Entities

Overview

Clastic uses doctrine to handle all data. It also give you an Node approach. Nodes are entities that have basic information.

  • title (string)
  • user (User)
  • create (DateTime)
  • changed (DateTime)
  • publication (NodePublication)
  • available (boolean)
  • publishedFrom (DateTime)
  • publishedTill (DateTime)

Create

You can use whatever approach you want to generate the base entity. The simplest way is to use the doctrine generator.

$ php app/console doctrine:generate:entity

Fill in all the field you need.

Note

You don't need to define fields like title, author, ... when you choose to make them Nodes.

Once you created your entity you need to alter the generated code.

Object

Change the NodeReferenceInterface to your freshly generator entity. You can also use the NodeReferenceTrait which helps you implement the interface.

ex:

<?php
namespace Clastic\BlogBundle\Entity;

use Clastic\NodeBundle\Entity\Node;
use Clastic\NodeBundle\Node\NodeReferenceInterface;

class Blog implements NodeReferenceInterface
{
    use NodeReferenceTrait;

    // ...
}

Definition

Add the following code to your xml definition.

<many-to-one field="node" target-entity="Clastic\NodeBundle\Entity\Node">
  <cascade><cascade-all/></cascade>
  <join-column name="node_id" referenced-column-name="id" />
</many-to-one>

Generate

Now your entity is ready to generate a table. Do so by calling the following command.

$ php app/console doctrine:schema:update [--force]
