Build Status

Provides useful functionality for any Doctrine 2 based project including:

  • Transparent user/server timezone conversion
  • Encrypted string fields
  • Enumerations


The easiest way to add orkestra-common to your project is using composer.

Add orkestra-common to your composer.json file:

    "require": {
        "orkestra/common": "dev-master"

Then run composer install or composer update.


Each feature provided by common requires a bit of set up.

Dates and Times

Orkestra's custom DateTime implementation allows for easier conversion between server and user time, without the need for a full-blown localization or internationalization implementation.

# /path/to/your/bootstrap.php

use Doctrine\DBAL\Types\Type;

// DateTime types
Type::overrideType('datetime', 'Orkestra\Common\DbalType\DateTimeType');
Type::overrideType('date', 'Orkestra\Common\DbalType\DateType');

Encrypted string fields

The encrypted_string field type transparently encrypts and decrypts data when persisting and hydrating entities.


Enumerations are not supported by PHP nor Doctrine 2 out of the box. Common provides a base class for your own custom enumeration implementations. Each enumeration requires the enumeration itself and a corresponding DbalType class to integrate the enumeration with Doctrine 2.
