Fav.or.it Launch (Built on the Zend Framework)
June 18, 2008 @ 08:47:36

Nick Halstead and crew have launched fav.or.it (yesterday), a social site that seeks to "bring blogging to the masses" and runs on top of the Zend Framework.

From their blog:

We have long talked about 'bringing blogging to the masses' and today we have released a new version of fav.or.it which we think moves a quite a few steps towards that goal. We hope that we have firstly simplified the interaction with blogosphere and in turn made it accessible to a whole new audience. And for the more tech aware users we hope we have a raft of features that will also appeal.

Some of the more important things the site can do include conversation tracking, identity management, simple and easy to use searching, integrated commenting and much more. Check out Nick's list for more great features or just make a login and check it out for yourself.

Nick Halstead's Blog:
Zend Framework and fav.or.it
October 01, 2007 @ 11:18:00

Nick Halstead takes a look in a new post about how his latest project, Fav.or.it, is using the Zend Framework for just about every part of it (and why he went with it).

As we come near to launching fav.or.it I thought I would share my thoughts on building the project completely on Zend Framework. When we started 7 months ago the framework was on version 0.7 and some may have thought that basing our fledgling startup on a single unknown framework was slightly foolhardy. I will first cover why I made this decision and then outline my thoughts on each of the core modules and how we use them.

Also included in the post are the list of modules that they use including: Zend_Acl, Zend_Auth, Zend_Db, Zend_Feed and the Zend_Filter + Zend_Filter_Input + Zend_Validate combo.
