Derives absolute URL from relative and source URLs.

Useful when:

  • extracting full HREF URLs for links in a HTML document
  • determining absolute new URL for a 301 redirect where the HTTP server returned a relative Location value


The "Hello World" example

use webignition\AbsoluteUrlDeriver\AbsoluteUrlDeriver;
use webignition\Uri\Uri;

$base = 'https://example.com';
$relative = '/path?query#fragment';

    AbsoluteUrlDeriver::derive(new Uri($base), new Uri($relative))
