A php interface for interacting with the Ethereum blockchain and ecosystem.

Install

Set minimum stability to dev

"minimum-stability": "dev"

Then

composer require sc0vu/web3.php dev-master

Or you can add this line in composer.json

"sc0vu/web3.php": "dev-master"

Usage

New instance

use Web3\Web3;

$web3 = new Web3('http://localhost:8545');

Using provider

use Web3\Web3;
use Web3\Providers\HttpProvider;
use Web3\RequestManagers\HttpRequestManager;

$web3 = new Web3(new HttpProvider(new HttpRequestManager('http://localhost:8545')));

// timeout
$web3 = new Web3(new HttpProvider(new HttpRequestManager('http://localhost:8545', 0.1)));

You can use callback to each rpc call:

$web3->clientVersion(function ($err, $version) {
    if ($err !== null) {
        // do something
        return;
    }
    if (isset($version)) {
        echo 'Client version: ' . $version;
    }
});

Eth

use Web3\Web3;

$web3 = new Web3('http://localhost:8545');
$eth = $web3->eth;

Or

use Web3\Eth;

$eth = new Eth('http://localhost:8545');

Net

use Web3\Web3;

$web3 = new Web3('http://localhost:8545');
$net = $web3->net;

Or

use Web3\Net;

$net = new Net('http://localhost:8545');

Batch

web3

$web3->batch(true);
$web3->clientVersion();
$web3->hash('0x1234');
$web3->execute(function ($err, $data) {
    if ($err !== null) {
        // do something
        // it may throw exception or array of exception depends on error type
        // connection error: throw exception
        // json rpc error: array of exception
        return;
    }
    // do something
});

eth

$eth->batch(true);
$eth->protocolVersion();
$eth->syncing();

$eth->provider->execute(function ($err, $data) {
    if ($err !== null) {
        // do something
        return;
    }
    // do something
});

net

$net->batch(true);
$net->version();
$net->listening();

$net->provider->execute(function ($err, $data) {
    if ($err !== null) {
        // do something
        return;
    }
    // do something
});

personal

$personal->batch(true);
$personal->listAccounts();
$personal->newAccount('123456');

$personal->provider->execute(function ($err, $data) {
    if ($err !== null) {
        // do something
        return;
    }
    // do something
});

Contract

use Web3\Contract;

$contract = new Contract('http://localhost:8545', $abi);

// deploy contract
$contract->bytecode($bytecode)->new($params, $callback);

// call contract function
$contract->at($contractAddress)->call($functionName, $params, $callback);

// change function state
$contract->at($contractAddress)->send($functionName, $params, $callback);

// estimate deploy contract gas
$contract->bytecode($bytecode)->estimateGas($params, $callback);

// estimate function gas
$contract->at($contractAddress)->estimateGas($functionName, $params, $callback);

// get constructor data
$constructorData = $contract->bytecode($bytecode)->getData($params);

// get function data
$functionData = $contract->at($contractAddress)->getData($functionName, $params);

Assign value to outside scope(from callback scope to outside scope)

Due to callback is not like javascript callback, if we need to assign value to outside scope, we need to assign reference to callback.

$newAccount = '';

$web3->personal->newAccount('123456', function ($err, $account) use (&$newAccount) {
    if ($err !== null) {
        echo 'Error: ' . $err->getMessage();
        return;
    }
    $newAccount = $account;
    echo 'New account: ' . $account . PHP_EOL;
});

Examples

To run examples, you need to run ethereum blockchain local (testrpc).

If you are using docker as development machain, you can try ethdock to run local ethereum blockchain, just simply run docker-compose up -d testrpc and expose the 8545 port.

Develop

Local php cli installed

  1. Clone the repo and install packages.
git clone https://github.com/sc0Vu/web3.php.git && cd web3.php && composer install
  1. Run test script.
vendor/bin/phpunit

Docker container

  1. Clone the repo and run docker container.
git clone https://github.com/sc0Vu/web3.php.git
  1. Copy web3.php to web3.php/docker/app directory and start container.
cp files docker/app && docker-compose up -d php ganache
  1. Enter php container and install packages.
docker-compose exec php ash
  1. Change testHost in TestCase.php
/**
 * testHost
 * 
 * @var string
 */
protected $testHost = 'http://ganache:8545';
  1. Run test script
vendor/bin/phpunit
Install packages

Enter container first

docker-compose exec php ash
  1. gmp
apk add gmp-dev
docker-php-ext-install gmp
  1. bcmath
docker-php-ext-install bcmath
Remove extension

Move the extension config from /usr/local/etc/php/conf.d/

mv /usr/local/etc/php/conf.d/extension-config-name to/directory

API

Todo.
