Book Description

CakePHP is an exciting tool focused on writing web applications in PHP in a simple and fast way that requires less code. You can rapidly build prototypes using code generation and scaffolding. It doesn't require any complicated XML or YAML files. You just need to set up your database and you're ready to bake!

Instant CakePHP Starter contains several tutorials that together build a powerful and engaging application, and in the process teaches you many features of CakePHP, both common and obscure. It is not simply a listing and explanation of features you could get from reading the online documentation. This book is an exploration of the experience of installing, building, and deploying a CakePHP application in a step by step way.

This book begins by installing CakePHP locally, and then deploying your application to production.

We move on by scaffolding our application using the wonderful command-line tool that is packaged with CakePHP, bake. With our code generated for us, we install a theme to instantly update the look of the app, iterating over it a few times to add URLs, an installable JavaScript component, and a JSON service.

We conclude with a discussion of the community. In short, Instant CakePHP Starter is a kick start to your experience with both CakePHP and its community.
