Andrew Podner:
Lithium Building Views Using Layouts
February 13, 2013 @ 11:54:04

Andrew Podner has written up a new post for his site today about building views/layouts in Lithium and make the maintenance of your application simpler in the long run.

The last time I wrote about the Lithium framework, the focus was on getting information out of a MySQL database. Once you have that information, in many cases you will want to show it to the user. In this installment, we are going to look at how Lithium implements layouts for your output in an effort to improve reusability of code, which ultimately improves the developer's ability to quickly get applications up and running and it makes maintenance down the road that much easier.

He talks about the basic structure of an application (on the file system) and where the layouts and views live inside it. He includes a sample layout that defines areas for things like title, scripts, character set and main content. Code is also included showing how to use it in your application. There's also a bit about setting up a default layout in your "_init" method if you'd like to use it across the entire application.
