NXT PHP Client Library


Here is my PHP client library for NXT on Github.

I use it in my projects, I extend the CNxtApi class which contains the basics to query the NXT API to devellop more specific function. I cleaned it such it is always a good base to start with.

Making a request to your node in PHP then goes like this:

--- Code: ---$oApp = new CNxt;
$oApp->aInput = array(
                'message'=>'Here is your payment',
$oResp = $oApp->getResponse();

--- End code ---

It also comes with a class and bootstrap script to make a command line tool (on linux only after seting up an alias in .bash_aliases) that simplify updates, network checking and some api queries.
It can also serves as a good example on how to play with NXT and PHP.

Here is the output for

--- Quote ---USE: nxt {commands} (optional: -json, -ssh)


The command line utility can be used for any NXT API Request,
{command} is equivalent to the http query string of the API but
value pair are separted by *space* instead of *&*

Examples :

nxt requestType=getBlockchainTransactions account=NXT-THLJ-CYAL-JQST-6FNS5

OPTIONAL parameters

 (default) - returns the CURL request and readable output of objects (good to be used on the command line)
 -json : only returns the json string (good to be used by programs).
 -ssh : a usefull workaround for nodes that do not have https set up, the distant node must have this library installed.
        Then the node is queried via ssh and then makes it's final request to the NXT server with with http://localhost:7876


Below are custom commands that are defined in commands/boostrap
The options -json and -ssh described above are also available

nxt getBalance NXT-39LJ-V67N-TJB9-EHUKA -json

Proud to be on that list!
I just discovered the Javascript NXTDevKit I think it's going to help me.
Communication matters !  :)
