Matthew Setter has posted a new tutorial about using the ZFTool functionality of Zend Framework v2 for managing your project's settings and configuration.
Welcome to another tutorial. Today, I will be giving you a walk through of zftool, which provides basic tooling support in Zend Framework 2. If you’re new to Zend Framework, or have been reading the introductory series here, it can come in quite handy. But unlike other frameworks, such as Yii (through yiic) and Symfony (via the Command Line tool), the tooling support in Zend Framework 2 is rather light on. These respective tools provide rather robust support for automatically generating models from database connections, checking logs and a host of other much required functionality.
He shows you how to do a few things with the ZFTool - create a new project, make some modules inside it, build an autoloader classmap and check the installation with some basic diagnostics. Command examples and configuration samples are included in the post to help you along.
