It's classes whose control interactions between models, services and templates. The controller is instanced, and the matched method is called, by router service when the application started.



It's the main controller for website projects who offer methods for services, routing, templating, flash messages, and redirection.

Magic methods

Two methods are reserve for system:

  • _b_pre(): method called before execution of controller method
  • _b_post(): method called after execution of controller method


class MyController extends \Berlioz\HttpCore\Controller\AbstractController
     * Method description.
     * @param \Berlioz\Http\Message\ServerRequest $request
     * @param \Berlioz\Http\Message\Response $response
     * @return \Berlioz\Http\Message\Response $response
     * @route( "/my-route/{attr1}" )
    public function myMethod(ServerRequest $request, Response $response): Response
        // Do something
        $attribute = $request->getAttribute('attr1');

        return $response;


Parameters of the controllers methods are automatically inject by the class Instantiator of service container.

Attributes of routes are available with ServerRequest parameter, with method getAttributes().
