Laminas MVC - Config Helper

Simple and small lib for reading a config array in all Controllers and all Views files.


Add in your composer.json file:

    "require": {
        "tasmaniski/laminas-config-helper": "^3.0"

After running: composer update You need to register new module. Add in file config/application.config.php:

'modules' => array(


You can use it in any of your controllers or view files (including layout.phtml). First you have to add key in any of your config files (config/autoload/*) eg. "key_from_config"

//read specific key registred in your config file.
$keyFromConfig = $this->configHelp('key_from_config');

// or in new version of PHP
$keyFromConfig = $this->configHelp()->key_from_config;
$keyFromConfig = $this->configHelp()['key_from_config']; // only for 5.4+

// this will read whole config
$config = $this->configHelp(); // return config object Laminas\Config\Config
echo $config->key_from_config;
