README I've written this class to automate the process of authenticating and querying the Twitter APIs. There are three steps to follow, the first is up to you: - create a client on Twitter Dev site, just follow the instructions here: The second and third steps are accomplished by my class and are: - make a POST request to Twitter Oauth service in order to retrieve an access token; the endpoint is - make a GET request to Twitter API using the access token; you can use any valid endpoint, I'm using[TWITTER_USERNAME] That GET request, if correct, returns the json with the feed of the Twitter user passed through screen_name GET variable. EXAMPLE After creating a client on Twitter Dev site, you have to use consumer_key and consumer_key_secret provided by the client: $consumer_key = "CONSUMER_KEY"; $consumer_key_secret = "CONSUMER_KEY_SECRET"; Then create an instance of GetTwitterFeed; the first parameter is the endpoint: $retrieveUrl = "[TWITTER_USERNAME]"; The second and third parameters are consumer_key and consumer_key_secret $objTwitter = new GetTwitterFeed($retrieveUrl, $consumer_key, $consumer_key_secret); If you want to print the raw json, remember to declare correct headers: header('Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *'); header('Content-Type: application/json'); echo $objTwitter->getJsonFeed();
