PHP-DI integration with Zend Framework 1

This library provides integration for PHP-DI with Zend Framework 1. PHP-DI is a Dependency Injection Container for PHP.

This project also contains the Zend Framework quickstart configured with PHP-DI.

If you are looking for Zend Framework 2 integration, head over here.


The full documentation is available on PHP-DI's website.

Zend Framework quickstart

The quickstart is in the quickstart/ folder. You can look at it to see how PHP-DI can be integrated to a ZF1 application.

To run the quickstart, get composer and install the dependencies:

$ curl -s | php
$ php composer.phar install

Please be aware that the quickstart uses annotations. Since PHP-DI 5 annotations are disabled by default, please follow the installation instructions to enable them.

Note: I tried not to diverge too much from the official quickstart. So the code may look messy, but that's how the ZF quickstart is ;)
