This is a collection of Symfony 2 code generators based on nikic's PHP-Parser. These generators can be way more flexible than the ones provided by SensioGeneratorBundle due to their event-based nature.

First, all generators utilize an event dispatcher to notify others of the changes. This allows automatic tests/specs generation once a base generator has fired.

Here the ControllerGenerator dispatches a ControllerGenerated event which then triggers TwigViewGenerator and UnitTestGenerator to generate tests and Twig templates.

Second, an AST processor dispatcher is built in. You can hook up your own ProcessorInterface implementations that would modify the syntax tree before it's dumped into a file.

Currently, the implementation is lacking some things:

  • PHPParser does not yet allow dumping comment blocks, so there's no way to generate annotations yet.
  • The ControllerGenerator is mostly just proof-of-concept.
  • AST processors have not really been tested yet.
  • Everything needs way more flexibility.
