Generate your doctrine entities metadata from a simple json file, including the php code for the entity

usage

A very basic model (with one entity) could look like this:

{
  "namespace": "ACME\\Blog\\Entities",

  "entities": [

    {
      "name": "User",

      "properties": {
        "id": { "type": "DefaultId" },
        "email": { "type": "String" }
      }
    }
  ]
}

The compiler will create this entity for you:

<?php

namespace ACME\Blog\Entities;

use Doctrine\ORM\Mapping as ORM;

/**
 * @ORM\Entity
 * @ORM\Table(name="users")
 */
class User {

  /**
   * @ORM\Id 
   * @ORM\Column(type="integer")
   * @ORM\GeneratedValue
   */
  protected $id;

  /** 
   * @ORM\Column(length=200) 
   */
  protected $email;

  public function __construct($email) {
    $this->email = $email;
  }

  /**
   * @return string
   */
  public function getEmail() {
    return $this->email;
  }

  /**
   * @param string Email
   * @chainable
   */
  public function setEmail($email) {
    $this->email = $email;
    return $this;
  }
}

You have the option to use this code and just copy n paste it into your (doctrine)-project. Another option is to put the json model into your project and include the compiler as a dev dependency. If someone changes the model, the entities can be recompiled. You just have to cross the generation-gap here:

CompiledUser.php

<?php

namespace ACME\Blog\Entities;

use Doctrine\ORM\Mapping as ORM;

abstract class CompiledUser {

  /**
   * @ORM\Id 
   * @ORM\Column(type="integer")
   * @ORM\GeneratedValue
   */
  protected $id;

  /** 
   * @ORM\Column(length=200) 
   */
  protected $email;

  public function __construct($email) {
    $this->email = $email;
  }

  /**
   * @return string
   */
  public function getEmail() {
    return $this->email;
  }

  /**
   * @param string Email
   * @chainable
   */
  public function setEmail($email) {
    $this->email = $email;
    return $this;
  }
}

User.php

<?php
namespace ACME\Blog\Entities;

/**
 * @ORM\Entity
 * @ORM\Table(name="users")
 */
use Doctrine\ORM\Mapping as ORM;

class User extends CompiledUser {

  protected $somethingUserDefined;

  public function __construct($email, $somethingUserDefined) {
    parent::_construct($email);
    $this->somethingUserDefined = $somethingUserDefined;
  }
}

This way your developers should never touch the Compiled** - Entities and always alter the extended classes. This way you're able to easily add new properties to your entities, or change relations between them.

Installation

The best way to use the doctrine compiler is to install it as a development tool on your machine.

composer global require webforge/doctrine-compiler

I recommend to put the global composer bin directory (~/.composer/vendor/bin or %APPDATA%\composer\vendor\bin) in your PATH.

Running

You can then compile your entities with the binary installed by composer. You have to provide the location of your json model file and the PSR-1 target-directory for your Entities.

~/.composer/vendor/bin/webforge-doctrine-compiler orm:compile etc/doctrine/model.json path/to/my/package/src/php

This will create the entities within a PSR-1 named directory in src/php

Known Issues

  • OneToMany, self-referencing Assocations are not yet supported
  • the primary defaultId with name 'id' is hardcoded on many cases (you are encouraged to use such an id)
