PHP library for handling requests.

Requirements

This library is supported by PHP versions 7.0 or higher.

IMPORTANT: Version 2.x does not support version 1.x of this library.

The preferred way to install this extension is through Composer.

To install PHP Request library, simply:

$ composer require josantonius/request

The previous command will only install the necessary files, if you prefer to download the entire source code you can use:

$ composer require josantonius/request --prefer-source

You can also clone the complete repository with Git:

$ git clone https://github.com/Josantonius/php-request.git

Or install it manually:

Download Request.php and Validate.php:

$ wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Josantonius/php-request/master/src/Request.php

$ wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Josantonius/php-validate/master/src/Validate.php

Available methods in this library:

- Check if it's a GET request:

Request::isGet();

# Return (boolean)

- Check if it's a POST request:

Request::isPost();

# Return (boolean)

- Check if it's a PUT request:

Request::isPut();

# Return (boolean)

- Check if it's a DELETE request:

Quick Start

To use this library with Composer:

require __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';

use Josantonius\Request\Request;

Or If you installed it manually, use it:

require_once __DIR__ . '/Request.php';
require_once __DIR__ . '/Validate.php';

use Josantonius\Request\Request;
use Josantonius\Validate\Validate;

Usage

For the examples it will be simulated that the following data is received in the request:

Example data received in the request:

'user_name' => 'John'
'user_surname' => 'Doe'
'user_age' => 35
'user_rating' => 8.5
'user_ip' => '89.58.54.188'
'user_website' => 'http://www.site.com/'
'user_email' => 'john@site.com'
'user_address' => [
  'street' => 'unknown'
  'locality' => 'Seville'
  'country' => 'Spain'
]
'is_active' => true

Example of use for this library:

- Check if it's a GET request:

Request::isGet(); // true or false

- Check if it's a POST request:

Request::isPost(); // true or false

- Check if it's a PUT request:

Request::isPut(); // true or false

- Check if it's a DELETE request:

Request::isDelete(); // true or false

- Access to the parameters of the request.

$_GET = Request::input('GET');

$_POST = Request::input('POST');

$_PUT = Request::input('PUT');

$_DELETE = Request::input('DELETE');

Returns an anonymous function that will return the Request object when it's called.

- As array:

- Get and sanitize all data and return them as array:

$array = $_GET()->asArray();

$array = $_POST()->asArray();

$array = $_PUT()->asArray();

$array = $_DELETE()->asArray();

var_dump($array);

/*
array(9) {
  ["user_name"]=>
  string(4) "John"
  ["user_surname"]=>
  string(3) "Doe"
  ["user_age"]=>
  int(35)
  ["user_rating"]=>
  float(8.5)
  ["user_ip"]=>
  string(12) "89.58.54.188"
  ["user_website"]=>
  string(20) "http://www.site.com/"
  ["user_email"]=>
  string(13) "john@site.com"
  ["user_address"]=>
  array(3) {
    ["street"]=>
    string(7) "unknown"
    ["locality"]=>
    string(7) "Seville"
    ["country"]=>
    string(5) "Spain"
  }
  ["is_active"]=>
  bool(true)
}
*/

- Obtain, sanitize all data and return them as array and filter each value according to the data type:

$filters = [
    'user_name' => 'string',
    'user_age' => 'string',
    'is_online' => 'boolean'
];

$array = $_GET()->asArray($filters);

$array = $_POST()->asArray($filters);

$array = $_PUT()->asArray($filters);

$array = $_DELETE()->asArray($filters);

var_dump($array['user_name']); // string(4) "John"

var_dump($array['user_age']); // string(2) "35" (although an integer is received, it's returned as a string)

var_dump($array['user_age']); // NULL (doesn't exist, the default value is returned)

- Obtain, sanitize all data and return them as array, filter each value according to the data type and specify a value for each key when it's wrong:

$filters = [
    'user_rating' => 'float',
    'is_active' => 'boolean',
    'is_online' => 'boolean'
];

$array = $_GET()->asArray($filters, '');

$array = $_POST()->asArray($filters, '');

$array = $_PUT()->asArray($filters, '');

$array = $_DELETE()->asArray($filters, '');

var_dump($array['user_rating']); // float(8.5)

var_dump($array['is_active']); // bool(true)

var_dump($array['is_online']); // string(0) "" (doesn't exist, the default value is returned)

- As object:

$object = $_GET()->asObject();

$object = $_POST()->asObject();

$object = $_PUT()->asObject();

$object = $_DELETE()->asObject();

/*
object(stdClass)#1 (9) {
  ["user_name"]=>
  string(4) "John"
  ["user_surname"]=>
  string(3) "Doe"
  ["user_age"]=>
  int(35)
  ["user_rating"]=>
  float(8.5)
  ["user_ip"]=>
  string(12) "89.58.54.188"
  ["user_website"]=>
  string(20) "http://www.site.com/"
  ["user_email"]=>
  string(13) "john@site.com"
  ["user_address"]=>
  object(stdClass)#2 (3) {
    ["street"]=>
    string(7) "unknown"
    ["locality"]=>
    string(7) "Seville"
    ["country"]=>
    string(5) "Spain"
  }
  ["is_active"]=>
  bool(true)
}
*/
