Laravel Forge PHP SDK

Laravel Forge announced it’s first official API back in February and we have seen a lot of interesting uses like the F-Bar Mac app. Today, Mohamed Said released a PHP SDK for the API that covers all the features.

Here is an example of creating a new server with this SDK:

$server = $forge->createServer([
    "provider"=> "ocean2",
    "credential_id"=> 1,
    "name"=> "test-via-api",
    "size"=> "512MB",
    "database"=> "test123",
    "php_version"=> "php71",
    "region"=> "ams2"
]);

Of course, it also allows you to do much more and it works with the familiar Laravel expressive syntax. As an example take a look at more of the server commands available:

$server->update(array $data)
$server->delete()
$server->revokeAccess()
$server->reconnect()
$server->reactivate()
$server->rebootMysql()
$server->stopMysql()
$server->rebootPostgres()
$server->stopPostgres()
$server->rebootNginx()
$server->stopNginx()
$server->installBlackfire(array $data)
$server->removeBlackfire()
$server->installPapertrail(array $data)
$server->removePapertrail()

The SDK is freely available under the MIT license and it’s available on Github. The readme includes plenty of examples and explanation for working with the SDK.
