Php Dbc Library Allows creation, reading and exporting of DBC files

This library - written in PHP - allows creation, reading and exporting of World of Warcraft's client-side database files.


Examples can be found in the /examples/ directory. The actual library - and its bootstrapper - can be found in the /lib/ directory. Including /lib/bootstrap.php from your PHP files should suffice. Check out the stand-alone examples for more information.

A couple of exporters are currently included: database (optionally using PDO), XML and JSON. All these exporters currently output to the default stream (or a file if specified). In future versions direct SQL-insertion will be supported by the database exporter. Writing your own exporter is as simple as implementing the IDBCExporter interface.

It currently features an optional mapping mechanism, which allows you to easily define the fields and their types in an object-oriented manner. Alternatively, it allows you to both import/export these maps using a 'proprietary' INI-based approach. Setting up a map is an obligatory step for creating DBCs. One of the nicer features is automatically generating such a map from a given DBC. It attempts to analyze the given DBC by way of sampling and the results are fairly accurate.

Why in the world would I need this, you ask? Especially for web tools (such as an armory) it is vital to have updated client information. Granted, you only have to do this once ^.^

Feedback on the quality and usability of the library - and its examples - is highly appreciated, since this is effectively my first open-source project!

Thanks! I will be re-considering some of the implementations and try to merge the - currently read-only - DBC and the - currently write-only - DBCCreator. This would make things a lot easier.

Very nice! Useful, effective and well documented; this is how it's done ladies and gentlemen.
Please don't PM me asking to fix, correct or look-over your scripts. Please post a new thread in the Lua Scripting section so others can learn and help.

Just pushed the latest modifications, including read/write/creation support.

Additionally, the /examples/maps/ folder now contains the mappings for several popular DBCs including: Achievement.dbc, Faction.dbc and AreaTable.dbc.

Thanks for the kind words guys, muchly appreciated <3
