Collectionable Plugin

Introduction

This is a utility plugin for CakePHP. This helps managing find options, virtualFields and validations.

Setup

  • Define $options(such a property name can be modified by configure) for Options Behavior
  • Define $virtualFieldsCollection(such a property name can be modified by configure) for VirtualFields Behavior
  • Define 'Validation'(such a config name can be modified by configure) section into Configure for ConfigValidationBehavior
  • Define $validate{PatternName}, like $validateAdd, same structure with $validate, for MultiValidationBehavior

Sample code

OptionsBehavior

Here is a simple Post Model. class Post extends AppModel { var $hasMany = array('Comment'); var $hasOne = array('Status');

    var $acsAs = array('Collectionable.options');
    var $defaultOption = true; // or string like 'default'

    var $options =array(
        'default' => array(
            'contain' => array(
                'Comment',
                'Status',
            ),
        'limit' => 10,
        ),
        'published' => array(
            'condtiions' => array('Status.published' => true),
        ),
        'recent' => array(
            'order' => ('Post.updated DESC'),
        ),
        'rss' => array(
            'limit' => 15,
        ),
        'unlimited' => array(
            'limit' => null,
        ),
        'index' => array(
            // You can do sub merging
            'options' => array(
                'published',
                'recent',
            ),
        ),
    );
}

You can use them by like: class PostsController extends AppController { function index() { $this->paginate = $this->Post->options('index'); $this->set('posts', $this->paginate()); }

    function rss() {
        $this->paginate = $this->Post->options('index', 'rss'); // multiple merging at run time;
        $this->set('posts', $this->paginate());
    }

    function all_in_one_page() {
        // you can use "options" attribute wihtin finding options
        $posts = $this->Post->find('all', array('options' => array('index', 'unlimited')));
        $this->set(compact('posts'));
    }
}

To see more syntax, you would look at the test case or the code.

VirtualFieldsBehavior

This sample uses MatchableBehavior.

class User extends AppModel {
    var $hasMany = array('Post');
    var $actsAs = array('Collectionable.VirtualFields', 'Matchable');

    var $virtualFields = array(
        'full_name' => "CONCAT(User.first_name, ' ', User.last_name)",
    );
    var $virtualFieldsCollection = array(
        'posts_count' => 'COUNT(Post.id)',
        'amount_used' => 'SUM(Post.volume)',
    );
}

You can use them by like:

class UsersController extends AppController {
    function admin_index() {
        // Hey, you may feel like using OptionsBehavior :P
        $jointo = array('Post');
        $group = 'User.id';
        $virtualFields = array('posts_count', 'amount_used'); // key of collections
        $this->paginate = compact('jointo', 'group', 'virtualFields');
        $this->set('users', $this->paginate());
    }

    function profile() {
        $virtualFields = array('full_name' => false); // disable virtualFields
        $user = $this->User->find('first', compact('virtualFields'));
        $this->set(compact('user'));
    }
}

ConfigValidationBehavior

class User extends AppModel {
    var $actsAs = array('Collectionable.ConfigValidation');

    var $validate = array(
        'nickname' => array(
            'required' => array(
                'rule' => array('notempty'),
            ),
            'min' => array(
                'rule' => array('minlength'),
                'message' => 'I said more than %s!!',
            ),
        ),
        'email' => array(
            'required' => array(
                'rule' => array('notempty'),
            ),
            'among' => array(
                'rule' => array('between'),
            ),
        ),
    );
}

You can set validation parameters, messages from Configuration:

Configure::write('Validation', array(
    'parameters' => array(
        'User' => array(
            'nickname' => array(
                'min' => 3,
            ),
            'email' => array(
                'among' => array(16, 256)
            ),
        ),
    ),
    'messages' => array(
        'default' => array(
            'required' => 'you need to enter.',
            'min' => '%s characters needed',
        ),
        'User' => array(
            'email' => array(
                'required' => 'are you kidding me or misreading?',
            ),
        ),
    ),
));

Note that priority is "hard coded on your model" > "specifying Model and field" > "default". But if you turn $overwrite property on, "specifying Model and field" forces to overwrite("default" does not).

MultiValidationBehavior

class User extends AppModel {

    var $actsAs = array('Collectionable.MultiValidation');

    var $validate = array(
        'password_raw' => array(
            'required' => array(
                'rule' => array('notempty'),
            ),
            'minlength' => array(
                'rule' => array('minlength', 6),
            ),
        ),
    );

    // note that $validateprofile is invalid with 'profile'
    var $validateProfile = array(
        'nickname' => array(
            'required' => array(
                'rule' => array('notempty'),
            ),
            'maxlength' => array(
                'rule' => array('maxlength', 40),
            ),
        ),
    );

    var $validateRequireEmail = array(
        'email' => array(
            'required' => array(
                'rule' => array('notempty'),
            ),
            'email' => array(
                'rule' => array('email'),
            ),
        ),
    );

    var $validatePasswordConfirm = array(
        'password_confirm' => array(
            'required' => array(
                'rule' => array('notempty'),
            ),
            'confirm_password' => array(
                'rule' => array('confirm_password'),
            ),
        ),
    );

    // You can set validation pattern on demand:
    function add($data, $validate = true, $options = array()) {
        $this->useValidationSet('requireEmail');
        $this->create();
        return $this->save($data, $validate, $options);
    }

    // You can dsiable default $validate with second argument as false:
    function edit($data, $validate = true, $options = array()) {
        $this->useValidationSet('profile', false);
        return $this->save($data, $validate, $options);
    }

    // You can specify two and more rule sets. these will be merged
    function resetEmail($data) {
        $this->useValidationSet(array('requireEmail', 'passwordConfirm'));
    }

    function confirm_password() {
        // confirm password
    }

}
