Common utilities used by the middlewares' packages:


This package is installable and autoloadable via Composer as middlewares/utils.

composer require middlewares/utils


Used to create PSR-7 and PSR-17 instances. Detects automatically Diactoros, Guzzle, Slim, Nyholm/psr7 and Sunrise but you can register a different factory using the psr/http-factory interface.

use Middlewares\Utils\Factory;
use Middlewares\Utils\FactoryDiscovery;

// Create PSR-7 instances
$request = Factory::createRequest('GET', '/');
$serverRequest = Factory::createServerRequest('GET', '/');
$response = Factory::createResponse(200);
$stream = Factory::createStream('Hello world');
$uri = Factory::createUri('');
$uploadedFile = Factory::createUploadedFile($stream);

// Get PSR-17 instances (factories)
$requestFactory = Factory::getRequestFactory();
$serverRequestFactory = Factory::getServerRequestFactory();
$responseFactory = Factory::getResponseFactory();
$streamFactory = Factory::getStreamFactory();
$uriFactory = Factory::getUriFactory();
$uploadedFileFactory = Factory::getUploadedFileFactory();

// By default, use the FactoryDiscovery class that detects diactoros, guzzle, slim, nyholm and sunrise (in this order of priority),
// but you can change it and add other libraries

Factory::setFactory(new FactoryDiscovery(

//And also register directly an initialized factory
Factory::getFactory()->setResponseFactory(new FooResponseFactory());

$fooResponse = Factory::createResponse();


Minimalist PSR-15 compatible dispatcher. Used for testing purposes.

use Middlewares\Utils\Dispatcher;

$response = Dispatcher::run([
    new Middleware1(),
    new Middleware2(),
    new Middleware3(),
    function ($request, $next) {
        $response = $next->handle($request);
        return $response->withHeader('X-Foo', 'Bar');


To resolve and execute a callable. It can be used as a middleware, server request handler or a callable:

use Middlewares\Utils\CallableHandler;

$callable = new CallableHandler(function () {
    return 'Hello world';

$response = $callable();

echo $response->getBody(); //Hello world


General purpose exception used to represent HTTP errors.

use Middlewares\Utils\HttpErrorException;

try {
    $context = ['problem' => 'Something bad happened'];
    throw HttpErrorException::create(500, $context);
} catch (HttpErrorException $exception) {
    $context = $exception->getContext();
