Documentation

  • Syntax/style cleanup in the README (Berker Peksag)

Version 2.0.0

Toro v2.0.0 is a significant departure from v1.0.0. As the API is not backwards-compatible, please review the changes below.

PHP

New API

The old API:

<?php

class MainHandler extends ToroHandler {
    function get() {
        echo "Hello, world";
    }
}

$site = new ToroApplication(array(
    array("/", "MainHandler")
));

$site->serve();

The new API:

<?php

class MainHandler {
    function get() {
        echo "Hello, world";
    }
}

Toro::serve(array(
    "/" => "MainHandler"
));

Several things to note from the changes:

  • ToroApplication has been replaced with Toro, a static class
  • Calling serve now requires a simplified associative array of routes (route => handler)
  • ToroHandler has been removed (empty and unnecessary class)

Simplified Routing

Routing has been significantly improved. As of v2.0.0, you can define routes like:

<?php

Toro::serve(Array(
    "/catalog" => "CatalogHandler",
    "/catalog/page/:number" => "CatalogHandler",
    "/product/:alpha" => "ProductHandler",
    "/manufacturer/:string" => "ManufacturerHandler"
));

With v2.0.0, you can now use route stubs such as :number, :string, and :alpha (alphanumeric). These are expanded at matchtime via string replacements.

Note, you can still use regular expressions. Here's the same example above using regexes instead of route stubs:

<?php

Toro::serve(Array(
    "/catalog" => "CatalogHandler",
    "/catalog/page/([0-9]+)" => "CatalogHandler",
    "/product/([a-zA-Z0-9-_]+)" => "ProductHandler",
    "/manufacturer/([a-zA-Z]+)" => "ManufacturerHandler"
));

404 Handling

404 management has been extracted from toro.php and is now managed by a special 404 ToroHook:

<?php

ToroHook::add("404", function() {
    header("HTTP/1.0 404 Not Found");
    echo "Missing Page";
    exit;
});

This gives you control over specifying the header, including a page, exiting the control flow, etc.

Cleanup

  • Adjusted cache busting headers for xhr requests
  • Removed overrides from routes (use default method arguments instead)
  • Removed specialized mobile and tablet methods (use responsive layouts instead)
  • Removed the unused InvalidRouteType exception

Documentation

  • Revised the projects's readme to reflect the new API
  • Updated existing examples to use the new API
  • Created the changelog to handle future updates

Errata

  • Added an MIT License
  • Added a .gitignore to prevent .DS_Store jank

Version 1.0.0

  • Initial release
