I want to use this medium to thank you for the job well done by creating this simple and easy to use framework. Thumb up.
My question is. I have an already built application. I used MVC method to build it. Now i want to create a public api for this application. All ajax calls will be going through this API. I have been able to installed slim and it works but my problem lies in using some of my existing classes by calling them in my SLIM index file (though i call my own api.php) to manipulate data.
The route keep returning null. Nothing was been processed!.
$app->post('/unlock', function() use ($app,$validator,$security,$session){
    $param =$app->request->post();
        echo json_encode(array('response'=>1));
    } else{
       echo json_encode(array("response"=>0,'msg'=>'Invalid Password'));
The code"($security->unLockThisApp($param['password']") would not work. Security class extends Authentication class. Am just confused
