Build Status

The Wid'op OAuth library is a modern PHP 5.3+ API allowing you to easily obtain a Twitter access token. For now, it supports OAuth Web & Application tokens (not xOAuth).

Here a sample for the Web workflow:

use Widop\HttpAdapter\CurlHttpAdapter;
use Widop\Twitter\OAuth;

// First, instantiate your OAuth client.
$oauth = new OAuth\OAuth(
    new CurlHttpAdapter(),
    new OAuth\OAuthConsumer('consumer_key', 'consumer_secret'),
    new OAuth\Signature\OAuthHmacSha1Signature()

// Second, get/cache a "request token" somewhere (here in session)
if (!isset($_SESSION['my_request_session'])) {
    $requestToken = $oauth->getRequestToken('http://my-app.com/twitter-callback.php');
    $_SESSION['my_request_session'] = serialize($requestToken);
} else {
    $requestToken = unserialize($_SESSION['my_request_token']);

// Third, redirect the user on twitter for getting permissions
echo '<a href="'.$oauth->getAuthorizeUrl($requestToken).'">Authorize the application</a>';

// Then, get an "access token"
if (isset($_REQUEST['oauth_verifier'])) {
    $accessToken = $oauth->getAccessToken($requestToken, $_REQUEST['oauth_verifier']);

    // Save the access token somewhere for further purpose!
