PHP Driver

Connect your PHP applications to Cloud CMS

Current version: 1.1.2. Released Jan 4, 2022

The Cloud CMS PHP driver is a client library used to facilitate connections to the Cloud CMS API. The driver handles OAuth authentication and token management, HTTPS calls, and provides convenient methods and classes with which to perform content operations. It works against Cloud CMS instances on our SaaS platform as well as on-premise installations.


To install, run:

composer require cloudcms/cloudcms


Below are some examples of how you might use this driver:

use CloudCMS\CloudCMS;

// Load configuration from gitana.json file
$config_string = file_get_contents("gitana.json");
$config = json_decode($config_string, true);

// Connect to CloudCMS
$client = new CloudCMS();
$platform = $client->connect($config);

// List Repositories
$repositories => $platform->listRepositories();

// Read Repository
$repository = $platform->readRepository("");

// List Branches
$branches = $repository->listBranches();

// Read Branch
$branch = $repository->readBranch("");

// Read Node
$node = $branch->readNode("");

// Create Node
$obj = array(
    "title" => "Twelfth Night",
    "description" => "An old play"
$newNode = $branch->createNode($obj);

// Query Nodes
$query = array(
    "_type" => "store:book"
$pagination = array(
    "limit" => 2
$queriedNodes = $branch->queryNodes($query, $pagination);

// Find Nodes
$find = array(
    "search" => "Shakespeare",
    "query" => array(
        "_type" => "store:book"
$foundNodes = $branch->findNodes($find);


The PHP driver is a useful library that provides access to the capabilities of Cloud CMS from a programmatic perspective. It is therefore important to first familiarize yourself with the concepts presented in the Cloud CMS Documentation.
