Usage With laminas-servicemanager

laminas-di is designed to play and integrate well with laminas-servicemanager. When you are using laminas-component-installer, you just need to install laminas-di via composer and you're done.

Service Factories For DI instances

laminas-di ships with two service factories to provide the Laminas\Di\InjectorInterface implementation.

  • Laminas\Di\Container\ConfigFactory: Creates a config instance by using the "config" service.

  • Laminas\Di\Container\InjectorFactory: Creates the injector instance that uses a Laminas\Di\ConfigInterface service, if available.

use Laminas\Di;
use Laminas\Di\Container;

$serviceManager->setFactory(Di\ConfigInterface::class, Container\ConfigFactory::class);
$serviceManager->setFactory(Di\InjectorInterface::class, Container\InjectorFactory::class);

Abstract/Generic Service Factory

This component ships with a generic factory Laminas\Di\Container\AutowireFactory. This factory is suitable as an abstract service factory for use with laminas-servicemanager.

You can also use it to create instances with laminas-di using an IoC container (e.g. inside a service factory):

use Laminas\Di\Container\AutowireFactory;
(new AutowireFactory())->__invoke($container, MyClassname::class);

Or you can use it as factory in your service configuration directly:

return [
    'factories' => [
        SomeClass::class => \Laminas\Di\Container\AutowireFactory::class,

Service Factory For AoT Code Generation

laminas-di also provides a factory for Laminas\Di\CodeGenerator\InjectorGenerator. This factory (Laminas\Di\Container\GeneratorFactory) is also auto registered by the Module and ConfigProvider classes for laminas-mvc and Mezzio.
