PHP Question

Repository class does not exist (Laravel)

I am using the Repository pattern in my current project. When I try and access the route I get this error

ReflectionException
Class Repositories\UserRepository does not exist


My folder structure is like so

- Respositories
-- UserRepository


In my controller I am doing

use \Repositories\UserRepository;

class UsersController extends ApiController {

protected $user;

public function __construct(UserRepository $user)
{
$this->user = $user;
}


In the UserRepository

<?php namespace \Repositories

class UserRepository {


I am autoloading in composer

"psr-0": {
"Respositories": "app/"
}


Are my namespaces correct? I can not workout why it can't find the class.

Answer

1) Don't use prefixed back slashes when defining the namespace.

// No
<?php namespace \Repositories;

// Yes
<?php namespace Repositories;

2) Check your spelling. In your composer.json file, you have Respositories instead of Repositories.
