klein.php is a lightning fast router for PHP 5.3+

Getting started

  1. PHP 5.3.x is required
  2. Setup URL rewriting so that all requests are handled by index.php
  3. Add <?php require 'klein.php'; as your first line and dispatch(); as your last
  4. (Optional) Throw in some APC for good measure

Example

Example 1 - Respond to all requests

<?php
respond(function () {
    echo 'Hello World!';
});

Example 2 - Named parameters

<?php
respond('/[:name]', function ($request) {
    echo 'Hello ' . $request->name;
});

Example 3 - So RESTful

<?php
respond('GET', '/posts', $callback);
respond('POST', '/posts/create', $callback);
respond('PUT', '/posts/[i:id]', $callback);
respond('DELETE', '/posts/[i:id]', $callback);

//To match multiple request methods:
respond(array('POST','GET'), $route, $callback);

//Or you might want to handle the requests in the same place
respond('/posts/[create|edit:action]?/[i:id]?', function ($request, $response) {
    switch ($request->action) {
        //
    }
});

Example 4 - Sending objects / files

<?php
respond(function ($request, $response) {
    $response->xml = function ($object) {
        //Custom xml output function
    }
    $response->csv = function ($object) {
        //Custom csv output function
    }
});

respond('/report.[xml|csv|json:format]?', function ($reqest, $response) {
    //Get the format or fallback to JSON as the default
    $send = $request->param('format', 'json');
    $response->$send($report);
});

respond('/report/latest', function ($request, $response) {
    $response->file('/tmp/cached_report.zip');
});

Example 5 - All together

<?php
respond(function ($reguest, $response, $app) {
    //Handle exceptions => flash the message and redirect to the referrer
    $response->onError(function ($response, $err_msg) {
        $response->flash($err_msg);
        $response->back();
    });

    //The third parameter can be used to share scope and global objects
    $app->db = new PDO(...);
});

respond('POST', '/users/[i:id]/edit', function ($request, $response) {
    //Quickly validate input parameters
    $request->validate('username', 'Please enter a valid username')->isLen(5, 64)->isChars('a-zA-Z0-9-');
    $request->validate('password')->notNull();

    $app->db->query(...); //etc.

    //Add view properties and helper methods
    $response->title = 'foo';
    $response->escape = function ($str) {
        return htmlentities($str); //Assign view helpers
    };

    $response->render('myview.phtml');
});

//myview.phtml:
<title><?php echo $this->escape($this->title) ?></title>

Route namespaces

<?php
with('/users', function () {

    respond('GET', '/?', function ($request, $response) {
        //Show all users
    });

    respond('GET', '/[:id]', function ($request, $response) {
        //Show a single user
    });

});

foreach(array('projects', 'posts') as $controller) {
    with("/$controller", "controllers/$controller.php");
}

Validators

To add a custom validator use addValidator($method, $callback)

<?php
addValidator('hex', function ($str) {
    return preg_match('/^[0-9a-f]++$/i', $str);
});

You can validate parameters using is<$method>() or not<$method>(), e.g.

$request->validate('key')->isHex();

Validation methods are chainable, and a custom exception message can be specified for if/when validation fails

$request->validate('key', 'The key was invalid')->isHex()->isLen(32);

Routing

[ match_type : param_name ]

Some examples

*                    //Match all request URIs
[i]                  //Match an integer
[i:id]               //Match an integer as 'id'
[a:action]           //Match alphanumeric characters as 'action'
[h:key]              //Match hexadecimal characters as 'key'
[:action]            //Match anything up to the next / or end of the URI as 'action'
[create|edit:action] //Match either 'create' or 'edit' as 'action'
[*]                  //Catch all (lazy)
[*:trailing]         //Catch all as 'trailing' (lazy)
[**:trailing]        //Catch all (possessive - will match the rest of the URI)
.[:format]?          //Matches an optional parameter 'format' - a / or . before the block is also optional

Some more complicated examples

/posts/[*:title][i:id]    //Matches "/posts/this-is-a-title-123"
/output.[xml|json:format]? //Matches "/output", "output.xml", "output.json"
/[:controller]?/[:action]? //Matches the typical /controller/action format

Note - all routes that match the request URI are called - this allows you to incorporate complex conditional logic such as user authentication or view layouts. e.g. as a basic example, the following code will wrap other routes with a header and footer

respond('*', function ($request, $response) { $response->render('header.phtml'; });
//other routes
respond('*', function ($request, $response) { $response->render('footer.phtml'; });

Routes automatically match the entire request URI. If you need to match only a part of the request URI or use a custom regular expression, use the @ operator. If you need to negate a route, use the ! operator

//Match all requests that end with '.json' or '.csv'
respond('@\.(json|csv)$', ...

//Match all requests that _don't_ start with /admin
respond('!@^/admin/', ...

Views

You can send properties or helpers to the view by assigning them to the $response object, or by using the second arg of $response->render()

<?php
$response->escape = function ($str) {
    return htmlentities($str);
};

$response->render('myview.phtml', array('title' => 'My View'));

//Or just: $response->title = 'My View';

myview.phtml

<title><?php echo $this->escape($this->title) ?></title>

Views are compiled and run in the scope of $response so all response methods can be accessed with $this

<?php
$this->render('partial.html')           //Render partials
$this->param('myvar')                   //Access request parameters
echo $this->query(array('page' => 2))   //Modify the current query string

API

<?php
$request->
    header($key)                        //Gets a request header
    cookie($key)                        //Gets a cookie from the request
    session($key)                       //Gets a session variable
    param($key, $default = null)        //Gets a request parameter (get, post, named)
    params()                            //Return all parameters
    params($mask = null)                //Return all parameters that match the mask array - extract() friendly
    validate($param, $err_msg = null)   //Starts a validator chain
    method()                            //Gets the request method
    method($method)                     //Checks if the request method is $method, i.e. method('post') => true
    isSecure($required = false)         //https? Redirect if $required is true and the request is not secure
    id()                                //Gets a unique ID for the request
    ip()                                //Get the request IP
    userAgent()                         //Get the request user agent
    uri()                               //Get the request URI
    <param>                             //Gets a request parameter

$response->
    header($key, $value = null)                     //Sets a response header
    cookie($key, $value = null, $expiry = null)     //Sets a cookie
    cookie($key, null)                              //Removes a cookie
    flash($msg, $type = 'info', $params = array()   //Sets a flash message
    file($file, $filename = null)                   //Send a file
    json($object, $callback = null)                 //Send an object as JSON(p)
    markdown($str, $args, ...)                      //Return a string formatted with markdown
    code($code)                                     //Sends an HTTP response code
    redirect($url, $code = 302)                     //Redirect to the specified URL
    refresh()                                       //Redirect to the current URL
    back()                                          //Redirect to the referer
    render($view, $data = array())                  //Renders a view or partial (in the scope of $response)
    layout($layout)                                 //Sets the view layout
    yield()                                         //Call inside the layout to render the view content
    onError($callback)                              //$callback takes ($response, $msg, $err_type = null)
