); // List packages by type. $packagist->getPackagesNamesByType('composer-plugin'); // List packages by organization $packagist->getPackagesNamesByVendor('spatie');
// Search packages by name. $packagist->searchPackagesByName('packagist'); // Search packages by tag. $packagist->searchPackagesByTags('psr-3'); // Search packages by type. $packagist->searchPackagesByType('composer-plugin'); // Combined search. $packagist->searchPackages('packagist', ['type' => 'library']);
Searching for packages returns a paginated result. You can change the pagination settings by adding more parameters.
// Get the third page, 10 items per page. $packagist->searchPackagesByName('packagist', 3, 10);
// Using the Composer metadata. (faster, but less data) $packagist->getPackageMetadata('spatie/packagist-api'); $packagist->getPackageMetadata('spatie', 'packagist-api'); // Using the API. (slower, cached for 12 hours by Packagist. $packagist->getPackage('spatie/packagist-api'); $packagist->getPackage('spatie', 'packagist-api');
