My root project folder is:
In this folder I have a library I need to use:
Inside data_valid.php I include the library I need:
//data_valid.php include ('vendor\egulias\email-validator\src\EmailValidator.php');
The EmailValidator.php has dependencies:
//EmailValidator.php namespace Egulias\EmailValidator; use Egulias\EmailValidator\Result\InvalidEmail; use Egulias\EmailValidator\Validation\EmailValidation;
When I run the data_valid.php script I get the error:
Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Class "Egulias\EmailValidator\EmailLexer"
So, the data_valid.php file doesn't know where the EmailLexer.php is, being this file called from EmailValidation.php. If I include EmailLexer.php in data_valid.php it is found
//data_valid.php include ('vendor\egulias\email-validator\src\EmailValidator.php'); include ('vendor\egulias\email-validator\src\EmailLexer.php');
But more dependendencies are missing:
Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Class "Doctrine\Common\Lexer\AbstractLexer
It seems that PHP doesn't include the dependencies of a library automatically.
How do I do that?
PD. After some research I found that including:
It loads everything.
But I am still curious how to do it without using include 'vendor/autoload.php'. For example, I have a bunch of classes inside multiple files in a directory. In this scenario I need to call one class but that class depends in multiple classes defined in multiple files in that directory.
Use composer: https://getcomposer.org/
It also allows for manual inclusion of custom classes etc.
I don't recommend manually including all the necessary classes as you would need some recursive search for this anyway.
