This package is installable and autoloadable via Composer as middlewares/referrer-spam.
composer require middlewares/referrer-spam
By default, use
matomo/referrer-spam-blacklist as a list of spammers
$spam = new Middlewares\ReferrerSpam();
But you can configure a custom spam list if you don't want to use the default:
$spammers = [ 'http://www.0n-line.tv', 'http://холодныйобзвон.рф', ]; $spam = new Middlewares\ReferrerSpam($spammers);
Optionally, you can provide a
Psr\Http\Message\ResponseFactoryInterface as the second argument to create the error responses (
403). If it's not defined, Middleware\Utils\Factory will be used to detect it automatically.
$responseFactory = new MyOwnResponseFactory(); $spam = new Middlewares\ReferrerSpam($spammers, $responseFactory);
