SitePoint PHP Blog:
Using Guzzle with Twitter via Oauth
July 31, 2014 @ 10:54:01

Continuing on with his series about using the Guzzle PHP HTTP library, Miguel Ibarra Romero is back with this new post showing how to connect your PHP application, via Guzzle, to the Twitter OAuth protected service.

In a previous article, we found out about Guzzle and how it can aid us in the task of establishing communication with third party APIs over HTTP. We used it to get the output of a random number generator and for basic interaction with Github's API. [...] While interacting with Github's API we discovered that it supports basic authentication (sending plain username/password). But what if the API we want to use just offers OAUTH authentication?

He shows how to use Guzzle's own OAuth subscriber to make a basic connection to the API. He walks you through the installation of the subscriber (via Composer) and an example of its use. He explains each part of the code, giving a little background on where it fits into the OAuth request and where to put your API secret and key to make the connection work. Finally, he includes the code to handle the callback once the OAuth request is successful, grabbing the token data and adding it to the user session.
