How to organize workspace for MikoPBX extension developement.

Example of organizing a working directory

MikoPBX
├── Core
│   ├── ...
│   └── ...
├── Extensions
│   ├── ModuleBackup
│   └── ModuleYourModule
└── MikoPBXUtils
   └──node_modules
  • Core - files from the repository mikopbx/Core
  • Extensions - directory for storing module files
  • ModuleBackup - files from the repository mikopbx/ModuleBackup
  • ModuleYourModule - directory with files of your module
  • MikoPBXUtils - directory with external tools
  • node_modules - node-js modules

Environment

We widely use the composer to manage dependents libraries, NodeJS runtime for Javascript code processing.
# Install PHP 7.4
# https://dev.to/amulya_shahi/how-to-download-install-php-7-4-6-manually-on-windows-10-4io0
# Install GIT
# Just go to https://git-scm.com/download/win and the download will start automatically.
# Install composer
# Download and run https://getcomposer.org/Composer-Setup.exe
# Install xdebug PHP extension
# https://xdebug.org/docs/install#windows
# Install nodeJS
# Download and run https://nodejs.org/en/download/
# Create DIR for example MikoPBX/MikoPBXUtils, enter to it
In MikoPBXUtils dir create file babel.config.json:
babel.config.json
{
"presets": [["airbnb", {
"targets": {
"chrome": 50,
"ie": 11,
"firefox": 45
}
}]]
}
In MikoPBXUtils dir create file package.json:
package.json
{
"devDependencies": {
"@babel/cli": "^7.14.3",
"@babel/core": "^7.14.3",
"@babel/polyfill": "^7.12.1",
"@babel/preset-env": "^7.14.2",
"babel-preset-airbnb": "^5.0.0",
"eslint": "^7.27.0",
"eslint-config-airbnb-base": "^14.2.1",
"eslint-plugin-import": "^2.23.3"
}
}
Install all from package.json file
npm install
At this point, I strongly recommend closing ALL your terminal tabs and windows. This will mean opening a new terminal to continue with the next step. This is strongly recommended because some really strange path issues can arise with existing terminals (trust me, I have seen it!).

Clone the Core MikoPBX repository

Use GIT command to make similar to picture folder sctructure with MikoPBX sources.
MikoPBX
├── Core <- Clone https://github.com/mikopbx/Core.git here
├── Extensions
└── MikoPBXUtils
Install third party PHP libraries to MikoPBX/Core folder
cd MikoPBX/Core
composer install --ignore-platform-reqs

Create a new module structure

To create a new module for MikoPBX, you can use the ModuleTemplate repository as ready for use template.
Every MikoPBX module must have a unique identifier, i.e. you are developing a call back module with the identifier – ModuleYourModule
MikoPBX
├── Core
├── Extensions
│  └── ModuleYourModule
└── MikoPBXUtils
Сopy the script mod_replace.py to the Extensions dir and run it. It clones the ModuleTemplate repository and renames folders, files, namespaces and class names according to the new module unique id – ModuleYourModule.
cd MikoPBX/Extensions
python mod_replace.py ModuleMyNewMod
The name of the new module must begin with 'Module'

PHPStorm IDE

We advise using PHPStorm IDE because all MikoPBX code was written with this tool.
You have to download it by the next link and install it.
Create a new PHP empty Project from existing sources.
Setup the composer executable path according to this manual.
Setup the PHP interpreter path according to this manual.

PHPStorm: setup Babel

Babel is a toolchain that is mainly used to convert ECMAScript 2015+ code into a backwards compatible version of JavaScript in current and older browsers or environments.
Babel guarantees that the JS code will work the same in all web browsers.
The source JS files are located in directories:
  • MikoPBX/Core/sites/admin-cabinet/assets/js/src
  • MikoPBX/Extensions/*/public/assets/js/src
Files that the web interface uses are located in directories:
  • MikoPBX/Core/sites/admin-cabinet/assets/js/pbx
  • MikoPBX/Extensions/*/public/assets/js
With any modification of the source file, babel must create a final file.
