// PHP与C样式语法相似,因此[if]语句,[for]和[while]循环,[函数],
// [注释]等也与其他广泛使用的语言(例如JavaScript,C#和Java)相似。
// 如果您有一些JavaScript经验,那么很容易上手PHP。

// PHP脚本以[<?php]开头,并且各行必须以分号[;]结尾。
// [echo]语句输出内容。 如果将本示例另存为文件,
// 则只输出“你好,世界!”。
echo '你好,世界!';

PHP Syntax - Variables

// In PHP all variables start with a dollar sign character [$] followed by
// the variable name. Variables are created when they are first used and
// not declared ahead of time.
$value = 'Test';

// Variables are dynamically typed in PHP; the data type is determined
// by the value of the variable and the type can be changed.
$value = (10 * 20);
$string = 'String';
$number = 123;
$decimal = 123.456;
$bool = true;
$null = null;

// Arrays can be defined using [] characters like JavaScript and other languages
// when using any recent version of PHP. If using an old version of PHP
// (5.3 or below) Arrays need to be defined using the [array()] function.
$cities = ['Tokyo', 'São Paulo', 'Jakarta', 'Seoul', 'Manila', 'New York City'];

// An extra comma can be included after the last item
$numbers = array(123, 456, 789,);

// PHP Array's is actually an ordered map so they are often used like
// Dictionaries, Hashes, or Associative Arrays from other languages.
$months_days = [
    'January' => 31,
    'February' => 28,
    'March' => 31,
    'April' => 30,

// Objects can be dynamically created in PHP using the built-in [stdClass].
$object = new \stdClass;
$object->name = 'FastSitePHP';
$object->type = 'PHP Framework';

// Object can also be created dynamically when casting from an array.
$object2 = (object)[
    'name' => 'FastSitePHP',
    'type' => 'PHP Framework',

// To check if variable is defined use the [isset()] function
$defined1 = isset($object);  // true
$defined2 = isset($object3); // false

// Additional types include Resources such as a file, and callback functions.

PHP Syntax - Strings

// Similar to other languages such as JavaScript, Python, and Ruby,
// strings in PHP can be either single-quoted or double-quoted.
$value = 'Single Quoted String';
$value = "Double Quoted String";

// To combine or concatenate strings use the dot character [.]:
$greeting = 'Hello ' . 'World';

// Spaces are not required between the [.] and the other variables:
$greeting = 'Hello '.'World';

// You can append to a string using the [.=] operator:
$greeting = 'Hello';
$greeting .= ' World';

// Similar to Python and Ruby, double-quote strings expand variables
// for string interpolation. This prints 'Hello World':
$name = 'World';
$greeting = "Hello ${name}";

// Multi-line strings use [<<<] followed by a programmer-defined identifier
// and end the string the same identifier starting on the code line followed
// by [;]. In this example the identifier is [EOD] for end-of-data. Multiline
// strings using this syntax support string interpolation.
$multiline1 = <<<EOD

// When using ['] characters is similar to using single-quotated strings
// so there is no string interpolation. The above example prints 'World'
// instead of '${name}' while this version prints '${name}'.
$multiline2 = <<<'EOD'

// Common String Functions using this string:
$value = ' abcdefgh ';

// String Length and Trim
$len = strlen($value);        // 10
$len2 = strlen(trim($value)); // 8

// String Search, often PHP functions return mixed data types.
// [strpos()] and [stripos()] are good examples. If the string
// is found an integer with the position is returned otherwise
// a boolean value of false is returned.
$pos = stripos($value, 'DEF'); // Case-insenstive = 4
$pos2 = strpos($value, 'DEF'); // Case-Senstive = false

// Split to an Array and Join an Array to a String.
// Rather than using [split()/join()] PHP uses [explode/implode()].
$value = '123,456,789';
$array = explode(',', $value);
$string = implode('_', $array);

// Replace
$text = 'Blue and Red';
$search = 'Red';
$replace = 'Green';
$new_value = str_replace($search, $replace, $text);

// Internally in PHP strings are implemented as an array of bytes so if you
// work with binary files or data you use the string data type. This can
// present a problem though if you need to calculate the length of a Unicode
// String for a user, find the character position, etc. To support different
// encodings PHP includes Multibyte String Functions. In general they have the
// same name and params as other string functions but are prefixed with [mb_*].
$unicode = '测试';
$ulen = strlen($unicode);     // 6
$ulen2 = mb_strlen($unicode); // 2

PHP Syntax - Logic Statements

// This example outputs data to the client as it is evaluated:
//    var_dump() = PHP function to print a variable and the data type.
//    echo "\n"  = Output a new line for formatting.
$number = 5;

// Basic [if] Statement
//     Prints: '[Number equals 5]'
if ($number === 5) {
    echo '[Number equals 5]';
} else {
    echo '[Number does not equal 5]';

// [if ... else]. The example aslo shows using the not operator [!].
//     Prints: '[Number is positive]'
if (!is_int($number)) {
    echo '[Number is not a integer]';
} elseif ($number < 0) {
    echo '[Number is negative]';
} else {
    echo '[Number is positive]';

// Ternary Expression: (expression ? true : false)
//     Prints: [Number is even: no]
$is_even = ($number % 2 === 0 ? 'yes' : 'no');
echo "[Number is even: ${is_even}]";

// The [if] statement can be used to evaluate "truthy" values for
// other data types. The 3 statements below all evaluate to false
// because the values are empty or zero.

$empty_array = array();
if ($empty_array) {
    echo '[Array has data]';
} else {
    echo '[Array is empty]';

$empty_string = '';
if ($empty_array) {
    echo '[String has data]';
} else {
    echo '[String is empty]';

$zero = 0;
if ($zero) {
    echo '[Number is not Zero]';
} else {
    echo '[Number is Zero]';

// It's possible to exclude the middle expression when using the ternary
// operator '?:' (expression ?: default). This is known as the Elvis operator
// and returns either the result of the first expression if it evaluates
// as a "truthy" value or the 2nd expression (default value).

// Prints:
//     [Elvis Operator: Default]
$value = ($empty_string ?: 'Default');
echo "[Elvis Operator: ${value}]";

// Prints:
//     [Elvis Operator: 3]
$value = ((1 + 2) ?: 'Enter Value');
echo "[Elvis Operator: ${value}]";

// Equal [==] vs. Identical (Strict Mode) [===]
// PHP is similar to JavaScript when comparing on data types.

// These expressions all evalute to [true] because
// the data type does not have to match exactly.
echo "\n";
var_dump(1 == true);
var_dump(0 == '');
var_dump(0 == 'a');
var_dump('1' == '01');

// These expressions all evalute to [false] because
// the data type has to match exactly.
echo "\n";
var_dump(1 === true);
var_dump(0 === '');
var_dump(0 === 'a');
var_dump('1' === '01');

// Not Equal [!=] vs. Not Identical [!==]:
echo "\n";
var_dump(0 != '');  // false
var_dump(0 !== ''); // true

// Logical Operators:
echo "\n";
var_dump(true && true);   // true
var_dump(false && false); // false
var_dump(false || true);  // true

// Arrays can be easily compared in PHP
echo "\n";
$array1 = [1, 2, 3];
$array2 = [1, 2, 3];
$array3 = [1, 2, 3, 4];
var_dump($array1 === $array2); // true
var_dump($array1 === $array3); // false

// Switch Statement
// Just like the [if] statement the syntax for [switch] is similar
// to C style languages such as C and JavaScript so the same
// fallthrough rules apply.
// This example prints the season name from 4-season calendar
// in the Northern Hemisphere based on the current month.

echo "\n";
$month = date('F');

switch ($month) {
    case 'March':
    case 'April':
    case 'May':
        echo 'Spring';
    case 'June':
    case 'July':
    case 'August':
        echo 'Summer';
    case 'September':
    case 'October':
    case 'November':
        echo 'Fall (Autumn)';
    case 'December':
    case 'January':
    case 'February':
        echo 'Winter';
        echo 'Error';

PHP Syntax - Loops

// Just like the logic demo this example also outputs data as it is evaluated.

