Provides Symfony Dependency Injection for a Slim Application

Also provides a minimalist Controller pattern class for use in your applications.

For an example application that uses this library, please see Slim-DIC Example


The Slim framework is great for lightweight sites but lacks the ease of creating testable, adaptable code that can be found when adopting a strict DI approach to development.

This small library supports the integration of the easy to use, yet powerful Symfony version of a DI container with the lightweight Slim Framework, giving you the ability to create great, maintainable and configurable web sites quickly.

  1. fork it
  2. write the test
