Zend Developer Zone:
Managing CSS and JavaScript files within a Zend Framework App
February 09, 2010 @ 10:48:56

On the Zend Developer Zone there's a recent tutorial from Andy Baird looking at an interesting way to manage CSS and Javascript files in a Zend Framework application. His suggestion can help tame those larger sites where multiple CSS/Javascript files can be a hassle to maintain.

Full design control usually means large, thousand plus line CSS files that equal serious pain when it comes to maintenance or building upon. If you don't namespace your selectors carefully you'll end up paying for it down the road. And heaven forbid you apply a default HTML tag styling. So, ranting aside, how do you maintain flexibility and still keep tidy CSS and JavaScript?

He's created two helpers to, well, help with the problem. They take in the path of a CSS/Javascript file and add it to either the stylesheet list or the file list to load into the header. He also includes an example of it in action, adding multiple CSS and Javascript files to the header of a sample application and echoing them back out.