// Define arrays with the largest cities in the world (by urban area)
$cities = [
    'Tokyo', 'São Paulo', 'Jakarta', 'Seoul', 'Manila',
    'New York City', 'Shanghai', 'Cairo', 'Delhi',

$cities_population = [
    'Tokyo'     => '36,923,000',
    'São Paulo' => '36,842,102',
    'Jakarta'   => '30,075,310',
    'Seoul'     => '25,520,000',
    'Manila'    => '24,123,000',
    'New York'  => '23,689,255',
    'Shanghai'  => '23,416,000',
    'Cairo'     => '22,439,541',
    'Delhi'     => '21,753,486',

echo 'Largest Cities in the World' . "\n";
echo str_repeat('-', 40) . "\n";

// Loop through the list of cities using the [foreach] loop.
//     foreach (array as item)
foreach ($cities as $city) {
    echo $city;
    echo "\n";
echo "\n";

// Loop through a Dictionary or Associative Array using [foreach]
//     foreach (array as key => value)
foreach ($cities_population as $city => $population) {
    echo $city . ' = ' . $population;
    echo "\n";
echo "\n";

// [for] loop using C style syntax, this prints 0...9 on separate lines
for ($n = 0; $n < 10; $n++) {
    echo $n;
    echo "\n";
echo "\n";

// [while] and [do-while] loops also use C style syntax so they will be familiar
// to JavaScript developers. [continue] and [break] also work as expected.

// Prints even numbers between 0 and 8
$n = 0;
while ($n < 10) {
    if ($n % 2 !== 0) {

    echo $n;
    echo "\n";
echo "\n";

// Prints 0...4
$n = 0;
do {
    if ($n === 5) {

    echo $n;
    echo "\n";
} while ($n < 10);

PHP Syntax - Functions

// Defining and calling functions in PHP is similar to other C style languages.
// While functions are easily defined in PHP most often popular Frameworks and
// PHP projects define classes instead of functions. PHP however has many
// built-in functions that are used in development.
function add($x, $y) {
    return $x + $y;

// Optional parameters an be by specifing a default value after the variable.
function increment($x, $y = 1) {
    return $x += $y;

// Callback functions can be defined and set to a variable just as you would
// use in JavaScript.
$subtract = function($x, $y) {
    return $x - $y;

// This code calls the above functions and prints "2"
$x = 1;
$y = 2;
$z = add($x, $y);      // returns 3
$z = increment($z);    // returns 4
$z = increment($z, 2); // returns 6
$z = $subtract($z, 4); // returns 2
echo $z;
echo '<br>';

// Unlike JavaScript PHP functions do not have access to variables in the
// parent scope. The [use] keyword can be used to pass variables from the
// parent scope. When using this syntax and setting [$x] in the called function
// [$x] does not get set from the parent scope so this code prints "1".
$scope_test = function() use ($x) {
    $x = 123;
echo $x;
echo '<br>';

// This version is similar to the above version however the variable [$x] is
// passed by-reference using the [&] operator. This version will print "123"
// because [$x] gets modified.
$scope_test = function() use (&$x) {
    $x = 123;
echo $x;
echo '<br>';

PHP Syntax - Classes and Objects

// Full details of how to define and use classes is beyond the scope of this
// quick reference page however the basic syntax is shown below which can
// help you get started.

class Math
    // Define a Member Variable
    public $value = 0;

    // Define a Class Constructor with an Optional Parameter.
    // Defining [__construct] is optional.
    public function __construct($number = 0)
        $this->value = $number;
        echo 'Classed Created with Value: ' . $number . '<br>';

    // Define a Class Destructor
    public function __destruct()
        echo 'Classed Destroyed<br><br>';

    // Public function that returns the object instance [$this]
    public function add($number) {
        $this->value += $number;
        return $this;

    // Function with no parameter or return value
    public function show()
        echo 'Value: ' . $this->value . '<br>';

// Prints:
Classed Created with Value: 0
Value: 3
Classed Destroyed
$math = new Math();
$math = null;

// Prints:
Classed Created with Value: 10
Value: 15
$math = new Math(10);

// Read from a member variable:
$value = $math->value;
echo $value . '<br>';

PHP Syntax - Encoding - JSON, Base64, Base64-URL

// Create a Basic Object and Array for Encoding
$object = new \stdClass;
$object->string = 'Test';
$object->number = 123;
$object->bool = true;

$array = [
    'string' => 'Test',
    'number' => 123,
    'bool' => true,

// -------------------------------------------
// Encode and Decode JSON
// -------------------------------------------

// Since PHP Array's are used like a Dictionary or Hash, both examples print:
//     {"string":"Test","number":123,"bool":true}
$json = json_encode($object);
echo $json;
echo "\n";

$json = json_encode($array);
echo $json;
echo "\n\n";

// Use the 2nd Parameter for formatted JSON
$json = json_encode($object, JSON_PRETTY_PRINT);
echo $json;
echo "\n";

// Decode and print the object with details using [print_r()]:
$decoded = json_decode($json);
echo "\n";

// By default an objects are decoded as [stdClass] objects. To return
// an array instead pass [true] as the 2nd parameter.
$decoded = json_decode($json, true);
echo "\n";

// If there is an error decoding JSON data null will be returned.
// If you need to handle invalid JSON you can do so like this:
if ($decoded === null && json_last_error() !== JSON_ERROR_NONE) {
    throw new \Exception('Error decoding JSON Data: ' . json_last_error_msg());

// FastSitePHP includes a JSON helper class which throws exceptions on
// JSON errors instead of the default behavior of returning [false] or [null].
$json = \FastSitePHP\Encoding\Json::encode($object);
$decoded = \FastSitePHP\Encoding\Json::decode($json);

// Often though in most code simply calling [json_encode()] or [json_decode()]
// will be enough. By default PHP decodes large numbers as floats. If you
// want stricter decoding so they come in a strings then you can use additional
// options. This is how FastSitePHP's JSON class decodes as it is used in the
// JWT, Encryption, and SignedData classes. [JSON_BIGINT_AS_STRING] is not
// avaiable on PHP 5.3 so FastSitePHP uses compatible code.
$decoded = json_decode($json, true, 512, JSON_BIGINT_AS_STRING);

// -------------------------------------------
// Encode and Decode Base64
// -------------------------------------------

// Prints: "VGhpcyBpcyBhIHRlc3Q="
$data = 'This is a test';
$base64 = base64_encode($data);
echo $base64;
echo "\n";

// When decoding if there is an error then [false] is returned
$decoded = base64_decode($base64);
echo "\n\n";

// -------------------------------------------
// Encode and Decode Base64-URL Format
// -------------------------------------------

// PHP does not include built-in functions for Base64-URL format so
// FastSitePHP includes a helper class with static methods. They behave
// similar to the built-in functions [base64_encode()]  and [base64_decode()]
// so if there is an error then [false] is returned.

$base64url = \FastSitePHP\Encoding\Base64Url::encode($data);
echo $base64;
echo "\n";

$decoded = \FastSitePHP\Encoding\Base64Url::decode($base64url);
echo "\n";

PHP Syntax - Errors and Exceptions

// PHP uses both Errors that are triggered and Exceptions that are thrown.

// PHP handles errors a differently than many languages. For example in many
// languages a "divide by zero" error would either throw an Exception or be
// fatal and halt the program and in compiled languages an undefined variable
// would not allow the program to run. However when using PHP unless error
// reporting is set both of these errors would simply be ignored and the
// script could continue with unexpected results. This can make programming
// with PHP difficult at first if you are coming from another language.
// FastSitePHP makes things easy because it runs code in strict mode and
// converts errors to exceptions once [app->setup()] is called.

// To handle all errors and exceptions globally in PHP, four different functions
// have to be first set. These are automatically handled from [app->setup()]:
//   error_reporting()
//   set_exception_handler()
//   set_error_handler()
//   register_shutdown_function()

// In PHP [try...catch] logic is similar to many languages such as JavaScript:
try {
    throw new \Exception('Test');
} catch (\Exception $e) {
    echo $e->getMessage();
    echo '<br>';

// Variables can be checked if they might not exist.
// This code works and no error is triggered.
if (isset($x) === false) {
    echo 'Variable [$x] is not defined<br>';

// Uncommenting the lines below will trigger different types of errors.
// When using PHP default development settings the errors will often cause
// an error message in the middle of the code and code after will still
// be executed.
// echo $x;     // [E_NOTICE]  = "Undefined variable: x"
// echo 1 / 0;  // [E_WARNING] = "Division by zero"

// FastSitePHP converts Errors to Exceptions so they can be caught.
try {
    echo $x;
} catch (\Exception $e) {
    echo $e->getMessage();
    echo '<br>';

try {
    echo 1 / 0;
} catch (\Exception $e) {
    echo $e->getMessage();
    echo '<br>';

Hello World with FastSitePHP

// Only two files are required to run FastSitePHP and they can
// be in the same directory as [index.php] or the contents can
// be embedded in the main php page.
require 'Application.php';
require 'Route.php';

// Create the Application Object and optionally setup
// Error Handling and a Timezone.
$app = new FastSitePHP\Application();

// Define the 'Hello World' default route
$app->get('/', function() {
    return 'Hello World!';

// Return a JSON Response by returning an Object or an Array
$app->get('/json', function() {
    return ['Hello' => 'World'];

// For all other requests, return the URL as a plain text response.
// The [use] keyword makes the [$app] variable available to the function.
$app->get('/*', function() use ($app) {
    $app->header('Content-Type', 'text/plain');
    return $app->requestedPath();

// Run the App

Application Object - Defining Basic Routes

// The Application Object is the key Object in FastSitePHP. It is used to
// define routes, provide request info, render templates, send the response,
// and more. If you are using a copy of this site or a starter site the
// Application Object will be available as the variable [$app] and routes
// are defined in the page [app.php].

