README

This is a package for PHP which simplifies the setup of autoloading. This requires your class names to exactly reflect your file names. E.g. the class called MyClass should be in a file called MyClass.php. You should use unique class names. This package even supports classes with namespaces.

Example Usage

<?php
require_once(__DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php'); # this autoloads all vendor packages

$classFolders = array(
    __DIR__ . '/controllers',
    __DIR__ . '/libs',
    __DIR__ . '/views/*',
    __DIR__ . '/middleware',
    __DIR__ . '/models/',
);

// Optional attribute for strict autoloading (case sensitive), defaults to false
iRAP\Autoloader\Autoloader::$strict = true;

$autoloader = new iRAP\Autoloader\Autoloader($classFolders);

That's it! Now all of your classes will automatically load. You don't need to use any include or require statements.

There shouldn't be a problem if a directory ends with a / or not. If a directory ends with /*, this means that the directory is supposed to do a recursive search for directories inside the directory. Attribute strict is strict autoloading to match filenames to class names. Keeping it false will allow class Application to autoload from application.php or class UserController from usercontroller.php
