Lets Bake in PHP using CakePHP

From last week I decided to learn CakePHP, which is a open source web application framework for producing web applications. It is written in PHP, modeled after the concepts of Ruby on Rails, and distributed under the MIT License.

I started with the official documentation. But I am not finding it very useful when you really get stuck somewhere. But CakePHP has active developer team and very active community.

Here’s a quick list of features you’ll enjoy when using CakePHP:

  • Integrated CRUD for database interaction
  • Application scaffolding
  • Code generation
  • MVC architecture
  • Request dispatcher with clean, custom URLs and routes
  • Built-in validation
  • Fast and flexible templating (PHP syntax, with helpers)
  • View Helpers for AJAX, JavaScript, HTML Forms and more
  • Email, Cookie, Security, Session, and Request Handling Components
  • Flexible ACL
  • Data Sanitization
  • Flexible Caching
  • Works from any web site directory, with little to no Apache configuration involved

Thats all what I get from the initial chapters of CakePHP.
