[Free Add-on ] Kotomi - Generic script bridge 0.0.1

Developer sample for basic script embedding

  1. XenForo Rocks
    This is mainly intended for developer use. It lets you embed a non-XenForo/non-MVC script (just about any PHP script should work) into the XenForo page and use XenForo functions such as permissions while still accessing the script from a standard URL (the XenForo route system is pretty much disregarded).

    So using this addon you can do a very basic integration of pretty much anything into XenForo - be it a blog, gallery, store, standalone script, etc. Probably even vBulletin if you wanted :p

    This example shows the header (top block of code) and footer (bottom line) you need to add to your existing script:

    $startTime = microtime(true);
    $kotomi_indexFile = "./";
    $kotomi_container = true;
    $fileDir = dirname(__FILE__)."/{$kotomi_indexFile}";
    require "{$fileDir}/library/Dark/Kotomi/KotomiHeader.php";
    echo "
    <title>kotomi test</title>
    Hello world!
    require "{$fileDir}/library/Dark/Kotomi/KotomiFooter.php";

    $kotomi_indexFile should be updated to the relative directory where XenForo's index.php can be found.
    $kotomi_container can be set to false for a raw integration (still passes through XenForo's framework etc, just without any XenForo HTML/CSS/templates being applied).

    The example gives the following output:


    (Notice how the URL is a real PHP script without routes being involved at all; it could be in a completely different directory if you wanted.)

    Navigation/breadcrumbs unfortunately need to be added and configured manually.
    Also removing the title text from within the page itself is as simple as editing the dark_kotomi template to your liking.
