Simply PHP library to create REST API.


Strictly requires PHP 7.4


Via Composer: composer require lawondyss/router


Simply instantiate.

use Lawondyss\Sandy\Router\Router;

require_once __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';

$router = new Router;

No static. Why not?

Defining routes

Add routes for HTTP method(s) and URL path (as mask). Callback can processing request and editing response.

// predefined HTTP method
$router->get('/', function (Request $request, Response $response) {
  $response->body = 'Hello world';

// predefined HTTP method
$router->post('/foo/bar', function(Request $request, Response $response) {
  $response->code = Response::S201_CREATED;

// own definition of valid HTTP methods (PUT and PATCH)
$router->add(Router::PUT | Router::PATCH, '/foo/bar', function (Request $request, Response $response) {
  $response->code = Response::S204_NO_CONTENT;
  $response->addHeader('X-Lipsum-Message', 'Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet');

Parameters in mask

For catching segments of URL use { and }.

Optional segments of URL is in between [ and ].

Definition of regex validation for catching segment is after :.

All catching segments is in Request::$params.

$router->get('/foo/{bar:\d+}[/{baz:[a-z]+}]', function(Request $request, Response $response) {
  $response->contentType = 'application/json';
  $response->body = json_encode($request->params);
