Ruler

cleverage/Ruler is a PHP 5.3 Library. Use it to implement your own business rules, and link them in order to check if you are satisfying the set.

Exemple :

You want to check if the current user can activate a feature. For this, you have to check that :

  • he is connected,
  • he has the premium suscription,
  • he has enough money in his account.
<?php // test

// PHP 5.3
$rule = new IsConnectedRule($user);
$rule->andRule(new IsSuscriberRule($user, 'PREMIUM'))
     ->andRule(new HasMoneyRule($user, 300))
     ->orRule(new IsAdminRule($user));

// PHP 5.4
$rule = (new IsConnectedRule($user))
  ->andRule(new IsSuscriberRule($user, 'PREMIUM'))
  ->andRule(new HasMoneyRule($user, 300))
  ->orRule(new IsAdminRule($user));

try {
    if ($rule->isSatisfied()) {
      echo 'activated';
    }
} catch (NotConnectedException $e) {
    // show connection form
} catch (NotSuscriberException $e) {
    // show subscription form
} catch (NotEnoughMoneyException $e) {
    echo 'not enough Money';
} catch(\CleverAge\Ruler\Exception\Exception $e) {
    echo 'Failed : '.$e->getMessage();
}
<?php // IsConnectedRule class
class IsConnectedRule extends \CleverAge\Ruler\RuleAbstract
{
    protected $_user;

    protected $_failure_exception_class = 'NotConnectedException';
    protected $_failure_message = 'user is not connected';

    public function __construct(\User $user)
    {
        $this->_user = $user;
    }

    public function doIsSatisfied()
    {
        return $this->_user->isLoggedOn();
    }
}

Combination of rules can even be done in a single rule class, in order to simplify your application code and increase maintability.

// ActiveFeatureXRule class
class ActiveFeatureXRule extends \CleverAge\Ruler\RuleAbstract
{
    public function __construct(\User $user)
    {
        $this->andRule(new IsSuscriberRule($user, 'PREMIUM'))
             ->andRule(new HasMoneyRule($user, 300))
             ->orRule(new IsAdminRule($user));
    }

    public function doIsSatisfied()
    {
        // method is abstract, and this container rule always satisfies.
        return true;
    }
}

Now, you can use this rule class everywhere you need it, and just change the construct to have th rules reverberated everewhere.

How logic is handled

The order in which you set OR/AND/NAND rules is not important. At the end, they are grouped by type.

  1. You want your ruleset satisfied :
// A,B,C,D,G,Z are rules
$A->andRule($B)
  ->orRule($C->andRule($Z))
  ->andRule($D)
  ->nandRule($G)
  ->isSatisfied();

// PHP =>($A && $B && $D && !$G) || ($C && $Z)
// Binary => (A.B.D.!G)+(C.Z)
  1. You want your ruleset not satisfied :
// A,B,C,D,G,Z are rules
$A->andRule($B)
  ->orRule($C->andRule($Z))
  ->andRule($D)
  ->nandRule($G)
  ->isNotSatisfied()

// PHP => (!$A || !$B || !$D || $G) && (!$C || !$Z)
// Binary => (!A+!B+!D+G).(!C+!Z)

by default, isNotSatisfied() returns !isSatisfied(). But sometimes, you may want to personnalize the doIsNotSatisfied() method in order to optimize workflow (like SQL queries).

Customization

Setting Exception class and message error

If you have one generic rule (e.g. : ObjectIsEqual), you may need to have different exception thrown when composing complex rules. Each Rule has a setter for this :

$A = new MyRule();
$A->setException('My\Name\Space\Ruler\Exceptions\MyException', 'my custom error message');

$A->isSatisfied();

// If rule is not satisfied
// it throws a new My\Name\Space\Ruler\Exceptions\MyException('my custom error message') exception
