GENDER API PHP-LEGACY

First install our library with composer:

$ composer require gender-api/client
use GenderApi\Client as GenderApiClient;

try {
    $apiClient = new GenderApiClient('insert your API key');

    // Query a single name
    $lookup = $apiClient->getByFirstName('elisabeth');
    if ($lookup->genderFound()) {
        echo $lookup->getGender();      // female
    }

    // Query a full name and improve the result by providing a country code
    $lookup = $apiClient->getByFirstNameAndLastNameAndCountry('Thomas Johnson', 'US');
    if ($lookup->genderFound()) {
        echo $lookup->getGender();      // male
        echo $lookup->getFirstName();   // Thomas
        echo $lookup->getLastName();    // Johnson
    }

} catch (GenderApi\Exception $e) {
    // Name lookup failed due to a network error or insufficient requests
    // left. See https://gender-api.com/en/api-docs/error-codes
    echo 'Exception: ' . $e->getMessage();
}

function getGender($firstname) {
    $myKey = 'insert your server key here';
    $data = json_decode(file_get_contents(
        'https://gender-api.com/get?key=' . $myKey .
        '&name=' . urlencode($firstname)));
    return $data->gender;
}

echo getGender('markus'); //Output: male

First install our library with npm:

const genderApiClient = new GenderApiClient("your API key");

try {
    genderApiClient.getByFirstName('theresa', (response: ResultSingleName) => {
      console.log(response.gender); //female
      console.log(response.accuracy); //98
    });
  
    genderApiClient.getByFirstNameAndCountry('john', 'US', (response: ResultSingleName) => {
      console.log(response.gender); //male
      console.log(response.accuracy); //99
    });
