Join David Powers for an in-depth discussion in this video Using a PSR-4 class autoloader, part of Managing PHP Persistent Sessions.
- To control persistent sessions…and automatic log in,…each page needs to load the three class definitions…and the persistent properties trait…on the Foundatationphp Sessions folder.…Rather than use include commands,…it's more convenient to use an autoloader script.…Now the script that we're going to use…is this one, Psr4AutoloaderClass.php,…which you can find in the test includes folder.…
If you're not familiar with Psr4,…it's a PHP standard recommendation…agreed by the PHP Framework Interop Group.…Which consists of representatives…of about 40 major PHP frameworks…including Drupal, Symfony, and Zend.…This page on the php-fig website,…describes the autoloader.…The autoloader relies on each class…and trait definition being in a separate file…with a case-sensitive name that corresponds…to the name of the class or trait.…
The files must also be in the directory structure…that maps the namespace in a case-sensitive fashion.…Following this structure makes it possible…to load classes and traits automatically…simply by registering the base directory…
