Build Status

An assetic filter for javascripts file that allow you to import client javascripts easily like that :


// some js code here ...

How install it ?

In your composer.json add this line :

"davidjegat/jimport-bundle": "*"

Launch a composer.phar install or composer.phar update. Finaly, add the bundle into your Symfony2 Kernel :

	new DavidJegat\JImportBundle\DavidJegatJImportBundle();

It's done ! Jimport is install on your symfony 2.

## How to use it ?

This first things to do is to register your bundles into your assetic configuration :

	bundles: [ 'YourBundle' ]

Now, with assetic import your only file that you need and add the jimport filter :

	<script src="{{asset_url}}"></script>

{% endjavascripts %}

How does it works ?

Into the main.js file, after having register your bundle, add this simple line when you want to import it into your javascript :


Import priority

When you register a bundle into the assetic.bundles array key, the @import function will look at the Resources/public directory of this bundle. If no file is found then the function will parse the next bundle. If definitively no file is found, the function will be replace the @import statement by an empty character string.

## Rocks with Jimport ? Code you own extension !

Jimport is a very simple file parser. It works for javascript files, css files ... any assetic files. You can defined your own JImport function. Let's take an exemple. You need to create a special javascript function that allow you to get a given url from your project. A sort of router ? Let's do it !

### The first step, FunctionInterface

You can easily create your own jimport function parser by respect this interface :

namespace DavidJegat\JImportBundle\Functions;

use DavidJegat\JImportBundle\Parser\Parser;

 * Defined JImport Functions behavior
 * @author David Jegat <david.jegat@gmail.com>
interface FunctionInterface
	 * Return your function name
	 * @return string
	public function getName();

	 * Execute the function
	 * @param array $arguments
	 * @param Parser $parser
	 * @return string, the function relacement
	public function execute(array $arguments, Parser $parser);

### Your own function !?

So, create an object in your bundle and add this code :

namespace My\CoolBundle\Jimport;

use DavidJegat\JImportBundle\Functions\FunctionInterface;
use DavidJegat\JImportBundle\Parser\Parser;

class GiveMeTheUrlFunction implements FunctionInterface
	 * @var Router $router, The injected router service
	 * @access private
	private $router;

	 * return the function name
	 * @return string
	public function getName()
		return 'giveMeTheUrl';

	 * Execute the function
	 * @param array $args, The function arguments
	 * @param Parser $parser, The JImport parser
	 * @return string
	public function execute(array $args, Parser $parser)
		// just return an absolute url
		return '"'.$this->router->generate('my_road', array(), true).'"';

	 * constructor, it takes the router service
	 * @param Router $router
	public function __construct($router)
		$this->router = $router;

Register the function

Into your services.yml add this kind of lines :

		class: 'My\CoolBundle\Jimport\GiveMeTheUrlFunction'
		arguments: [ '@router' ] # inject the router
			- { name: 'davidjegat_jimport.function' } # Tag the function !

### Now, let's rock !

Go into your file and used your own function like that for exemple :

function getRoad()
	return @giveMeTheUrl();

Caution !

You can't use jimport for code dynamical access to the database, or interaction with some datas because, in devellopment your files will be corectly parsed but once the assetic will be dumped the files just be parsed once ! This is bad ! prefer to use AJAX !
