Chadicus\Slim\OAuth2\Routes requires PHP 5.6 (or later).


To add the library as a local, per-project dependency use Composer! Simply add a dependency on chadicus/slim-oauth2-routes to your project's composer.json file such as:

With a checkout of the code get Composer in your PATH and run:

./composer install

A Note on Using Views

The authorize and receive-code route require view objects. The given view object must implement a render method such as the one found in slim/twig-view and slim/php-view. It would be best if there was a common ViewInterface which both implementing but as of now such an interface does not exist.



Example Usage

use Chadicus\Slim\OAuth2\Routes;
use OAuth2;
use OAuth2\GrantType;
use OAuth2\Storage;
use Slim;
use Slim\Views;

//Set-up the OAuth2 Server
$storage = new Storage\Pdo(array('dsn' => $dsn, 'username' => $username, 'password' => $password));
$server = new OAuth2\Server($storage);
$server->addGrantType(new GrantType\AuthorizationCode($storage));
$server->addGrantType(new GrantType\ClientCredentials($storage));

//Set-up the Slim Application
$app = new Slim\App(
        'view' => new Views\PhpRenderer('/path/to/chadicus/slim-oauth2-routes/templates'),

$container = $app->getContainer();

$app->map(['GET', 'POST'], Routes\Authorize::ROUTE, new Routes\Authorize($server, $container['view']))->setName('authorize');
$app->post(Routes\Token::ROUTE, new Routes\Token($server))->setName('token');
$app->map(['GET', 'POST'], Routes\ReceiveCode::ROUTE, new Routes\ReceiveCode($container['view']))->setName('receive-code');
$app->post(Routes\Revoke::ROUTE, new Routes\Revoke($server))->setName('revoke');

//Add custom routes
$slim->get('/foo', function($request, $response, $args) {
    $authorization = $request->getHeaderLine('Authorization');

    //validate access token against your storage

    return $response->withStatus(200);

//run the app

Authorize and The UserIdProvider

Within the Authorization route, you can define a UserIdProviderInterface to extract the user_id from the incoming request. By default the route will look in the GET query params.

class ArgumentUserIdProvider implements UserIdProviderInterface
	public function getUserId(ServerRequestInterface $request, array $arguments)
		return isset($arguments['user_id']) ? $arguments['user_id'] : null;

//middleware to add user_id to route parameters
$loginMiddelware = function ($request, $response, $next) {
	// Validate the user credentials
	$userId = MyUserService::getUserIdIfValidCredentials($request);
	if ($userId === false) {
		return $response->withStatus(303);

	//Put user_id into the route parameters
	$route = $request->getAttribute('route');
	$route->setArgument('user_id', $userId);

	//Credentials are valid, continue so the authorization code can be sent to the clients callback_uri
	return $next($request, $response);

$authorizeRoute = new Routes\Authorize($server, $view, 'authorize.phtml', new ArgumentUserIdProvider());
	['GET', 'POST'],
