How to send checkin via api to swarm

Hi how can i send checkin to swarm via swarm api from external php application. Is there a way to send checkin via api calling as like to posting post to facebook.

Answer

@Gokigooooks already said important things. And URL sample:

https://api.foursquare.com/v2/checkins/add?
venueId=IHR8THISVNU& // The venue where the user is checking in
broadcast=public,facebook& // POST TO FACEBOOK
ll=33.7,44.2& // User location
alt=44.038330& // User altitude (option)
oauth_token=(OAUTH_TOKEN)& // User aouth token (need login)
v=20150929 // api version

EDIT

After checkin, Checkin id will be returned. (e.g. IHR8THISVNU)

Then you need to access the following URL

https://api.foursquare.com/v2/photos/add?
checkinId =IHR8THISVNU& // the ID of a checkin owned by the user
broadcast=facebook& // POST TO FACEBOOK
public=1& // allows for making the photo public and viewable at the venue (option)
oauth_token=(OAUTH_TOKEN)& // User aouth token (need login)
v=20150929 // api version

In addition, the image file data must be posted. The image data is sent as the POST message body on the HTTP request.
