Build Status Coverage Status

zend-eventmanager is designed for the following use cases:

  • Implementing simple subject/observer patterns.
  • Implementing Aspect-Oriented designs.
  • Implementing event-driven architectures.

The basic architecture allows you to attach and detach listeners to named events, both on a per-instance basis as well as via shared collections; trigger events; and interrupt execution of listeners.

For migration from version 2 to version 3, please read the migration documentation.


We provide scripts for benchmarking zend-eventmanager using the Athletic framework; these can be found in the benchmarks/ directory.

To execute the benchmarks you can run the following command:

$ vendor/bin/athletic -p benchmarks
