Basic usage

The Config API has received a completely overhauled API. Using the Config API, you can now retrieve at run-time any configuration property.

Currently, only the theme has configuration files.

The theme configuration files are stored in its resources/config folder.

Retrieve all properties

Use the get() method to retrieve all properties of a defined configuration file.

Let's grab all properties of the theme's application.config.php file:

$all = Config::get('application');

The above code is fetching all properties from the application.config.php file stored in the resources/config folder. Simply provide the file name without the .config.php extension as a parameter of the get() method.

// Grab all theme templates
$templates = Config::get('templates');

Retrieve a specific property

Depending of your application, you might need to retrieve only one specific property from a configuration file.

For this, simply use a dot syntax to specify your property. For example, let's retrieve the namespace property from the application.config.php file:

$namespace = Config::get('application.namespace');

Note: you can't set/modify configuration values at run-time. Configuration values are read only.

Theme configuration files

Here is a complete list of the configuration files stored inside the theme.

  • application: Main configuration file. You can specify your own class aliases inside this file.

  • constants: Allow you to define constant variables.

  • images: Allow you to register image sizes for your media library.

  • loading: Allow you to specify directories of classes for autoloading. By default, it is loading your theme's controller and model classes.

  • menus: Allow you to define custom navigation menu locations. More information in the WordPress codex.

  • sidebars: Help you register your sidebars for your website/application. Uses the same arguments found in the WordPress codex: register_sidebar().

  • supports: Equivalent to the add_theme_support() function.

  • templates: Handles the custom page template system of the framework. Define your templates inside this file by providing a key or key/value pairs.

Details on how to modify and use those configurations are explained inside each file.
