public static method

Finds the classes or namespaces belonging to a particular library. Note: This method assumes loaded class libraries use a consistent class-to-file naming convention.


  • mixed $library

    The name of a library added to the application with Libraries::add(), or true to search all libraries.

  • array $options

    The options this method accepts:

    • 'path' string: A physical filesystem path relative to the directory of the library being searched. If provided, only the classes or namespaces within this path will be returned.
    • 'recursive' boolean: If true, recursively searches all directories (namespaces) in the given library. If false (the default), only searches the top level of the given path.
    • 'filter' string: A regular expression applied to a class after it is transformed into a fully-namespaced class name. The default regular expression filters class names based on the PSR-0 PHP 5.3 naming standard.
    • 'exclude' mixed: Can be either a regular expression of classes/namespaces to exclude, or a PHP callable to be used with array_filter().
    • 'namespaces' boolean: Indicates whether namespaces should be included in the search results. If false (the default), only classes are returned.



Returns an array of fully-namespaced class names found in the given library or libraries.
