When [$app->get()], [$app->post()] and other methods are called a new Route Object is created.




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 seperate 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';


名称 数据类型 默认 描述
pattern string null URL Pattern to match for the route to get called
controller string
null Controller Closure function or string that refers to a class or class and method.
method string
null Request Method to match ['GET', 'POST', etc]
filter_callbacks array [] Array of filter functions for the route



Add a filter function to the route. If the route is matched then all filter functions for it are called. If one or more of the filter functions returns [false] then the route is skipped. Filter functions are not required to return anything. If a filter function returns a Response Object then it will be sent to the client and the controller for the route will not be called.
