Contribution guide

Contributions are always appreciated. Like most contribution guides there are links to how to fork a repository and information about Pull Requests. There are also some extra information you need to know about the async-aws/aws repository that might differ from other repositories.

  1. It is a mono repository
  2. Most code is generated

Read about them below.

There are many ways to contribute to a project then just writing code. All of them are equally important. Some super helpful things include (in no particular order):

Test the PR in a local project

Sometimes, it's helpful to test the PR in a real project. This can be achieved by using the provided link binary which detects AsyncAws dependencies used by the project and replaces them by a symlink to the AsyncAws source code.

cd my-test-project /path-to-async-aws/link "async-aws/core" has been linked to "/path-to-async-aws/src/./Core". "async-aws/sqs" has been linked to "/path-to-async-aws/src/Service/Sqs".

The filesystem tree should look like.

│   ├── composer.json
│   ├── src
│   └── vendor
│       ├── async-aws
│       │   ├── core -> path-to-async-aws/src/Core

│       └── composer
└── aws

This repo is special

Mono repository

It means that all PRs and issues goes to async-aws/aws and not to individual client's repositories. When a commit is merged to master, the Subtree Split service will push the changes to other repositories.

Using a mono repository will simplify maintenance.

Generated code

Most classes and functions in this repository are generated by the code generator. API clients, input classes, result classes etc are generated from the JSON provided by the official AWS PHP SDK. This will assure correctness and it will be easy to keep up to with API changes.

As a rule of thumb all code in src/Service is generated. That code cannot be manually changed. Only the test code can be manually changed.

To create a class run the generate command.

./generate # Or ./generate S3 CreateBucket

The ./manifest.json file contains information where the source is located and some metadata about the generated files and methods.

You may also regenerate an existing operation and result classes:

./generate S3 CreateBucket ./generate S3 --all

Or regenerate everything:

./generate --all
