The goal of Blast application is to deliver a framework agnostic application life-cycle having regard on modern standards.

PSR-0, PSR-1, PSR-2, PSR-3, PSR-4, PSR-7, PSR-11 (Container-interop) are supported standards.


Via Composer

$ composer require blast/application


Lets build our first base application.

The foundation


use Blast\Application\Kernel\Foundation as Application

$application = new Application();


Our application foundation has been set, now we are able to set our config.

Application configuration is an Array and just need to passed to our config.

We could pass directly:


  'name' => 'base application'

Or receive config data from anywhere


//should return an array!
$config = require_once __DIR__ . '/config.php';

You are free to choose how to pass configuration. You could also use packages like


Modern application needs to decouple complexity. That means we want to manage services and inject them automatically. Blast application is following the standard of container-interop/container-interop.

We use league/container for example.


use League\Container;

$application->setContainer(new Container());

Here is an list of container-interop implementations.


Our application is dispatching an added strategy with an PSR-7 request and response. Within this strategy you could define your own logic.

For example we use wellrested/wellrested for our PSR-7 implementation.


use WellRESTed\Message\Response;
use WellRESTed\Message\ServerRequest;
use Acme\Strategy;

$application->setStrategy(new Strategy);
$application->dispatch(ServerRequest::getServerRequest(), new Response);

Their are more PSR-7 compatible packages available on packagist or the following:

  • symfony/http-foundation with symfony/psr-http-message-bridge
