Codeigniter Matches CLI

Codeigniter Matches is a PHP CLI script that allows you to write controllers, models and views faster.

Setup

To verify if you have php cli installed, type into terminal/command prompt.

php -v

If you receive the php version number, then you are good to go.

Go to your config.php file inside the application/config and make sure the following line looks like below:

$config['uri_protocol'] = 'AUTO';

After that line, add:

$config['uri_protocol'] = isset($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']) ? 'PATH_INFO' : 'CLI';

Save the file...

Put Matches.php (or matches.php if you have a lesser than v.3 Codeigniter) inside the controllers directory. Put config/matches.php inside your app config folder. Also, put matches_templates folder inside the views folder. From terminal or command prompt go to the application's index.php and type:

php index.php matches

If everything went well, you should be greeted by Matches.

Usage

Application

To create MVC stack (controller, model, view) you can use create:app.

Usage example

// Create an MVC stack
php index.php matches create:app users

Controllers

create:controller name_of_controller

You can use Matches to create a Controller file. The command will need at leas a parameter which represents the name of the controller.

You can put the controller inside a directory. Directories are delimited with ".". So, if you want to create the controller inside controllers/admin, you can do create:controller admin.name_of_controller.

Usage examples

// Create a Welcome controller that extends MY_Controller
php index.php matches create:controller welcome e:my

// Create a User controller inside admin directory that will extend Admin_Controller
php index.php matches create:controller admin.user extend:admin

Models

create:model name_of_model

Creates a model having name_of_model as name. You can put the model inside a directory. Directories are delimited with ".". So, if you want to create the model inside models/admin, you can do create model admin.name_of_model.

Usage examples

// Create a user_model model that extends MY_Model
php index.php matches create:model user_model e:my

// Create a User model inside admin directory that will extend MY_Model
php index.php matches create:model admin.user extend:my

Views

create:view name_of_view

Creates a view having name_of_view as file name. You can put the view inside a directory. Directories are delimited with ".". So, if you want to create the view inside views/admin, you can do create view admin.name_of_view.

Usage examples

// Create an index_view.php
php index.php matches create:view user_view

// Create an index_view.php inside users directory
php index.php matches create:view users.index_view

Migrations

CodeIgniter Matches helps you create, do, undo, and reset migrations.

create:migration

To create a migration you can call create:migration. As a result, a migration will be created in the migrations directory prefixed with version as file name. You can also pass a table name as parameter. If no table name is given, you will have to put the name of the table in the migration file. Below are usage examples:

Usage examples

// Create a migration
php index.php matches create:migration create_users_table

// Create a migration with a table inside it
php index.php matches create:migration create_users_table table:users

// Create a migration with a table inside it
php index.php matches create:migration create_users_table t:users

// Create a migration and name the table like the migration
// -> The table name will be 'users' in this exmaple
php index.php matches create:migration t:%inherit% create_users_table

do:migration

do:migration executes the migrations' up() methods. If you pass the version of the migration a parameter, it will stop at that version of the migration.

Usage examples:

// Execute all migrations until the last one
php index.php matches do:migration

// Execute all migrations until a certain version of migration
php index.php matches do:migration 20150722

undo:migration

undo:migration returns you to the previous migration version. This one also can accept a migration version as parameter to return to a migration.

Usage examples:

// Undo last migration
php index.php matches undo:migration

// Undo the migrations until a specified migration version
php index.php matches undo:migration 20150722

reset:migration

reset:migration will reset the migrations until the migration mentioned in $config['migration_version'] (in the migration configuration file).

Usage example:

// Reset the migrations
php index.php matches reset:migration

encryption_key

encryption_key string_to_hash-(OPTIONAL) - creates an encryption key inside all config.php's found in config folder. If $config['encryption_key'] = ''; doesn't exist or has a value, the encryption key won't be written.
