Make sure that your server is configured with following PHP version and extensions:

  • PHP 8.1+
  • Spiral Framework 3.7+


To install the package:

composer require spiral/roadrunner-bridge

After package install you need to add bootloaders from the package in your application on the top of the list.

use Spiral\RoadRunnerBridge\Bootloader as RoadRunnerBridge;

protected const LOAD = [
    RoadRunnerBridge\HttpBootloader::class, // Optional, if it needs to work with http plugin
    RoadRunnerBridge\QueueBootloader::class, // Optional, if it needs to work with jobs plugin
    RoadRunnerBridge\CacheBootloader::class, // Optional, if it needs to work with KV plugin
    RoadRunnerBridge\GRPCBootloader::class, // Optional, if it needs to work with GRPC plugin
    RoadRunnerBridge\CentrifugoBootloader::class, // Optional, if it needs to work with centrifugo server
    RoadRunnerBridge\TcpBootloader::class, // Optional, if it needs to work with TCP plugin
    RoadRunnerBridge\MetricsBootloader::class, // Optional, if it needs to work with metrics plugin
    RoadRunnerBridge\LoggerBootloader::class, // Optional, if it needs to work with app-logger plugin
    RoadRunnerBridge\LockBootloader::class, // Optional, if it needs to work with lock plugin
    RoadRunnerBridge\ScaffolderBootloader::class, // Optional, to generate Centrifugo handlers and TCP services via Scaffolder
    // ...



RoadRunner includes TCP server and can be used to replace classic TCP setup with much greater performance and flexibility.


Add Spiral\RoadRunnerBridge\Bootloader\TcpBootloader to application bootloaders list:

use Spiral\RoadRunnerBridge\Bootloader as RoadRunnerBridge;

protected const LOAD = [
    // ...
    // ...

This bootloader adds a dispatcher and necessary services for TCP to work. Also, using the addService and addInterceptors methods can dynamically add services to TCP servers and configure interceptors.


Configure tcp section in the RoadRunner .rr.yaml configuration file with needed TCP servers. Example:

      addr: tcp://
      delimiter: "\r\n" # by default
      addr: tcp://

    num_workers: 2
    max_jobs: 0
    allocate_timeout: 60s
    destroy_timeout: 60s

Create configuration file app/config/tcp.php. In the configuration, it's required to specify the services that will handle requests from a specific TCP server. Optionally, interceptors can be added for each specific server. With the help there, can add some logic before handling the request in service. Configuration example:



return [
     * Services for each server.
    'services' => [
        'smtp' => SomeService::class,
        'monolog' => OtherService::class

     * Interceptors, this section is optional.
     * @see https://spiral.dev/docs/cookbook-domain-core/2.8/en#core-interceptors
    'interceptors' => [
        // several interceptors
        'smtp' => [
        'monolog' => SomeInterceptor::class // one interceptor

    'debug' => env('TCP_DEBUG', false)


A service must implement the interface Spiral\RoadRunnerBridge\Tcp\Service\ServiceInterface with one required method handle. After processing a request, the handle method must return the Spiral\RoadRunnerBridge\Tcp\Response\ResponseInterface object with result (RespondMessage, CloseConnection, ContinueRead).




namespace App\Tcp\Service;

use Spiral\RoadRunner\Tcp\Request;
use Spiral\RoadRunnerBridge\Tcp\Response\RespondMessage;
use Spiral\RoadRunnerBridge\Tcp\Response\ResponseInterface;
use Spiral\RoadRunnerBridge\Tcp\Service\ServiceInterface;

class TestService implements ServiceInterface
    public function handle(Request $request): ResponseInterface
        // some logic

        return new RespondMessage('some message', true);

The service can be generated using the Scaffolder component. Make sure that bootloader Spiral\RoadRunnerBridge\Bootloader\ScaffolderBootloader is added in your application and run:

php app.php create:tcp-service Test

This will generate service TestService in the folder Endpoint/Tcp/Service/TestService.php.

Note Namespace (and generation path) can be configured. Read more about Scaffolder component.
