Forma

Addon by Erin Dalzell

Forma Main Screenshot

Latest Version

This package provides an easy way to let users configure your addon.

Requirements

  • PHP 7.4+
  • Statamic v3

Installation

You can install this package via composer using:

composer require edalzell/forma

The package will automatically register itself.

Usage

First, create a config.yaml file in resources\config that contains the blueprint for your configuration. As an example, see Mailchimp's, here.

Then, in the boot method of your addon's Service Provider add:

\Edalzell\Forma\Forma::add('silentz/mailchimp', ConfigController::class);

The second parameter is optional and only needed if you need custom config handling (see Extending below)

Once you do that, you get a menu item in the cp that your users can access and use. All data is saved into your addon_handle.php in the config folder.

menu item

Permissions

There is a Manage Addon Settings permission that must be enabled to allow a user to update the settings of any Forma-enabled addons.

Extending

If your addon needs to wangjangle the config before loading and after saving, create your own controller that extends \Edalzell\Forma\ConfigController and use the preProcess and postProcess methods.

For example, the Mailchimp addon stores a config like this:

'user' => [
    'check_consent' => true,
    'consent_field' => 'permission',
    'merge_fields' => [
        [
            'field_name' => 'first_name',
        ],
    ],
    'disable_opt_in' => true,
    'interests_field' => 'interests',
],

But there is no Blueprint that supports that, so it uses a grid, which expects the data to look like:

'user' => [
    [
        'check_consent' => true,
        'consent_field' => 'permission',
        'merge_fields' => [
            [
                'field_name' => 'first_name',
            ],
        ],
        'disable_opt_in' => true,
        'interests_field' => 'interests',
    ]
],

Therefore in its ConfigController:

protected function postProcess(array $values): array
{
    $userConfig = Arr::get($values, 'user');

    return array_merge(
        $values,
        ['user' => $userConfig[0]]
    );
}

protected function preProcess(string $handle): array
{
    $config = config($handle);

    return array_merge(
        $config,
        ['user' => [Arr::get($config, 'user', [])]]
    );
}
