Hello all,

can someone please advise me on the right way to add helper files in the modules? For example adding a MyModuleHelper.php with static helper functions in a module named MyModule. How would you do that? Thanks in advance, Sven

    Build a service for that and get it as a dependency where ever you use it. Calling something with static will make it hard to test and couple all using modules to exact these helper implementation.

    An example for a service would be the \Spryker\Service\UtilText\UtilTextService

    If your "helper" is only used inside the module it is part of create a class and inject it were needed into the constructor through the factory:

    <?php
    
    namespace Pyz\Zed\YourBundle\Business;
    
    interface HelperInterface {}
    
    class Helper implements HelperInterface {}
    
    class Using
    {
        public function __construct(HelperInterface $helper)
        {
            $this->helper = $helper;
        }
    
        public function doSomething()
        {
            $this->helper->doSomething();
        }
    }
    
    class YourBundleBusinessFactory
    {
        public function createUsing()
        {
            return new Using($this->createHelper());
        }
    
        public function createHelper()
        {
            return new Helper();
        }
    }

    If you use a service your factory just looks a little different as you need to get the dependencies from the dependency provider:
