Message Driven PHP

Build Status Code Coverage

MsgPHP is a project that aims to provide (common) message based domain layers for your application. It has a low development time overhead and avoids being overly opinionated.

Domain Layers

The domain layer is a collection of entity objects and related business logic that is designed to represent the enterprise business model. The major scope of this layer is to create a standardized and federated set of objects, that could be potentially reused within different projects. (source)

The current supported domain layers are:

On the roadmap are:

  • Organization
  • File
  • Taxonomy
  • ...

Message Based

Each domain layer provides a set of messages to consume it. Typically the messages are categorized into command-, event- and query-messages.

The main advantage is we can intuitively create an independent flow of business logic. It provides consistency in handling our business logic by dispatching the same message in e.g. web as well as CLI.

$anyMessageBus->dispatch(new CreateSomething(['field' => 'value']));

A command-message is dispatched and picked up by its handler to do the work. This handler on itself dispatches a new event-message (e.g. SomethingCreated) to notify the work is done.

A custom handler can subscribe to the SomethingCreated event to further finalize the business requirements (e.g. dispatch another commmand-message).

class MakeSomethingWork
    private $bus;

    public function __construct(YourFavoriteBus $bus)
        $this->bus = $bus;

    public function __invoke(SomethingCreated $event)
        // do work, or better delegate work:
        $this->bus->dispatch(new LetSomethingWork($event->something));




You can’t perform that action at this time.
