Container Reference

this section describes about how to use container and what data are available for you by default.

Using Container

to add data to container use:

$this->container['key'] = 'value'

to get data from container you have two ways:

// access directly
$value = $this->container['key'];

//this method has an advantage of interoperability. so it is recommended.
$value = $this->container->get('key');

to check if a key exists in a container:

    //do something
