Certified WoWRoster AddOn

Certified WoWRoster AddOn

AddOns that conform to our Coding Standards and the basic outline described within this document, will be given a "AddOn Framework Standards Compliant" stamp of approval.


Requirements for Approval


Basics of an AddOn

The following are required to run the WoWRoster back-end and to be able to run any AddOns
>Roster Requirements<

The AddOn system is designed so that you can mod the roster base without having to change the base code as it could change a lot between versions.
Hopefully with this system we will be closer to having a drop-in module system without having to mod a lot of the base files each time.

We will be constantly refining the system as we go along.
So with each new version of Roster, some AddOns may break (not work in the new WoWRoster)

Warning.png Important: DO NOT use php short tags in your php files as stated in the WoWRoster Coding Standards
Use the normal "long tag" as short tags can break page rendering with php "short_tags" set to "Off"

NO! <?
YES <?php
NO! <?=$var; ?>
YES <?php echo $var; ?>


Changes Since 1.7.3


AddOn Framework

Features

  1. Uses output buffering, which means all the output is stored in a variable that is sent to the browser
  2. Do not have to include Roster's conf.php
  3. Do not have to include/declare $roster object
  4. Do not have to connect to Roster's database
  5. Do not have to include your inc/conf.php
  6. AddOn files: inc/conf.php, style.css, inc/update_hook.php, and locale files are OPTIONAL!
    Even additional locale files are optional, enUS.php is the default locale, and is required if you have locale files


What it does

  1. Includes all Roster config variables for you to use ($roster->config)
  2. Includes all Roster SQL functions for your use ($roster->db)
  3. Includes all Roster and AddOn language variables for you ($roster->locale->wordings, $roster->locale->act)
  4. Includes all Roster css styles
  5. The Roster header, footer, and menu are included to your files.
    These can be disabled if needed, more below...

Best of all, this is transparent to you!


AddOn Directory Structure

Here is an example of an AddOn's directory structure

roster/
|_ addons/
   |_ addonname/
      |_ admin/
      |  |_ index.php
      |  |_ other.php
      |
      |_ char/
      |  |_ index.php
      |  |_ other.php
      |
      |_ guild/
      |  |_ index.php
      |  |_ other.php
      |
      |_ inc/
      |  |_ conf.php
      |  |_ functions.php
      |  |_ install.def.php
      |  |_ search.inc
      |  |_ update_hook.php
      |
      |_ locale/
      |  |_ deDE.php
      |  |_ enUS.php
      |  |_ esES.php
      |  |_ frFR.php
      |
      |_ realm/
      |  |_ index.php
      |  |_ other.php
      |
      |_ index.php
      |_ somefile.php
      |_ style.css
      |_ util.php


admin Folder

The admin folder houses files for the Roster CP
Normally you'll never need files here because the Config API can handle most configuration needs

If you do need a custom config interface, this is where you make it

Info.png Note: The 'file' parameter is optional

This will normally grab your AddOn's config data from the 'roster_addon_config' table in the database and display the options using the Config API

If you need your own file, you need only to place index.php in addons/addonname/admin/

You can also have the best of both worlds
For example, the Members List and Character Info AddOns use both the Config API and custom files


char Folder (character scope)

Files for use in the Character scope
Data for the requested character is passed to the AddOn
If a=c:## is not specified or if this member does not exist, an error message will display

a=c: can be either the member id number, or name@rc-realm text

Info.png Note: 'rc' is the Region Code for US or EU realms

Accessing other files in the char scope is easy
addons/addonname/addonname/char/file.php is accessed like this:


guild Folder (guild scope)

Files for use in the Guild scope
Data for the requested guild is passed to the AddOn
If a=g: is not specified, the default guild/realm name set in Roster CP will show
If the guild does not exist or if there is no data for this guild, an error message will display

a=g: can be either the guild id number, or name@rc-realm text

Accessing other files in the guild scope is easy
addons/addonname/guild/file.php is accessed like this:


inc Folder

This folder houses special files not meant for direct access by the AddOn Framework

You can also use this folder for library, class, and/or function files

Place any files here that you do not or should not be accessed directly by the AddOn Framework


locale Folder

Where locale translation files go
See below for more info Locale Files


realm Folder (realm scope)

Files for use in the Realm scope
Data for the requested realm is passed to the AddOn
If a=r: is not specified, the default realm name set in Roster CP will show
If the realm does not exist or if there is no data for this realm, an error message will display

a=r: can be text

Accessing other files in the realm scope is easy
addons/addonname/realm/file.php is accessed like this:


The util Scope

Files not in these folders are considered under the util scope
This scope is not restricted if there is no guild or character information and can be accessed before data is in the database

Accessing other files in the util scope is easy
addons/addonname/file.php is accessed like this:


Other Files


Required Files

There are a few files that you must have


Linking to AddOns

You can link to any file in the root AddOn folder

The url to access each page is simple

Info.png Note: "file" is optional

The values explained


Creating the Installer

This installer requires a similar install file definition as DragonFly CMS, with some important exceptions:

You should create a file called inc/install.def.php with in it a class that is named identical to your AddOn's install directory name, plus Install.

