A bridge for using ronanchilvers/container with Slim3. This package allows you to replace the default slim3 container (Pimple) with ronanchilvers/container.


The easiest way to install is via composer:

composer install ronanchilvers/container-bridge-slim


To replace the default slim container with ronanchilvers/container all you need to do is pass an instance of the container into the constructor of the slim app object. Here's an example:

use Psr\Http\Message\ResponseInterface;
use Psr\Http\Message\ServerRequestInterface;
use Ronanchilvers\Container\Slim\Container;
use Slim\App;

// Initialise a new container instance
$container = new Container();

// Pass the container instance into the app object's constructor
$app = new App($container);

$app->get('/', function (ServerRequestInterface $request, ResponseInterface $response) {
    return $response->write('hallo');

Controlling Slim settings is similar to the usual Slim mechanism:

use Ronanchilvers\Container\Slim\Container;
use Slim\App;

$container = new Container([
    'settings' => [
        'displayErrorDetails' => true,

// Create the App object
$app = new App($container);


This is quite simple a simple bridge and has 100% test coverage. You can run the tests by doing:


The default phpunit.xml.dist file creates coverage information in a build/coverage subdirectory.
