Application versioning for Zend Framework 2.

Table of contents


Use this module to integrate the application versioning into your development practices. It allows propagating the application version without changing multiple files with every release.

Use case:

By appending the version number to your stylesheets and javascript include calls, you can make sure that the user always gets the version you intended (and not an old cached one).

<!-- Stylesheets -->
<link href="//<?= $this->rbVersion() ?>"/>

<!-- Scripts -->
<script src="//<?= $this->rbVersion() ?>"></script>



The default configuration of the module can be found in the file config/module.config.php. To override the defaults, add your values under the rb_version key in the config/autoload/local.php file of your application, using the same structure as in the defaults.


The provider is the source of the version. Two providers are implemented at the moment: direct and file.


With this provider the version comes directly from the configuration array. An example of direct provider configuration:

'rb_version' => array(
'provider' => array(
        'type' => 'direct',
        'number'=> '1.2.3',
        'name'=> 'Amazing',


With this provider the configuration comes from a php file located somewehere on the disk. The configuration for this provider is as follows:

'rb_version' => array(
'provider' => array(
        'type' => 'file',
        'file'=> '/tmp/version.php',

The content of the version file should be similar to the following example:


use RbVersion\Model\Version as RbVersion;

return new RbVersion('1.2.3', 'Amazing Antilope');


Both a view helper, and a controller plugin are available.

Call $this->rbVersion() inside a view or controller. This will return the numeric version. If you have defined a name for the version and want it to be appendend to the numeric value, use $this->rbVersion(true) which will return both the numeric version and the name of it concatenated by a space.

For example if your version is 1.2.3 Awesome Antilope calling $this->rbVersion() will return 1.2.3 and calling $this->rbVersion(true) will return 1.2.3 Awesome Antilope
