Custom Responses

If you wish to create a custom response or exception code, you can use the provided config/customresponses.php file. Add the new array key value pair using the following example:


where RESPONSE_CODE is your custom response code and 200 is the HTTP status code.

Using Custom Responses

You can use custom responses by using the provided Photon ResponseRepository like so:

return $this->responseRepository->make('RSVP_SUCCESS', $responseData, 'customresponses');

It's important to provide the name of the config php file, in this case 'customresponses' as the 3rd parameter.

Throwing Custom Exceptions

If you wish to throw a custom exception, a bit similar to returning a custom response, you can do e.g.

throw new \PhotonException('RESPONSE_NAME', $responseData, null, [], 'customresponses');

Again, it is important to provide the config file name as the 5th parameter.
