Tradenity Blog

On behalf of the PHP team, I ‘m happy to announce the initial release of the Tradenity PHP SDK. The SDK Ruby API was carefully designed to make accessing the Tradenity REST API a seamless experience to PHP programmers. It was designed to provide object oriented interface hiding all the HTTP request/response details of the REST API.

Prerequisites

To use the Tradenity SDK, you must have:

  • Working PHP development environment (currently PHP >= 5.3 is supported).
  • Active account in Tradenity

For web development, We provide a framework extensions library for both Laravel and Symfony:

Installation

You can install the PHP SDK using the standard composer tool.

composer install tradenity/php-sdk

Now install your framework specific extension library:

composer install tradenity/laravel-ext

composer install tradenity/symfony-ext

Setup your credentials

First of all, you have to get API keys for your store, you can find it in your store Edit page. To get there navigate to the stores list page, click on the Edit button next to your store name, scroll down till you find the API Keys section.

Initialize the library

With the API key in hand, you can initialize the Tradenity client. Tradenity client needs the API key and an instance of AuthTokenHolder which is an object that makes Tradenity session integrates with the web framework’s session mechanism. The SDK provide implementation for Flask and Django. It’s easy to implement your own for other frameworks, It is a simple 3 method interface.

<?php

require 'tradenity'

// Initialise the library with your store api key and your framework 's SessionIdAccessor:

TradenityClient::$key = 'sk_1234567';

//Add the framework dependent `SessionIdAccessor` (check documentation for details):

TradenityClient::$sessionIdAccessor = .... ;

Make sure to replace the api keys with the ones for your store, otherwise you will get authentication error

Make your First call

The Tradenity SDK is organized into a group of model entitiy classes that corresponds to the REST API’s resources, each encapsulate the operation for a specific entity model, for example to perform operations related to the Brand resource you can use the corresponding Tradenity\SDK\Entities\Brand class.

Now, just call any method in your code.

<?php

$brand = Brand::findById("1243-9786786-jhgjtu-789s6i");
