Getting Started




System Requirements

You need PHP >= 5.4.0 to use League\Route but the latest stable version of PHP is recommended.

You will also require an implementation of PSR-7 HTTP Message. Throughout the documentation we will be using Zend\Diactoros, however, there are many implementations to choose from on Packagist.


Route is available on Packagist and can be installed using Composer:

composer require league/route

Most modern frameworks will include Composer out of the box, but ensure the following file is included:


// include the Composer autoloader
require 'vendor/autoload.php';

Going Solo

You can also use Route without using Composer by registering an autoloader function:

spl_autoload_register(function ($class) {
    $prefix = 'League\\Route\\';
    $base_dir = __DIR__ . '/src/';
    $len = strlen($prefix);
    if (strncmp($prefix, $class, $len) !== 0) {
        // no, move to the next registered autoloader
    $relative_class = substr($class, $len);
    $file = $base_dir . str_replace('\\', '/', $relative_class) . '.php';
    if (file_exists($file)) {
        require $file;

Or, use any other PSR-4 compatible autoloader.
