Event listeners

Events work the same as in standard CakePHP applications. An Event Listener Loader is provided to automatically register events in your App\Event namespace.

Event Listener Loader

The Event Listener Loader will automatically load all listeners which implement Cake\Event\EventListenerInterface within a given namespace. Example:

# src/Application.php
use Cake\Http\BaseApplication;
use MixerApi\Core\Event\EventListenerLoader;

class Application extends BaseApplication
    public function bootstrap(): void
        // ...other code
        (new EventListenerLoader())->load(); # defaults to `App\Event`
        // other code...

The default behavior loads all listeners in App\Event. You can pass a different namespace argument such as load('App\Event\Listeners') if your listeners are located elsewhere.
