Upgrade Flow's Pimple dependency to 2.x
Closed, ResolvedPublic


If I require_once both the Flow and OOUIPlayground extensions, I get

Fatal error: Call to undefined method Flow\Container::share() in /home/spage/projects/core/extensions/Flow/container.php on line 21

I think this happens because Flow invokes Pimple 1.x's share() method, but OOUIPlayground loads a later version of pimple that "wins". See Undefined Function share() #135 issue. I wasn't able to fix by changing the order of the require_once.

Perhaps pimple should be promoted to core/vendor as an External library, T1283.

This is importing Pimple v2, while flow is still using Pimple v1.

Pimple v2 has different defaults, the explanation for share's removal is here:

It says, "the share method is kept as a no-op method". I guess they changed their mind on that later?

yea a later patch removed it, under the reasoning that it would make a silex v1 app look like it will work when it will actually have issues(because items not marked share will become share by default)

(note that pimple is from silex, both silex and pimple went v1 -> v2)

What do we do? Does Flow upgrade to Pimple 2.x or does OOUIPlayground downgrade to 1.x or is there something else we can do that's clever?

We're going to upgrade Flow to 2.x.
