Bolt Internals / Routing

Note: You are currently reading the documentation for Bolt 2.2. Looking for the documentation for Bolt 3.5 instead?

Every request to a page on a Bolt website is routed to a Silex controller, regardless of whether the request is for a page in the 'backend', 'frontend' or 'asynchronous'.

There are four files that contain the controller collections, located in src/Controllers/: Backend.php, Frontend.php, Async.php and Routing.php.

As such, they are all in the \Bolt\Controllers namespace. They are 'set up' in src/Application.php.

  • Backend routes are all pretty straightforward.
  • Async.php routes are used for 'ajaxy' requests, like the 'latest activity' widget on the dashboard.
  • Routing is the actual Controller that parses the routes found in routing.yml
  • Frontend contains the methods for all standard routes as defined in routes.yml.

You can modify the routing.yml to suit your own needs. Examples are included.
