In his latest blog entry today, Alan Knowles talks about the HTML_FlexyFramework, DataObjects and HTML_Template_Flexy libraries with a crash course on how to get started with them.
Since most of the applications I write, and get teams to write for me, use the FlexyFramework, I though some simple instructions might be usefull.
FlexyFramework, is an extremely simple pair of classes that help load action classes, do internal redirection, and load up basic configuration settings. Basically taking all the hard work out of setting up a reasonably secure web application.
His sample project, FlexyCash, will help serve as a framework for the tutorial. You'll have to have somewhat of a familiarity with the installation and setup of the libraries, but after that, all of the code/explainations/instruction is provided. In the end, the script connects to a database and grabs a list of accounts and displays them as an unordered list.
