README

This installer lets you install extensions for eZ Publish legacy (4.x) with Composer.

It also helps you install eZ Publish legacy (4.x) itself, by not deleting your settings and custom code when you upgrade to a new release.

Installable extensions

To be able to install a legacy extension, it must be properly exposed to Composer with a valid composer.json file (check Composer documentation for more information), declaring an ezpublish-legacy-extension type.

Example for SQLIImport:

{
    "name": "lolautruche/sqliimport",
    "type": "ezpublish-legacy-extension",
    "description": "Import extension for eZ Publish legacy.",
    "license": "GPL-2.0",
    "minimum-stability": "dev",
    "require": {
        "php": ">=5.3.3",
        "ezsystems/ezpublish-legacy-installer": "*"
    }
}

Extension name vs package name

By default, the legacy extension gets installed in a directory named by your package pretty name. For example, package lolautruche/sqliimport gets installed in a directory named sqliimport. If you ever need to name your composer package differently from your extension name (for example, legacy extension ezfind comes in a ezsystems/ezfind-ls package), you may tell composer to use a specifica extension name rather than the package's pretty name. Just add an ezpublish-legacy-extension-name extra option in your composer.json file :

{
    "name": "ezsystems/ezfind-ls",
    "description": "eZ Find is a search extension for eZ Publish legacy, providing more functionality and better results than the default search in eZ Publish.",
    "type": "ezpublish-legacy-extension",
    "license": "GPL-2.0",
    "authors": [
        {
            "name": "eZ Publish dev-team & eZ Community",
            "homepage": "https://github.com/ezsystems/ezfind/contributors"
        }
    ],
    "minimum-stability": "dev",
    "require": {
        "ezsystems/ezpublish-legacy-installer": "*"
    },
    "extra": {
        "ezpublish-legacy-extension-name": "ezfind"
    }
}

How to install in my project

All you need to do is create a composer.json at the root of your project and require the extension (if the extension is not published on packagist, you also need to tell composer where to find it):

{
    "name": "myvendorname/myproject",
    "description": "My super cool eZ Publish project",
    "license": "GPL-2.0",
    "minimum-stability": "dev",
    "require": {
        "php": ">=5.3.3",
        "lolautruche/sqliimport": "~1.2"
    },
    "repositories" : [
        {
             "type": "vcs",
             "url": "https://github.com/lolautruche/sqliimport.git"
        }
    ]
}

Then run php composer.phar install (assuming you have already properly installed Composer of course 😉).

eZ Publish 5 case

By default, the legacy extension installer assumes that eZ Publish legacy is installed in the current folder; in other words, it is configured for pure-eZ Publish 4 projects. If this is not the case (like in eZ Publish 5, where it resides in the ezpublish_legacy/ folder), then you'll need to configure where it is:

{
    "name": "myvendorname/myproject",
    "description": "My super cool eZ Publish 5 project",
    "license": "GPL-2.0",
    "minimum-stability": "dev",
    "require": {
        "php": ">=5.3.3",
        "lolautruche/sqliimport": "~1.2"
    },
    "repositories" : [
        {
             "type": "vcs",
             "url": "https://github.com/lolautruche/sqliimport.git"
        }
    ],
    "extra": {
        "ezpublish-legacy-dir": "ezpublish_legacy"
    }
}
