# Apr 18th, 14:29 ricksaccous link me the plugin again
# Apr 18th, 14:29 this.impetus awesome.
# Apr 18th, 14:29 ricksaccous no
# Apr 18th, 14:29 this.impetus @ricksaccous which I assume is some version of `Cake\Use\<something>`?
# Apr 18th, 14:28 this.impetus @neon1024 sure, I'll check it out, jsut started this part of the project, not committed
# Apr 18th, 14:28 ricksaccous first of all to see if anything is available via composer just try loading the namespaced class directly
# Apr 18th, 14:28 neon1024 http://image.intervention.io/
# Apr 18th, 14:27 neon1024 I prefer Intervention image for this kind of thing :slightly_smiling_face:
# Apr 18th, 14:27 neon1024 So yeah, as @ricksaccous said
# Apr 18th, 14:27 this.impetus (i know because I initially tried haha)
# Apr 18th, 14:27 ricksaccous lol
# Apr 18th, 14:27 this.impetus composer won't even install the wrong one :slightly_smiling_face:
# Apr 18th, 14:26 this.impetus yeah I'm on the older versoin of the plugin tho
# Apr 18th, 14:26 neon1024 Well that might be the issue?
# Apr 18th, 14:26 ricksaccous heh
# Apr 18th, 14:26 neon1024 ..but as the latest release of the plugin requires cakephp 3.7.1
# Apr 18th, 14:26 this.impetus 3.6.2
# Apr 18th, 14:26 ricksaccous what version of cake are you on?
# Apr 18th, 14:26 this.impetus *go?
# Apr 18th, 14:26 this.impetus I did not, sorry, I'm a front-end guy learning this stuff; that step wasn't in the instructions. Where does the call to `$this->addPlugin()`
# Apr 18th, 14:26 ricksaccous the old way of doing it...
# Apr 18th, 14:26 neon1024 The plugin provides both methods of loading it seems
# Apr 18th, 14:26 neon1024 Then in AppView.php use `$this->loadHelper()`
# Apr 18th, 14:26 ricksaccous it seems he loaded the plugin via bootstrap
# Apr 18th, 14:25 neon1024 Did you use `$this->addPlugin()` in your Application.php?
# Apr 18th, 14:24 this.impetus And sorry that was a clipboard fail, the error I'm getting is "Helper class ThumberHelper could not be found."
# Apr 18th, 14:23 this.impetus Why might cake fail to find a helper installed via composer?
# Apr 18th, 14:23 this.impetus Well, actually; I did read the instructions wrong, I was placing the call to loadHelper in an individual Controller, not the AppView class. I've done this, now. Plugin instaleld via composer, loaded config/bootstrap. but getting "Plugin::load('Thumber', ['bootstrap' => true, 'routes' => true]);"
# Apr 18th, 14:17 this.impetus please nvm, I read the instructions wrong
# Apr 18th, 14:16 slackebot App\Controller\ImagesController::loadHelper()```
# Apr 18th, 14:16 this.impetus morning all you helpful cake enthusiasts. I'm trying to install and use a cake thumbnail plugin, https://github.com/mirko-pagliai/cakephp-thumber. In the CookBook's instructions for using a helper (https://book.cakephp.org/3.0/en/views/helpers.html#configuring-helpers) is a snippet, ```$this->loadHelper('helpername')```, inserted after the ```parent::intitialize()``` line of any controller, but I'm getting ```Call to undefined method
# Apr 18th, 12:41 admad @mehov sure can
# Apr 18th, 12:41 neon1024 Yeah, you’re right
# Apr 18th, 12:40 admad in fact it would be a pain, you will need `return null` if you don't want to explicitly calls `render()`
# Apr 18th, 12:39 admad there's isnt much practical value
# Apr 18th, 12:38 neon1024 I should think about the value of it really, rather than the code aesthetic
# Apr 18th, 12:38 neon1024 @admad I’ve had to use `return $this->render()` and `): ?Response` but it does work :slightly_smiling_face:
# Apr 18th, 12:31 mehov Hey guys, quick question: can an Entity, that doesn't directly belong to any of the tables, go to src/Model/Entity?
# Apr 18th, 11:38 admad @neon1024 you can add return type hint to your method as required
# Apr 18th, 10:03 neon1024 Would be a nice thing to have imho
# Apr 18th, 10:02 neon1024 With 4.0.0-alpha1 out, how close are we to getting method return types on controller methods?
