Solar System
Aug 26, 2008 @ 07:54:33

Paul Jones points out a new system for the Solar framework that will help those new to using it get started - a sample application that you can grab from Subversion in the traditional "hello world" style.

In the spirit of some other framework projects, the Solar Framework for PHP 5 now offers a ready-to-use Solar system to get new users off to a quick start. It's not prepared as a tarball just yet, but it is available for checkout or export using Subversion from http://svn.solarphp.com/system/trunk.

The sample installation creates a front controller, an authentication system and a "bookmarks" application to give you an idea of how everything fits together. You can get more information on each of these parts and how they all work on the Solar manual/wiki.

Yahoo! Booksmarks uses symfony

On the symfony blog today, there's a new post talking about a newly discovered site using their framework - the Yahoo! Bookmarks website.

But the real news about the new Yahoo! Bookmarks is that it was built with symfony. Why did Yahoo! choose our framework? According to Michael Salisbury, Technical Yahoo!, who was kind enough to give us his feedback, [it was] the major strengths of symfony over its competitors.

The advantages mentioned were the great documentation, explicit and extensive configurability, it's active development, and the reuse of "best of breed" components rather than just remaking it all themselves. Check out the post for the full details and this screencast for more.
