The main working file of the hack contains a class that is responsible for configuration parameters, loading modules and libraries, connecting templates, styles and scripts. The class can be extended with any additional functions.

Built-in class functions

Methods and fields of a class are accessed by calling:


Instead of hackname, the name of the class is indicated, instead of funcname - the corresponding function or field.


Array with hack config, use read only.

$core->hack->(name)->conf( $field, $val = null )

Returns or changes the configuration of the hack depending on the parameters:

  • When called without parameters, returns the entire configuration array.
  • When called with one parameter $field - returns the value of a specific field.
  • When called with $field and $val parameters, sets the $field field to $val.< /li>


Loads and returns the corresponding hack library. The library is loaded and initialized once. Usage example:

$core->hack->proxy->checker->run( 123 );

$core->hach->(name)->mod( $name, $func = false )

Loads the module named $name. If the function name $func is passed, immediately executes the specified function. Convenient for implementing routing.

$core->hack->(name)->tpl( $part, $name )

Loads the $part section template named $name from the templates folder. The .tpl extension is not specified.

$core->hack->(name)->css( $name )

Includes a CSS file named $name from the styles folder. The .css extension is not specified.

$core->hack->(name)->js( $name )

Includes a JS file named $name from the scripts folder. The .js extension is not specified.

Main file syntax

The file main.php is responsible for extending the main hack class. It should contain a class called hack_name, where name will be the name of the hack. The class must inherit from thehack. For example:

class hack_proxy extends thehack { … }

Do not override the built-in class constructor and destructor, they are responsible for the work of internal functions. Use init as a constructor, stop as a destructor. Both functions have no parameters. For example:

class hack_proxy extends thehack {

  public function init() {
    // Constructor functionality

  public function stop() {
    // Destructor functionality


If you don't plan to extend the hack's main class and use only built-in functions, you can remove the main.php file from the folder manually.
