# Jun 30th 2021, 22:18 rightscoreanalysis ah because my method was statc :)
# Jun 30th 2021, 22:18 rightscoreanalysis Using $this when not in object context
# Jun 30th 2021, 22:17 rightscoreanalysis I did the same: protected $_credentials; then using $this->_crednetialsd
# Jun 30th 2021, 22:17 rightscoreanalysis in the core I can see: protected $_validCiphers = ['aes']; used as: $this->$_validCiphers
# Jun 30th 2021, 20:07 kevin.pfeifer basically PSR-4 says, that a namespace has to correspond with the folder-structure the class is located
# Jun 30th 2021, 20:06 kevin.pfeifer and yes, there is the whole psr-4 autloading standard as well if you want to read into that as well (which you definitely don't need to) https://www.php-fig.org/psr/psr-4/
# Jun 30th 2021, 20:05 kevin.pfeifer here for the app src directory https://github.com/cakephp/app/blob/master/composer.json#L29
# Jun 30th 2021, 20:05 kevin.pfeifer and the same goes for the cakephp core, but just with another namepsace https://github.com/cakephp/cakephp/blob/master/composer.json#L75
# Jun 30th 2021, 20:05 rightscoreanalysis awesome thanks for the pointers
# Jun 30th 2021, 20:04 kevin.pfeifer well evertyhing in your `src` directory starts with `\App` because of what is defined in the composer.json
# Jun 30th 2021, 20:04 rightscoreanalysis I guess I can also refer to the Utility classes in the cake core
# Jun 30th 2021, 20:04 kevin.pfeifer well its the combo of namespacing with autoloading which composer automatically does https://www.php.net/manual/en/language.oop5.autoload.php
# Jun 30th 2021, 20:03 kevin.pfeifer https://www.php.net/manual/en/language.namespaces.basics.php
# Jun 30th 2021, 20:03 rightscoreanalysis yeah i have been on a cake2 project for some time so I had to un-learn a lot :)
# Jun 30th 2021, 20:02 greg138 That old plugin seems to be about making Twitter "look like" a database, which seems like an abstraction that's not particularly useful.
# Jun 30th 2021, 20:02 kevin.pfeifer and yes, cakephp has nothing to do with that
# Jun 30th 2021, 20:02 kevin.pfeifer thats the magic of PHP namespaces ;)
# Jun 30th 2021, 20:02 greg138 CakePHP is just PHP...
# Jun 30th 2021, 20:02 rightscoreanalysis oh nice didn't realise that was possible
# Jun 30th 2021, 20:01 kevin.pfeifer either statically or create an object, however you like
# Jun 30th 2021, 20:01 kevin.pfeifer well then create a generic PHP class in `src/Utility/MyTwitter.php` , give it a namespace `App\Utility` And call it anywhere you like in your app with `\App\Utility\MyTwitter`
# Jun 30th 2021, 20:00 rightscoreanalysis can helpers work on the backend - in Cake I mostly see them used in the template files
# Jun 30th 2021, 19:59 rightscoreanalysis I guess so yes - if it was a model $this->TwitterApi->send($foo) typ of thing
# Jun 30th 2021, 19:58 kevin.pfeifer so you basically want a Helper Class which serves you as an helper between the Twitter PHP API and your app?
# Jun 30th 2021, 19:57 rightscoreanalysis https://github.com/cakephp/cakephp/issues/5390
# Jun 30th 2021, 19:57 greg138 Oh, sorry, table-less models, not model-less forms...
# Jun 30th 2021, 19:56 greg138 Where did you read that about Cake3? https://book.cakephp.org/3/en/core-libraries/form.html
# Jun 30th 2021, 19:55 rightscoreanalysis component is not applicable, a plugin would not solve this, not sure that it is a behaviour
# Jun 30th 2021, 19:55 rightscoreanalysis so I am wondering how I can implement something similar in Cake4
# Jun 30th 2021, 19:53 rightscoreanalysis I read that since cake3 it is no longer possible to use the table-less models
# Jun 30th 2021, 19:53 rightscoreanalysis I am modifying an old Cake2 plugin that integrates with Twitter's API. In the old plugin there is a model file: https://github.com/voycey/cakephp-twitter-api/blob/master/Model/Twitter.php
# Jun 30th 2021, 15:41 gutocf Hello, I'm trying to create fixtures with the vierge-noire/cakephp-fixture-factories plugin for a belongs to many association with data on the join table, but i didn't find how. Can someone help me with this?
# Jun 30th 2021, 15:12 martin but in most cases it is not a problem I guess
# Jun 30th 2021, 15:11 martin or a setting on patchEntity?
# Jun 30th 2021, 14:51 dereuromark Do we need a patchIfModified() one?
# Jun 30th 2021, 14:40 ndm Can you maybe supply a small example setup? I'm wondering whether the check in the core might be a bit to strict, or if it's actually a configuration issue.
# Jun 30th 2021, 14:38 martin ok, I wanted to not send update to endpoint when fields are not changed, but I patch the full array, now I only patch the fields that are changed
# Jun 30th 2021, 14:36 ndm patching a field will always mark it as dirty, no matter whether the content is identical
# Jun 30th 2021, 14:35 ndm I probably shouldn't have said "target", given that this is a special term in associations. I really just ment the table class for the association alias. Associations aren't singletons like tables, so different targets should generally be no problem, as that's association config, not table config.
# Jun 30th 2021, 14:35 martin or does that only happen with the webservice. that is also possible, I see dirty fields but original is empty
# Jun 30th 2021, 14:26 martin hmm does PatchEntity also makes fields dirty that are not changed, I was thinking it would only make a field dirty when it is really changed
