The PHP SDK for OAuth.io provides a web-based PHP backend platform that simplifies the authentication of API calls to the more than 100 providers affiliated to the OAuth.io API. Developers avoid the hustles of direct access of APIs from the front-end by simply making API requests from the backend. The consumption of this SDK requires a minimum of version 0.3.2.
