How to extend for custom needs

[TODO] If you need help, ask for help.




Just install composer on your system, if not already there. Then create a composer.json file in your project's root folder and copy the following into it:

    "require": {
        "swiss-payment-slip/swiss-payment-slip-fpdf": "*"

After that you can install the package using

$ php composer.phar install

in your project's root folder.

Background Story

In february 2013 I was looking for a solution to create swiss payment slips for a project I had to do at my work place. After a short Google search I came across Manuel Reinhard's blog post about the class he made for that. On his Github project's page I found Peter Siska's pull request. His pull request introduced PSR-0 compatibility and he created a composer package on Packagist. So I tried Peter's version and it suited my basic needs.

BUT since the customer I was working for used custom designed payment slips I couldn't use Manuel's/Peter's script since it wasn't flexible enough. Now I had to decide whether I want to "just" change the script to fit my needs or to rewrite it and make it as flexible as possible. I decided myself for the latter.
