Additional ZF tools specifically for use during Magento development. Although Magento uses a great number of Zend Framework components and has a similar architecture to a Zend Framework application. It does not have any command line tools for use during development.
These tools have been created to facilitate a number of repetitive tasks during development. Rather than switching between mysql tools and the Magento admin system you can run simple command and improve your workflow greatly. Since the 0.5.* release it also provides access to the commands from Mtool http://github.com/dankocherga/MTool
First ensure you are using the latest version of PEAR
$ sudo pear upgrade pear
NOTE: The 0.5. release requires an update to your user .zf.ini as I have simplified the tool manifest for future releases.*
This is intended to make future release of additional tools and commands much more simple. Please ensure you update your .zf.ini file to match the line shown in the "Installation Instructions" below
First install ZF on your development machine.
$ sudo pear channel-discover pear.zfcampus.org $ sudo pear install zfcampus/zf
Install MageTool on your development machine.
$ sudo pear channel-discover pear.magetool.co.uk $ sudo pear install magetool/magetool
Once you have installed ZF and MageTool you will need to create configuration for your user by creating a .zf.ini file using the following command:
$ echo 'basicloader.classes.1 = "MageTool_Tool_Manifest"' | tee ~/.zf.ini
*** If you are upgrading from previous versions you will need to ensure you update the .zf.ini file. ***
After creating the user specific configuration file and adding the additional config lines the additional MageToll commands will be available for you to use with zf. To confirm that everything is installed correctly run the following command:
Your Zend Framework zf command line tool will now have the following additional commands:
MageAdminUser zf show mage-admin-user zf create mage-admin-user username email password firstname[=Admin] lastname[=User] MageCoreCache zf clear mage-core-cache tags[=all] zf flush mage-core-cache zf enable mage-core-cache tags[=all] zf disable mage-core-cache tags[=all] MageCoreCompiler zf run mage-core-compiler zf clear mage-core-compiler zf enable mage-core-compiler zf disable mage-core-compiler zf stat mage-core-compiler MageCoreIndexer zf info mage-core-indexer code[=all] zf mode mage-core-indexer mode code[=all] zf run mage-core-indexer code[=all] MageCoreResource zf show mage-core-resource code zf delete mage-core-resource code zf update mage-core-resource module MageCoreConfig zf show mage-core-config path scope zf set mage-core-config path value scope zf replace mage-core-config match value path scope zf lint mage-core-config config-file-path[=app/code/local] lint-file-path MageApp zf version mage-app zf dispatch-event mage-app name data MageExtension zf create mage-extension vendor name pool[=local] file-of-profile mtool zf info mtool mage-module zf create mage-module name zf install mage-module name version zf upgrade mage-module name mode version mage-model zf create mage-model target-module model-path zf add mage-model model-path zf rewrite mage-model target-module origin-model your-model mage-rmodel zf rewrite mage-rmodel target-module origin-model your-model mage-helper zf create mage-helper target-module helper-path zf add mage-helper helper-path zf rewrite mage-helper target-module origin-helper your-helper mage-block zf create mage-block target-module block-path zf add mage-block block-path zf rewrite mage-block target-module origin-block your-block
MageTool provides commands for use during Magento development.
zf show mage-core-config --path web/unsecure/base_url
