This project is in the early development stages is not currently fit for consumption. Keep checking in, though, since it's sure to launch on or before CodeIgniter 4 does.
- Integrates seamlessly into a CodeIgniter 4 project
- Generate boilerplate code you don't like writing every time
- Interactive REPL environment to test out features.
- and likely more!
Download the Code
The preferred method to install is via Composer. Add the following to the
require-dev section of your project's
Clone the repo to somewhere you'll find it again:
$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:lonnieezell/vulcan.git
For this example, we'll pretend we're installing it to
/home/vulcan, mainly to keep the typing minimal.
Next, install the dependencies with composer:
cd /home/vulcan composer install
Great! I can use it now, right? Not so fast...
Let Your CodeIgniter Project Know
We need to let your project know where to find the commands, so open up
/application/Config/Autoload.php and create the
Vulcan namespace in the
public $psr4 = [ 'Vulcan' => '/home/vulcan' ];
Now can we use it? You bet!
Using CodeIgniter 4's built-in cli tools you can call any of the Vulcan commands now:
$ php spark
This will provide a list of commands and a short explanation.
Using the Interactive Debugger
Vulcan packages the excellent PsySH repl and interactive debugger. Be sure to use read its manual to see all of the great things it can do.
