Build Status

The PublishableBehavior is designed to quickly add publish/unpublish features to your model.


Install the behavior in your project, the recommended way is to use Composer:

    "require": {
        "willdurand/propel-publishable-behavior": "dev-master"

Add the following line to your propel.ini or build.properties configuration file:

propel.behavior.publishable.class = vendor.willdurand.propel-publishable-behavior.src.PublishableBehavior

Note: vendor.willdurand.propel-publishable-behavior.src is the path of the behavior in dot-path notation.

<behavior name="publishable">
    <parameter name="is_published_column" value="is_published" />
    <parameter name="published_by_default" value="false" />
    <parameter name="include_unpublished" value="false" />
    <!-- timeframe support -->
    <parameter name="with_timeframe" value="false" />
    <parameter name="published_at_column" value="published_at" />
    <parameter name="published_until_column" value="published_until" />
    <!-- start and end value can be null -->
    <parameter name="require_start" value="false" />
    <parameter name="require_end" value="false" />

Note: Parameter include_unpublished allows you to exclude unpublished object from each query. It is setup to false by default. If you don't want to exclude unpublished items, you have to set it to true

Running tests

First of all, copy the phpunit.xml.dist to phpunit.xml.

If you did not install propel with composer, change PROPEL_DIR and PHING_DIR values to customize the include path. Customize autoloader by changing AUTOLOAD property.

then simply launch

$ vendor/bin/phpunit -c phpunit.xml

All green?
