Fix for Issue #71


Scrutinizer Travis Packagist Packagist Packagist

This module generates @property, @method and @mixin tags for DataObjects, Page_Controllers and (Data)Extensions, so ide's like PHPStorm recognize the database and relations that are set in the $db, $has_one, $has_many and $many_many arrays.

The docblocks can be generated/updated with each dev/build and with a DataObjectAnnotatorTask per module or classname.

Example result


 * Class NewsItem
 * @property string $Title
 * @property int $Sort
 * @property int $Version
 * @property int $AuthorID
 * @method Member Author()
 * @method DataList|Category[] Categories()
 * @method ManyManyList|Tag[] Tags()
 * @mixin Versioned
class NewsItem extends DataObject
    private static $db = array(
        'Title' => 'Varchar(255)',
        'Sort'  => 'Int'

    private static $has_one = array(
        'Author'    => 'Member'

    private static $has_many = array(
        'Categories' => 'Category'

    private static $many_many = array(
        'Tags'  => 'Tag'

This module changes the content of your files and currently there is no backup functionality. PHPStorm has a Local history for files and of course you have your code version controlled... I tried to add complete UnitTests, but I can't garantuee every situation is covered.
