Job action control through dynamic workflows, for CodeIgniter 4

Quick Start

  1. Install with Composer: > composer require tatter/workflows
  2. Update the database: > php spark migrate -all
  3. Register actions: > php spark actions:register
  4. Start your first workflow: https://[yourdomain.com]/workflows


Workflows functions as a super-controller for CodeIgniter 4, allowing developers to write their own actions as classes and then string them together for job flow controls.


Install easily via Composer to take advantage of CodeIgniter 4's autoloading capabilities and always be up-to-date:

  • > composer require tatter/workflows

Or, install manually by downloading the source files and adding the directory to app/Config/Autoload.php.

Once the files are downloaded and included in the autoload, run any library migrations to ensure the database is setup correctly:

  • > php spark migrate -all

Configuration (optional)

The library's default behavior can be altered by extending its config file. Copy examples/Workflows.php to app/Config/ and follow the instructions in the comments. If no config file is found in app/Config the library will use its own.


The CLI command spark actions:register will search all namespaces for valid action files and register them. Action files are identified by:

  • Located in the Actions subfolder within the root of a namespace
  • Implementing Tatter\Workflows\Interfaces\ActionInterface

You may write your own actions or import them from existing packages. Once actions are registered you can create workflows from a series of those actions by visiting the /workflows route.

Job control

Runner.php is the central controller that handles job flow. By default this intercepts routes that match /jobs/, but this can be changed in the config file.

Action permissions

You may limit access to individual Actions using the role attribute of its definition. By default the "user" role is accessible by anyone. To restrict access, define a has_permission() function which takes a single string parameter with the name of the role (hint: or use Myth:Auth's existing version).
