PHP Function
<?php
function call_api($method, $url, $data = false) {

        $access_token = get_access_token();

        $ch       = curl_init();

        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL            , $url);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER         , false);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER     , [
                'Content-Type: application/json',
                'Authorization: Bearer ' . $access_token
        ]);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER ,  false              );

        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, $method);

        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER ,  true               );
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS     ,  json_encode($data) );

        $result = curl_exec($ch);
        $err    = curl_error($ch);

        if ($err) { echo "cURL Error #:" . $err;          }
        else      { $json         = json_decode($result); }

        curl_close($ch);

        return $result;
}

If you get this error (Laravel):

  • Call to undefined function App\Http\Controllers\curl_init()

You can fix this by running this command to instal cURL:

  • sudo apt install php7.0-curl

Replace 7.0 with your version of PHP. You can check this with:

  • php -v

The function get_access_token() is from this thread:
