Zendesk PHP Client Library / SDK

Zendesk provides a powerful API to communicate with its hosted applications. It uses a robust and clean REST-based architecture which makes it easier to deploy on any platform be it Java, .Net or PHP. Since we are dealing with PHP here, we will only think about its interations with PHP.
Even though the RESTful calls make the work strightforward and standardized, it still is a lot of work setting up the CURL and even if you have it setup there are still encoding errors to deal with.This is the type of scenario which makes people as lazy as myself think about an easier approach i.e. an API wrapper.
But here is the good news, folks at Zendesk have thought about that too. They have developed an API wrapper for PHP. All you have to do is get this code from GitHub and run composer install or add the following in your own composer file:

Now, this SDK has all the API methods mapped in it but here is the catch, it does NOT have any official documentation. But they have provided some basic examples at their github page which is a good place to start.
