What is middleware in Slim Framework?

+1 vote

It says

The Slim Framework implements a version of the Rack protocol. As a result, a Slim application can have middleware that may inspect, analyze, or modify the application environment, request, and response before and/or after the Slim application is invoked.

which means "something" to me. Like, it makes something to some things. Like middle in nowhere. Also it states that it is implementation of Rack protocol, something I have never heard in PHP.

Is there any practical use other than onions? What is the proper name of "middleware" in PHP?
