Build Your Own Micro Framework in PHP 7

Build Your Own Micro Framework in PHP 7

Leverage the awesomeness of Composer, components and craftsmanship to create your own lightweight, high performance microframework

About the Book

Fantastic times ahead!

It's an exciting time to be coding in the PHP world just now with the explosive combination of PHP7 and PSR-7 out there in the wilds and available now. Both of these game-changers make a hugely positive impact on the future of PHP as a key language for web development. 

PHP7 brings a new level of maturity to the language's object model and a massive boost to performance. PSR-7 brings us a unified set of HTTP messaging interfaces to help us service the request-response cycle. These two, in combination with the awesomeness of Composer and Packagist, make for exciting times ahead for anyone involved in the PHP application development ecosystem. 

With this book, we won't be reinventing the wheel. Instead, we'll be trying something new - creating our own micro-framework by leveraging the awesomeness of Composer and Packagist to select precisely the components that we want and wiring them together with framework agnostic code to provide all of the features that you need and none of the bloat that you don't. 

Topics covered in the book include: 

  • Configuration and asset management
  • Routing
  • Dependency injection
  • Persistence and storage
  • Authentication and authorisation
  • Templating
  • Caching strategies
  • Developing our own middleware
  • API-centric development strategies with RESTfulness in mind

About the Author

Hi! I've been developing in PHP since the 3.x versions came out in 1998, leaving behind the frustrations of Perl syntax and Java compilation times. In more recent times, I've been the Development Manager at a dotCom incubator responsible for finding, hiring and mentoring awesome developers to work in awesome project teams working on, err, awesome projects!

At times the architect. At times the technical lead. At other times wearing the "one who broke the build" cardboard box on my head. 

I'm a huge advocate of the 'continuous learning' aspect of a developer's career and the joys of discovery that it brings. 

It may come as no surprise, given that I wrote the "More Pub Time Principle", I'm not averse to talking tech over a large and tasty pint of Guinness. 

When not coding, writing or carousing, my job in life seems to be as the full time personal live-in slave to two black cats called Louis and Mina at their home in London, England.
