README

Build Status

This plugin is a sanitizer for entity data that uses the Html Purifier Library: http://htmlpurifier.org/

HTML Purifier is a standards-compliant HTML filter library written in PHP. HTML Purifier will not only remove all malicious code (better known as XSS) with a thoroughly audited, secure yet permissive whitelist, it will also make sure your documents are standards compliant, something only achievable with a comprehensive knowledge of W3C's specifications.

Recognition

I have to give credit to @josegonzalez for giving me the inspiration to write this based on his Purifiable Behavior.

Requirements

  • CakePHP 3.1.x
  • PHP >= 5.4.16

Installation

You can install this plugin into your CakePHP application using composer.

The recommended way to install composer packages is:

  composer require chrisshick/cakephp3-html-purifier

or add the plugin to your project's composer.json like this:

    {
        "require": {
            "chrisshick/cakephp3-html-purifier": "dev-master"
        }
    }

##Enable the Plugin In 3.x all you need to do to enable the plugin is:

    Plugin::load('ChrisShick/CakePHP3HtmlPurifier');

If you are already using Plugin::loadAll();, then you do not need to do the above step.

##Usage To start sanitizing your data, you need to attach the behavior to your table in the initialization function and pass in the fields that you want to be sanitized:

    $this->addBehavior('ChrisShick/CakePHP3HtmlPurifier.HtmlPurifier', [
        'fields'=>['title','description']
    ]);

By default the behavior purifies only on the beforeMarshal Event. To disable this, you should do the following:

   $this->addBehavior('ChrisShick/CakePHP3HtmlPurifier.HtmlPurifier', [
        'events' => [
           Model.beforeMarshal => false,
           // you can also uncomment the line below to turn on the purifier only on the beforeSave event
           //Model.beforeSave => true,
        ]
   ]);

You can also have the purifier called on a custom event:

    $this->addBehavior('ChrisShick/CakePHP3HtmlPurifier.HtmlPurifier', [
        'events' => [
           Model.myCustomEvent => true,
        ]
   ]);

You can adjust the HtmlPurifier configuration by passing in the config key into the configuration:

   $this->addBehavior('ChrisShick/CakePHP3HtmlPurifier.HtmlPurifier', [
        'config' => [
            'HTML' => [
                'DefinitionID' => 'purifiable',
                'DefinitionRev' => 1,
                'TidyLevel' => 'heavy',
                'Doctype' => 'XHTML 1.0 Transitional'
            ],
            'Core' => [
                'Encoding' => 'UTF-8'
            ],
            'AutoFormat' => [
                'RemoveSpansWithoutAttributes' => true,
                'RemoveEmpty' => true
            ],
        ],
   ]);

You can find all the configurable options and custom filters on the http://htmlpurifier.org/ website.

###HTML5 support

HTMLPurifier does not support HTML 5. However, the plugin incorporates work to add new elements (e.g. article, section, video, mark) to the HTML definition, based on HTML 4.01 Transitional, so HTMLPurifier won't strip them. To enable this functionality, specify the Doctype as 'HTML 5' in your configuration.
