Rob Allen's Blog:
Where to set up your view?
Dec 10, 2007 @ 11:13:00

In a new post Rob Allen takes a look at working with the Zend Framework, specifically with his Views. He presents his method for doing layouts in anticipation of the Zend_Layout package.

With Zend_Layout on the horizon, I've been looking at how to use it and it will remove the need for my own front controller plugin which I call SiteTemplate. As a result, I need to find a new home for the view customisation stuff I do in SiteTemplate.

He presents two options - one is a front controller that abstracts off the setup of the view before the Layout component gets a hold of it and the other places the creation of the view into the bootstrap file as a helper. He wants your input as to which method might better (or if there's something else you can think of).