Info.png Note: If your AddOn folder name is 'addon', then the install class would be named 'addonInstall'

The folder name will be referred to as your AddOn's basename.


Properties

Info.png Note: The downside to entering this info is that when you first submit your addon to the downloads section, you will not know the ID

$credits = array(
	array(	"name"=>	"Name",
		"info"=>	"Some Info"),
	array(	"name"=>	"Another Name",
		"info"=>	"More Info"),
);


AddOn Install Class Methods


Queries

Queries are added to the install using the $installer methods.


RosterCP API Entries

These entries can be used to build a config page through Roster's config page API


Creating/Editing Menu Entries

There are 5 functions for creating, changing, and editing menu entries.
Note the menu button titles should be unique per AddOn.
Using your basename in the key will work fine.


Other Installer Methods


Example File

Here is an example of an AddOn install file
This shows most of the methods that can be used in an installer

You can find more examples in the addons/ folder in roster

Creating the Search Class

Get customizable search results on the Roster search page for your AddOn
AddOn search classes are basically just SQL statements with some added functionality for the Search Framework
The search class can search by using SQL and process the data in a readable format for display
The search framework handles pagination, display, and basic form generation (each AddOn can specify additional form fields for its search)


Addon Class

Each AddOn utilizes a hook file /inc/search.inc.php to include a customized search for that AddOn


Properties


Methods

Constructor

Used to set up data needed for your search class

Use this to populate $this->open_table, $this->close_table, and/or $this->options

search

search( $search , $limit=10 , $page=0 )
The meat and potatoes of your search class
Perform the SQL and process any returned data in this class method

add_result

add_result( $resultarray )
Required function for any search hook used to add result data to the search framework


Return Data

This data is returned to the search framework after your search hook is done processing data
This data must be passed to $this->add_result($item); to show up on the search results page


Info.png Note: The following variables are only displayed when $item['html'] is not set


Search Framework Variables


Example File

Here is an example of an AddOn search.inc file
From the "News" AddOn

You can find more examples in other AddOns such as memberslist or news

Roster Config API

This is the current functionality of the Roster Config API.
There are two classes of form types:

Items of the page, pageframe, and pagehide class contain option blocks.
Items of the blockframe or blockhide class contain options.


Menu Bar Items

Usage

In most cases the config_name is a reference to an entry in your locale file. Each entry you make needs to have a unique config name. The entry in the locale file needs to contain at least the prompt text, but can also contain hover help text by seperating them with a vertical bar '|'.

Options Blocks


Options


AddOn Config Function File

addons/addonname/admin/config.func.php


Locale Files

These are used in translating any text in your AddOn if you want to support multi-langages.
As you can see in the example below, we have a file for deDE which is the German language, enUS which is the English language, frFR for French, and esES for Spanish.

Roster currently supports deDE, enUS, frFR, and esES, these are taken out of character profiler based on what region of WOW they are using.

The folder structure for locale files is as follows:

roster/
|_ addons/
   |_ addonname/
      |_ locale/
         |_ deDE.php
         |_ enUS.php
         |_ esES.php
         |_ frFR.php

When using locale files, it is absolutely necessary to ALWAYS have enUS.php
The AddOn Framework will default to this file if a locale is not found for a specific locale

Example:


Using Locale Strings

When using these them in your script you can use something similar to this

$header_title = $roster->locale->wordings['locale_key']['some_key'];

or

$header_title = $roster->locale->act['some_key'];

The first example is to get a specific locale value
The second is a reference to the current locale set in Roster

Remember that Roster's locale files are already added, so you only have to add the stuff that is custom to your AddOn.

So if you need to check to make sure we have don't already have a translation, you can open the files in the "localization/" directory to see the default words that you don't have to duplicate.

Duplication may cause errors in the main Roster code, if you duplicate a main Roster locale variable, you will incur the wrath of the WoWRoster.net Dev Team


Example File

Example from the MembersList Roster AddOn

Template Parser

Available to AddOns is the template parser which enables making the layout of your AddOn easier and easier to edit.
Roster automatically includes the template parser on initialization.

The templates have {CONTAINERS} for the information from php. This {INFO} is replaced by the output of the php code.
This means you have full control of where these containers are displayed or whether they are at all.

Currently the only AddOn in the Roster core that uses templates is "News".
All examples below are from the "News" AddOn.


