Build Status

The official PHP client for the Tumblr API.


Basic Usage

The first step is setting up a Client:

$client = new Tumblr\API\Client($consumerKey, $consumerSecret);
$client->setToken($token, $tokenSecret);

And then you can do anything you'd like:

foreach ($client->getUserInfo()->user->blogs as $blog) {
    echo $blog->name . "\n";

User Methods


$client->getDashboardPosts($options = null);
$client->getLikedPosts($options = null);
$client->getFollowedBlogs($options = null);


$client->like($postId, $reblogKey);
$client->unlike($postId, $reblogKey);

Blog Methods


$client->getBlogAvatar($blogName, $size = null);

$client->getBlogPosts($blogName, $options = null);
$client->getBlogLikes($blogName, $options = null);
$client->getBlogFollowers($blogName, $options = null);

$client->getQueuedPosts($blogName, $options = null);
$client->getDraftPosts($blogName, $options = null);
$client->getSubmissionPosts($blogName, $options = null);

Post Methods

$client->createPost($blogName, $data);
$client->editPost($blogName, $id, $data);
$client->deletePost($blogName, $id, $reblogKey);
$client->reblogPost($blogName, $id, $reblogKey, $options = null);

Tagged Methods

$client->getTaggedPosts($tag, $options = null);
