I found this EE Bootstrap unit: https://github.com/blocka/ExpressionEngine-Bootstrap

It "bootstraps" the EE environment, so you use the EE "super object". However, I'm running into problems trying to use it with EE 2.5.2.

I have set my system_path as required. The script is trying to include Compat.php, which isn't in 2.5.2, so I comment out that line. The script is also trying to include Base5.php, which also is not in 2.5.2, so I comment out that line.

Now, when running, I get an exception: "Class 'Controller' not found" at this line

class A extends Controller {

Any ideas how to fix this for 2.5.2?

Here's the source code that I have:

<?php
if (!isset($system_path)) {
    $system_path = './na_cms/';
}

$assign_to_config['enable_query_strings'] = TRUE;
$assign_to_config['subclass_prefix'] = 'EE_';


if (realpath($system_path) !== FALSE)
{
    $system_path = realpath($system_path).'/';
}

// ensure there's a trailing slash
$system_path = rtrim($system_path, '/').'/';


define('SELF', pathinfo(__FILE__, PATHINFO_BASENAME));
define('EXT', '.php');
define('APPPATH', $system_path.'expressionengine/');
define('FCPATH', str_replace(SELF, '', __FILE__));
define('SYSDIR', trim(strrchr(trim(str_replace("\\", "/", $system_path), '/'), '/'), '/'));
if(!defined('UTF8_ENABLED')) define('UTF8_ENABLED', false);
if(!defined('CI_VERSION')) define('CI_VERSION', '2.0.1');
//define('AJAX_REQUEST',false);
define('DEBUG',false);

require(BASEPATH.'core/Common'.EXT);
// require(BASEPATH.'core/Compat'.EXT);
require(APPPATH.'config/constants'.EXT);

$CFG =& load_class('Config', 'core');
$URI =& load_class('URI', 'core');
$IN =& load_class('Input', 'core'); 
$OUT =& load_class('Output', 'core');
$LANG =& load_class('Lang', 'core');
// require(BASEPATH.'core/Base5'.EXT);

$loader = load_class('Loader', 'core');

// Load the base controller class
require BASEPATH.'core/Controller'.EXT;


class A extends Controller {

}

$EE = new A;
$EE->core->_initialize_core();

Actually, I found a fork that supports EE2.5.2: https://github.com/rsanchez/ExpressionEngine-Bootstrap I am leaving this question for reference and will accept my own answer when avail.

<?php
if (!isset($system_path)) {
    $system_path = './na_cms/';
}

$assign_to_config['enable_query_strings'] = TRUE;
$assign_to_config['subclass_prefix'] = 'EE_';


if (realpath($system_path) !== FALSE)
{
    $system_path = realpath($system_path).'/';
}

// ensure there's a trailing slash
$system_path = rtrim($system_path, '/').'/';


define('SELF', pathinfo(__FILE__, PATHINFO_BASENAME));
define('EXT', '.php');
if(!defined('BASEPATH')) define('BASEPATH', str_replace("\\", "/", $system_path.'codeigniter/system/'));
define('APPPATH', $system_path.'expressionengine/');
define('FCPATH', str_replace(SELF, '', __FILE__));
define('SYSDIR', trim(strrchr(trim(str_replace("\\", "/", $system_path), '/'), '/'), '/'));
if(!defined('UTF8_ENABLED')) define('UTF8_ENABLED', false);
if(!defined('CI_VERSION')) define('CI_VERSION', '2.0.1');
//define('AJAX_REQUEST',false);
define('DEBUG',false);

require BASEPATH.'core/Common'.EXT;
require APPPATH.'config/constants'.EXT;

$CFG =& load_class('Config', 'core');
$URI =& load_class('URI', 'core');
$IN =& load_class('Input', 'core'); 
$OUT =& load_class('Output', 'core');
$LANG =& load_class('Lang', 'core');
$SEC =& load_class('Security', 'core');

$loader = load_class('Loader', 'core');

// Load the base controller class
require BASEPATH.'core/Controller'.EXT;

function &get_instance()
{
    return CI_Controller::get_instance();
}

class EE_Bootstrap extends CI_Controller {}

$EE = new EE_Bootstrap;
