Can anyone help me out with this problem I have? http://pastebin.com/3ccKKqSw thanks

Joe Palala 1:22am Apr 7
Heres the code btw. http://i.imgur.com/n7vtkrv.png

Joe Palala 1:25am Apr 7
Heres how my public/front.php looks like http://pastebin.com/0erhLDCV

Din-din Bautista 3:05am Apr 7
have you tried using Eden::i()->getActiveApp()->database() ?

Joe Palala 4:06am Apr 7
Tried that, it worked, now the this->_database object is null for some reason, thanks. `spl_object_hash() expects parameter 1 to be object, null given`

Din-din Bautista 4:13am Apr 7
Front->database() returns the default database set.

you might want to check front.php line 104 if it was able to set the default database.

Joe Palala 5:08am Apr 7
oh yeah,i should try debug(true)

Joe Palala 5:26am Apr 7
i got it fixed by doing this instead $this->_database = front()->database;

Din-din Bautista 5:45am Apr 7
^oh, yeah. explicitly stating the app would work. another implementation would be


injecting the database through the constructor :)

Joe Palala 6:31am Apr 7
thanks :)

Christian Blanquera 10:44am Apr 7
how about front()->getDatabase() ?

Christian Blanquera 10:45am Apr 7
oh nm it was covered :)

We are a start up looking for android apps designers and developers. This is part time and home based.

This job is perfect for newbies in mobile app development and design. The jobs are small and simple. Something that a newbie can finish in a day or two. Pros can probably finish 4 to 7 jobs a day.

Here is an awesome tip to newbies: They say the best way to learn is by practice. Nope, its getting paid while practicing ;)

Pay is from $10 to $20 per job.

Send me a PM.

No new version since 2 years, is EdenPHP have a future ?

Dan Michael Molina 12:00pm Dec 4
hello.. we have EdenPHP V3
Library: https://github.com/Openovate/eden
Framework: https://github.com/Openovate/Framework

Dan Michael Molina 12:02pm Dec 4
we also have a beta version of EdenJS for node https://www.npmjs.org/package/edenjs

Ghislain Augereau 12:09pm Dec 4
you never touch the lib since 2 year, still not udpate, and buggy :(

Christian Blanquera 12:30am Dec 5
Well we did open source it, so if there are somethings that you see wrong with it, make an issue. We still use eden v2 in a lot of our projects that we do here in our company so it's not exactly dead.

Christian Ehrhart 2:26pm Nov 5
Hi there,
a quick question about searching in a mysql-database.

I want to search with a "... LIKE '%mystring%' ..." and tried something like this:
$data_sql->addFilter("firstname LIKE '%%s%' OR lastname LIKE '%%s%'", $value, $value);

But this doesn't work. Any ideas, how to fix that?

Christian Ehrhart 9:37am Jun 6
Hi there,
I have a problem with inserting/updating a mysql-record and hope you can help me or give me a hint.

I have a varchar-field and I want to insert a number with leading zero (a phone-number). But when I write this value into the $settings-array, the leading zero will be cut off. Eden tries to store it as integer.

Any ideas, how I can prevent this? Or do I have to reformat this value before inserting it into the $settings-array?

Thanks in advance and cheers, Christian

Din-din Bautista 10:02am Jun 6
use ""+$value

João Paulo 10:06am Jun 6

Din-din Bautista 10:07am Jun 6
yeah. dot. "".$value

João Paulo 10:08am Jun 6
hehehe. :)

Christian Ehrhart 10:15am Jun 6
Hm, that's what I thought. No other alternatives here? My code inserts/updates data via form-post-values automatically, so this is a little bit complicated to add. But it's possible :-)

Necat Bolpaça 10:29am Jun 6
strval( $value ) also doing this - http://php.net/strval

Christian Ehrhart 10:32am Jun 6
But is there a way to "force" Eden to insert/update values as strings when the DB-Field ist VARCHAR? Or something like that? This would be the most convenient way, or?

Alleo Pineda Indong 8:03am Jun 7
you prolly forgot to cast the value :) you can use "".$value or use type casting

Andre Jay Marcelo-Tanner 11:43am Oct 7

Joe Palala 7:33am Apr 11
Just wondering if there's a disadvantage to using __autoload()? Just noticed it's not around in EdenPHP, and it was solved by using the __callable magic method thingy.

Christian Blanquera 8:06am Apr 11
nope it's just a preference.

Gian Crescini Reyes Santillan 2:26pm Apr 11
its good to merge both tho

Is it possible to get the mobile number of users who liked FB apps/page? TIA..

Christian Blanquera 10:51am Oct 30

Sherwin Robles 11:00am Oct 30
I see.. I can't find it in the documentation.. I guess its not provided. Thanks!

Tee Plus 11:05am Oct 30
I think there is no way to get mobile number.

Sherwin Robles 11:08am Oct 30

Putera Kahfi 6:39am May 16
hi everyone, how to post a status into facebook via eden, I have use this way :

$graph = eden('facebook')->graph($this->session->userdata('fb_token'));
$post = $graph->post('Testing using eden facebook API, :D');

but I don't see anything. :(

Dan Michael Molina 8:28am May 16
you have to call create() like this
$graph->post('hello world')->create();

Putera Kahfi 9:31am May 16
I Got this message :

'error' =>
'message' => string '(#200) The user hasn't authorized the application to perform this action' (length=72)
'type' => string 'OAuthException' (length=14)
'code' => int 200

do you know what the problem ?

Dan Michael Molina 1:37am May 17
you need to authenticate first.

Christian Blanquera 4:32am May 17
you should specify it in the scope when generating your login URL ie: echo $auth->getLoginUrl(array('email', 'user_website')); for a list of scopes check out: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/authentication/permissions/
