Getting Started


Block Parsing

Block parsers should extend from AbstractBlockParser and implement the following method:


When parsing a new line, the DocParser iterates through all registered block parsers and calls their parse() method. Each parser must determine whether it can handle the given line; if so, it should parse the given block and return true.


Return value

parse() should return false if it’s unable to handle the current line for any reason. (The Cursor state should be restored before returning false if modified). Other parsers will then have a chance to try parsing the line. If all registered parsers return false, the line will be parsed as text.

Returning true tells the engine that you’ve successfully parsed the block at the given position. It is your responsibility to:

  1. Advance the cursor to the end of syntax indicating the block start
  2. Add the parsed block via $context->addBlock()
