Phalcon - Routing


Advertisements


The router component allows to define routes that are mapped to the controllers or handlers that should receive the request. A router parses a URI as per the information received.

Every router in the web application has two modes −

  • MVC mode
  • Match-only mode

The first mode is ideal for working with MVC applications. Following is the syntax to define a route in Phalcon.

$router = new Router();  

// Define a route 

$router->add( 
   "<URI-Name>", 
   [ 
      "controller" => "<controller-name>", 
      "action"     => "<action-name>", 
   ] 
);

Example

For searching a category, let us create a route in routes.php of config folder.

Routes

Consider creating a route which will call a method login as we invoke “UsersController”. In such a case, it is suggested to create a route which maps the given URL.

<?php  

$router = new Phalcon\Mvc\Router();  

$router->add('/login', array( 
   'controller' => 'users', 
   'action' => 'login', 
));
  
return $router; 

Output

The code will produce the following output −