Getting Started

Create a folder in roster/templates/default/ with your AddOn's basename
Or create a templates/ folder in your addon folder
This folder will hold all the templates for your AddOn


The PHP Side

In your php files, we will be calling the $roster->tpl object to insert data into your template

// Assign template vars
$roster->tpl->assign_vars(array(
	'L_POSTEDBY' => $roster->locale->act['posted_by'],
	'L_EDIT'     => $roster->locale->act['edit'],
	'L_ADD_NEWS' => $roster->locale->act['add_news'],
 
	'U_ADD_NEWS'  => makelink('util-news-add'),
	'S_ADD_NEWS' => true,
	)
);

or

$roster->tpl->assign_var('VAR_NAME','value');

What happens here is that we are making and setting template variables.
Notice how the variables in available to the template are much simpler than the php variables
'L_POSTEDBY' as opposed to $roster->locale->act['posted_by']


This all all fine and good for variables, but what if you want a repeating section?
This is quite easy actually.

Here we will be reading from the database and creating a template block variable

while( $news = $roster->db->fetch($result) )
{
	$roster->tpl->assign_block_vars('news_row', array(
		'TITLE'         => $news['title'],
		'ID'            => $news['news_id'],
		'CONTENT'       => $news['content'],
		'COMMENT_COUNT' => $news['comm_count'],
		'AUTHOR'        => $news['author'],
		'DATE'          => $news['date_format'],
 
		'U_BORDER_S' => border('sorange','start',$news['title'],'60%'),
		'U_BORDER_E' => border('sorange','end'),
		'U_COMMENT'  => makelink('util-news-comment&amp;id=' . $news['news_id']),
		'U_EDIT'     => makelink('util-news-edit&amp;id=' . $news['news_id']),
 
		'L_COMMENT' => ($news['comm_count'] != 1 ?
			sprintf($roster->locale->act['n_comments'],$news['comm_count']) :
			sprintf($roster->locale->act['n_comment'],$news['comm_count'])),
		)
	);
}

This is very useful for tables with repeating rows.

Now we want to select the template we want to display.

$roster->tpl->set_filenames(array('body' => $addon['basename'] . '/news.html'));
$roster->tpl->display('body');

What happens here is we are assigning a 'handle' to a template file
Then we use that handle to display and output the template

You can assign multiple templates, then display them

$roster->tpl->set_filenames(array(
	'newshead' => $addon['basename'] . '/news_head.html',
	'body' => $addon['basename'] . '/news.html',
	'newsfooter' => $addon['basename'] . '/news_head.html'
	)
);
$roster->tpl->display('newshead');
$roster->tpl->display('body');
$roster->tpl->display('newsfooter ');

Or in the template file, you can include a template file

<!-- INCLUDE news/news_head.html -->

(This is an html comment that the parser picks up, then includes this template)


The Template Side

Now we are ready to make the template
This example is from the "News" AddOn

roster/templates/default/news/news.html
or
roster/addons/news/templates/news.html

<!-- INCLUDE news/news_head.html -->

<!-- BEGIN news_row -->

{news_row.U_BORDER_S}

{news_row.CONTENT}
<hr />
<div style="text-align:left;">
	<span style="float:right;">
	<a href="{news_row.U_COMMENT}">{news_row.L_COMMENT}</a> | <a href="{news_row.U_EDIT}">{L_EDIT}</a></span>
	{L_POSTEDBY}: {news_row.AUTHOR} - {news_row.DATE}
</div>

{news_row.U_BORDER_E}
<br />
<!-- END news_row -->

<!-- IF S_ADD_NEWS --><!-- INCLUDE news/news_foot.html --><!-- ENDIF -->

See how all the variables are here, but wrapped in braces? { }
These are the variables you assigned in the php file

Notice the 'BEGIN news_row'?
This is the beginning of our repeating section

	$roster->tpl->assign_block_vars('news_row', array(
		'TITLE'         => $news['title'],
		'ID'            => $news['news_id'],

The variables 'TITLE' and 'ID' are available in this loop by appending the loop name 'news_row' and a period to the variable

	<a href="{news_row.U_COMMENT}">{news_row.L_COMMENT}</a> | <a href="{news_row.U_EDIT}">{L_EDIT}</a></span>

We will try to add more about templates, if anyone finds a good resource for phpbb, eqdkp, or DF templates, let us know...


AddOn Update Hook

The update hook is a file that ties into the lua upload process
You can specify any additional lua files you may you need

There are a few hook modes that an AddOn can make use of


Properties

The following variables are required in the update hook class


Methods

	function addonUpdate($data)
	{
		$this->data = $data;
	}

The following methods are reserved for update hooks
Descriptions for these methods are above and are not required

These function fairly simmilar

You can add other methods or properties as you wish, but be warned that Roster may implement more update hook methods in future versions


Additional LUA Files During Update

The update class in Roster allows an addon to add more lua files for upload during the update process.

