4.16. Aura.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.

4.16.1. Foreword Installation

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. Quality

Scrutinizer Code Quality codecov Continuous Integration

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 composer.

This library attempts to comply with PSR-1, PSR-2, and PSR-4. If you notice compliance oversights, please send a patch via pull request. Community

4.16.2. Getting Started Instantiation

First, instantiate a WebFactory object, then use it to create Request and Response objects.

use Aura\Web\WebFactory;

$web_factory = new WebFactory($GLOBALS);
$request = $web_factory->newRequest();
$response = $web_factory->newResponse();

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 example:

use Aura\Web\WebFactory;

$web_factory = new WebFactory(array(
    '_ENV' => $_ENV,
    '_GET' => $_GET,
    '_POST' => $_POST,
    '_COOKIE' => $_COOKIE,
    '_SERVER' => $_SERVER
$request = $web_factory->newRequest();
$response = $web_factory->newResponse();
?> 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 ...

... and the Response object has these sub-objects:

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.
