Asking OJS to tell me all possible hooks?

Postby rmichael » Mon Aug 04, 2008 2:28 am

Is is possible to query OJS for all known hook names, including the dynamic hooks (for example, those created for children by parents as in DAO class)?
I could do this statically, by parsing the source with a system command, but it would be hard to catch the above dynamic hooks. For example, HookRegistry::getAllKnownHooks(), similar to HookRegistry::getHooks() (which should maybe then be "getRegisteredHooks()").

I would like my plugin to present a drop-down list of hooks to the user.

Hi Richard,

There's no way to do this at the moment -- what you might consider doing is logging all hooks called (e.g. by modifying the HookRegistry::call function) for a while, using OJS representatively, and building a list that way.
