Informations about the package web
Provides web Request and Response objects for use by web controllers and actions. These are representations of the PHP web environment, not HTTP request and response objects proper.
This library requires PHP 5.3 or later; we recommend using the latest available version of PHP as a matter of principle. It has no userland dependencies.
It is installable and autoloadable via Composer as aura/web.
Alternatively, download a release or clone this repository, then require or include its autoload.php file.
To run the unit tests at the command line, issue
composer install and then
./vendor/bin/phpunit at the package root. This requires Composer to be available as
First, instantiate a WebFactory object, then use it to create Request and Response objects.
Note that if
jit-globals is turned on, merely passing
$GLOBALS will not
work properly. In this case, use
compact() to pass the needed values. For
Request and Response Objects
Because each object contains so much functionality, we have split up the documentation into a Request page and a Response page.
By way of overview, the Request object has these sub-objects ...
- $request->cookies for $_COOKIES
- $request->env for $_ENV
- $request->files for $_FILES
- $request->post for $_POST
- $request->query for $_GET
- $request->server for $_SERVER
- $request->client for the client making the request
- $request->content for the raw body of the request
- $request->headers for the request headers
- $request->method for the request method
- $request->params for path-info parameters
- $request->url for the request URL
... and the Response object has these sub-objects:
- $response->status for the status code, status phrase, and HTTP version
- $response->headers for non-cookie headers
- $response->cookies for cookie headers
- $response->content for describing the response content, and for convenience methods related to content type, charset, disposition, and filename
- $response->cache for convenience methods related to cache headers
- $response->redirect for convenience methods related to Location and Status
Once you have built a Response you can send it with any HTTP mechanism you prefer, including plain PHP.
Be sure to read the Request and Response pages for more detailed information.
