DMS Meetup.com API Client Build Status

This is a client for the Meetup.com API powered by the Guzzle Project.


The library is available through Composer, so its easy to get it. Just Run this:

composer require dms/meetup-api-client


  • All documented and non-deprecated methods from:
    • Meetup API v3
    • Meetup API v2
    • Legacy v1, except methods tagged as deprecated
  • Key authentication
  • OAuth 1.0 Authentication
  • OAuth 2.0 Authentication
  • POST, GET and DELETE methods


To use the API Client simply instantiate the preferred client (key auth or OAuth), giving it the correct parameters


// Key Authentication
$client = MeetupKeyAuthClient::factory(array('key' => 'my-meetup-key'));

// OAuth Authentication
$config = array(
    'consumer_key'    => 'consumer-key',
    'consumer_secret' => '*****',
    'token'           => '*****',
    'token_secret'    => '*****',
$client = MeetupOAuthClient::factory($config);

// OAuth2 Authentication
$config = array(
    'access_token'    => 'access_token',
$client = MeetupOAuth2Client::factory($config);

Invoke Commands using our __call method (auto-complete phpDocs are included)


$client = MeetupKeyAuthClient::factory(array('key' => 'my-meetup-key'));

// Use our __call method (auto-complete provided)
$response = $client->getRsvps(array('event_id' => 'the-event-id'));

foreach ($response as $responseItem) {
    echo $responseItem['member']['name'] . PHP_EOL;

Or Use the getCommand method:


$client = MeetupKeyAuthClient::factory(array('key' => 'my-meetup-key'));

//Retrieve the Command from Guzzle
$command = $client->getCommand('GetRsvps', array('event_id' => 'the-event-id'));

$response = $command->execute();

foreach ($response as $responseItem) {
    echo $responseItem['member']['name'] . PHP_EOL;

For a list of all the available commands, see the Meetup API documentation on ReadTheDocs


This wrapper implements two types of custom responses to facilitate the usage of the results directly.

Response for Collection

When querying for collections the client wraps the result in a MultiResultResponse. This response implements a Iterator allowing you to directly iterate over the results, while still giving you access to all response data, as well as the metadata returned by the API using the getMetaData() method.


$rsvps = $client->getRsvps(array('event_id' => 'the-event-id'));

foreach ($rsvps as $rsvp) {
    echo $rsvp['member']['name'] . PHP_EOL;

$metadata = $response->getMetaData();
echo "Debug Url:" . $metadata['url'];

Response for Single Resource

When getting information of a single resource the client will wrap that in a SingleResultResponse. This response gives you direct array access to results, but retains response data so you can still access it.


$rsvp = $client->getRsvp(array('id' => 'rsvp-id'));

echo "RSVP? " . $rsvp['response'];

echo "StatusCode: " . $rsvp->getStatusCode();

Rate Limiting

A rate limiter is included in this client, its enabled by default, but can be disabled as described below. It uses a pre-defined factor (50% by default) to determine when it should start throttling the calls, by using a sleep slowdown. Operations are based on the X-RateLimit-* headers, to determine remaining limits and reset times.

Configuring Rate Limit Kick-in Factor

To configure how late the back algorithm kicks in, you can set a custom rate factor:


$client = MeetupKeyAuthClient::factory(array(
    'key' => 'my-meetup-key',
    'rate_limit_factor' => 0.75

Disabling Rate Limiting

If you do not wish to use Rate Limiting and deal with errors sent by the API yourself, use the config below.


$client = MeetupKeyAuthClient::factory(array(
    'key' => 'my-meetup-key',
    'disable_rate_limiting' => true


The API client is available under an MIT License.
