Doctrine port to Nette 3.0 with maximal performance.

v2.1.1 2020-05-14 13:16 UTC


Integrity check

A simple and easy to use, maximum performance database layer with connection to Doctrine, which allows you to use all the advantages of OOP and also has support for Nette 3.

This package automatically installs Doctrine to your project (also setting everything up in the configuration) and runs stably.

How to install

This package can be installed using PackageRegistrator which is also part of the Baraja Sandbox. If you are not using it, you have to install the package manually following this guide.

A model configuration can be found in the config.neon file inside the root of the package.

To manually install the package call Composer and execute the following command:

composer require baraja-core/doctrine

In the projects common.neon you have to define the database credentials. A fully working example of configuration can be found in the config.neon file inside this package.

You can define the configuration simply using parameters (stored in the super-global array parameters).

For example:

         dbname: sandbox
         user: root
         password: root

For now the package supports only the connection to one database.


In default settings Doctrine use MySql driver.

You can rewrite it for example for Postgres:

In your common.neon simple type:

      driverClass: Baraja\Doctrine\Driver\Postgres\PDOPgSqlDriver

Generate database structure from entities

This package implements a bridge to automatically execute Doctrine commands.

For example you can simply call:

php www/index.php o:s:u -f --dump-sql

The command o:s:u means orm:schema-tool:update.

  • -f is flush to execute changes in SQL,
  • --dump-sql renders the list of SQL commands that will be executed.

If everything will work fine, the command will create the table core__database_slow_query which is defined in this package and is ready for logging slow queries.

Best performance

When Doctrine is used poorly, it can be unnecessarily slow.

For more details (in Czech language):

This package uses best-practices to increase the performance. It sets automatically autoGenerateProxyClasses to false, ProxyClasses will be generated when needed by Doctrine.

For maximum performance is best to save the generated meta data about your entities using Redis:


TIP: Read more about UUID binary performance (czech language)

For unique record (entity) identification the package defines the trait UuidIdentifier or UuidBinaryIdentifier with already defined all basic best-practice configurations for your entity. The ID will be generated automatically.

For a better experience please insert two traits to all the entities in your project:



namespace Baraja\Doctrine\Entity;

use Doctrine\ORM\Mapping as ORM;
use Nette\SmartObject;
use Baraja\Doctrine\UUID\UuidBinaryIdentifier;

 * @ORM\Entity()
class DatabaseEntity

   use UuidBinaryIdentifier; // <--- UUID trait for entity identifier.
   use SmartObject;          // <--- Strict class for better experience.

UUID will be generated automatically in PHP.

Entities manipulation

The package defines a DIC service DoctrineHelper with super useful methods.

  • getEntityVariants(string $entity, array $exclude = null): array
  • getBestOfType(string $entity): string
  • getTableNameByEntity(string $entity): string
  • getRootEntityName(string $entity): string
  • getDiscriminatorByEntity(string $entity): string
  • remapEntityToBestType($from)
  • remapEntity($from, $to)
