Xero oAuth2 app for PHP
This PHP project demonstrates how to use the xero-php-oauth2 SDK. Use composer or clone this repository to your local machine to begin.
You'll be able to connect to a Xero Organisation, make real API calls. The code used to make each API call will be displayed along with the results returned from Xero's API.
To run locally, you'll need a local web server with PHP support.
- MAMP is a good option Download MAMP
- Clone this repo into your local server webroot.
- Launch a terminal app and change to the newly cloned folder
- Download dependencies with Composer using the folloing comman
To obtain your API keys, follow these steps and create a Xero app
- Create a free Xero user account (if you don't have one)

.env and copy and paste your clientId, clientSecret and redirectUri These .env variables will be read by authorization.php, callback.php, get.php.
CLIENT_ID = "YOUR-CLIENT-ID" CLIENT_SECRET = "YOUR-CLIENT-SECRET" REDIRECT_URI = "http://localhost:8888/xero-php-oauth2-app/callback.php"
Sample PHP code from authorization.php
// This library will read variable from the .env file. $dotenv = Dotenv\Dotenv::createImmutable(__DIR__); $dotenv->load(); $clientId = getenv('CLIENT_ID'); $clientSecret = getenv('CLIENT_SECRET'); $redirectUri = getenv('REDIRECT_URI'); $provider = new \League\OAuth2\Client\Provider\GenericProvider([ 'clientId' => $clientId, 'clientSecret' => $clientSecret, 'redirectUri' => $redirectUri, 'urlAuthorize' => 'https://login.xero.com/identity/connect/authorize', 'urlAccessToken' => 'https://identity.xero.com/connect/token', 'urlResourceOwnerDetails' => 'https://api.xero.com/api.xro/2.0/Organisation' ]);
docker-compose up in the root directory of this repository to launch a local server.
The server will be published to port
8080 by default:
The redirect URL will be
http://localhost:8080/callback.php, which must be
set in the configuration of this demo application and within your Xero app.
The local port can be changed through the
APP_HTTP_PORT variable in the
environment or set in
You may want to do this if port
