This package is auto-updated.

Last update: 2024-06-04 17:50:10 UTC


composer require istok/container
  • allow to call any \Closure with Container::call(\Closure $fn): mixed method
  • allow custom resolving by attributes (useful to fill DTO)
  • allow param-name binding: Container::argument(string $name, string $for, \Closure $resolver)
  • provided with wrapper implementing PSR-11 (see Istok\Container\Psr\StrictContainer and Istok\Container\Psr\GreedyContainer)

Registration methods

// Registration of cachable entry
Container::singletone(string $id, string|\Closure $defitition);

// This entry will not be cached
Container::register(string $id, string|\Closure $defitition);

// parameter $name of $for::__construct() will be resolved by given closure 
Container::argument(string $name, string $for, \Closure $resolver);

$definition parameters will be resolved by Container


// take instance
Container::make(string $id);

 * Call $fn with given arguments, using Container::make() for rest
 * @param array<string, mixed> $args
Container::call(\Closure $fn, $args);

 * Psalm-friendly version, contains actual type check, T should be class or interface, result should be typeof T
 * @template T
 * @param class-string<T> $id
 * @return T
Container::construct(string $id): object;

Identifier resolution order

  • use direct registration
  • use attributes, use if any suited
  • try to construct

Closure arguments resolution

  • apply explicitly provided arguments
  • use Container::get() to resolve rest

Resolving by attributes

If target class has attribute that implements Istok\Container\Resolver interface, instance of attribute will be constructed (by Container::get, not ReflectionAttribute::newInstance()), and then result of Resolver::resolve($targetName, ...$attributeArgs) will be returned as result.

Service and Model resolving

According to Object Design Style Guide by Matthias Noback, there are two types of objects:

Two types of objects

In an application there are typically two types of objects:

  1. Service objects which either perform a task, or return a piece of information.
  2. Objects that hold some data, and optionally expose some behavior for manipulating or retrieving that data.

First type have a well-known name, Service, and other one I called Model (I have to called it someway).
While Services depends on both other Services and Models, Models depends only on other Models and input.

One of reasons why I want to create this container was the desire to be able to get well-typed DTOs filled from user input, or config, as arguments of my controllers.

To achieve this, I added Resolver interface, which implementation can be used as attribute of Model.
This allows to add contextual configuration for resolving this type of objects.

So, Container itself is mostly for resolving Services, and ModelResolver used for resolving Models, like request DTOs.
