Compiler config (zem_tpl.php)

I’m trying to modernise how I have my local plugin repos set up, and am failing to compile plugins — the file is created but is empty. My old setup is rather silly, with an alias for each plugin file to the directory where zem_tpl.php lives. I want to get rid of all the silly aliases, and also start compiling with the version of Textile that comes within Txp. I have a directory structure like so:

.
+-- Textpattern
|   +-- textpattern-plugin-template
|   |   +-- zem_tpl.php
|   |   +-- (etc.)
|   +-- plugins
|   |   +-- soo_page_break
|   |   |   +-- soo_page_break.php
|   |   |   +-- releases
|   |   |   |   +-- soo_page_break-0.1.1.txt

My textpattern repo is elsewhere, so I’ve uncommented the define('txpath' line in zem_tpl.php and given it the full path to textpattern/textpattern. Then in my plugin file (soo_page_break.php in this example) I’ve added the path to zem_tpl.php. I’ve tried it both with relative path and full path. Blank file each time.

Ideas, or hints how to debug this?

Ta.

Re: Compiler config (zem_tpl.php)

OK, so the hangup happens here:

    if (defined('txpath')) {
        $loader = new \Textpattern\Loader(txpath.'/lib');
        $loader->register();
    }

What do I need to do to enable the autoloader?

[Edit:] tried adding this just above the new \Textpatter\Loader call above:

include txpath.'/vendors/Textpattern/Loader.php';

but that wasn’t enough. Class Loader still doesn’t exist after the include. File permissions, I reckon.

Loader.php has very restrictive permissions.

But that wasn’t the problem; the include statement returns OK. Still no Loader class, though.

Re: Compiler config (zem_tpl.php)

It’s not you. I screwed up the templater. That pigging new $trace functionality again. Gimme five mins and I’ll push a new template to the repo.

Ok, go. Four minutes and 11 seconds.

Sorry about that, and thanks for the nudge.

Re: Compiler config (zem_tpl.php)

Now to figure out how to work with the new Textile version. In particular, how to get notextile blocks happening again. Have to look at it later.

[Edit:] Ah, I’m behind the times. The Textile treatment only happens on plugin verify, and is in restricted mode. Good motivation for me to really learn the new Textile.

Re: Compiler config (zem_tpl.php)

Hmmmm. Not so happy with the restricted Textile. Didn’t realize this one strips attributes from Textile syntax such as p(some-class).

I guess I’ll be looking into some sort of build process for pre-processing the help section into raw HTML.

Re: Compiler config (zem_tpl.php)

So I forked the plugin template/compiler package and modified it to allow plugin help text in a separate file, in either Textile or Github-flavoured Markdown. (Parser not included!)

While it will still work in the standard configuration, for my own usage I am no longer coupling it to a Txp installation. Will be happy to provide notes on how I have it arranged with PHP-Textile and Parsedown if anyone’s interested.

https://github.com/jsoo/textpattern-plugin-template

I expect there are about as many compiler arrangements as there are Txp plugin authors; this one suits my needs. Spurred by the fact that it is basically impossible to give examples of Textile syntax if the example itself undergoes Textile parsing. And by the fact that Github-Flavoured Markdown makes a lot of sense for anything hosted on GitHub.

Re: Compiler config (zem_tpl.php)

Since got it working with a Txp installation, making config easier.

Re: Compiler config (zem_tpl.php)

zem_tpl currently doesn’t convert textile help into HTML if you use option ©, which is to define the constant txpath to point to a textpattern installation.

To fix this, replace:

    @include('classTextile.php');
    if (defined('txpath')) {
        global $trace;
        include txpath.'/lib/class.trace.php';
        include txpath.'/vendors/Textpattern/Loader.php';
        $trace = new Trace();
        $loader = new \Textpattern\Loader(txpath.'/lib');
        $loader->register();
    }

With:

   if (defined('txpath')) {
        global $trace;

        include txpath.'/lib/txplib_misc.php';
        include txpath.'/lib/class.trace.php';
        include txpath.'/vendors/Textpattern/Loader.php';

        $trace = new Trace();

        $loader = new \Textpattern\Loader(txpath.'/vendors');
        $loader->register();

        require txpath.'/lib/classTextile.php';
    } else {
        @include('classTextile.php');
    }
