Vanilla outdoors PHP class

DizCowDizCow New
edited September 2013 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
I was looking for a class that could authenticate me outside the Vanilla forums, since i could not find a class that could do this for me i wrote a new PHP class and would like to share it with the world.

Class info:
http://support.dizcow.com/discussion/3/vanilla-outdoors-class-use-vanilla-login-outside-vanilla/#Item_1

Download class:
http://code.google.com/p/dizcow/downloads/detail?name=vanilla_outdoors_1_0.rar

Hope this can help some of you to use the Vannilla loggin outside the forums.

Sample code:
require_once("./library/class.vanilla.outdoors.php");
    
    $vanilla = new vanilla_outdoors();
    
    if($vanilla->check_login()){
        
        echo '<pre>';
        
            print_r($vanilla->get_user_data()); // This will output an array with all the userdata like username, email etc etc.
            
        echo '</pre>';
    
    }else{
        
        echo 'You are not logged in, please loggin first.';
        
    }

    Thank You for this Lines, DizCow.. ;)
    FYI: because i had a little struggle with that:
    If you have the Problem like me, that although youre logged out it still shows as you where logged in (shows your Data), then set your Cookie domain in Config.php!!

    $Configuration['Garden']['Cookie']['Domain'] = '.YourDomain.com';

    that solves th issue.. ;)

    This is a crude method that force load vanillas and clears the output buffer, so most likely you are not meeting the requirement of 2.1

    I a strong believer if you use code like this you must understand what it is actually doing.

    grep is your friend.

    Hmm... so is there a "right" (AND EASY) Way to do it? What i momentarily need is the Loged in User ID and the discussionID... certainly more in the future, if i extend my "Event plugin" into a "Calender & Event plugin"... ;)

    The Outdoors plugin is functioning with 2.1B2, where i get the UserID... the Topic ID i have to steel over the URL.... ;)

  • The UserID and DiscussionID of what? What is the context?

    You could use and API.

    @Dr_Sommer http://forum.example.com/profile.json will contain the data for the currently logged in user in Vanilla.

    I'll bring snacks. Who's getting the beers?

  • note: there is no such thing as "logged in" in a stateless system, you won't be logged in unless you have a session cookie. The basic api, you would connect by the client, or you can forward the session on.

    grep is your friend.

    @Hgtonight: "http://forum.example.com/profile.json" not working... just spits out an error...
    Do i need to download the Vanilla API for that? I tried that, still the same Error (link not found)

    You do not have pretty urls enabled, so you need http://caba.de/CaBaFoRuM/index.php?p=/profile.json

    Ahh... this is making me crazy...
    I am making a REAL Chat for Vanilla with Node.js... of course as always with minimum knowledge... ;))

    Cause PHP will not quite work with Node,js (or JS is better in this context) i need to use the profile.json File with Javascript..

    How can I put the "http://caba.de/CaBaFoRuM/index.php?p=/profile.json" into an Javascript Variable, so that I can read out the Name of the logged in User??

    i tried:

    var json = (function () { var json = null; $.ajax({ 'async': false, 'global': false, 'url': "http://caba.de/CaBaFoRuM/index.php?p=/profile.json", 'dataType': "json", 'success': function (data) { json = data; } }); return json; })();

    and:

    $.getJSON("http://caba.de/CaBaFoRuM/index.php?p=/profile.json", function(data) { alert(data.msg); });

    But nothing is working.... any Ideas? ThanX in advance... ;)
