A Google API v3 wrapper for Laravel 4

This package enables a Laravel flavoured way to manage Google services through its API interface (v3)


Add the required package to your composer.json file

    "require": {
		"redbaron76/googlavel": "1.0"

Set minimum-stability to 'dev'

In order to avoid Composer's possible conflicts, just set your composer.json 'minimum-stability' to 'dev'

    "minimum-stability": "dev"

...then just run composer update

Laravel implementation

This package includes a ServiceProvider that will give access to a helpful Googlavel facade. Set the GooglavelServiceProvider reference in your /app/config/app.php like this:

// app/config/app.php

'providers' => array(

Export and edit the configuration file

Before using this package, you will need to activate a profile from Google developer and get your personal code from the Google Developers Console in order to obtain access and use their services through API calls.

Google Developers Console

Once obtained Client ID and Client Secret strings for web application from the Google Developers Console and set a valid Redirect URI callback, export the package config file:

php artisan config:publish redbaron76/googlavel

...and put them to the oauth2 parameters into the config file

// app/config/packages/redbaron76/googlavel/config.php

return array(

    // OAuth2 Setting, you can get these keys in Google Developers Console
    'oauth2_client_id'      => '< YOUR CLIENT ID >',
    'oauth2_client_secret'  => '< YOUR CLIENT SECRET >',
    'oauth2_redirect_uri'   => 'http://localhost:8081/',   // Change it according to your needs


Set also the correct scope for the services you will use in your application (and remember to activate related APIs inside the Google Developers Console => APIS & AUTH => APIs). Refer to Google API wiki for any help.

Using the Googlavel facade

Once everything set correctly, you'll gain access to the Googlavel facade in a pure Laravel style.

Need to use the Google Calendar service?

// routes.php

Route::get('/', function()
	if ( Input::has('code') )
		$code = Input::get('code');
		// authenticate with Google API
		if ( Googlavel::authenticate($code) )
			return Redirect::to('/protected');
	// get auth url
	$url = Googlavel::authUrl();
	return link_to($url, 'Login with Google!');

Route::get('/logout', function()
	// perform a logout with redirect
	return Googlavel::logout('/');

Route::get('/protected', function()
	// Get the google service (related scope must be set)
	$service = Googlavel::getService('Calendar');
	// invoke API call
	$calendarList = $service->calendarList->listCalendarList();

	foreach ( $calendarList as $calendar )
		echo "{$calendar->summary} <br>";

	return link_to('/logout', 'Logout');
