The PHP guys are cooking with gas, as another framework comes out: Symfony. After checking it out, it looks like a quality framework, rather than a quick wrapper on top of Ajax.
Based on the best practices of web development, thoroughly tried on several active websites, symfony aims to speed up the creation and maintenance of web applications, and to replace the repetitive coding tasks by
power, control and pleasure.
- simple templating and helpers
- cache management
- multiple environments support
- deployment management
- smart URLs
- multilingual and I18N support
- object model and MVC separation
- Ajax support
…where all elements work seamlessly together, then symfony is made for you.
Symfony is based on several great open-source projects.
No framework worth their sort can not have a tutorial movie these days, and symfony doesn’t dissapoint.
The movie walks us through building an Apple Store Cart Demo, with a drag and drop shopping cart.
Easy Ajax in symfony is a tutorial that shows you step-by-step how to create an Ajax-powered symfony application in minutes.
The steps are:
- Application setup
- The main page
- Focus on the cart
- Define the updating action
- Focus on usability