// Basic Route
// Send an HTML Response when either '/about' or '/about/' is requested
$app->get('/about', function() {
    return '<h1>About Page</h1>';

// By default URL's are case-sensitive however this can be
// turned off and then '/ABOUT' would match the above route.
$app->case_sensitive_urls = false;

// If setting URL strict mode then the above URL would only match
// to '/about' and '/about/' would have to be explicitly defined.
$app->strict_url_mode = true;
$app->get('/about/', function() {
    return '<h1>About Directory</h1>';

// The about call using [get()] matches only 'GET' requests. If you would like
// to handle both 'GET' and 'POST' or other methods with the same route you
// can define the route using the [route()] function then check the if there is
// data sent with the request as shown below. The [route()] function will accept
// all request methods.
$app->route('/form', function() {
    if ($_POST) {
        // Handle posted form data
    // Handle GET request, return rendered template, etc

// In addition to GET Requests you can handle [ POST, PUT, PATH, and DELETE]
// Requests using named functions.
$app->get('/method', function() { return 'get()'; });
$app->post('/method', function() { return 'post()'; });
$app->put('/method', function() { return 'put()'; });
$app->patch('/method', function() { return 'patch()'; });
$app->delete('/method', function() { return 'delete()'; });

// The same URL can be defined multiple times and the first matching response
// will stop additional routes from being evaluated. In this example the route
// '/example' will return the text 'Example 2'.
$app->get('/example', function() { return null; });
$app->get('/example', function() { return 'Example 2'; });
$app->get('/example', function() { return 'Example 3'; });

// In addition to returning a response you can also simply output a response
// using [echo] or other functions.
$app->get('/echo-response', function() {
    echo 'Output';

Define a Route with a Parameter

// Send a response 'Hello FastSitePHP!' for the URL '/hello/FastSitePHP'.
// The ':name' text in the route pattern defines a parameter for the route
// because it starts with the ':' character.
$app->get('/hello/:name', function($name) {
    return 'Hello ' . $name;

Define a Route with an Optional Parameter

// Send a response 'Hello World!' for the URL '/hello' or in the case of the
// optional [name] variable safely escape and return a message with the name.
// The [use] keyword makes the [$app] variable available to the function
// and the question mark in the URL pattern ':name?' makes the variable optional.
$app->get('/hello/:name?', function($name = 'World') use ($app) {
    return 'Hello ' . $app->escape($name) . '!';

// In addition to optional parameters a wildcard character '*' can be used at
// the end of the URL to handle all requests that match the start of the URL.
// In this example the following two URL's would both be matched.
//     '/hello/world'
//     '/hello/page1/page2/page3'
$app->get('/hello/*', function() use ($app) {
    $app->header('Content-Type', 'text/plain');
    return $app->requestedPath();

Define a Route that maps to a Controller Class

// Defining routes with callback functions allows for fast prototyping
// and works well when minimal logic is used. As code grows in size it
// can be organized into controller classes.

// Optionally specify the Controller Class Root Namespace. When using this if a
// class 'Examples' is created then it will map to 'App\Controllers\Examples'.
$app->controller_root = 'App\Controllers';

// Similar to [controller_root] is [middleware_root] which applies to
// [Route->filter()] and [$app->mount()] functions.
$app->middleware_root = 'App\Middleware';

// The two format options are 'class' and 'class.method'. When using only
// class name then the route function [route(), get(), post(),  put(), etc]
// will be used for the method name of the matching controller.
$app->get('/:lang/examples', 'Examples');
$app->get('/:lang/examples/:page', 'Examples.getExample');

// Controller Class Example
class Examples
    public function get(Application $app, $lang) { }
    public function getExample(Application $app, $lang, $page) { }

// In addition to organizing code into controller classes you can also separate
// routes into separate files using the [mount()] function. The mount function
// will load a file in the same directory only if the starting part of the
// Requested URL matches the Mount URL. An optional 3rd parameter accepts a
// callback function or string of 'Class.method' and if false is returned
// then the file won't be loaded.
$app->mount('/data/', 'routes-data.php');
$app->mount('/secure/', 'routes-secure.php', function() {
    // Logic ...
    return false;
$app->mount('/sysinfo/', 'routes-secure.php', 'Env.isLocalhost');

Route Parameter Validation

// The Application Object has a [param()] function which can be used to
// validate and convert URL parameters to a specific format such as a number.

// The function is defined as:
//     param($name, $validation, $converter = null)

// Parameters:
//     Validation = ['any', 'int', 'float', 'bool'], a valid regular expression,
//         or a Closure/Callback function. When using 'int|float|bool' the data
//         type will automatically be converted.
//     Convertor = ['int', 'float', 'bool'] or a Closure/Callback function.

// Basic Example
//     '/product/123' = Match and [$product_id] will be an integer
//     '/product/abc' = 404 Page Not Found
$app->param(':product_id', 'int');
$app->get('/product/:product_id', function($product_id) {

// Additional Examples of Defining Parameter Rules. For more see full
// documentation and other examples.

$range_param = function($value) {
    $num = (int)$value;
    if ($num >= 5 && $num <= 10) {
        return true;
    } else {
        return false;

    ->param(':range1', $range_param)
    ->param(':range2', $range_param, 'int')
    ->param(':range3', $range_param, function($value) {
        return (int)$value;

$app->param(':float', 'float');
$app->param(':bool', 'any', 'bool');

$app->param(':regex1', '/^\d+$/');
$app->param(':regex2', '/^[a-zA-Z]*$/');

Use Route Filters

// Routes can have custom filter functions assigned to them to run specific
// code if a route is matched, perform validation, or another task required
// by your site. Filter functions only run if the route is matched to the
// requested URL.

// Define some callback/closure functions
$text_response = function() use ($app) {
    $app->header('Content-Type', 'text/plain');
$is_authenticated = function() {
    // Check User Permissions ...
    return true;

// When routes are created [get(), route(), post(), etc] the created route
// is returned so you can call [filter()] after defining the route.
// This page will be returned a Plain Text page because the filter function
// sets the Response Header and returned no value.
$app->get('/text-page', function($name) {
    return 'Hello';

// A route can have multiple filters and for clarity you may want to put
// filter functions on separate lines. This page will only be called if
// [$is_authenticated] returns [true] and it will also be a text response.
$app->get('/secure-text-page', function($name) {
    return 'Hello ' . $name;

// The [filter()] function also accepts a string representing
// a class and method in the format of 'Class.method'.
$app->get('/phpinfo', function($name) {

// When using string filters you can specify a root namespace
// for the classes using the App property [middleware_root].
$app->middleware_root = 'App\Middleware';

Application Object - Basic Request Info

// Many frameworks require special configuration values in order to handle
// requests. FastSitePHP figures this out automatically and provides several
// functions in the Application Object to return basic request info.

// If your site does not use a proxy server such as load balancer then these
// functions can be used for building URL's or other app needs. If your site
// uses a load balancer with custom host headers then you would want to use
// the request object to obtain the root url.

// Root or Base URL for the Site. This is often needed to build full path
// URL's on web pages.
// Examples:
//     # [index.php] specified in the URL
//     Request:
//     Returns:
//     # [index.php] Located in Root Folder
//     Request:
//     Returns:
//     # [index.php] Located under [site1]
//     Request:
//     Returns:
$root_url = $app->rootUrl();

// Root Directory for the Site. Often needed to build URL's for Static
// Resources such as CSS or JavaScript files.
//     Request:
//     Returns:
$root_dir = $app->rootDir();

// Get the Requested URL which exits after the Root URL. This will be
// based on where the [index.php] or entry PHP file is located.
//     Request:
//     Returns: '/test/test'
// In the above example both '/test/test/' and '/test/test' return
// '/test/test' when using the default property [$app->strict_url_mode = false]
// otherwise the exact URL would be returned.
$requested_path = $app->requestedPath();

// Example usage for building URL's:
$site_css = $app->rootDir() . 'css/site.css';
$docs_link = $app->rootUrl() . '/documents';
// <link href="{{ $site_css }}" rel="stylesheet" />
// <a href="{{ $docs_link }}">Documents</a>

Dynamic Functions and Lazy Loading Properties

// FastSitePHP allows for the Application Object to be assigned dynamic
// functions and lazy loading properties. This allows for custom functions
// and resources shared by many routes to be organized under a global object
// and can allow for simple and clear dependancy injection.

