Installation

Requirements

  • Tmdb works with PHP 7.1 and higher
  • TheMovieDatabase API key

Composer

Install the lastest version with

$ composer require vfalies/tmdb

Basic Usage

<?php

require 'vendor/autoload.php';

use VfacTmdb\Factory;
use VfacTmdb\Search;
use VfacTmdb\Item;

// Initialize Wrapper
$tmdb = Factory::create()->getTmdb('your_api_key');

// Search a movie
$search    = new Search($tmdb);
$responses = $search->movie('star wars');

// Get all results
foreach ($responses as $response)
{
    echo $response->getTitle();
}

// Get movie information
$item  = new Item($tmdb);
$infos = $item->getMovie(11, array('language' => 'fr-FR'));

echo $infos->getTitle();

Usage

Getting a TMDB instance

TMDB is the main class of the library. It has two dependencies :

Using the Factory

It is the easiest way to load TMDB

<?php
require 'vendor/autoload.php';

use VfacTmdb\Factory;

$tmdb = Factory::create()->getTmdb('your_api_key');

In a Slim application

If your application is built with Slim, you can add TMDB in your dependencies and inject Slim's Monolog instance into it. Just add this in dependencies.php

$container['tmdb'] = function ($c) {
    $api_key = $c->get('settings')['tmdb']['api_key'];
    $tmdb = new \vfalies\tmdb\Tmdb($api_key, $c->logger);
}

In this example, API key is declared in settings.php

return [
    'settings' = [
        'tmdb' = [
            'api_key' = 'your_api_key';
        ]
    ]
];

Do it yourself

Convenient if you need too inject your own dependencies. In the example below, we inject Monolog configured to write logs on standards output.

<?php
require 'vendor/autoload.php';

use VfacTmdb\Tmdb;
use Monolog\Logger;
use Monolog\Handler\StreamHandler;

$logger = new Logger('default', [new StreamHandler('php://stdout')])

$tmdb = Tmdb('your_api_key', $logger);

$title  = $movies->current()->getTitle();
Object types Methods Generator of

Authentication

The connection to your account is in 3 steps:

  • Getting a request token
  • Connection to TMDb website
  • Create a session

Getting a request token

$tmdb = Factory::create()->getTmdb('your_api_key');

$Auth = new Auth($tmdb);
echo $Auth->getRequestToken();

Connect to TMDb website

$tmdb = Factory::create()->getTmdb('your_api_key');

$Auth = new Auth($tmdb);
$Auth->connect($_POST['request_token']);

This call redirect the page to TMDb website login page for identification and authorisations. By default, after the connection, the user stay on TMDb website. To redirect to your website after the connection, use the following code:

$tmdb = Factory::create()->getTmdb('your_api_key');

$Auth = new Auth($tmdb);
$Auth->connect($_POST['request_token'], 'http://your_url');

Create a session

To use all account methods, we must use a valid session.

$tmdb = Factory::create()->getTmdb('62dfe9839b8937e595e325a4144702ad');

$Auth = new Auth($tmdb);
echo $Auth->createSession($_POST['request_token']);

Media Helper

All media informations delivered by the library are relative pathfile.

To get a valid media URL, use the Media class to generate the URL and check the media size

$media = new Media($tmdb);
$url = $media->getPosterUrl('/AbJBXaVPrdXROwb8KmgWUPU2XJX.jpg');

The following type of media are supported :

  • Backdrop
  • Poster
  • Logo
  • Profile
  • Still

Unit Testing

You can run the unit test suites using the following command in the library's source directory:

$ make test
