Jaeger Settings is an abstract object to manage storage of your plugin settings.

Note that you're NOT meant to instantiate this object; you have to extend it and apply your specific settings before you can get started.


Add jaeger-app/settings as a requirement to your composer.json:

$ composer require jaeger-app/settings

Once that's done, you'll have to install the database schema located at data\settings_table.sql

Simple Example

In your parent object, ensure you extend have 2 properties, $table and $_defaults. $table should be the name of your settings table, and $_defaults is a key => value array of your plugin's settings and a default value for each.

You'll also have to define a method named validate(array $data, array $extra = array()) that accepts the settings data and returns an array of errors on failure.

class MyPluginSettings extends \JaegerApp\Settings
     * The name of the settings storage table
     * @var string
    protected $table = 'my_plugin_settings';

     * The accepted settings with a default value
     * @var array
    protected $_defaults = array(
        'key1' => 'value1',
        'key2' => 'value2',

    public function __construct($db, $lang)
        parent::__construct($db, $lang);

    public function validate(array $data, array $extra = array())

Advanced Usage

JaegerApp\Settings includes the following capabilities:

  1. Configuration Overrides
  2. Encrypting data on storage
  3. Convert new line strings into arrays
  4. Allow for custom values
  5. Serialize arrays on storage
