package.xml file structure generator for plugins

It can be a hassle to write a package.yml for a plugin if it contains many files. Fortunately, with the help of the sfFinder class and a bit of programming, you can automate the generation of the <content> part in a batch.

Create a batch/package_generator.php with the following code:

define('SF_ROOT_DIR',    realpath(dirname(__FILE__).'/..'));
define('SF_APP',         'frontend');
define('SF_ENVIRONMENT', 'prod');
define('SF_DEBUG',       false);
$line          = array();
$lines         = array();
$previous_dirs = array();  
$files         = sfFinder::type('file')->relative()->in('path/to/plugin/files');
// Prepare the list of files for nice hierarchy
foreach($files as $file)
  $file = str_replace('\\', '/', $file);
  $dirs = explode ('/', $file);
  $line['filename'] = array_pop($dirs);
  $temp_dirs = $dirs;
  foreach($dirs as $dir)
    if($previous_dirs && $dir == $previous_dirs[0])
  foreach($dirs as $dir)
    $line['open'][] = $dir;        
  foreach($previous_dirs as $dir)
    $line['close'][] = $dir;        
  $lines[] = $line;
  $line = array();
  $previous_dirs = $temp_dirs;
$blanks = 0;
<?php foreach($lines as $line): ?>
<?php if(isset($line['close'])): ?>
<?php foreach($line['close'] as $dir): ?>
<?php echo str_repeat('  ', --$blanks) ?></dir>
<?php endforeach; ?>
<?php endif; ?>
<?php if(isset($line['open'])): ?>
<?php foreach($line['open'] as $dir): $counter++ ?>
<?php echo str_repeat('  ', $blanks++) ?><dir name="<?php echo $dir ?>">
<?php endforeach; ?>
<?php endif; ?>
<?php echo str_repeat('  ', $blanks) ?><file name="<?php echo str_replace('\\', '/', $line['filename']) ?>" role="data"/>
<?php endforeach; ?>

Just run it with

> php batch/package_generator.php

and paste the output in your package.xml. That's all.

Create your own symfony PEAR package

Sometimes, you want to create your own symfony PEAR package from the current trunk or from a particular branch. Or perhaps you did a checkout of the trunk and did some changes.

It's very simple to create your own PEAR package from such a directory:

pake release 0.8.1 stable

and pake will create a symfony PEAR package with the version 0.8.1.

You will now be able to install this with the pear command line tool:

pear install symfony-0.8.1.tgz
