  • Enforcing module boundaries in a large php app
    2 projects | | 17 Jan 2023
    So far I've found some tools which I could piece together to accomplish enforcing module boundaries, probably run as part of an automated github action. - Uses YAML to define any boundary, you can also use @internal to hide implementation classes. Seems like a good way to achieve what I want.

    >I wonder: Is automatic DI even helpful? You save some lines of boilerplate but sacrifice control over the initialization-order and get a flat, messy, implicit dependency graph

    Initialization order doesn't matter if your services are stateless. At least in our codebase, all of them are stateless, as it greatly simplifies reasoning about concurrent code (both in-process and between servers). Yes, it's easy to end up with a very a convoluted dependency graph under the hood, but I don't think it's a problem you really should care about. I mean, your code most likely already compiles to a very convoluted mess of machine code under the hood (with all the optimizations, ABI quirks etc.) and I doubt it matters to you much, as long as it does its job well and doesn't hinder your productivity.

    If you are talking about messy dependency graphs from the architectural standpoint (someone can easily add a dependency in the constructor without thinking about the consequences), we use deptrac for our PHP monolith which can validate your architecture is clean at build time [0]

    However, for our microservices written in Go, we decided to use manual DI to stimulate developers to prefer simpler design, otherwise our microservices could quickly turn to monoliths again.

    Just now watching the Laracon on youtube, and they mentioned in the "Modularising the Monolith" presentation, which helps setting boundaries / specific dependency usage within your codebase.

  • NoColor — validate the architecture of your PHP project
    4 projects | | 28 Jun 2021
    NoColor is somewhat similar to Deptrac. NoColor and Deptrac have similar goals: they both search for bad architectural patterns. But NoColor uses an absolutely different scenario: function coloring. Unlike Deptrac, NoColor analyzes call chains of any depth and supports type inferring. You can read more about the differences in the article Comparison with Deptrac.
