MVC-style template loader for WordPress

Installation

This module can be easily installed by adding ericmann/mvpress to your composer.json file. Then, either autoload your Composer dependencies or manually include() the mvpress.php bootstrap file.

Usage

The namespaced \MVPress\get_template_part() function is a fully backwards-compatible replacement for WordPress' default get_template_part(). At a minimum, you can use the new version as a 1:1 alternative.

However, once using the new version, you can:

  • Pass an optional 3rd parameter to define a model object in the scope of the template.
  • Pass an optional 4th parameter to define an array of dynamic user data in the scope of the template.
  • Reference $this->model in the template directly (no globals!).
  • Reference $this->context->query in the template to access the global WP_Query object in-scope.
  • Reference $this->context->request in the template to access the global $_REQUEST object in-scope.
  • Reference $this->context->userData in the template to access the passed-in dynamic array in-scope.
