I'm trying to get an image for a route like :

I think that i need to change headers but how for a specific route ?

$app->response()->header('Content-type', 'image/png'); echo imagepng($source_gd_image);

    ps i'm writing that :
    $app->get('/maps/trafficlayer', function () use ($app) { $app->contentType('image/png'); echo GetTrafficLayer();});

    function GetTrafficLayer()
    { //...

        imagedestroy( $source_gd_image );


    There is a way to simplify this call ?

    i didn't notice the static method :
    $app = Slim::getInstance();

    So i can use:
    $app->get('/maps/trafficlayer', 'GetTrafficLayer');


    function GetTrafficLayer()

    $app = Slim::getInstance();
    echo imagepng($source_gd_image);
    imagedestroy( $source_gd_image );

    in case that image is being generated dynamically - what I think it is - you should care about client-side caching by either setting an ETag or a Last-Modified Header (both ways are provided by Slim. See before you echo your png.
