Error handler that utilizes peel exceptions to standardize responses.

Build Status Code Climate Test Coverage


It's recommended that you use Composer to install crash-pad.

$ composer require avalanche-development/crash-pad

crash-pad requires PHP 5.6 or newer.


This handler works best with peel. It can work without, but without the HttpErrorInterface exceptions all of the responses are going to default as 500 Server Errors.

Depending on the framework you're using, this can be hooked up in a few different ways. In Slim you'd attach it to the Slim\Container. I'm going to be biased and show this in Talus.

$talus = new Talus([...]);
$talus->setErrorHandler(new AvalancheDevelopment\CrashPad\ErrorHandler);

This will listen for exceptions that jump out of the call stack and return appropriate responses. For example, if you have some middleware like so...

function someMiddleware($request, $response, $next) {
    $body = (string) $request->getBody();
    $body = json_decode($value);
    if (json_last_error() !== JSON_ERROR_NONE) {
        throw new AvalancheDevelopment\Peel\HttpError\BadRequest('Invalid JSON');
    // etc

The error handler will detect the AvalancheDevelopment\Peel\HttpErrorInterface exception and return a response like so...

  "statusCode": 400,
  "error": "Bad Request",
  "message": "Invalid JSON"

All responses will include these three fields, plus the appropriate headers. Any exceptions that do not implement the HttpErrorEnterface will respond the default 500.


This library is in active development. Some of the error responses may include metadata moving forward.


To execute the test suite, you'll need phpunit (and to install package with dev dependencies).

$ phpunit