// JavaScript Example - This works to add a function dynamically to an object:
// var obj = {};
// obj.test = function() { alert('test'); };
// obj.test();

// PHP Example - The function can be assigned to a property however if called
// an error is triggered - 'Call to undefined method ...'.
$obj = new \stdClass;
$obj->test = function() { echo 'test'; };
// $obj->test();

// When using FastSitePHP's Application object you can simply assign an use
// functions just like in JavaScript or Ruby.
$app->test = function() { echo 'test'; };

// The native PHP function [method_exists()] will not work for custom functions
// so to check if either a built-in or custom App method exists use this.
$exists = $app->methodExists('test');

// The [lazyLoad()] function accepts a property name and callback function.
// It creates the object as a property of the app only if used. This is ideal
// for working with sites where some pages use a resource and some do not.
$app->lazyLoad('db', function() {
    return $pdo = new \PDO('sqlite::memory:');

// [$app->db] gets set here on first use.
$sql = 'CREATE TABLE test (id INTEGER PRIMARY KEY, test)';

// [$app->db] now works as a standard property as it was previously called.
$sql = 'SELECT * FROM sqlite_master';
$records = $app->db->query($sql)->fetchAll(\PDO::FETCH_ASSOC);

Application Events

// Just like the Hello World Demo this code can be copied to a separate
// [index.php] or other file and then tested.

// There are 5 Application callback events:
//     before(), beforeSend(), after(), notFound(), and error()
// They can be used to handle custom logic while the application is running.

// Load Files
require 'Application.php';
require 'Route.php';
// Or use an Autoloader:
// require '../../vendor/autoload.php';

// Create and Setup App Object
$app = new FastSitePHP\Application();

// ------------------------------------------------------------------
// Define Events
// ------------------------------------------------------------------

// [Before] Events will be called from the [run()] function prior to any routes
// being matched. All Event functions can be called multiple times and will
// run in order that they are defined.
$app->before(function() use ($app) {
    $app->content = '[before1]';
$app->before(function() use ($app) {
    $app->content .= '[before2]'; // Append

// [Before Send] Events will be called from the [run()] function after
// a route has been matched to the requested resource. Functions passed
// to the [beforeSend()] function should be defined as [function($content)]
// and they must return a response otherwise a 404 'Not found' response will
// be sent to the client.
$app->beforeSend(function($content) {
    return $content . '[beforeSend]';

// [Not Found] Events will be called from the [run()] function after all
// routes have been checked with no routes matching the requested resource.
// Functions passed to the [notFound()] function take no parameters and
// if they return a response then it be handled as a standard route and
// will call any defined [beforeSend()] functions afterwards.
$app->notFound(function() use ($app) {
    return $app->content . '[notFound]';

// [Error] Events will be triggered if an unhandled Exception is thrown,
// an error is triggered, or a route is not matched and would trigger a
// 404 or 405 response. This function can be used to log errors or handle
// the response with a custom error. If [exit()] is not called then the
// specified  or standard FastSitePHP error template will be rendered.
$app->error(function($response_code, $e) use ($app) {
    // $response_code = [null, 404, 405, or 500]
    // $e = [null, Exception, or Throwable]
    if ($app->requestedPath() === '/error-test-1') {
        echo $app->content . '[Custom Error]';

// [After] Events will be called from the [run()] function after the response
// has been sent to the client. Functions passed to the [after()] function
// should be defined as [function($content)]; the [$content] parameter defined
// in the callback is the contents of the response that was sent to the client
// and it cannot be modified from here. The only way that [after()]  functions
// will not get called is if there script is terminated early from  PHP's
// [exit()] statement or if error handling is not setup and an error occurs.
$app->after(function($content) {
    echo '[after]';

// ------------------------------------------------------------------
// Define Routes
// ------------------------------------------------------------------

// This response will output the following:
//     [before1][before2][page][beforeSend][after]
$app->get('/', function() use ($app) {
    return $app->content . '[page]';

// Call URL '/test' and see the following:
//     [before1][before2][notFound][beforeSend][after]

// This response will output the following:
//    [before1][before2][Custom Error]
$app->get('/error-test-1', function() {
    throw new \Exception('Error Test 1');

// Display's Standard Error Page with [after] showing at very bottom

// ------------------------------------------------------------------
// Run the App
// ------------------------------------------------------------------

PHP Template Example

// This is the contents of the file [template.php] which is shown as an example
// on this page.  When calling [render()] the Application Object is passed as
// [$app] which allows for [escape()] and other functions to be used. In addition
// to the standard [if (expression) { code }] sytnax PHP provides an alternative
// syntax for control structures when using templates [if (expr): (code) endif].
// PHP templates are high performance and use very little memory however the
// syntax can be considered more verbose than many modern template formats. If
// you prefer to use a different template format there are many widely used and
// high quality template engines for PHP that can be intergrated with FastSitePHP.

<h1><?= $app->escape($page_title) ?></h1>
<?php if (count($list) === 0): ?>
    <p>No Records found</p>
<?php else: ?>
        <?php foreach ($list as $item): ?>
            <li><?= $app->escape($item) ?></li>
        <?php endforeach ?>
<?php endif ?>
<p><?= $app->escape($year) ?></p>

// $app->error_template = 'error.php'; // For 500 Responses
// $app->not_found_template = '404.php'; // For 404 and 405 Responses

// Optionally show detailed errors when using the default error

$app->engine(function($file, array $data = null) {
    $dir = __DIR__ . '/views/';
    $options = [
        'cache' => dirname(__FILE__).'/tmp/cache/mustache',

HTTP Request Object - Reading Query Strings, Form Fields, and Cookies

// The request object can be used obtain info from the client for an
// HTTP request. This includes query strings, form fields, cookies,
// headers, and more. The request object also contains functions to
// sanitize “clean” and safely read client info.

// Without using a Framework, Query Strings, Form Variables and other
// User Input can be read through PHP Superglobals [$_GET, $_POST, etc].
// Example, read the Query String Field [number]:
$number = $_GET['number'];

// If the query string [type] does not exist then the above code
// would throw an exception so to safely get the value you can first
// check if it is set.
$number = (isset($_GET['number']) ? $_GET['number'] : null);

// An additional line of PHP code can be used to force a numeric value:
$number = (int)$number;

// The Request object can be used instead to safely read the values, convert
// data types, etc. To use the Request object simply create one:
$req = new \FastSitePHP\Web\Request();

// You can then read query strings by name without including safety logic:
$number = $req->queryString('number');

// An optional 2nd parameter can be used to convert to a specific data type.
// In this example the value will be converted to an interger if it is valid
// otherwise null will be returned.
$number = $req->queryString('number', 'int?');

// In addition to [queryString()] functions [form()] and [cookie()] can be
// used in the same manner.
$value  = $req->form('field');
$cookie = $req->cookie('name');

// The Request object also contains a helper function to handle user input
// or objects where a value may or may not exist. This can be used to prevent
// errors when reading complex JSON object and to to sanitize “clean” data from
// any object or array.
// Function Definititon:
//     value($data, $key, $format = 'value?', $max_length = null)
// Data Example:
//     $_POST['input1'] = 'test';
//     $_POST['input2'] = '123.456';
//     $_POST['checkbox1'] = 'on';
//     $json = [
//         'app' => 'FastSitePHP',
//         'strProp' => 'abc',
//         'numProp' => '123',
//         'items' => [ ['name' => 'item1'], ['name' => 'item2'] ],'
//    ];
// Function Examples:
//    'test'        = $req->value($_POST, 'input1');
//    // Truncate the string to 2 characters:
//    'te'          = $req->value($_POST, 'input1',    'string', 2);
//    123.456       = $req->value($_POST, 'input2',    'float');
//    ''            = $req->value($_POST, 'missing',   'string'); // Missing
//    1             = $req->value($_POST, 'checkbox1', 'checkbox');
//    0             = $req->value($_POST, 'checkbox2', 'checkbox'); // Missing
//    true          = $req->value($_POST, 'checkbox1', 'bool');
//    'FastSitePHP' = $req->value($json,  'app');
//    'abc'         = $req->value($json,  'strProp',   'string?');
//    0             = $req->value($json,  'strProp',   'int');  // Invalid Int
//    null          = $req->value($json,  'strProp',   'int?'); // Invalid Int
//    123           = $req->value($json,  'numProp',   'int');
//    'item1'       = $req->value($json,  ['items', 0, 'name']);
//    'item2'       = $req->value($json,  ['items', 1, 'name']);
//    null          = $req->value($json,  ['items', 2, 'name']); // Missing
// See full documentation for more. If you need full validation rather than
// data cleaning see the [\FastSitePHP\Data\Validator] class.

