Using composer packages as contollers and models

Hello. I currently have a package built in psr4 style.

If I autoload the package and take out the defined namespace in that package I can $loader->registerDirs() and point to the src directory and Phalcon recognizes the controller.

<?php
   $loader = new Loader();
    $loader->registerDirs(array(
        __DIR__.'/controllers/',
        __DIR__.'/models/',
        __DIR__.'/../packages/appstack/robots/src'
    ))->register();

If I put the namesspace back, it no longer finds the controller.

<?php

namespace MyPackage\Robots;

use \Phalcon\Mvc\Controller;

class RobotController extends Controller
{

I want to be able to create /packages/myapp/blog/BlogController.php and /packages/myapp/store/StoreController.php that are autoload via composer and recognized by Phalcon to find the controllers and models within

I think, you should use $loader->registerNamespaces() instead of $loader->registerDirs(). https://docs.phalconphp.com/en/latest/api/Phalcon%5Loader.html

Try to use this im using it on my micro rest api

        $loader = new Loader();
        $loader->registerNamespaces(array(
          'Controllers' => __DIR__.'/controllers/',
          'Models' => __DIR__.'/models/',
          'MyPackage\Robots' => __DIR__.'/../packages/appstack/robots/src'
        ))->register();

Ok so the combination of registerNameSpaces and Router works!! I could accomplish multiple namespaces and packages

If I use DefaultNameSpace on dispatcher it locks it into one

Not including the route and defaultnamespace it doesn't recognize its existence even tho I am vendor autoloading and ptinting to directory.

    $loader->registerNamespaces(array(
            'MyApp\Controllers' => __DIR__.'/controllers/',
            'MyApp\Models'      => __DIR__.'/models/',
            'MyApp\Robots\Controllers' => __DIR__.'/../packages/myapp/robots/src/controllers/',
            'MyApp\Robots\Models' => __DIR__.'/../packages/myapp/robots/src/models/'
        ));

and

$this->router->add(
            "/robot",
            array(
                "controller" => "\MyApp\Robots\Controllers\Robot",
                "action"     => "index"
            )
        );

I was hoping I didn't have to do routes, I just wanted it to know to check all my directories to look for the namespace (what composer autoload does)

I guess until it will look for the controller automatically i will run this for dev :)

  // WILDCARD ROUTE SYSTEM
        $this->router->add("/:controller",array("namespace" => "\MyApp\Robots\Controllers","controller" => 1));
        $this->router->add("/:controller/:action",array("namespace" => "\MyApp\Robots\Controllers","controller" => 1,"action" => 2));
        $this->router->add("/:controller/:action/:params",array("namespace" => "\MyApp\Robots\Controllers","controller" => 1,"action" => 2,"params"    => 3));

You can work as well with defualt behaviour router without need to define your actions. You just need to set setDefaultNamespace.

That is what I was having trouble getting to happen. It would continually say \MyApp\Robots\RobotController wasnt found unless I slapped the route in there... maybe I just didn't map it right.

Route shouldn't be necessary as long you are using Router without false in constructor.
