The package is PSR-15 middleware that allows parsing PSR-7 server request body selecting the parser according to the server request mime type.


  • PHP 7.4 or higher.


The package could be installed with Composer:

composer require yiisoft/request-body-parser

General usage

  1. Add RequestBodyParser to your middleware stack.
  2. Obtain parsed body via $request->getParsedBody();.

By default, it parses application/json requests where JSON is in the body.

You can add your own parser by implementing ParserInterface, adding it into the container and registering it within the middleware:

$requestBodyParser = $requestBodyParser->withParser('application/myformat', MyFormatParser::class);
