This is a simple PHP library for interacting with the Vimeo API.

Before you start

Get started with the Vimeo API

If you’re new to Vimeo APIs, check out Getting Started: The Basics before diving into the content on this page.

Understand the PHP hierarchy

The API docs often use dot notation to represent a hierarchy of data, such as privacy.view. Since the PHP library sends all data using JSON, you must use nested associative arrays instead of dot notation.

// The documentation refers to the following as `privacy.view`
$params = ['privacy' => ['view' => 'disable']];

Install and access the PHP library

To install the PHP library, run the following command:

composer require vimeo/vimeo-api

After installation is complete, you can access the library by using $lib = new \Vimeo\Vimeo($client_id, $client_secret) in a Composer-enabled PHP script.
