Lightweight configuration writer for PHP
Lightweight configuration writer for PHP.
PHP Config Writer requires PHP 5.5.9 or higher. Also, the config directory needs to be writable by web server in order to save config file.
The reccomended way to install ConfigWriter is with Composer, dependency manager for PHP.
You should just require
filips123/config-writer in your project.
composer require filips123/config-writer:^2.0
You would only need to include autoloader and namespace in your script.
<?php use ConfigWriter\Config; require 'vendor/autoload.php'; $config = new Config;
Alternatively, you could download files from GitHub and then manually include them in your script.
You whould need to include all files and namespace in your script.
<?php use ConfigWriter\Config; require 'src/Exceptions/UnsupportedFormatException.php'; require 'src/Exceptions/WriteException.php'; require 'src/ConfigInterface.php'; require 'src/AbstractConfig.php'; require 'src/Config.php'; require 'src/Record.php'; require 'src/Writers/WriterInterface.php'; require 'src/Writers/PhpWriter.php'; $config = new Config;
Configuration making is possible using
$config = new Config;
It accepts two parameters, data and comment, and both are optional. Data parameter contains pre-set data for configuration and comment contains additional comment (or code) on top of the configuration file.
$config = new Config( [ 'username' => 'user', 'password' => 'pass', ], <<<EOD /** * The configuration file. * * It contains configuration data. */ EOD; );
Records can be added using
They can also have comments, which will be generated in documentation.
$config->addRecord('application', 'ConfigWriter', 'Application name');
Sections visually and functionally separate multiple records. They can be added using
$database = $config->addSection('database', , 'Database settings'); $database->addRecord('host', 'localhost', 'Database host'); $database->addRecord('port', '3306', 'Database port');
They can also have pre-set data using second parameter.
$config->addSection( 'database', [ 'host' => 'localhost', 'port' => '3306', ], 'Database settings');
You can save configuration using
When saving to string, configuration writer is required, and when saving to file, writer will be automatically determined.
$config->toString(new ConfigWriter\Writers\PhpWriter); $config->toFile('config.php');
Writers can also have specific options for writing.
$config->toFile('config.php', new ConfigWriter\Writers\PhpWriter, ['indentation' => ' ']);
The only supported writer is for PHP array, but more writers will be added later.
