ar-php extension is a wrapper extension to the great library Ar-PHP which is developed by Khaled Al-Sham'aa

Note: using the library directly as a vendor without using an extension is better but the problem is that we should modify a file in the library to make it work and i preferred not to touch the lib files. (maybe i will make a wiki to explain how)

Library Features


This extension developed using Yii version 1.1.14 RC but it is has been tested up to version 1.1.16.


1) download and extract the extension into extensions folder: protected/extensions/ar-php

2) download the library from here (tested on version 3.6.0 of this library).

3) extract the library into Your-Application-Folder/vendor , example:


4) configure component by updating config/main.php as follow:


		'libPath'=>'application.vendor.I18N' // optional since it is the default value


I tried to make the usage of the extension as easy as i can, in the official website there is an example of usage and it will not work for our extension but it will help us to compare between them, which is:

$obj = new I18N_Arabic('Numbers');

echo $obj->int2str(1975); // ألف و تسعمئة و خمس و سبعون

to generate the same example using ar-php extension use:

$obj = Yii::app()->I18N_Arabic->Numbers;

echo $obj->int2str(1975); // ألف و تسعمئة و خمس و سبعون 

or simply:

echo Yii::app()->I18N_Arabic->Numbers->int2str(1975); // ألف و تسعمئة و خمس و سبعون 

the same concept apply for all other features, and you can follow any feature link above for documentation and usage example.
