Power Tools is a third party command line utility for Invision Power Suite developers. It aims to aid in development by packaging several useful command line script and applications together in one easy to use application.
If you are on Linux, there is an optional executable included in the release package which you can extract and copy to /usr/local/binfor convenience.
Otherwise, just extract the included ptools.phar file to the directory of your IPS installation. Then, from your terminal window, navigate to the applications directory and run ptools.phar as you would any other PHP script from the command line,
$ php ptools.phar Power Tools version 0.2 Usage: command [options] [arguments] Options: -h, --help Display this help message -q, --quiet Do not output any message -V, --version Display this application version --ansi Force ANSI output --no-ansi Disable ANSI output -n, --no-interaction Do not ask any interactive question -v|vv|vvv, --verbose Increase the verbosity of messages: 1 for normal output, 2 for more verbose output and 3 for debug Available commands: classmap Generate a map of error codes for classes in an IPS application help Displays help for a command list Lists commands tinker Launches an interactive shell interpreter for an IPS installation generate generate:activerecord Generates an Active Record boilerplate class generate:content-comment Generates a Content Comment boilerplate class generate:content-item Generates a Content Item boilerplate class generate:content-node Generates a Content Node boilerplate class proxy proxy:regen (Re)generates all proxy classes for the application
Tinker is one of Power Tools most.. well,powerfulfeatures! The name tinker was inspired by Laravel's own "tinker" command, and it essentially operates in the same manner.
Both are powered byPsySH, an application that provides an extremely powerful PHP REPL for your applications.
Stop making your life difficult by executing arbitrary code in random modules for testing, or worse yet, actually trying to use the native PHP CLI interpreter.
Need to test if your Item class is working correctly? Just pop into the REPL and give it a whirl!
Everything in the tinker shell essentially works as your application does when run through the web browser. You can even get documentation on class methods right from within the interpreter,
PsySh is a truly awesome tool. To learn more about it and all the features it offers you, check it out onPsySh.org.
Due to the nature of the IPS 4.x framework, several useful features of your IDE may become non-functional (suggestions, code completion, etc). This command will generate proxy classes for IPS (including 3rd-party applications), so your IDE will know how to use IPS style classes.
This command was based off of @CodingJungle's ownProxy Class Generator script.
The classmap command maps unique ID numbers to your applications class files. These ID numbers are then stored and maintained for use in error codes.
By maintaining and actively using a proper error code scheme, you can easily and transparently map the location of errors that are triggered in production.
For more information on this feature, refer to the originalClassmapscript.
