Book Review - PHP 5 CMS Framework Development - 2nd edition (Packt)
July 13, 2011 @ 08:53:07

On PHPClasses.org there's a new post reviewing a book from Packt Publishing, "PHP 5 CMS Framework Development" (a second edition) by Martin Brampton.

In this review I focus on the changes between the editions of the book, which are brief and objective, since the core of the work remains the same and with the same quality. [...] In sum, I recommend reading this book to those looking forward to improve their skills in PHP, or intend to create new frameworks. To put it simply, a good book to read, and with new tricks to learn.

He (the reviewer, Alexandre Altair de Melo) briefly looks at these differences between the versions, with the largest being in Chapter 15 - the building of a sample application to apply all of the theory learned in the rest of the book. You can find more information about the book on Packt's website here.

Book Review PHP5 CMS Framework Development by Martin Brampton
December 11, 2008 @ 09:32:54

Mike Lively has a new review of a book from Packt Publshing (authored by Martin Brampton) - PHP5 CMS Framework Development.

Upon reading through the book I have found that it gives an excellent case study of Martin Brampton's approach to CMS design and implementation. [...] One might be concerned that the ideas in this book are slanted towards how Brampton decided to implement various aspects of Aliro. While it is true that much of the book uses code directly out of Aliro, I feel that he did take the time to make sure he explained the reasons for the design and development decisions he made.

The more he read through the book, the more Mike felt like it was a case study of the Aliro CMS rather than a true look at CMS building in PHP5. He (Mike) lays out some of the contents of the book including the look at common CMS functionality, code organization, extensions and internationalization.

Access Control (in a PHP5 CMS)
November 03, 2008 @ 09:36:22

In an excerpt from this book from Packt Publishing, Martin Brampton look sat access control for content management systems and considerations that need to be made to make it effective.

Now we have some ideas about database, we quickly run into another requirement. Many websites will want to control who has access to what. Once embarked on this route, it turns out there are many situations where access control is appropriate, and they can easily become very complex. In this chapter we look at the most highly regarded model'"role-based access control'"and find ways to implement it. The aim is to achieve a flexible and efficient implementation that can be exploited by increasingly sophisticated software.

He looks a the different kinds of access control (discretionary access control, mandatory access control) and topics surrounding them like:

  • Adding Hierarchy
  • Avoiding Unnecessary Restrictions
  • Special Roles
  • Implementation Efficiency
  • Real Difficulties

The tutorial finishes up with the start of a hierarchical access control system (including a few screenshots showing the tables and their relationships).

Review PHP5 CMS Framework Development
October 31, 2008 @ 09:33:29

On the Ibuildings blog today Marcello Duarte has a new review of the Packt Publishing book "PHP5 CMS Framework Development" (by Martin Brampton).

Martin left Mambo (before they announced to drop support for PHP4 last September) to write his own CMS and "evolve out of the Mambo history", by taking advantage of PHP5 OO enhancements. The result is Aliro: a CMS, a framework and an extension project with traits and genes of the Mambo family. Aliro code is used throughout the book to support and illustrate his presentation.

Topics of the different chapters include basic CMS system needs, organizing code, extensions and editing and presenting content.

Book Review PHP 5 CMS Framework Development
August 29, 2008 @ 12:09:59

On the PHPClasses.org website there's a new book review posted from Alexandre Altair de Melo about a new book from Packt Publishing - "PHP 5 CMS Framework Development" (by Martin Brampton).

Often developers have to think about several aspects of the architecture of a system for the Web, not necessarily restricted to requirements of the software. With this in mind the book "PHP 5 CMS - Framework Development" is very rewarding reading.

Alexandre talks about the author of the book, the wide range of topics discussed in it (some not just applying to CMSes) and a breakdown of the contents of each chapter.

It is great work from the book author and the publisher, as we now have another great title, not only about PHP, but also about designing an architecture for software not just for only for creating content management systems.
