Upgrading from PHP-Parser 0.9 to 1.0

PHP version requirements

PHP-Parser now requires PHP 5.3 or newer to run. It is however still possible to parse PHP 5.2 source code, while running on a newer version.

Move to namespaced names

The library has been moved to use namespaces with the PhpParser vendor prefix. However, the old names using underscores are still available as aliases, as such most code should continue running on the new version without further changes.

Old (still works, but discouraged):

```php $parser = new (new ); $prettyPrinter = new ; ```


```php $parser = new (new PhpParser); $prettyPrinter = new ; ```

Note that the PHPParser prefix was changed to PhpParser. While PHP class names are technically case-insensitive, the autoloader will not be able to load PHPParser\Parser or other case variants.

Due to conflicts with reserved keywords, some class names now end with an underscore, e.g. PHPParser_Node_Stmt_Class is now PhpParser\Node\Stmt\Class_. (But as usual, the old name is still available.)

Changes to Node::getType()

The Node::getType() method continues to return names using underscores instead of namespace separators and also does not contain the trailing underscore that may be present in the class name. As such its output will not change in many cases.

However, some node classes have been moved to a different namespace or renamed, which will result in a different Node::getType() output:

``` Expr_AssignBitwiseAnd => Expr_AssignOp_BitwiseAnd Expr_AssignBitwiseOr => Expr_AssignOp_BitwiseOr Expr_AssignBitwiseXor => Expr_AssignOp_BitwiseXor Expr_AssignConcat => Expr_AssignOp_Concat Expr_AssignDiv => Expr_AssignOp_Div Expr_AssignMinus => Expr_AssignOp_Minus Expr_AssignMod => Expr_AssignOp_Mod Expr_AssignMul => Expr_AssignOp_Mul Expr_AssignPlus => Expr_AssignOp_Plus Expr_AssignShiftLeft => Expr_AssignOp_ShiftLeft Expr_AssignShiftRight => Expr_AssignOp_ShiftRight

These changes may affect custom pretty printers and code comparing the return value of Node::getType() to specific strings.


  • The classes Template and TemplateLoader have been removed. You should use some other code generation project built on top of PHP-Parser instead.
  • The PrettyPrinterAbstract::pStmts() method now emits a leading newline if the statement list is not empty. Custom pretty printers should remove the explicit newline before pStmts() calls.


    ```php public function pStmt_Trait(PHPParser_Node_Stmt_Trait $node) { return 'trait ' . $node->name . "\n" . '{' . "\n" . $this->pStmts($node->stmts) . "\n" . '}'; } ```


    ```php public function pStmt_Trait(Stmt $node) { return 'trait ' . $node->name . "\n" . '{' . $this->pStmts($node->stmts) . "\n" . '}'; } ```
