The ExpressionLanguage component provides an engine that can compile and evaluate expressions. An expression is a one-liner that returns a value (mostly, but not limited to, Booleans).

$ composer require symfony/expression-language

Alternatively, you can clone the https://github.com/symfony/expression-language repository.

Note

If you install this component outside of a Symfony application, you must require the vendor/autoload.php file in your code to enable the class autoloading mechanism provided by Composer. Read this article for more details.

The purpose of the component is to allow users to use expressions inside configuration for more complex logic. For some examples, the Symfony Framework uses expressions in security, for validation rules and in route matching.

Besides using the component in the framework itself, the ExpressionLanguage component is a perfect candidate for the foundation of a business rule engine. The idea is to let the webmaster of a website configure things in a dynamic way without using PHP and without introducing security problems:

# Promote article to the homepage when

# Send an alert when

Expressions can be seen as a very restricted PHP sandbox and are immune to external injections as you must explicitly declare which variables are available in an expression.

Usage

The ExpressionLanguage component can compile and evaluate expressions. Expressions are one-liners that often return a Boolean, which can be used by the code executing the expression in an if statement. A simple example of an expression is 1 + 2. You can also use more complicated expressions, such as someArray[3].someMethod('bar').

The component provides 2 ways to work with expressions:

  • evaluation: the expression is evaluated without being compiled to PHP;
  • compile: the expression is compiled to PHP, so it can be cached and evaluated.

The main class of the component is ExpressionLanguage:

var_dump($expressionLanguage->evaluate('1 + 2')); // displays 3

Expression Syntax

See Boutique Boutique Sweater winter winter Express Express Pullover qwzxRwBaE to learn the syntax of the ExpressionLanguage component.

Passing in Variables

You can also pass variables into the expression, which can be of any valid PHP type (including objects):

Caching

The component provides some different caching strategies, read more about them in Caching Expressions Using Parser Caches.

AST Dumping and Editing