In your addon update hook class, add a member variable called $files.
This is an array of lua files you would like to add to the update process.

Specify the filename, without the .lua extension, in the update hook class constructor.

Info.png Note: These file names must be lower case so they pass correctly through the parser.

	function addonnameUpdate( $data )
	{
		$this->data = $data;
		$this->files[] = 'luafilename';
		$this->files[] = 'anotherluafilename';
	}

The uploaded lua data is available in Update::uploadData

$update->uploadData['luafilename']
$update->uploadData['anotherluafilename']


Example Update Hook File

This is an example update hook file
Look at memberslist and pvplog (example of additional lua file upload and processing) for more complex examples

Variables and Functions for AddOns

There are many variables, functions, and classes available for Addons to use


Variables

This is a list of variables that are available for your Addons

All variables are available whether during update hooks or in the framework


Variable Calls

These are added to index.php for some additional support

If you add these to your addon, you can turn off the header, footer and menu on the page, these are always enabled by default.

$roster->output['show_header'] = false;  // Disable the roster header
$roster->output['show_menu'] = false;    // Disable roster menu
$roster->output['show_footer'] = false;  // Disable roster footer 

$roster->output['show_menu'] accepts a string or an array of button panel names to display
When building an addon, you can build your own button listing that only displays on your addon pages
Pass a string for only one set of buttons, or pass an array for multiple sets of buttons

$roster->output['show_menu'] = array('util' => 1);  // Display only the util button panel, default opened
$roster->output['show_menu'] = array('util' => 1,'char' => 0);  // Display only the util and char button panels: util default opened, char default closed
$roster->output['show_menu']['custom'] = 1;  // Display the default panels and the custom button panel, default opened 

$roster->output['html_head'] = 'string';

Accepts any string needing to be in the html header for your addon, such as javascript inclusion
roster_header.tpl will pick this variable up and place its contents in the header

$roster->output['body_attr'] = 'string';

Accepts any string needing to be in the <body> tag in roster_header.tpl

$roster->output['body_onload'] = 'string';

Accepts any string needing to be in <body onload=""> in roster_header.tpl


Any output needed, just print or echo it
Roster uses php's output buffering to capture all print or echo commands
Then it echos the output where needed


Functions

This is a list of functions that are available for your Addons

View Roster:FunctionsOverview for details on available Roster functions


Roster Authorization

Like those nifty log-in boxes in RosterCP?
Now you can easily add one to your addon!

This checks if the user has admin access

// ----[ Check log-in ]-------------------------------------
// Disallow viewing of the page
if( !$roster->auth->getAuthorized($required_level) )
{
	print
	'<span class="title_text">Some Title</span><br />'.
	$roster->auth->getLoginForm();
 
	return; //Kicks out of the AddOn and back to the Roster framework
}
// ----[ End Check log-in ]--------------------------------- 

Also note that there is a log in box in the menu.


Addon Credits

Link = http://[www.someurl.net]/roster/?p=credits (SEO: http://[www.someurl.net]/roster/credits.html)
To get credits on the main credit page, set the $credits array in the AddOn's inc/install.def.php file

var $credits = array(
	array(	"name"=>	"Author Name",
		"info"=>	"Extra Info"),
);

Replace the following

(Use <br> for line breaks)

You can add multiple arrays inside the main one to add more credits
(Try not to add too many, we don't wanna clutter the credits page now do we?)


Tooltips

/**
 * Makes a tootip and places it into the tooltip array
 *
 * @param string $var
 * @param string $content
 */
function setTooltip( $var , $content )

Creates a js variable for use with overlib
Instead of outputting text in the html, you can create a js variable that holds this instead

/**
 * Easy all in one function to make overlib tooltips
 * Creates a string for insertion into any html tag that has "onmouseover" and "onmouseout" events
 *
 * @param string $tooltip | Tooltip as a string (delimited by "\n" character)
 * @param string $caption | (optional) Text to set as a true OverLib caption
 * @param string $caption_color | (optional) Color for the caption
 * Default is 'ffffff' - white
 * @param bool $mode| (optional) Options 0=colorize,1=clean,2=pass through
 * Default 0 (colorize)
 * @param string $locale | Locale so color parser can work correctly
 * Only needed when $colorize is true
 * Default is $roster_conf['roster_lang']
 * @param string $extra_parameters | (optional) Extra OverLib parameters you wish to pass
 * @return unknown
 */
function makeOverlib( $tooltip , $caption='' , $caption_color='' , $mode=0 , $locale='' , $extra_parameters='' )

Returns this string for use in any html tag that supports onmouseover and onmouseout events

onmouseover="return overlib(overlib_'.$num_of_tips.$caption.$extra_parameters.');" onmouseout="return nd();"

For more info about makeOverlib() and its supporting functions, look at functions.lib.php
