Hotplug - super simple plugins for Nette
Nette has not any plugin or bundle management. If you want to split your application into multiple modules,
you probably use the
includes section of configuration files. This library will help you simplify
this problem with a nice and simple way.
The best way to install this library is using Composer:
$ composer require sw2eu/hotplug
Firstly, you will use Hotplug configurator in your bootstrap file instead of classic
$configurator = new Sw2\Hotplug\Configurator;
Now you can define your plugin directory. I use slightly different structure, but it is fully configurable:
$configurator->addPluginDirectory(__DIR__ . '/../src/Plugins'); // place before $configurator->addConfig(...);
The hotplug configurator will search for any
config/hotplug.neon in defined directory. For exaple:
This search is cached, so it is processed only first time when you build container. If you want to add new plugin,
you have to manually delete hotplug cache (in file
That's all! Now you can define your plugin.
Every plugin must have defined configuration file
hotplug.neon. In this file, you work like in any
configuration file for Nette framework (maybe you can read configuration section in documentation).
You can also use variable
%pluginDir% for locating files in your plugin directory, for example assets.
If you need add new router for your plugin, it is also supersimple. Hotplug is ready for this problem. In your application config define main application router like this:
# main application config services: router: Sw2\Hotplug\Routers\RouterFactory::createRouter
RouterFactory will search for any service with tag
router. If you need to ensure sort of the routers, just name by alphabetic order.
Or you can use naming conventions with sort number like this:
# this is in your hotplug.neon services: router.999: class: Nette\Application\Routers\Route arguments: ['<presenter>/<action>[/<id>]', 'Homepage:default'] autowired: FALSE tags: [router]
Do not forget to set
FALSE! If you need to add multiple routers and you want to define as
RouteList, this library has
a shortcut class
Sw2\Hotplug\Routers\RouteList for this case:
# this is in your hotplug.neon services: router.010: class: Sw2\Hotplug\Routers\RouteList('Admin') autowired: FALSE tags: [router] setup: - addRoute('admin/sign-in', 'Auth:signIn') - addRoute('admin/sign-out', 'Auth:signOut') - add(@otherRouterService)