HTTP Request Object - Request JSON and Content

// Create the Request Object
$req = new \FastSitePHP\Web\Request();

// Get the Request Content Type. This is a helper field that returns
// a simple value based on the 'Content-Type' header:
//     'json'      = 'application/json'
//     'form'      = 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded'
//     'xml'       = 'text/xml' or 'application/xml'
//     'text'      = 'text/plain'
//     'form-data' = 'multipart/form-data'
// If different the raw header value will be returned and if the header
// is not defined then [null] will be returned.
$type = $req->contentType();

// The Request body/content can be read from [content()]. If the Request Type
// is JSON then the object will be parsed and an object/array will be returned.
// If [contentType() === 'form'] then an array will be returned otherwise the
// body/content is returned as a string. In PHP a string can also be used for
// binary data as a string is simply array of bytes.
$body = $req->content();

// The [value()] function can be used to safely read nested values from a
// submitted JSON object. See other examples and docs for more on using the
// [value() function.
$value = $req->value($body,  ['items', 0, 'name']);

HTTP Request Object - Header Fields

// Create the Request Object
$req = new \FastSitePHP\Web\Request();

// Reading Common Header Fields can be done through functions:
$origin = $req->origin();
$userAgent = $req->userAgent();
$referrer = $req->referrer();
$client_ip = $req->clientIp();
$protocol = $req->protocol();
$host = $req->host();
$port = $req->port();

// When using functions with 'Accept' Headers an array of data is returned,
// and an optional parameter can be passed to return true or false.
$accept_encoding = $req->acceptEncoding();
$accept_language = $req->acceptLanguage();

// Example:
//    'Accept-Language' Header Value = 'ru-RU,ru;q=0.8,en-US;q=0.6,en;q=0.4'
// Returns:
//    [
//        ['value' => 'ru-RU', 'quality' => null],
//        ['value' => 'ru',    'quality' => 0.8],
//        ['value' => 'en-US', 'quality' => 0.6],
//        ['value' => 'en',    'quality' => 0.4],
//    ];

$accept_en = $req->acceptLanguage('en'); // true
$accept_de = $req->acceptLanguage('de'); // false

// Any header can be read when using the [header()] function:
$content_type = $req->header('Content-Type');
$user_agent = $req->header('User-Agent');

// Header Keys are Case-insensitive so the following all return the same value:
$content_type = $req->header('content-type');
$content_type = $req->header('CONTENT-TYPE');
$content_type = $req->header('Content-Type');

// All headers can be read from the [headers()] function:
$headers = $req->headers();

HTTP Request Object - Proxy Header Fields

// Create the Request Object
$req = new \FastSitePHP\Web\Request();

// Request Proxy Headers are used for key fields such as client IP when a
// web server sites behind a “proxy” server on a local network, for example
// a load balancer. Reading the values correctly is important for security,
// however in general with any programming language or framework reading proxy
// headers if often difficult and requires extra config. FastSitePHP makes
// the task easy with no config required.

// For example, simply reading the Client IP of the request can be done
// by reading the value of REMOTE_ADDR.
$client_ip = $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];

// If the load balancer is configured to provide the Client IP it will
// usually be one of the following Request Headers [X-Forwarded-For,
// Client-Ip, or Forwarded]. However since the end user can send data with
// the Request Header it must be read correctly. The standardized header
// [Forwarded] has a format like this:
//     'for=, for="[2001:db8:cafe::17]";proto=http;by='
// While non-standard but widely used headers such as [X-Forwarded-For] use
// this format:
//     'client-ip1, client-ip2, proxy1, proxy2'
// FastSitePHP handles both formats.

// For example assume the load balancer is at '', '' is used
// for additional content filtering, and [X-Forwarded-For] came in with the
// the following value:
//     [REMOTE_ADDR]      =   ''
//     [X-Forwarded-For]  =   "' OR '1'='1 --,,,"
// In this example, the following was submitted:
//     - Client - A SQL Injection String of "' OR '1'='1 --"
//     - Client - A localhost IP []
//     - Client - Actual IP []
//     - Server -

// When simply reading Client IP without any parameters the IP of the load
// balancer is returned for this example which is ''.
$client_ip = $req->clientIp();

// Then when using the default 'from proxy' setting the correct User IP
// value of '' is returned. If no proxy server is used then the
// default settings of 'from proxy' are safe to call.
$user_ip = $req->clientIp('from proxy');

// When using proxies an optional 2nd parameter of [$trusted_proxies] is
// avaiable. This defaults to the string 'trust local', however an array
// of specific IP or IP Ranges (CIDR format) can be used for more specific
// filtering. Additionally the first parameter [$option] can also be
// be modified to read from different Request Headers.
$user_ip = $req->clientIp('from proxy', 'trust local');

// In addition to Client IP, proxy values can also be read for
// [Protocol, Host, and Port]:
$portocal = $req->protocol('from proxy'); // 'http' or 'https'
$host = $req->host('from proxy');
$port = $req->port('from proxy');

Request Object - Server Info

// The Request Object can return the Server IP and has a helper function
// [isLocal()] that returns true only if both the requesting client and
// the web server are on localhost ['' or '::1']. In certain apps
// you may want to enable certain features for development or local work
// and these functions help with that.
$req = new \FastSitePHP\Web\Request();
$server_ip = $req->serverIp();
$is_local  = $req->isLocal();

// NOTE - the Web Server IP is often different than than the actual
// Network IP. To obtain the network IP (location of the server) use
// the Networking Config Object instead:
$config = new \FastSitePHP\Net\Config();
$net_ip = $config->networkIp();

Response - Content, Status Codes, Headers, Cookies, and Files

// By default when a string is returned in a route the server returns an
// HTML response. Without creating a Response Object, the Application Object
// can be used to specify a different 'Content-Type' Header which is what
// Browsers and HTTP Clients use to determine how to handle the response.
$app->get('/app-text-response', function() use ($app) {
    $app->header('Content-Type', 'text/plain');
    return 'Response using the Application Object';

// When using the Response Object [contentType()] and [content()]
// are the main functions to specify different content types.
$app->get('/text-response', function() {
    $res = new \FastSitePHP\Web\Response();
    return $res->contentType('text')->content('Text Response');

// When using the Response Object, properties are set through getter/setter
// functions and are chainable so they can be used on one line as shown
// above or separated to multiple lines as shown here.
$app->get('/text-response2', function() {
    return (new \FastSitePHP\Web\Response())
        ->content('Text Response 2');

// Using the Response Object
$res = new \FastSitePHP\Web\Response();

// Set the 'Content-Type' Header.
// The following 3 function calls all set the same value.
// The difference is that [contentType()] is a helper function which allows
// for short-hand values of [html, json, jsonp, text, css, javascript, xml].
$res->header('Content-Type', 'text/plain');

// Set Content
// For most content types use a string when setting [content()].

// For JSON Content either Objects and Arrays are used
$object = [
    'title' => 'Demo',
    'number' => '123',


// The helper [json()] function sets both [contentType()] and [content()]

// For formatted JSON set the option [JSON_PRETTY_PRINT] before sending
// the Response. By default [JSON_UNESCAPED_UNICODE] is used and JSON
// is minimized. Any constant used by [json_encode()] can be set here.

// Status Codes
// [$app] only supports [200, 201, 202, 204, 205, 404, and 500]
// and the Response Object allows and handles 304 Responses along
// with any other valid or custom status codes.

