A minimal service manager setup

For some time now I’ve been using this pattern to interact with some services on Compufácil.

# !/usr/bin/env php
//file: cpf-service_manager.php
use Zend\ServiceManager\ServiceManager;
use Zend\Mvc\Service\ServiceManagerConfig;

require __DIR__.'/../Backend/vendor/autoload.php';
$applicationConfig = require __DIR__.'/../Backend/config/application.config.php';
$serviceManager = new ServiceManager(new ServiceManagerConfig());
$serviceManager->setService('ApplicationConfig', $applicationConfig);

return $serviceManager;

With it in hands I can simply create a file like this.

# !/usr/bin/env php
//file: cpf-client-remove
use Core\Service\ParameterFactory;
use Application\Service\Client\Client as ClientService;
$identifier = $argv[1];
$serviceManager = require_once __DIR__.'/cpf-service_manager.php';
$clientService = $serviceManager->get('Application\Service\Client\Client');

$where = [];
if (is_int($identifier)) {
    $where['id'] = $identifier;
} else {
    $where['email'] = $identifier;

$where['hash'] = ClientService::DELETE_CONFIRM_HASH;
$params = ParameterFactory::factory($where);

So I can interact with the services easily and yet with the power of PHP’s CLI interface. I know Zend Framework has it’s own Cli API, but it’s boring having to deal with routes to specify parameters. Using the PHP’s API argv, argv is much more natural IMHO.

Usually I take care to just call my services on this level, the logic itself resides on the service which is covered by unit tests.
