zem_tpl Textpattern Plugin Template

An improved template for Textpattern plugins.
zem_tpl is an improved template for Textpattern plugins. It’s intended mainly for use with the PHP command line client, though it will work fine running on a web server.

Features:

  1. Help text is in Textile format
  2. No need to escape quotes in your code
  3. Plugin code syntax will be checked at compile time
  4. Works with syntax-highlighting text editors

The package contains two files, zem_tpl.php and zem_plugin.php.

zem_tpl.php contains the code to compile plugins into the format required by the Textpattern plugin installer. zem_plugin.php is the template itself. Make a copy of this file and edit it to write your plugin.

Typical use, at the command line:

$ cp zem_plugin.php abc_myplugin.php
[edit abc_myplugin.php]
$ php abc_myplugin.php > abc_myplugin-0.1.txt

abc_myplugin-0.1.txt is the finished plugin, ready to install.

In order to use Textile in the help section, classTextile.php must be in the include_path. The simplest way to ensure this is to copy it to the current directory.

Alternatively, both classTextile.php and zem_tpl.php may be placed elsewhere in the include_path.