// A helper function [pageNotFound()] exists on the Application Object that
// can be used to send a 404 response along with default or custom 404 page.
$app->get('/document/:name', function($name) use ($app) {
    if ($name !== 'test') {
        return $app->pageNotFound();
    return 'Test';

// Specify a file for the response; the file specified will be streamed to the
// client and sent in a memory efficient manner so this function can be called
// on very large files with minimal performance impact for the server.
$file_path = __FILE__;

// Include specific Mime-Type along with Headers for Caching.
// Another topic on this page covers caching in more detail.
$res->file($file_path, 'text', 'etag:md5', 'private');

// Example File Usage
$app->get('/view-source-code', function() {
    $file_path = __FILE__;
    $res = new \FastSitePHP\Web\Response();
    return $res->file($file_path, 'download');

// Convert a file name or file type to a mime-type.
// File extensions that map to a Mime type with the function are:
//     Text: htm, html, txt, css, csv, md, markdown, jsx
//     Image: jpg, jpeg, png, gif, webp, svg, ico
//     Application: js, json, xml, pdf, woff
//     Video: mp4, webm, ogv, flv
//     Audio: mp3, weba, ogg, m4a, aac
// If a file type is not associated with a mime-type then a file
// download type of 'application/octet-stream' will be returned.
$mime_type = $res->fileTypeToMimeType('video.mp4');
$mime_type = $res->fileTypeToMimeType('mp4');

// Set Response Headers and Cookies

// Using the Application Object
$app->header('X-API-Key', 'App_1234');
$app->cookie('X-API-Key', 'App_1234');

// Or using the Response Object
$res->header('X-API-Key', 'Res_1234');
$res->cookie('X-API-Key', 'Res_1234');

// When creating a Response Object the Application Object can be
// passed and all App settings from [statusCode(), cors(), noCache(), headers(),
// cookies(), and json_options] will be passed to the Response Object.
$res = new \FastSitePHP\Web\Response($app);

HTTP Redirects

// HTTP Requests can be redirected using either the App or Response Object.
// When using the App Object and calling [redirect()] the PHP script ends
// immediately however any events defined from [after()] will be called.
// If your site uses Server-side Unit Testing you may want to use the response
// object which behaves as a regular route and doesn’t end script execution.

// User makes this request
$app->get('/page1', function() use ($app) {

// Or User makes this request
$app->get('/page2', function() {
    $res = new \FastSitePHP\Web\Response();
    return $res->redirect('page3');

// User will then see this URL and Response
$app->get('/page3', function() {
    return 'page3';

// The default Response Status Code is [302 'Found'] (Temporary Redirect),

Response - Cache Headers and Client-Side Caching

// Examples below show how to use Response Headers to control how a Browser
// or HTTP Client caches a Page or Resource.

// Prevent a Browser or Client from Caching a Page or File.
// Both the Application and the Response Objects have a [noCache()] function.
// Calling these functions will send 3 Response Headers to the client:
//     Cache-Control: no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate
//     Pragma: no-cache
//     Expires: -1

$res = new \FastSitePHP\Web\Response();

// If using certain Response Headers the Response Object will send a 304
// "Not Modified" Response depending on the Request Headers. 304 Responses
// are used by Browsers and other Clients to re-use previously fetched resources
// from their cached copy. This allows the user to see static resources more
// quickly and reduces the amount of traffic sent from the server.

// 'Cache-Control' Response Header. This header has different options to tell
// clients how they can cache a page. In this example only end users and not
// proxy servers can cache the response and they must re-validate it each time.
$res->cacheControl('private, must-revalidate');

// 'Expires' Response Header. This header is used to tell a client how long the
// content is valid for, however depending on 'Cache-Control' options this value
// may be ignored. Setting this value though does not trigger a 304 response and
// it's up to the browser or client how to handle it.
$res->expires('+1 month');

// 'ETag' Response Header (ETag is short for Entity Tag). An ETag represents a
// unique value for the content (often using a Hash). Browsers and Clients will
// send back an 'If-None-Match' Request Header with the version that they have
// cached and if it matches then the Response Object will send a 304 Response
// without the content since the browser can use the local copy.

// The [etag()] function also accepts the hash itself or a closure function.
$res->etag(function($content) {
    return sha256($content);

// The optional 2nd parameter accepts the ETag Type of either 'strong' or 'weak'.
// The default is 'weak' and that is recommended to avoid complex caching errors.
// If you need to use 'strong' ETags you would likey want to do extra testing.
$res->etag('hash:sha256', 'weak');

// 'Last-Modified' Response Header. If set and if the client sends back an
// 'If-Modified-Since' Request Header that matches then a 304 Response will
// be sent. When setting the value use a Unix Timestamp or String that can be
// parsed by the PHP Function [strtotime()].
$res->lastModified('2019-01-01 13:01:30');

// 'Vary' Response Header. The 'Vary' Response Header can be used to
// specify rules for HTTP Caching and also to provide content hints to
// Google and other Search Engines.
$res->vary('User-Agent, Referer');

// When sending a file as the response you can specify optional parameters
// [$cache_type and $cache_control]. Cache Type has 3 valid options shown
// below and Cache Control sets the [cacheControl()] function.

$content_type = 'text';

// When sending etags with [file()] and using either 'etag:md5' or 'etag:sha1'
// the hash is calculated each time. If you use ETags and have large files
// or frequently accessed files it would be a good idea to save the hash
// when the file is first created and set it through the [etag()] function.
$saved_hash = '0132456789abcdef';

Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS)

// CORS is commonly used in Web API's to share data from one site or
// domain with another domain (cross-orign resource). To include the
// 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' Header in your response use the [cors()]
// function. First make sure to set CORS headers from the App Object.

// If using the Response Object either pass the App Object to either
// the Response when it's created or it's [cors()] function.
$res = new \FastSitePHP\Web\Response($app);

// When passing a string the 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' is validated
// and set, however if you need to pass additional CORS use an array
// with the named headers instead.
    'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' => '',
    'Access-Control-Allow-Headers' => 'Authorization, Content-Type',
    'Access-Control-Allow-Credentials' => 'true',
    'Access-Control-Max-Age' => 86400,

// If calling a POST, PUT, DELETE or other Request Method you may need
// to handle OPTIONS requests. When using CORS and an OPTIONS request is
// processed, FastSitePHP will automatically set the header
// 'Access-Control-Allow-Methods' based on how routes are defined.
// To make sure OPTIONS requests are handled first create a function
// that sets the CORS value.
$cors = function () use ($app) {

// Assign the Filter Function to the routes that use CORS:
$app->post('/api-data', function() {
    return [ 'example' => 'POST' ];

$app->put('/api-data', function() {
    return [ 'example' => 'PUT' ];

// If you do not want to allow FastSitePHP to handle OPTIONS
// requests you can turn it off using this option:
$app->allow_options_requests = false;

Secure Cookies

// FastSitePHP allows for easy handling of Secure Cookies (Encrypted, Signed,
// or JWT). To use generate a secure key and save it with app config values.
// For more on config and crypto settings see other docs on this site.
// Strong keys are important for security and are required by default.

// $app->config['JWT_KEY'] = 'fkeVxeElykoCBzRTIUjxwTD9MIg71nXxOEQ...';

// The Request object has three functions that use the config keys to read
// and verify the secure cookies. If the cookies don't exist, are invalid,
// expired, etc then [null] will be returned.
$req = new \FastSitePHP\Web\Request();
$decrypted = $req->decryptedCookie('encrypted');
$verified = $req->verifiedCookie('signed');
$jwt = $req->jwtCookie('jwt');

$text = 'Request Time: ' . date(DATE_RFC2822);

$user = new \stdClass;
$user->id = 123;
$user->name = 'Admin';
$user->role = 'Admin';

// To send with the Response pass data to the corresponding response method.
// An optional 3rd parameter exits for an expiration time for both
// [signedCookie()] and [jwtCookie()] that defaults to 1 hour. This
// applies to the signed data or JWT and not the cookie itself.

Security - Hash and Verify Passwords

// Saving User Passwords using a one-way hashing function is important for
// secure applications. FastSitePHP’s Password class provides support for
// bcrypt (default) and Argon2.

// Example of a User Password, this value should not be saved to a database
$password = 'Password123';

// Create a Password Object
$pw = new \FastSitePHP\Security\Password();

// Hash the Password, this will create hash text that looks like this:
//   '$2y$10$cDpu8TnONBhpBFPEKTTccu/mYhSppqNLDNCfOYLfBWI3K/FzFgC2y'
// The value will change everytime and is safe to save to a database.
$hash = $pw->hash($password);

// Verify a Password - returns [true] or [false]
$verified = $pw->verify($password, $hash);

// Create a randomly generated password that is 12 characters in length
// and contains the following:
//   4 Uppercase Letters (A - Z)
//   4 Lowercase Letters (a - z)
//   2 Digits (0 - 9)
//   2 Special Characters (~, !, @, #, $, %, ^, &, *, ?, -, _)
$strong_password = $pw->generate();

// Specify a different BCrypt Cost of 12 instead of the default value 10
$hash2 = $pw->hash($password);
$verified2 = $pw->verify($password, $hash2);

// When using PHP 7.2 or later Argon2 can be used
if (PHP_VERSION_ID >= 70200) {
    $argon_hash = $pw->hash($password);

// Generate a new 3072-Bit RSA Key
$bits = 3072;
$key_pair = \FastSitePHP\Security\Crypto\PublicKey::generateRsaKeyPair($bits);
list($private_key2, $public_key2) = $key_pair;

Generate a string of random bytes

// Generate cryptographically secure pseudo-random bytes that
// are suitable for cryptographic use and secure applications.
$bytes = \FastSitePHP\Security\Crypto\Random::bytes(32);

// Convert the bytes to another format:
$hex_bytes = bin2hex($bytes);
$base64_bytes = base64_encode($bytes);

// When using PHP 7 or newer you can simply call [random_bytes()]
$bytes = random_bytes(32);

Security - CSRF using Session

// One call to a static function creates a token on GET Requests
// and validates it with Requests POST, PUT, DELETE, etc.
// If there is an error with the token then an exception is
// thrown which will cause 500 response with the error page.

