Download the PHP package pauly4it/laraturk without Composer

On this page you can find all versions of the php package pauly4it/laraturk. It is possible to download/install these versions without Composer. Possible dependencies are resolved automatically.


After the download, you have to make one include require_once('vendor/autoload.php');. After that you have to import the classes with use statements.

If you use only one package a project is not needed. But if you use more then one package, without a project it is not possible to import the classes with use statements.

In general, it is recommended to use always a project to download your libraries. In an application normally there is more than one library needed.
Some PHP packages are not free to download and because of that hosted in private repositories. In this case some credentials are needed to access such packages. Please use the auth.json textarea to insert credentials, if a package is coming from a private repository. You can look here for more information.

  • Some hosting areas are not accessible by a terminal or SSH. Then it is not possible to use Composer.
  • To use Composer is sometimes complicated. Especially for beginners.
  • Composer needs much resources. Sometimes they are not available on a simple webspace.
  • If you are using private repositories you don't need to share your credentials. You can set up everything on our site and then you provide a simple download link to your team member.
  • Simplify your Composer build process. Use our own command line tool to download the vendor folder as binary. This makes your build process faster and you don't need to expose your credentials for private repositories.
Please rate this library. Is it a good library?

Mechanical Turk Sandbox Websites:

Amazon Mechanical Turk Documentation:


Install by adding laraturk to your composer.json file:

require : {
    "pauly4it/laraturk": "dev-master"

or with a composer command:

composer require "pauly4it/laraturk": "dev-master"

After installation, add the provider to your config/app.php providers:

For Laravel 5.0:


For Laravel 5.1+:


and the facade to config/app.php aliases:

For Laravel 5.0:

    'LaraTurk' => 'Pauly4it\LaraTurk\Facades\LaraTurk',

For Laravel 5.1+:

    'LaraTurk' => 'Pauly4it\LaraTurk\Facades\LaraTurk::class',

Configuring LaraTurk

First publish the config file:

php artisan vendor:publish

This will create a laraturk.php config file. There you can define default values of parameters used in all functions.

If you will only be creating one type of HIT, you should specify all the default values in the config file.

You will also need to set two environment variables which the laraturk.php config file uses: AWS_ROOT_ACCESS_KEY_ID and AWS_ROOT_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY. If these are not set and you try to use LaraTurk, LaraTurk will throw a LaraTurkException.


For all functions (except getAccountBalance), you will pass the function an array of paramaters. If you have defaults set in the config file, then the parameters you pass will override the defaults (for the keys you assign). For most of the implemented functions, refer to AWS documentation for required and optional parameters and the format of those parameters. A few parameters require different formats in LaraTurk compared to official documentation. Please see the "Special Parameter Formats" section below for those.

You must signup on the Mechanical Turk Requester site using your AWS root account email. If you plan on using the Mechanical Turk sandbox (highly recommended), you must also create a separate sandbox Requester account using your AWS root account email.


All API calls to Amazon Mechanical Turk return an XML response. LaraTurk converts the XML to an array. Thus, for all LaraTurk calls, the returned object will be an array.

For example, the Mechanical Turk API documentation shows the following XML as a response for creating a HIT:

The returned array from LaraTurk will then look like so:


Here are a couple examples of usage:

Create HIT with HITLayoutID and HITTypeID

This assumes a HIT Layout has been created on the Requester site and a HIT Type has been registered.

The $response object is in the form of:


The API response is only a true/false response, so if a LaraTurkException is not thrown, then the request succeeded.

The $response object is in the form of:

Special Parameter Formats


Set the Reward parameter like so:

Layout Parameters

Set the HITLayoutParameter parameter like so:

These correspond to the parameters you defined in your HIT Layout template.

Qualification Requirements

Set the QualificationRequirement parameter like so:

This qualification would require the worker to be located in the US or Canada, have completed at least 1000 HITs, and have at least a 98% assignment approval percentage to be able to accept your HIT.


Set the Notification parameter like so:

Currently implemented features and associated functions





Requester Account



If a required parameter is not found in the parameters passed or if the API call returns an error for any reason, LaraTurk will throw a LaraTurkException. This exception works just like the base Exception class in Laravel, but also includes an additional getErrors() function that will return the error array returned from the API call.

For example, if the API call returns an error because the AWS credentials were invalid and you catch the exception:

Calling $e->getMessage() would return:

Calling $e->getErrors() would return:
