Use the Doctrine ORM in your framework. This package will install Doctrine and include a way to configure your db credentials.
To use doctrine in your Erdiko project simply run
composer require erdiko/doctrine
Then update /app/config/shared/database.json with the specifics of your database
You're all set! Create some entities/models and you'll be working with Doctrine
If you don't have a config file called /app/config/shared/database.json then copy the one in this package into that location (located at /vendor/erdiko/doctrine/app/config/shared/database.json)
We added some sample code of how to use Doctrine. It includes a sample entity and model to query the entity. Code is located at /vendor/erdiko/doctrine/app/
It's a great way to get going, but the best way to learn how to use doctrine is to visit the site and read the docs.
