The ZF2 Module Creator makes use of code templates to generate the directory structure and initial module configuration files that are required for a Zend Framework 2 module. The configuration files can be found under src/resources in the Bitbucket source code repository.

Plugin Usage

  • Specify the locations of the templates through Tools > Options > PHP > NdZF2:
    Template directory should contain the files found in src/resources/CodeTemplates
    Module Definition File should be the location of the file src/resources/ModuleDefinition/NdZf2ModuleDefinition.stg
  • Setup a new ZF2 skeleton project as described in Getting started: A skeleton application
  • Right-click the /module folder and select New ZF2 Module...
  • Type in the name of the module and click Finish.