// The token is assigned a locals value in the Application Object
$token = $app->locals['csrf_token'];

// This allows it to be used with templating code.
// Tokens are validated from [setup()] but not automatically added
// to forms so they must be added through templating or by code.
// <meta name="X-CSRF-Token" content="{{ $csrf_token }}">
// <input name="X-CSRF-Token" value="{{ $csrf_token }}">

// A good place to call this function is on route filters
// of pages that use authentication. Example:

// Create a filter function to assign to multiple routes
$csrf_session = function() use ($app) {

// Use the function when defining a route
$app->get('/form', function() use ($app) {
    return $app->render('form.php');

Security - Stateless CSRF

// Stateless CSRF Tokens are not stored in Session but rather use a crypto
// keyed-hash message authentication code (HMAC) to create and verify the token.

// A secure secret key is requird.
// The key would typically be saved with your app or in config.
$key = \FastSitePHP\Security\Web\CsrfStateless::generateKey();

// To use the Key it must be saved to either a config value or
// an environment variable before calling [setup()].
$app->config['CSRF_KEY'] = $key;
// putenv("CSRF_KEY=${key}");

// A unique identifier for the user is also required. This doesn't have
// to be secret and can be a simple as an numeric field in a database.
$user_id = 1;

// Setup and validate stateless CSRF Tokens
\FastSitePHP\Security\Web\CsrfStateless::setup($app, $user_id);

// Optionally add a timeout, this CSRF token will expire after 5 minutes
$expire_time = '+5 minutes';
\FastSitePHP\Security\Web\CsrfStateless::setup($app, $user_id, $expire_time);

// The same logic is used when using the [CsrfSession] class so
// the token is assigned a locals value in the Application Object
// which allows for it to be used with templating code.
$token = $app->locals['csrf_token'];
// <meta name="X-CSRF-Token" content="{{ $csrf_token }}">
// <input name="X-CSRF-Token" value="{{ $csrf_token }}">

// Also just like [CsrfSession] a good place to call [setup()]
// is on route filter functions.
$csrf = function() use ($app, $user_id) {
    \FastSitePHP\Security\Web\CsrfStateless::setup($app, $user_id);

$app->get('/form', function() use ($app) {
    return $app->render('form.php');

IP Addresses and Validation

// With FastSitePHP you can easily compare an IP Address to an accepted range
// of IP’s using CIDR Notation. CIDR Notation (Classless Inter-Domain Routing)
// is a compact representation of an IP address and its associated routing
// prefix. It is used regularly when working with digital networks and often
// needed for websites when handling IP Addresses for security.

// Check if IP Address '' is in the '' range
// Returns [true]
$matches = \FastSitePHP\Net\IP::cidr('', '');

// Check if IP Address '' is in the '' range
// Returns [false]
$matches2 = \FastSitePHP\Net\IP::cidr('', '');

// IPv6 is also supported
$matches3 = \FastSitePHP\Net\IP::cidr('fe80::/10', 'fe80::b091:1117:497a:9dc1');

// Get an array of Private Network Addresses in CIDR Notation
//   [
//     '',      // IPv4 localhost
//     '',       // IPv4 Private Network, RFC1918 24-bit block
//     '',    // IPv4 Private Network, RFC1918 20-bit block
//     '',   // IPv4 Private Network, RFC1918 16-bit block
//     '',   // IPv4 local-link
//     '::1/128',          // IPv6 localhost
//     'fc00::/7',         // IPv6 Unique local address (Private Network)
//     'fe80::/10',        // IPv6 local-link
//   ]
$private_addr = \FastSitePHP\Net\IP::privateNetworkAddresses();

// The array from [privateNetworkAddresses()] can be used with the [cidr()]
// function to check if an IP address is from a private network or from the
// public internet. The [cidr()] function accepts the CIDR Parameter as
// either an array or a string.
$matches4 = \FastSitePHP\Net\IP::cidr($private_addr, '');

// Get Info about a CIDR string when calling [cidr()] with only 1 parameter.
// This example returns the following:
//   [
//     'CIDR_Notation' => '',
//     'Address_Type' => 'IPv4',
//     'IP_Address' => '',
//     'Subnet_Mask' => '',

//     'Usable_Addresses_in_Network' => 254,
//  ]
$info = \FastSitePHP\Net\IP::cidr('');

// Example of CIDR Info when using IPv6:

//   ]
$info_ip6 = \FastSitePHP\Net\IP::cidr('fe80::b091:1117:497a:9dc1/48');

File System Security

// The FileSystem Security Class contains functions for validating files.

// Prevent Path Traversal Attacks by verifying if a file name exists in a
// specified directory. Path Traversal Attacks can happen if a user is
// allowed to specify a file on a file system through input and uses a
// pattern such as '/../' to obtain files from another directory.

// Examples:

// Assume both files exist and would return [true] from built-in function
// [is_file()]. [false] would be returned for the 2nd file when using
// [Security::dirContainsFile()].
$file1 = 'user_image.jpg';
$file2 = '../../index.php';
$file_exists_1 = \FastSitePHP\FileSystem\Security::dirContainsFile($dir, $file1);
$file_exists_2 = \FastSitePHP\FileSystem\Security::dirContainsFile($dir, $file2);

// The function [dirContainsFile()] only allows for files directly under the root
// folder so another function exists to search sub-directories [dirContainsPath()].
$path1 = 'icons/clipboard.svg'; // Returns [true]
$path2 = '../../app/index.php'; // Returns [false]
$path_exists_1 = \FastSitePHP\FileSystem\Security::dirContainsPath($dir, $path1);
$path_exists_2 = \FastSitePHP\FileSystem\Security::dirContainsPath($dir, $path2);

// [dirContainsPath()] contains an optional 3rd parameter [$type] which defaults
// to 'file' and allows for one of the following options ['file', 'dir', 'all'].
$path3 = 'icons';
$exists = \FastSitePHP\FileSystem\Security::dirContainsPath($dir, $path3, 'dir');

// [dirContainsDir()] can be used to check directories/folders.
$dir1 = 'icons';
$dir2 = '../../app';
$dir_exists_1 = \FastSitePHP\FileSystem\Security::dirContainsDir($dir, $file1);
$dir_exists_2 = \FastSitePHP\FileSystem\Security::dirContainsDir($dir, $file2);

// Validate Image Files
// The [fileIsValidImage()] function can be used to verify if image files
// created from user input are valid. For example a malicious user may try
// to rename a PHP script or executable file as an image and upload it to
// a site. Returns [true] if an image file [jpg, gif, png, webp, svg]
// is valid and the file's extension matches the image type.
$is_image = \FastSitePHP\FileSystem\Security::fileIsValidImage($image_file);

Security - Rate Limiting

// Rate Limit Class
$rate_limit = new \FastSitePHP\Security\Web\RateLimit();

// Using the RateLimit class requires and instance of

// In this example SQLite is used. When multiple servers are used behind
// a load balancer an in-memory cache db such as Redis can be used.
$file_path = sys_get_temp_dir() . '/ratelimit-cache.sqlite';
$storage = new \FastSitePHP\Data\KeyValue\SqliteStorage($file_path);

// There are 2 required options [storage] and [id].
// [id] represents the user - IP Address, User ID, etc.
// [max_allowed] and [duration] will commonly be used and represent
// the rate at which the event is allowed. If not specified then a
// default of 1 is used which allows for 1 request per second.
$options = [
    'max_allowed' => 1, // Requests, Events, etc
    'duration' => 1, // In seconds
    'storage' => $storage,
    'id' => $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'],

// Check the Request
list($allowed, $headers) = $rate_limit->allow($options);
// $allowed = bool
// $headers = Array of headers that can be used for logic
//            or sent with the response

// One thing to be aware of when filtering by IP is that many users can have
// the same IP if they are accessing your site from the same office or location.

