Version: Pimcore 4.x

Note: NOT compatible with Pimcore versions under 4

Developed by: Youwe (Roelf)

Excerpt

  • Always wanted to perform extensive calculations simply using excel sheets?
  • Would you like a service in the background to make sure the excel sheets are ready to calculate when you need it?

... then this extension is for you!

Description

The pimcore deployment extension as the following general functionalities:

  • Provide results of excel calculations as long as the service is running

Usage and examples

Enable the plugin in Pimcore!

Run the service / make sure its running when your server boots up:

php ./plugins/PimcoreExcelculator/cli/PimcoreExcelculatorServer.php

Try the test to make sure the service works:

php ./plugins/PimcoreExcelculator/cli/PimcoreExcelculatorServerTest.php

Configure your own excel files (and socket-binding) to perform calculations with:

cp ./plugins/PimcoreExcelculator/pimcore-excel-config.default.php ./website/var/config/pimcore-excel-config.php
vi ./website/var/config/pimcore-excel-config.php

Example code without error handling

// simple example

$calcey = new \PimcoreExcelculator\PimcoreExcelculatorCalc('included-demo-file');
$calcey->set([
    'A3' => 420,
    'A4' => 246
]);

$results = $calcey->get(['A5']);

echo 'result: ' . var_export($results, true);

Example code with error handling

// you want to catch possible errors, because this functionality
// depends on a service that should be running in the background,
// and there is always the possibility that the service is busy
// or has not been started, or has crashed

$calcey = new \PimcoreExcelculator\PimcoreExcelculatorCalc('included-demo-file');
$calcey->set([
    'A3' => 420,
    'A4' => 246
]);

try {
    $results = $calcey->get(['A5']);
}
catch (\Throwable $t) {
    if($t->getCode() == 888) {
        // could not connect to the service!
    } 
    else {
        // something else is wrong  ( check $t->getMessage() )
    }
}

echo 'result: ' . var_export($results, true);

Example code with error handling and different sheets in one file

$calcey = new \PimcoreExcelculator\PimcoreExcelculatorCalc('some-not-included-file');
$calcey->set([
    'sheetOne.A3' => 420,
    'sheetTwo.A4' => 246
]);

try {
    $results = $calcey->get(['sheetThree.A5', 'sheetFour.C6']);
}
catch (\Throwable $t) {
    if($t->getCode() == 888) {
        // could not connect to the service!
    } 
    else {
        // something else is wrong  ( check $t->getMessage() )
    }
}

echo 'result: ' . var_export($results, true);

Deployment to server

Run the service / make sure its running when your server boots up:

php ./plugins/PimcoreExcelculator/cli/PimcoreExcelculatorServer.php

You can do this, for example, using a cron job:

*/1 * * * * flock -n /tmp/pimcore.excel.lockfile -c "/usr/bin/php /var/www/html/plugins/PimcoreExcelculator/cli/PimcoreExcelculatorServer.php"

Troubleshooting

Before importing the definitions, you might need to set the correct permissions, in order for this script to be able to write to the definition files. In case of local development, a low security solution like the following could be used:

sudo chmod -R 777 .

Make sure you have your local apache running as root or your user, or it might not be able to connect to the service:

On macOS/OSX:

in httpd.conf

User my-username
Group _www

or

User root
Group _www

Installation

Plugin can be installed through composer. Add json to your composer.json:

composer require youwe/pimcore-excelculator

Activate/enable the plugin in pimcore's extras->extensions list.

Also, add this to your .gitignore:

/plugins/PimcoreExcelculator
