Installation

This page contains information about installing the Google APIs Client Library for PHP.

Requirements

  • PHP version 5.4 or greater.

Obtaining the client library

There are two options for obtaining the files for the client library.

Using Composer

You can install the library by adding it as a dependency to your composer.json.

"require": {
  "google/apiclient": "^2.0"
}

Downloading from GitHub

The library is available on GitHub. Follow the instructions in the README to download the package locally.

What to do with the files

After obtaining the files, include the autloader. If you used Composer, your require statement will look like this:

require_once '/path/to/your-project/vendor/autoload.php';
If you downloaded the package separately, your require statement will look like this:
require_once '/path/to/google-api-php-client/vendor/autoload.php';
