README

ADR pattern implementation for Laravel. The package provides a set of tools making it easier to implement the Action-Domain-Responder pattern.

Installation

Install package using Composer:

composer require desmart/adr

Register the package's service provider in config/app.php:

'providers' => [
        (...)
        DeSmart\ADR\ServiceProvider::class,
    ],

Usage

The main goal of this package is to make it easier to implement the ADR pattern. This means that you should be able to create Actions (Controllers with a single callable method, e.g. execute()) that return a Responder.

The Responder can digest a single Entity or a Collection of Entities and transform them into a JSON API response.

Example

class ADRAction extends \DeSmart\ADR\Actions\BaseAction
{
    public function execute()
    {
        $user = new User('John', 'john@desmart.com');

        return $this->respondWith($user);
    }
}

Model to Entity hydration

In order to hydrate an entity from a model (and vice versa) the package comes with a helper - HydratesEntityTrait.

Each Model class that uses this trait will be granted the toEntity() method which converts the Model to an Entity.
