Clearbricks =========== What is this? ------------- No, Clearbricks is not yet another framework. Clearbricks is not cool at all and does not even have a nice website. It won't make you smart neither have great ideas for you. Clearbricks is only about code and efficiency, consider it as a toolbox. And please, do me a favor, don't call it a framework :-) How do I use it? ---------------- Clearbricks is about "using what we need when we need it". Pick the module(s) you need and add it to your code. The only thing you'll always need is the "common" directory. Once you're ready, you have to create a _common.php file on top of your Clearbricks path (or wherever you want) and add $__autoload entries for your modules. Take a look at the _common.php file. Of course, you're encouraged to use the $__autoload magic for your own classes. Use it with Subversion ---------------------- You may think that all this subdirectories is a mess. You're quite right. But one day, you'll find it cool to use Clearbricks modules in your subversion repository as some external properties. This day, you'll love me :-) Clearbricks subersion repository is located at: https://clearbricks.org/svn Here is an example of using Clearbricks and dbLayer in your own subversion repository as an external property: First, we create a Clearbricks root. $ mkdir clearbricks $ svn add clearbricks $ svn ci And now, add externals definitions $ cd clearbricks $ svn propedit svn:externals . Your editor fires up, type: common https://clearbricks.org/svn/trunk/common dblayer https://clearbricks.org/svn/trunk/dblayer Save and "svn up". Then, you can create a _common.php file wich will contain: <?php require dirname(__FILE__).'/common/_main.php'; $__autoload['dbLayer'] = dirname(__FILE__).'/dblayer/dblayer.php'; ?> You're done!
