README

Notes

This project is here to give you a basic understanding of how to setup and using simple-php-router.

You can find the documentation for simple-php-router here: https://github.com/skipperbent/simple-php-router

Please note that this demo-project only covers how to integrate the simple-router in a project without a framework. If you are using some sort of PHP framework in your project the implementation might vary.

What we won't cover:

  • How to setup a solution that fits your need. This is a basic demo to help you get started.
  • Understanding of MVC; including Controllers, Middlewares or ExceptionHandlers.
  • How to integrate into third party frameworks.

What we cover:

  • How to get up and running fast - from scratch.
  • How to get ExceptionHandlers, Middlewares and Controllers working.
  • How to setup your webservers.

Installation

  • Navigate to the demo-project folder in terminal and run composer update to install the latest version.
  • Point your webserver to demo-project/public.

Setting up Nginx

If you are using Nginx please make sure that url-rewriting is enabled.

You can easily enable url-rewriting by adding the following configuration for the Nginx configuration-file for the demo-project.

location / {
    try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$query_string;
}

Setting up Apache

Nothing special is required for Apache to work. We've include the .htaccess file in the public folder. If rewriting is not working for you, please check that the mod_rewrite module (htaccess support) is enabled in the Apache configuration.

Folder structure

Folder Description
routes Folder contains the files with our custom routes.
app Contains projects-specific PHP classes.
public Public folder which are accessible through the web.

Notes

The demo project has it's own Router class implementation which extends the SimpleRouter class with further functionality. This class can be useful adding additional functionality that are required before and after routing occurs or any extra functionality belonging to the router itself.

In this project we also use our custom router-class to autoload the routes.php file from our custom location (app/routes.php).

Please check the routes.php file in demo-project/app for all the urls/rules available in the project.

CSRF-verifier

For the purpose of this demo, we've added a custom CSRF-verifier middleware called CsrfVerifier and disabled CSRF checks for all calls to /api/*. This will ensure that CSRF form-checks are not applied when calling our demo api url.

Exception handlers

The included CustomExceptionHandler class returns a very basic json response for errors received on calls to /api/* or otherwise just a simple formatted error response.

Middlewares

ApiVerification class is added to all calls to /api/*. This simple class just adds some data to the Request object, which is returned in one of the methods in the ApiController class. We've added this class to demonstrate that you can use middlewares to ensure that the user has the correct authentication - before router loads the controller itself.

Urls

Please see routes.php for all routes and rules.
