Raphael Stolt has a new blog post looking at the installation of a relatively new component in the Zend Framework toolset - Zend_Tool - on an OS X machine.
Yesterday I decided to tiptoe into the development of custom Zend_Tool Providers as the introductional article series by Ralph Schindler motivated me to learn more about it and I already have some useful use cases on my mind. Therefor I prior had to install the Zend_Tool component and it's driving CLI scripts on my MacBook.
Its a three step processes to get things up and running:
- Fetching and installing the Zend_Tool component
- Putting the Zend_Tool CLI scripts to work
- Checking the installation
The tricks is to get everything installed in the right place and to add the links to directories where they're needed. Once its installed a simple "zf show version" command will let you know its all working correctly.
