The Application class
The documentation and the code base often refer to an
ICanBoogie\Application class, and if you
check the source code you'll see that it's used in many places, but you might be surprised to
discover that the class itself is nowhere to be found. That's because the class must be defined by
your application. Whether it is defined in your bootstrap file, or as a stand-alone auto-loadable
file, you have to define the class and it must extend
When you start writing your application, it might seem redundant to define a class that extends
another without adding features, but as your application grows you'll soon add bindings to the
class, and because the code base uses
ICanBoogie\Application instead of
ICanBoogie\ApplicationAbstract, they will be readily available to your IDE.
The following example demonstrates how to add bindings from the icanboogie/bind-render package to your application.
class Application extends ApplicationAbstract
