Container Rule Templates

Each container rule type is a Recite CMS driver that lives in the ./lib/drivers/containers/rule directory.

Creating Your Driver File

The driver file is a PHP class with the filename controller.php which extends from the Module_Containers_Driver_Abstract class.

The class in this file must follow standard Recite CMS driver naming conventions. For example, if your driver is called weather, your controller.php file would have the path ./lib/drivers/containers/rule/weather/controller.php.

In this example, the file would define a single class called Driver_containers_rule_weather_controller

There are a number of methods you must implement to create your container rule, each of which is covered in this guide. One of these methods is the __toString(), which must return a brief description of what the container rule driver does.

Example 2.1. A sample container (controller.php)

    class Driver_containers_rule_weather_controller extends Module_Containers_Driver_Abstract
        public function __toString()
            return 'Display the latest weather';
        /* other code will go here */
