Hoa central

Hoa is a modular, extensible and structured set of PHP libraries. Moreover, Hoa aims at being a bridge between industrial and research worlds.


This library allows to interact easily with a terminal: getoption, cursor, window, processus, readline etc.


With Composer, to include this library into your dependencies, you need to require `hoa/console`:

```json { "require": { "hoa/console": "~2.0" } } ```

Please, read the website to get more informations about how to install.

Quick usage

We propose a quick overview of some features: cursor, window, readline, processus and finally getoption.


The Hoa\Console\Cursor class allows to manipulate the cursor. Here is a list of some operations:

The API is very straightforward. For example, we can use l, left or to move the cursor on the left column. Thus we move the cursor to the left 3 times and then to the top 2 times:

```php Hoa::move('left left left up up'); ```

… or with Unicode symbols:

```php Hoa::move('← ← ← ↑ ↑'); ```

This method moves the cursor relatively from its current position, but we are able to move the cursor to absolute coordinates:

```php Hoa::moveTo(13, 42); ```

We are also able to save the current cursor position, to move, clear etc., and then to restore the saved position:

```php Hoa::save(); // save Hoa::move('↓'); // move below Hoa::clear('↔'); // clear the line echo 'Something below…'; // write something Hoa::restore(); // restore ```

Another example with colors:

```php Hoa::colorize( 'underlined foreground(yellow) background(#932e2e)' ); ```

Please, read the API documentation for more informations.


The Hoa\Console\Mouse class allows to listen the mouse actions and provides the following listeners: mouseup, mousedown, wheelup and wheeldown. Example:

```php $mouse = HoagetInstance(); $mouse->on('mousedown', function ($bucket) { print_r($bucket->getData()); });

$mouse::track(); ```

And then, when we left-click, we will see:

``` Array ( [x] => 69 [y] => 30 [button] => left [shift] => [meta] => [ctrl] => ) ```

When we left-click while hiting the shift key, we will see:

``` Array ( [x] => 71 [y] => 32 [button] => left [shift] => 1 [meta] => [ctrl] => ) ```

This is an experimental API.


The Hoa\Console\Window class allows to manipulate the window. Here is a list of some operations:

Furthermore, we have the hoa://Event/Console/Window:resize event channel to listen when the window has been resized.

For example, we resize the window to 40 lines and 80 columns, and then we move the window to 400px horizontally and 100px vertically:

```php Hoa::setSize(40, 80); Hoa::moveTo(400, 100); ```

If we do not like our user, we are able to minimize its window:

```php Hoa::minimize(); sleep(2); Hoa::restore(); ```

We are also able to set or get the title of the window:

```php Hoa::setTitle('My awesome application'); ```

Finally, if we have a complex application layout, we can repaint it when the window is resized by listening the hoa://Event/Console/Window:resize event channel:

```php event('hoa://Event/Console/Window:resize') ->attach(function (Hoa $bucket) { $data = $bucket->getData(); $size = $data['size'];

echo 'New dimensions: ', $size['x'], ' lines x ', $size['y'], ' columns.', "\n"; }); ```

The Hoa\Console\Readline\Readline class provides an advanced readline which allows the following operations:

It supports UTF-8. It is based on bindings, and here are some:

Thus, to read one line:

```php $readline = new Hoa(); $line = $readline->readLine('> '); // “> ” is the prefix of the line. ```

The Hoa\Console\Readline\Password allows the same operations but without printing on STDOUT.

```php $password = new Hoa(); $line = $password->readLine('password: '); ```

We are able to add a mapping with the help of the Hoa\Console\Readline\Readline::addMapping method. We use \e[… for \033[, \C-… for Ctrl-… and a character for the rest. We can associate a character or a callable:

```php $readline->addMapping('a', 'z'); // crazy, we replace “a” by “z”. $readline->addMapping('-R', function ($readline) { // do something when pressing Ctrl-R. }); ```

We are also able to manipulate the history, thanks to the addHistory, clearHistory, getHistory, previousHistory and nextHistory methods on the Hoa\Console\Readline\Readline class.

Finally, we have autocompleters that are enabled on Tab. If one solution is proposed, it will be inserted directly. If many solutions are proposed, we are able to navigate in a menu to select the solution (with the help of keyboard arrows, Enter, Esc etc.). Also, we are able to combine autocompleters. The following example combine the Word and Path autocompleters:

```php $functions = get_defined_functions(); $readline->setAutocompleter( new Hoa([ new Hoa(), new Hoa($functions['internal']) ]) ); ```

Here is an example of the result:

Autocompleters in action

On Windows, a readline is equivalent to a simple fgets(STDIN).


The Hoa\Console\Processus class allows to manipulate processus as a stream which implements Hoa\Stream\IStream\In, Hoa\Stream\IStream\Out and Hoa\Stream\IStream\Pathable interfaces (please, see the `Hoa` library).

Basically, we can read STDOUT like this:

```php $processus = new Hoa('ls'); $processus->open(); echo $processus->readAll(); ```

And we can write on STDIN like this:

```php $processus->writeAll('foobar'); ```

etc. This is very classical.

Hoa\Console\Processus also proposes many events: start, stop, input, output and timeout. Thus:

```php $processus = new Hoa('ls'); $processus->on('output', function (Hoa $bucket) { $data = $bucket->getData(); echo '> ', $data['line'], "\n"; }); $processus->run(); ```

We are also able to read and write on more pipes than 0 (STDOUT), 1 (STDIN) and 2 (STDERR). In the same way, we can set the current working directory of the processus and its environment.

We can quickly execute a processus without using a stream with the help of the Hoa\Console\Processus::execute method.


The Hoa\Console\Parser and Hoa\Console\GetOption classes allow to parse a command-line and get options and inputs values easily.

First, we need to parse a command-line, such as:

```php $parser = new Hoa(); $parser->parse('-s –long=value input'); ```

Second, we need to define our options:

```php $options = new Hoa( [ // long name type short name // ↓ ↓ ↓ ['short', Hoa::NO_ARGUMENT, 's'], ['long', Hoa::REQUIRED_ARGUMENT, 'l'] ], $parser ); ```

And finally, we iterate over options:

```php $short = false; $long = null;

// short name value // ↓ ↓ while(false !== $c = $options->getOption($v)) { switch($c) { case 's': $short = true;


case 'l': $long = $v;

break; } }

var_dump($short, $long); // bool(true) and string(5) "value". ```

Please, see API documentation of Hoa\Console\Parser to see all supported forms of options (flags or switches, long or short ones, inputs etc.).

It also support typos in options. In this case, we have to add:

```php case '__ambiguous': $options->resolveOptionAmbiguity($v);

break; ```

If one solution is found, it will select this one automatically, else it will raise an exception. This exception is caught by Hoa\Console\Dispatcher\Kit when using the hoa script and a prompt is proposed.

Thanks to the `Hoa` library and the `Hoa` library (with its dedicated kit Hoa\Console\Dispatcher\Kit), we are able to build commands easily. Please, see all Bin/ directories in different libraries (for example `Hoa`) and `Hoa/Core/Bin/Hoa.php` to learn more.
