Project:
Google Storage Plugin for CakePHP
July 14, 2011 @ 11:03:21

Jonathan Bradley has submitted a handy new helper for the CakePHP users out there that can help to work with Google's Storage in a drop-in plugin - the Simple Google Storage Plugin for CakePHP.

Ever noticed how there is no decent support for CakePHP to utilize Google Storage? Well the wait is over, after realizing that Amazon S3 was just way to unreliable and bloated with spammers and usuage hogs. You can now add Google Storage support to your CakePHP application.

Obviously you'll need to be set up with Google Storage before using it, but the tool makes it as simple as calling publish() to push the data out, return all of the bucket information for your account and pull out information about individual objects. There's also a method that lets you make new buckets on the fly to make categorization simpler.

The heart of the code lies in the Storage class, so if you want to see how it's done, check that first. Other frameworks have their own interfaces with the Google services too, like the Zend Framework's Zend_GData component.
