From now on, this website is deployed on push, and by the way, you can easily play with the website copy locally. In the Osm framework, new Osm_Project application allows reflecting over modules and classes regardless to which application they belong. New experimental project is aimed at quick creation of the Admin UI.

More details:

Sample Admin Panel Project v0.1.0

Initial iteration

An experimental project that will allow quick creation of the Admin UI and the HTTP API.

The whole idea is, that you'll define what kind of data the application operates, and the admin user interface will be generated from that. For example, the following class should create a table in the database, a search index, the product grid and the product editing form in the system backend:

 * @property string $sku #[
 *      DbColumn\String_, Filterable, Searchable, Sortable,
 *      Field\String_('SKU'), Column
 * ]
 * @property string $description #[
 *      DbColumn\Data, Searchable,
 *      Field\Text('Description'), Column
 * ]
class Product extends Record

In the first iteration, the first class and property attributes (Table, DbColumn, and more) have been defined.

We have also created the osmt generate command that will generate everything. In the initial iteration, it generates migration files that create database tables and search indexes. Website v0.2.3

Osm Core v0.9.1


The new version allows introspecting all modules and classes of the project regardless to which application they belong. Use it as follows:

use Osm\Project\App;

$result = [];

Apps::run(Apps::create(App::class), function (App $app) use (&$result) {
    // use $app->modules and $app->classes to introspect 
    // all modules and classes of the projects and its 
    // installed dependencies

    // put the introspection data you need into `$result`. Don't reference
    // objects of the `Osm_Project` application, as they'll won't work 
    // outside this closure. Instead, create plain PHP objects and arrays, 
    // and fill them as needed 

Notice. The Osm_Project application is for introspection only. Invoking user code in context of this application may produce unexpected results.
