Aura.Web implementations do not follow PSR-7, the recommendation for HTTP messages. As more and more packages that solve common HTTP message problems do implement this recommendation, it would be nice if these can be used for Aura.Web implementations too. This package will allow you to start implementing PSR-7 without changing the library underneath, preserving the current code usage 1 to make migration or refactoring easier.


Although Aura.Web still supports down to PHP 5.3, this package needs PHP 7.0 or higher. Older implementations need to migrate to PHP 7 before this package can be used. I would suggest to use rector/rector to make this upgrade a more simple task.

Using composer

composer require dmt-software/aura-web-psr


Creating a ServerRequest

use DMT\Aura\Psr\Message\ServerRequest;
// creating a request from $_SERVER variable
$serverRequest = new ServerRequest(
    $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] ?? '/',

Handling uploaded files

use DMT\Aura\Psr\Factory\UploadedFileFactory;
use DMT\Aura\Psr\Message\ServerRequest;
use DMT\Aura\Psr\Message\UploadedFile;
/** @var ServerRequest $serverRequest */
$serverRequest = $serverRequest->withUploadedFiles(
    /** @var UploadedFileFactory $uploadedFileFactory */
// at some later point 
foreach ($serverRequest->getUploadedFiles() as $uploadedFile) {
    /** @var UploadedFile $uploadedFile */
    if ($uploadedFile->getError() === \UPLOAD_ERR_OK) {
        // ... process the uploaded file

Creating a Response

use DMT\Aura\Psr\Message\Response;
$response = new Response(200, 'Ok');
$response->getBody()->write(/** your response html */);

Usage during migration

Wrapped objects

All PSR-7 http-messages wrap an Aura.Web object. According to their responsibility this can be any of the request or response objects. These objects can be retrieved by calling the getInnerObject() method on the http-message.

use DMT\Aura\Psr\Message\ServerRequest;
$serverRequest = new ServerRequest(
    $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] ?? '/',
$request = $serverRequest->getInnerObject();

// somewhere within the "legacy" code
if ($request->isPost()) {
    // process post data 


Changes to the http-messages will be internally tracked by the wrapped objects, but in such a way that the immutability of the message is preserved. This means each change that is made to a message object will return a new Aura.Web object instance.

use DMT\Aura\Psr\Message\ServerRequest;
/** @var ServerRequest $serverRequest */ 
$auraRequest = $serverRequest->getInnerObject();
// new server request is returned with a fresh Aura.Web request 
$serverRequest = $serverRequest->withProtocolVersion('2');
$newAuraRequest = $serverRequest->getInnerObject();

if ($auraRequest->server->get('SERVER_PROTOCOL') != $newAuraRequest->server->get('SERVER_PROTOCOL')) {
    print 'Protocol version has changed';

Make sure each time a http-message is changed, the aura request must be retrieved from the new message instance too.


Some build in solutions, like uploading files, receiving a json post, etc are not available when this package is used. For an overview of how to cope with these discrepancies see the compatibility documentation.

That http-messages use (a part of) the Aura.Web objects does not mean it is true the other way around. Some aura objects are not managed by the http-messages. For managing these objects one can fallback to the original code (once the inner object is retrieved) or use/write some additional code that works similar. See the workarounds documentation for tips and tricks on this subject.
