Hook mechanism explained

Hook mechanism explained

Flatboard's Hook mechanism can be confusing when you first get started, so I'll try to explain it clearly.

The hook method in the Plugin class takes two parameters: $name is the name of the hook to be executed, $param is the parameter to be passed to the hook function. It iterates through all the enabled plugins, uses the isValidHook method to determine if there is a corresponding hook function, and if so, uses the myHook method to execute the function and adds the return value to the $out variable (so that multiple plugins can use the same hook), and finally returned the $out string.

Based on incomplete testing, the order of the Hook may be related to the name of the plugin.


function myPlugin_myDemoHook($param) {
return 'Hello ' . str_shuffle($param);

When myPlugin is enabled, it can be accessed in the main app via

$out .= Plugin::hook('myDemoHook', 'parameter');
echo Plugin::hook('myDemoHook', 'parameter');

to call myDemoHook in the myPlugin.

The output may resemble:

Hello trermeapa

Very well explain to new users for never used it before. I have done 4 years of web application development so good job explaining it 😊.
