An 'framework' application using DI with tiers for full 'Dependency inversion'.

0.7.1 2016-10-23 21:09 UTC


An application runner framework that uses a DIC to allow multiple 'tiers', to allow complete separation between routing, controllers and view tiers.

Build Status

The real name for the "pattern" is breaking the execution of a program up into individual blocks. Each of those blocks can have their own set of dependencies.

This is why the 'framework' is called Tier, as it allows you to "arrange in layers" . Each block of execution builds up information to be used by subsequent execution blocks.


The documentation, such as it is, is available at http://tier.phpjig.com/

How to run

There is a skeleton application available here, which can be run with:

git clone https://github.com/Danack/TierJigSkeleton
cd TierJigSkeleton/
composer install
php -S localhost:8000 -t public

Running built in test

Some of the tests depend on PHP's built-in server. This is run automatically as part of the test suite if PCNTL is availble. For debugging purposes, you may wish to run this server manually which can be done with:

php -S localhost:8000 -t ./test/app/public
