The best way to install Elomentary is via git and Composer!

Composer is a dependency manager for PHP. The easiest way to install Composer for *nix (including Mac):

curl -sS | php
mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer

More detailed installation instructions for multiple platforms can be found in the Composer Documentation.

Normal installation

# Download Elomentary
git clone elomentary
# Download dependencies
cd elomentary
composer update --no-dev

That's it! If you ever need to update Elomentary, just use the following commands:

# Update Elomentary
cd /path/to/elomentary
git pull
# Update Elomentary dependencies
composer update --no-dev

Development installation

If you want to contribute to Elomentary development, you'll want to download the dependencies for performing unit tests as well.

# Make a projects directory if it doesn't already exist.
mkdir -p $HOME/libs
# Download Elomentary and development dependencies.
git clone $HOME/libs/elomentary
# Download dependencies.
composer update --working-dir $HOME/libs/elomentary


In day-to-day projects, you may want to require Elomentary using Composer's autoloader. You can add a requirement like so:

  "require": {
    "tableau-mkt/elomentary": "*"
  "minimum-stability": "dev"

Basic usage


// This file is generated by Composer
require_once 'vendor/autoload.php';

$client = new \Eloqua\Client();
$client->authenticate('MySite', 'My.User', 'BatteryHorseStaple');
$contacts = $client->api('contacts')->search('*');

From $client, you can access all implemented Eloqua API services.