// Option examples:

// Limit to 10 requests every 20 seconds

// the number of requests for the given duration but allows for bursts.
// The 'token-bucket' allows for rate limiting at a timed rate however
// it can allow for a higher number requests than the specified [max_allowed].
// For basic usage with a small number of [max_allowed] such as
// "1 request per second" they will behave the same, however if specifying
// a larger number such as "10 requests per 20 seconds" then there will

// and see related links in the API docs.

Open and Edit Images Files

// file extension doesn't match the file type then an exception will be thrown.
// Supported file extensions = [jpg, jpeg, gif, png, webp]

// Generate a Thumbnail or Resize the Image to a specified max width and height.
// When both width and height are specified the image will be sized to the
// smaller of the two values so it fits. If only width or only height are
// specified then image will be sized proportionally to the value.
$max_width = 200; // Pixels
$max_height = 200;
$img->resize($max_width, $max_height);

// Images can also be cropped to a specific dimensions.
// This can be used with JavaScript or App cropping libraries to allow users
// to generate thumbnails from a full uploaded image. For example allow
// a user to crop an uploaded image to a profile thumbnail.
$left = 50;
$top = 40;

$target_height = $height * 2; // Optional
$img->crop($left, $top, $width, $height, $target_width, $target_height);

// Images can be rotated which is useful for sites that allow users to upload
// images because images can often upload with incorrect rotation depending on
// the mobile device or a user may simply want to change the rotation.
$degrees = 180;

// Save Quality (0 to 100) can be specified when saving JPG or WEBP images.
// And Compression-Level (0 to 9) can specified when saving PNG files.
$img->saveQuality(90);   // Default Quality
$img->pngCompression(6); // Default Compression-Level

// Overwrite an existing image by simply calling [save()] without
// a path or save to a new file by specifying a full file path.

// Optionally close the image to free memory when finished working with it.
// This happens automatically when the variable is no longer used.

Handle Language Translations for a Site or App

// FastSitePHP provides an easy to use Internationalization (i18n) API for
// sites and apps that need to support multiple languages. The code is
// structured but minimal in size so if you have different translation needs
// you can simply copy and modify the class.

// Translations are saved as JSON files in the one directory using the name
// format of “{name}.{lang}.json”. An optional main file named “_.{lang}.json”
// if found will loaded first. The main file “_” is useful for storing key
// translations such as menus, page headers, page footers, etc.

// An optional fallback language can be specified so that missing translations
// default to another language. This allows partially translated sites to use
// this API.

// Since the API is simple and easy to use there are only two functions to call:
// [langFile()] and [textFile()].

// Example Files:
//     _.en.json
//     header.en.json
//     about.en.json

// Using this code the above files will be loaded in the order listed.
$app->config['I18N_DIR'] = __DIR__ . '/i18n';
$app->config['I18N_FALLBACK_LANG'] = 'en';

\FastSitePHP\Lang\I18N::langFile('header', 'es');
\FastSitePHP\Lang\I18N::langFile('about', 'es');

// Typical usage is allow for an app to load a language
// file based on the Requested URL:
$app->get('/:lang/about', function($lang) {
    \FastSitePHP\Lang\I18N::langFile('about', $lang);

// [setup()] can be called for each request to make sure
// that a language file is always loaded for template rendering when
// [$app->render()] is called.
// This is useful if your site uses PHP or other templates for rendering
// and expects the [i18n] default file to always be available. For example
// an unexpected error or call to [$app->pageNotFound()] can trigger a
// template to be rendered.

// Loaded translations are set to the app property ($app->locals['i18n'])
// so that they can be used with template rendering and the calling page.

// When using a URL format of [{lang}/{pages}]
// and a fallback language the user will be re-directed to the same page
// with the fallback language if the specified language doesn't exist.

// When [langFile()] is called and the language is verified as valid
// it is set to the app property ($app->lang).

// The other I18N function [textFile()] simply takes a full file path
// containing text '{lang}' along with the selected language and then loads
// the file or if it doesn't exist, the matching file for the fallback language.
$file_path = $app->config['I18N_DIR'] . '/test-{lang}.txt';
$content = \FastSitePHP\Lang\I18N::textFile($file_path, $app->lang);

// Use [getUserDefaultLang()] to get the default language for the user based
// on the 'Accept-Language' Request Header and available languages for the site.
// This is useful to provide custom content for the user or to redirect to the
// user's language when they access the default URL. 
// Requires config values I18N_DIR and I18N_FALLBACK_LANG.
$default_lang = \FastSitePHP\Lang\I18N::getUserDefaultLang();

Formatting Dates, Times, and Numbers

// FastSitePHP provides an easy to use Localization (l10n) API to allow date
// and number formatting with a user’s local language and regional settings.

// Create a new Lang L10N Object
$l10n = new \FastSitePHP\Lang\L10N();

// Settings can optionally be passed when the class is first created.
$locale = 'en-US';
$timezone = 'America/Los_Angeles';
$l10n = new \FastSitePHP\Lang\L10N($locale, $timezone);

// Use the [timezone()] function to get or set the timezone that will be used
// when formatting dates and times.
// If you have a site or application that has users in multiple timezones or
// countries an application design that works well is to save all dates and
// times in UTC and then format based on the users selected timezone.
// This example prints:
    UTC                 = 2030-01-01 00:00
    Asia/Tokyo          = 2030-01-01 09:00
    America/Los_Angeles = 2029-12-31 16:00
$date_time = '2030-01-01 00:00:00';
$timezones = ['UTC', 'Asia/Tokyo', 'America/Los_Angeles'];
foreach ($timezones as $timezone) {
    // Change Timezone
    // Print the formated date and time
    echo $l10n->timezone();
    echo ' = ';
    echo $l10n->formatDateTime($date_time);
    echo '<br>';
echo '<br>';

// Change Timezone back to UTC for the next examples

// The [$date_time] parameter for functions [formatDateTime(), formatDate(),
// and formatTime()] is either a Unix Timestamp (int) or a string in format
$date_time = 1896181200;
$date_time = '2030-02-01 13:00:00';

// Print Date Time with different locales using [locale()] and
// [formatDateTime()] functions. This example prints:
    ko    = 2030. 2. 1. 오후 1:00
    bn    = ১/২/২০৩০ ১:০০ PM
    en-US = 2/1/2030, 1:00 PM
    de-CH = 01.02.2030, 13:00
    ar    = ‏١‏/٢‏/٢٠٣٠ ١:٠٠ م
$locales = ['ko-KR', 'bn-BD', 'en-US', 'de-CH', 'ar'];
foreach ($locales as $locale) {
    // Change Locale
    // Print the formated date and time
    echo $l10n->locale();
    echo ' = ';
    echo $l10n->formatDateTime($date_time);
    echo '<br>';
echo '<br>';

// In addition to [formatDateTime()] functions [formatDate()] and
// [formatTime()] can be used to show only a date or time. Prints:
echo $l10n->formatDate($date_time);
echo '<br>';
echo $l10n->formatTime($date_time);
echo '<br>';
echo '<br>';

// Print a formatted Number with different locales using [locale()] and
// [formatNumber()] functions. Decimal places are optional and default
// to 0. This example prints:
    en-US =  1,234,567,890.12345
    en-IN = 1,23,45,67,890.12345
    fr    =  1 234 567 890,12345
    fa    =  ۱٬۲۳۴٬۵۶۷٬۸۹۰٫۱۲۳۴۵
$number = 1234567890.12345;
$decimals = 5;
$locales = ['en-US', 'en-IN', 'fr', 'fa'];
foreach ($locales as $locale) {
    // [locale()] is a chainable getter and setter function
    // so it can be set and read from the same line.
    echo $l10n->locale($locale)->locale();
    echo ' = ';
    echo $l10n->formatNumber($number, $decimals);
    echo '<br>';

// Get supported Locales, Languages, and Timezones
$locales    = $l10n->supportedLocales();
$langugages = $l10n->supportedLanguages();
$timezones  = $l10n->supportedTimezones();

Starter Site Middleware

// The FastSitePHP Starter Site includes several examples pages and provides
// a basic directory/file structure. The site is designed to provide structure
// for basic content (JavaScript, CSS, etc) while remaining small in size so
// that it is easy to remove files you don’t need and customize it for your site.
// Core Middleware classes are provided and can be modified for your site.
// To use them specify the 'Class.method' on route filter functions or
// when mounting additional files.

// Require a user to be logged in in order to use a page
$app->get('/secure-page', 'SecureController')->filter('Auth.hasAccess');

// Require an authenticated user and use CORS
    ->get('/api/:record_type', 'ApiController.getData')

// Only run a route from localhost
$app->get('/server-info', function() {

// Only load a file if running from localhost
$app->mount('/sysinfo/', 'routes-sysinfo.php', 'Env.isLocalhost');
