Publish with PHP

Use the following code snippet to publish a message on a WebSocket channel with PHP.

$curl = curl_init();

$post_fields = [
    "key" => "oCdCMcMPQpbvNjUIzqtvF1d2X2okWpDQj4AwARJuAgtjhzKxVEjQU6IdCjwm", //Demo key,  get yours at https://piesocket.com
    "secret" => "d8129f82f8dd71910aa4a7efa30a7297", //Demo secret, get yours at https://piesocket.com
    "channelId" => 1,
    "message" => ["text" => "Hello world!"]
];
curl_setopt_array($curl, array(
  CURLOPT_URL => "https://www.piesocket.com/api/publish",
  CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER => true,
  CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST => "POST",
  CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS => json_encode($post_fields),
  CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER => array(
    "Content-Type: application/json"
  ),
));

$response = curl_exec($curl);
print_r($response)

This sends a JSON message to channel 1, to send a string, replace "message" => ["text" => "Hello world!"] with "message" => "Hello world!"

Please note that this example uses a demo key and secret which is public. The demo key is only for quick testing purpose and you should not use this in your application.
