Titon Framework

What is Titon?

Titon is a modular web framework built on Hack that runs in HHVM. It is written with simplicity and efficiency in mind, with enough room for extensibility and abstraction. The framework takes advantage of Hack's strict mode, type system, generics, collections, and more. It also integrates the wonderful PSRs from PHP-FIG for increased interoperability with external PHP code bases and libraries.

Testing

Titon comes packaged with a Vagrant box and a handful of Python scripts to ease the testing process. Boot up the Vagrant instance with vagrant up and SSH into the box with vagrant ssh. Once in Vagrant, you can run the following command to run tests.

/vagrant/bin/run-tests

Or run tests for a single file or folder.

/vagrant/bin/run-tests --path=Titon/Common

Or filter tests based on class or method name.

/vagrant/bin/run-tests --filter=methodName

Hack Strict Mode

For the most part, Titon strives to be strict compliant. This can be very challenging, but with Hack's built-in type checker, it couldn't be easier. Simply run the following command to check for strict issues.

/vagrant/bin/type-check

Or type check a specific folder.

/vagrant/bin/type-check --path=Titon/Utility

When filtering down by path, multiple errors will still arise like "Was expecting a class", "Unbound name", "Unbound global constant", "This is not a container, this is an object of type X", etc. The main cause of this issue is that the type checker is ran in a sub-folder, and not the root, so all those classes are not in scope. This should not be an issue if the type checker is ran in the source root.
