ZF 2-for-1

Version 0.0.1 Created by Evan Coury and Xerkus.

Introduction

Original intention of ZF2-for-1 was to provide a compatibility layer for Zend Framework 1, allowing to use Zend Framework 2 features in ZF1 application. ZF2-for-1 provides some basic functionality for such integration indeed, but we believe that migrating to ZF2 is a way to go.

In fact it proved to be quite easy to move (M)VC layer of ZF1 application to ZF2. And much easier than to run both applications in parallel.
It is explained by the fact that ZF2 is very flexible while ZF1... well, not.
This opens possibility for fast straightforward migration, while keeping most of the application code intact, and for gradual refactoring towards modern zf2 application afterwards.

To outline said above: current goal of Zf2-for-1 is to reimplement some of the ZF1 features in ZF2 to make initial migration fast and easy.

Current Features

Basic features for zf1 application

  • Registers the ZF2 autoloader
  • Bootstraps ZF2 configuration and modules
  • Makes ZF2 ServiceManager available to zf1 application
  • Makes ZF1 application config and bootstrap object available to ServiceManager
  • Registers ServiceManager in Zend_Registry under 'service_manager' key

Features for initial migration to ZF2

  • Helper class to mimic zf1 request parameters fallback: route -> get -> post

Installation

Composer install:

  • Add to you composer.json
"require": {
    "roave/zf2-for-1": "dev-master"
}
  • Run composer install
  • Add this to application/configs/application.ini:
pluginpaths.Zf2for1_Resource     = APPLICATION_PATH "/../vendor/roave/zf2-for-1/src/Zf2for1/Resource"

; This is path where Zf2for1 will be looking by default for zf2 application config
;resources.zf2.config_path = APPLICATION_PATH "/../config/"

;register service manager to Zend_Registry under the key 'service_manager'
resources.zf2.add_sm_to_registry = true
resources.view[] =

Example can be found here

Alternative install:

  • Clone this repository into APPLICATION_PATH/../vendor/Zf2for1 directory.
  • Download ZF2 and put the library/Zend directory in APPLICATION_PATH/../vendor/ZF2/ (Resulting path should be vendor/ZF2/Zend)
  • Add this to application/configs/application.ini:
pluginpaths.Zf2for1_Resource     = APPLICATION_PATH "/../vendor/Zf2for1/src/Zf2for1/Resource"

resources.zf2.zf2_path = APPLICATION_PATH "/../vendor/ZF2"
; This is path where Zf2for1 will be looking by default for zf2 application config
;resources.zf2.config_path = APPLICATION_PATH "/../config/"

Plans

There are a lot of ways this could be improved.
