Registering a dependency

Dependencies are registered using functions which return the dependencies, they can be any callable, which recieves the container as an argument. This allows you to inject dependencies from the container into other dependencies at creation. A normal dependency always returns a new instance of the class, in contrast to a singleton.

use DarioRieke\DependencyInjection\DependencyInjectionContainer;

$container = new DependencyInjectionContainer();

//register a queue
$container->register('queue', function ($container) {
	return new SplQueue();

Registering a singleton

To register a singleton where the container always returns the same instance of the dependency, (a Logger in this case):

use DarioRieke\DependencyInjection\DependencyInjectionContainer;

$container = new DependencyInjectionContainer();

$container->singleton('logger', function ($container) {
	return new Logger();

Retrieving a dependency

Retrieving dependencies from the container is simple. Use the has and get methods to retrieve both singletons and normal dependencies

if($container->has('logger')) {
	$logger = $container->get('logger');

Registering and retrieving Parameters

You can also register and retrieve parameters, for example configuration values

$container->setParameter('debug', true);

if($container->hasParameter('debug')) {
	$debugMode = $container->getParameter('debug');

Adding method calls to dependenies

You may want to register a dependency and use a setter method to inject another dependency. This could be done inside the register function but you can do it in a more flexible way too. The addMethodCall recieves an array of arguments for the method call

$container->addMethodCall('myDependency', 'setLogger', [ $container->get('logger') ]);

Dependency aliases

You can register dependencies with alias names, for example an Interface name, and fetch it by its alias too.

$container->alias('logger', LoggerInterface::class);
