Core classes explained

This framework contains a few core classes. These classes are used in this core:

AbstractControllerAll Controllers should extend this. It contains the Request and Config object.
AbstractMiddlewareAll Middlewares should extend this. It contains the Request and Config object.
BootstrapThe kickstarter of this framework.
ConfigParses the configuration files and provides an interface to request it's contents.
RegistryRegistry that can be used to store and later retrieve objects.
RequestParses the web request and provides an interface to read the request.
ResponsePopulate (or extend) this object in a Controller to return something to the client.

Middlewares included in the Core bundle

In the main project, you'll see a middleware directive in the configuration. Multiple middlewares can be loaded, and are loaded in the sequence in which they are configured.

These middlewares are included in this Miniframe Core bundle and can be used to quickly set up a basic application, or as example for building your own middleware classes:

Class nameDescription
UrlToMvcRouterURL To MVC Router; documentation at src/Middleware/
BasicAuthenticationBasic HTTP Authentication; documentation at src/Middleware/
SessionPHP Sessions; documentation at src/Middleware/
AccessListDeny / Allow clients based by their IP; documentation at src/Middleware/

Pre-defined response types included in the Core bundle

Tip for Windows Developers

In the bin folder, a few batch files exist, to make development easier.

If you install Docker Desktop for Windows, you can use bin\composer.bat, bin\phpcs.bat, bin\phpunit.bat, bin\phpstan.bat and bin\security-checker.bat as shortcuts for Composer, CodeSniffer, PHPUnit, PHPStan and the Security Checker, without the need of installing PHP and other dependencies on your machine.

The same Docker container and tools are used in Bitbucket Pipelines to automatically test this project.
