Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) module for the Lumen PHP framework.




Run the following command to install the package through Composer:

composer require nordsoftware/lumen-cors


Copy the configuration template in config/cors.php to your application's config directory and modify according to your needs. For more information see the Configuration Files section in the Lumen documentation.

Available configuration options:

  • allow_origins array Origins that are allowed to perform requests, defaults to an empty array. Patterns also accepted, for example *
  • allow_methods array HTTP methods that are allowed, defaults to an empty array
  • allow_headers array HTTP headers that are allowed, defaults to an empty array
  • allow_credentials boolean Whether or not the response can be exposed when credentials are present, defaults to false
  • expose_headers array HTTP headers that are allowed to be exposed to the web browser, defaults to an empty array
  • max_age integer Indicates how long preflight request can be cached, defaults to 0


Add the following lines to bootstrap/app.php:


The module now automatically handles all CORS requests.

Customizing behavior

While the service can be configured somewhat using config/cors.php, some more exotic things such as regular expressions for allowed origins cannot. If you need to, you can provide this custom functionality yourself:

  1. Extend CorsService and override e.g. isOriginAllowed()
  2. Extend CorsServiceProvider and override registerBindings(), then register your own service class instead


Please read the guidelines.
