Initial beta release. (tested providers: gmail, yahoo, hotmail)
lcOpenInviterPlugin is a symfony plugin that allows users to grab their contacts from different e-mail providers (gmail, hotmail, yahoo ...) and social sites (facebook, twitter, hi5 ...) then send them e-mails and messages.
The total of available providers and social sites is more than 86
This plugin is developed by LetsCod.
If you're on windows OS, you should create an empty folder "tmp" for cookie storage. (for example, if you're using wamp, create the folder C:\tmp)
Get a username and private key (both required for the installation task) by signing up in www.openinviter.com.
It's quick and easy.
Install the plugin
$ symfony plugin:install --stability=beta lcOpenInviterPlugin
Publish the plugin assets (css and js):
$ symfony plugin:publish-assets
Clear you cache
$ symfony cc
Configure the plugin by running the plugin task:
$ symfony open-inviter:install --username=your-username --key=your-private-key
$ symfony open-inviter:install --username=elieandraos --key=ee7968edc9580e1578c6bd7ad54fad4a
this task sets the username and private key you entered and checks your sever configuration (php version, curl installation, DOM Element installation, cookie path ...) if everything is okay, a log file will be written.
make sure to enter the right username and key because it's not yet validated with openinviter servers
Enable the module and helper in your application
[yml] all: .settings: enabled_modules: [openInviter] standard_helpers: [openInviter]
Configure the e-mail text and providers in your application
[yml] all: lcOpenInviter: wish-list: providers: ["hotmail","gmail", "aol", "facebook", "flickr", "hi5","indiatimes", "operamail", "tagged", "yahoo"] message: subject: "is inviting you to join letscod developers" body: "Check our recruitment page" footer: "LetsCod"
If the wish list is not set, a default wish list of "Gmail, hotmail and yahoo" is provided
If the wishlist is set to
all, it will return all the available providers
[yml] all: lcOpenInviter: wish-list: providers: [all]
[php] <? echo link_to("invite", "openInviterHome");
As each service and provider updates their url of getting contacts for their own security reasons, a task has been created to do update the plugin's classes.
$ symfony open-inviter:auto-update
You can run this task manually to get the updates, but the best way would be to make a cronjob that runs this task twice a day
(every 12 hours) for the perfect balance between server load and autoupdate frequency.
If you do like the plugin, and think it helps the community, do not hesitate to click I use it , so it could be more trusted and spreaded fast.
