System requirements

  • PHP 5.4 or above,
  • PHP session,
  • Curl extension (However it can be substituted with other non Curl clients such as Guzzle)


To install Hybridauth, we recommend Composer — the now defacto dependency manager for PHP. Otherwise you may always use the latest release available at Github and install it manually.

Using Composer

If Composer is not installed on your system yet, you may go ahead and install it using this command line:

$ curl -sS | php

Next, add the following require entry to the composer.json file in the root of your project.

    "require" : {
        "hybridauth/hybridauth" : "~3.0"

Finally, instruct Composer to install Hybridauth and its dependencies:

$ php composer.phar install

Composer will then download the latest version of Hybridauth Library and place it inside the /vendor/ directory.

Manual Installation

In case you can’t/don’t want to use Composer, or if you never heard of it, you can still include Hybridauth in you application the traditional way by downloading the library archive and unzipping it into your project’s folder.

The required steps are typically the following:

  1. Download the latest available release at
  2. Next, simply unzip the archive file to your project’s directory.


Hybridauth 3 is coded in compliance with PSR-4 which means it relies heavily on namespaces so that class files can be loaded automatically.

Using Composer

In case you’re using Composer, include its autoloader vendor/autoload.php at the top of your script. That autoloader script is generated by Composer for your project and it should be able to locate Hybridauth source code and auto-load all the required classes.

//Include Composer's autoloader
include 'vendor/autoload.php';

//Import Hybridauth's namespace
use Hybridauth\Hybridauth; 

//Now we may proceed and instantiate Hybridauth's classes
$instance = new Hybridauth([ /* ... */ ]); 

Manual Installation

Alternatively, and in case you opted to install Hybridauth manually, the library comes bundled with a basic autoloader which can be found inside its source folder src/autoload.php and it should function in a similar way to Composer’s.

//Include Hybridauth's basic autoloader
include 'hybridauth/src/autoload.php';

//Import Hybridauth's namespace
use Hybridauth\Hybridauth; 

//And so on
