API for developers

We <3 people who code.

Folder structure

You can change everything in the file manager on your computer. The content folder contains the content files of the website. You can edit your website here. The media folder contains the media files of the website. You can store your images and files here. The system folder contains the system files of the website. You can find configuration files and the log file here.

The following configuration files and log files are available:

system/extensions/yellow-system.ini = file with system settings
system/extensions/yellow-language.ini = file with language settings
system/extensions/yellow-user.ini = file with user settings
system/extensions/yellow-extension.ini = file with extension settings
system/extensions/yellow-website.log = log file of the website

Tools

Web editor

You can edit your website in a web browser. The login page is available on your website as http://website/edit/. Log in with your user account. You can use the normal navigation, make some changes and see the result immediately. The built-in web editor allows you to edit content files and upload media files. It is a great way to update your website. Text formatting with Markdown is supported. HTML is also supported. Learn more about the web editor.

Web server

You can start a web server at the command line. The built-in web server is convenient for developers, designers and translators. This allows you to see your website on your computer and upload it to your web server later. Open a terminal window. Go to your installation folder, where the file yellow.php is. Type php yellow.php serve, you can optionally add a URL. Open a web browser and go to the URL shown. Learn more about the web server.

Static generator

You can generate a static website at the command line. The static site generator makes the entire website in advance, instead of waiting for a file to be requested. Open a terminal window. Go to your installation folder, where the file yellow.php is. Type php yellow.php generate, you can optionally add a folder and a location. This will generate a static website in the public folder. Upload the static website to your web server and generate a new one when needed. Learn more about the static generator.

Objects

With the help of the API you can access the file system and settings. The API is divided into several objects and basically reflects the file system. There's $this->yellow->content to access content files, $this->yellow->media to access media files and $this->yellow->system to access system settings. A fundamental object is $this->yellow->page to access the current page. The source code of the entire API can be found in file system/workers/core.php.

The following objects are available:

$this->yellow = access to API
$this->yellow->content = access to content files
$this->yellow->media = access to media files
$this->yellow->system = access to system settings
$this->yellow->language = access to language settings
$this->yellow->user = access to user settings
$this->yellow->extension = access to extensions
$this->yellow->lookup = access to lookup and normalisation methods
$this->yellow->toolbox = access to toolbox with helper methods
$this->yellow->page = access to current page

Events

With help of events the website informs you when something happens. First extensions are loaded and onLoad will be called. As soon as all extensions are loaded onStartup will be called. A request from the web browser can be handled with various events. In most cases the page content will be generated. If an error has occurred, an error page will be generated. Finally the page is output and onShutdown will be called.

The following events are available:

onCommand onCommandHelp onEditContentFile onEditMediaFile onEditSystemFile onEditUserAccount onLoad onLog onMail onParseContentElement onParseContentHtml onParseContentRaw onParseMetaData onParsePageExtra onParsePageLayout onParsePageOutput onRequest onShutdown onStartup onUpdate
