Support » Themes and Templates » Great work

  • First of all, your code rocks; nice work 😉
    I found this theme while developing a standard interface for themes. I started with something like this:

     * Interface WP_Theme.
     * We can be add two extras methods: get and set generic for class, or for each groups of methods:
     * getStyles(), setStyles(), getFilters(), addFilters() etc.
    interface WP_Theme
    	# Attrs:
    	private $_themeData;
    	private $_styles;
    	private $_scripts;
    	private $_actions;
    	private $_filters;
    	private $_sidebars;
    	private $_widgets;
    	// ¿? private $_plugins;
    	private $_registry; // (Optional). Example: Zend Registry instead CONSTANTS.
    	// Global
    	public function getThemeData();
    	public function setThemeData($file);
    	// Registry, note this: custom Zend_Registry
    	public function getRegistry();
    	public function setRegistry(Zend_Registry $registry);	// Force type
    	// Styles
    	public function addThemeStyle(); 		// Force WP_Styles?
    	public function removeThemeStyle();
    	// Scripts
    	public function addThemeScript();		// Force WP_Scripts?
    	public function removeThemeScript();
    	// Actions
    	public function addThemeAction();
    	public function removeThemeAction();
    	// Filters
    	public function addThemeFilter();
    	public function removeThemeFilter();
    	// Sidebars
    	public function addThemeSidebars(array $sidebars);
    	public function removeThemeSidebars(array $sidebars);
    	// Widgets
    	public function addThemeWidget(WP_Widget $widgets);
    	public function removeThemeWidget(WP_Widget $widgets);
    	// Prepare: Setup or init methods.
    	public function prepareTheme();
    	// Runs...
    	public function runBackend();
    	public function runFrontend();

    Time for proposals -ideas- for WordPress standar WP_Theme interface?

  • Extended with namespaces:

    class WP_Theme_MyTheme implements WP_Theme

    — Theme.php (class WP_Theme)
    — Theme/
    — MyTheme.php (class WP_Theme_MyTheme)
    — optional subdirs for theme: WP_Theme_MyTheme_Filter /Filter/
    — Filter/
    —- Filter.php (interface WP_Theme_Filter)


    Wow, that looks pretty cool. Have you built a theme based on this?

    Oops… sorry for… about 1 year delay 🙁

    …and the reply is “yes”, I’m using this system on all of my themes. For example at:

    But, ATM, is not a public work. I’m working on it to publish at Google Code, Gitub… 😉

    This example implements the new theme with NameSpaces and Controllers instead files (home.php, archive.php…):

    -- MyTheme/
    ------ Controller/
    -------- Front.php -- FronController: methods for all controllers
    You can add hooks from extensions to all controllers, example:
    public static function getPostImage($postID = null) {
    	if ( method_exists('WP_Theme_MyTheme_Extension_Images', 'getPostImage') )
    		return WP_Theme_MyTheme_Extension_Images::getPostImage($postID);
    	else return '';
    Controllers extends Front controller:
    -------- Index.php -- your index.php file
    Example methods from FrontController:
    -------- Home.php  -- ...
    -------- Archive.php
    ------ Extension/
    -------- Images.php -- Example to call a method from controller:
    ------ Widget/
    ------ Helper/
    ------ MyTheme.php

    functions.php load and init the theme class, example using Zend_Autoloader:

    $configFile 	= APPLICATION_PATH . DS . 'app.xml';
    $Theme 		= new WP_Theme_MyTheme($configFile, $autoloader);

    The class is your functions.php POO, this init your supports, extensiones, widgets…

    Now, you only need a simple index file to call the Controller of your app, its a bridge between WP and your app system:

    // AutoControllers:
    if ( is_home() )
    	$ControllerName = 'Home';
    elseif ( is_archive() || is_search() )
    	$ControllerName = 'Archive';
    elseif ( is_attachment() )
    	$ControllerName = 'Attachment';
    	$ControllerName = 'Index';
    // ### Run...
    $ClassName = "WP_Theme_MyTheme_Controller_{$ControllerName}";
    call_user_func_array(array($ClassName, 'renderView'), array($wp_query));

    Simple way index.php:
    call_user_func_array(array(WP_Theme_MyTheme_Controller_Index, 'renderView'), array($wp_query));

    *wp_query is optional.
