Models that are simple to create and use. Light weight but easily extensible.

Getters and setters will be simulated using the magic call method:
use Efficio\Dataset\Model;

class User extends Model
{
    protected $first_name;
    protected $last_name;
    protected $full_name;
}
$me = new User;

// methods
$me->setFirstName('Marcos');
$me->setLastName('Minond');

// or properties
$me->first_name = 'Marcos';
$me->last_name = 'Marcos';

Both getter and setter methods may be overwritten:

use Efficio\Dataset\Model;

class User extends Model
{
    protected $first_name;
    protected $last_name;
    protected $full_name;

    public function getFullName()
    {
        return implode(' ', [ $this->first_name, $this->last_name ]);
    }
}
$me = new User;
$me->first_name = 'Marcos';
$me->last_name = 'Marcos';

echo $me->full_name; // outputs 'Marcos Minond'
Traits are used to specify how models are stored:
use Efficio\Dataset\Model;
use Efficio\Dataset\Storage\Model\DatabaseStorage;

class User extends Model
{
    use DatabaseStorage;

    protected $first_name;
    // ...
}

Current storage traits are:

  • Efficio\Dataset\Storage\Model\DatabaseStorage - store in a database using PDO.
  • Efficio\Dataset\Storage\Model\FileStorage - store in flat files.
  • Efficio\Dataset\Storage\Model\NullStorage - no storage.
  • Efficio\Dataset\Storage\Model\SessionStorage - stored in the $_SESSION array

Since storage information is defined in the model level any sort of custom storage may be used.

Configuring storage methods DatabaseStorage
// User uses DatabaseStorage trait
User::setConnection(new PDO('sqlite::memory:'));
FileStorage
// User uses FileStorage trait
User::setDirectory('./cache/models/');
