webtools not working when creating models, views and controllers

I'm having some problems while trying to get phalcon webtools working.

When using command line devtools I can create controllers and models without problems.

However, things aren't that easy with the webtools.

It correctly shows already created controllers and models:

And I can also edit them (http://i.imgur.com/orJweLl.png).

Apparently, Db connexion is ok, since webtools shows every table in the DB:

However, when trying to create a controller from the web interface, I got the next error:

> "Please specify a controller directory"

Same when trying to create a Model from a database table :

> "Database configuration cannot be loaded from your config file"

Or when trying to generate scaffold :

> "Adapter was not found in the config. Please specify a config variable [database][adapter]"

  • My app/config/config.php content:

    return new \Phalcon\Config(array(
    'database' => array(
      'adapter'     => 'Mysql',
      'host'        => 'localhost',
      'username'    => 'phalcon',
      'password'    => 'phalcon',
      'dbname'      => 'phalcon',
      'charset'     => 'utf8',
    ),
    'application' => array(   
        'controllersDir' => __DIR__ . '/../../app/controllers/',
        'modelsDir'      => __DIR__ . '/../../app/models/',
        'viewsDir'       => __DIR__ . '/../../app/views/',
        'pluginsDir'     => __DIR__ . '/../../app/plugins/',
        'libraryDir'     => __DIR__ . '/../../app/library/',
        'cacheDir'       => __DIR__ . '/../../app/cache/',
        'baseUri'        => '/phalconTest/',
    )
    

    ));

  • My public/webtools.config.php content:

    define('PTOOLS_IP', '192.168.248.135');
    define('PTOOLSPATH', 'C:/phalcon-devtools');
    
  • My public/webtools.php:

    use Phalcon\Web\Tools;
    require 'webtools.config.php';
    require PTOOLSPATH . '/scripts/Phalcon/Web/Tools.php';
    
    
    Tools::main(PTOOLSPATH, PTOOLS_IP);
    

Im running Phalcon 1.3.4 - Windows x86 for PHP 5.4.0 (VC9)

Thanks in advance

Thanks, 7thcubic.

Would that also explain the problems I'm having while trying to create Models ? I'll try your fix and give you some feedback.

I tried your fix and it didn't work for me.

Now I even have some php extra errors saying Constant PTOOLS_IP and PTOOLSPATH are already defined.

Some screenshots showing the error messages :

Any ideas ?

Thanks in advance

Edit:

I modified scripts/Phalcon/Builder/Component.php adding the next line:

$path = '../' . $path;

And now Controller generation works. But I still can't get Scaffolding and Model generation working. When trying to create a model I get 'Database configuration cannot be loaded from your config file' and it also show two messages telling that both PTOOLS_IP and PTOOLSPATH are already defined.

And for the scaffolding, now it shows two different new error messages: 'Builder doesn't knows where is the models directory' and 'Undefined index: modelsNamespace in C:\phalcon-devtools\scripts\Phalcon\Builder\Scaffold.php'. It also displays the PTOOLS_IP and PTOOLSPATH errors.

https://github.com/7thcubic/phalcon-devtools/commit/c8c37de04a50fedc13f9abf6631901c87e835cb0

Also having this same issue.

Scaffold: > Notice: Constant PTOOLS_IP already defined in C:\Path-to\public\webtools.config.php on line 30 > Notice: Constant PTOOLSPATH already defined in C:\Path-to\public\webtools.config.php on line 39

> Adapter was not found in the config. Please specify a config variable [database][adapter]

Models:

> Notice: Constant PTOOLS_IP already defined in C:\Path-to\public\webtools.config.php on line 30 > > Notice: Constant PTOOLSPATH already defined in C:\Path-to\webtools.config.php on line 39 > > Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in C:\Path-to\app\library\vendor\phalcon\devtools\scripts\Phalcon\Builder\AllModels.php on line 61 > > Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in C:\Path-to\app\library\vendor\phalcon\devtools\scripts\Phalcon\Builder\AllModels.php on line 61 > > Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in C:\Path-to\app\library\vendor\phalcon\devtools\scripts\Phalcon\Builder\AllModels.php on line 82 > > Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in C:\Path-to\app\library\vendor\phalcon\devtools\scripts\Phalcon\Builder\AllModels.php on line 82 > Adapter is not supported
