This Spark seamlessly integrates Doctrine2 ORM in CI2. Doctrine2 is a powerful ORM based on DataMapper pattern, providing database abstraction, entities-based ORM complete with an entity manager, and a powerful command line tool to automate many tasks. This spark contains both Doctrine2 library and the CLI tool, but to make it work you'll have to copy some files by hand.
After installing this Spark, create a directory called
proxies inside your
application/models folder and make it writable:
$ cd /path/to/your/ci2/installation $ mkdir ./application/models/proxies $ chmod a+w ./application/models/proxies
You could use this Spark as any other, by loading it in your controller:
$this->load->sparks('doctrine2'); // entity manager is loaded $this->doctrine2->em(...);
To make access to entity manager more comfortable, use this:
$this->load->sparks('doctrine2'); $this->em = $this->doctrine2->em; // your Entity Manager is now quickly available $this->em(...);
To enable CLI tool, follow these instructions:
tools folder from Spark directory to your CI2 installation path (if you're using Sparks you should already have a
tools directory in your installation path):
$ cd /path/to/your/ci2/installation
$ cp ./sparks/doctrine2/
Use the CLI tool from your
$ tools/doctrine COMMAND PARAMS
Remember that your model entities will have to be placed in
application/models directory, while generated proxies will be put in
There is no known bugs so far, but some feature is missing from a "standard"
$this->load->spark()is unavailable at this stage. I also tried with a
post_controller_constructorhook but: 1) something didn't work and 2) this is an awful workaround and the right way is to getting sparks autoloading functionality to work as intended. This will therefore be addressed in a future release.
$this->emif Doctrine2 spark is autoloaded, but I'll have to solve previous point, obviously.
If you could find solutions to above problems, please contact me or send a pull request on GitHub project page: https://github.com/stickgrinder/doctrine2-spark

Thanks to Joseph Wynn for his clear tutorial, and thanks to all that will find (and fix!) bugs, send me nice twits and offer me some beer&pizza! :)
