Melis Platform Frameworks

v3.2.2 2020-03-03 05:17 UTC


This Module handles the execution of Third party framework and return the content as response of the request, it also provides a Service in order to make a request to the third party.


This module requires melisplatform/melis-core installed. This will automatically be done when using composer.


composer require melisplatform/melis-platform-frameworks

Adding Third Party Frameworks

Third Party Frameworks are located at the root of Melis Platform application /thirdparty, inside this directory you can place your desired Frameworks.
Framework skeletons for Melis Platform can be downloaded here:
Laravel, Symfony, Lumen, Silex


Above is an example of Laravel and Symfony frameworks added to /thirdparty directory.
Note: You can decide what would be the name of the framework directory name and then apply it on your configuration below.

Third Party Framework Execution

When executing the third party framework a config data MUST be declared in the config file in order to determine the application to be executed, this can be done by adding this data array on the config file:

'third-party-framework' => [
    'index-path' => [

'index-path' must set the path of the application index.php file inside /thirdparty in the root directory. For example 'Laravel/public/index.php'. DO NOT include the /thirdparty directory in the path.

Third Party Frameworks modification

Frameworks response MUST be modified to return the response content and the status of the request, here's an example of Laravel framework integration as third party framework.

Laravel public/index.php

At the last part of the code in public/index.php file, Laravel is generating the response by calling $response->send() method from Response Object then after terminated the application by $kernel->terminate($request, $response), as code syntax below:


$kernel = $app->make(Illuminate\Contracts\Http\Kernel::class);

$response = $kernel->handle(
    $request = Illuminate\Http\Request::capture()


$kernel->terminate($request, $response);

In the integration of third party framework instead of displaying the response and terminating in the index.php file, this will return an array of data containing the content using getContent() and status getStatusCode() from Response object.


// $response->send();

// $kernel->terminate($request, $response);

return [
    'statusCode' => $response->getStatusCode(),
    'content' => $response->getContent(),

Notice the $response->send() and $kernel->terminate($request, $response) are commented to avoid rendering the response and terminating the application.

Service and implementation

This module has a service MelisPlatformService to call in order to get a response from third party framework. By specifying the route of the request it will execute a request and return the content as the result.


$thirdPartySrv = $this->getServiceLocator()->get('MelisPlatformService');
$response = $thirdPartySrv->getContent();
