Helps you add UUID for propel ActiveRecord

Build Status


This behavior requires Propel >= 1.6.0 and Ramsey\Uuid for PHP >= 5.4


Get the code by cloning this repository, or by using Composer (recommended):

    "require": {
        "badlamer/propel-uuid-behavior": "dev-master"

Then, if you don't use Composer, or an autoloader in your application, add the following configuration to your or propel.ini file:

propel.behavior.uuid.class = vendor.badlamer.propel-uuid-behavior.src.UuidBehavior

Note: vendor.badlamer.propel-uuid-behavior.src.UuidBehavior is the path to access the UuidBehavior class in "dot-path" notation.

Then declare the behavior in your schema.xml:

<table name="person">
    Explict define a column, else the beavior would create a colum called "uuid".
    We need to have at least one column with primaryKey="true" to avoid the error:
      >>Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function getPhpName() on null in [...] vendor/propel/propel1/generator/lib/builder/om/QueryBuilder.php:478<<
  <column name="id" type="CHAR" size="36" required="true" primaryKey="true" />
    We are linking the column with the name >>id<< to the behavior.
    Now the uuid generation is used for each new created entity.
  <behavior name="uuid">
    <parameter name="name" value="id" />
