Book Review - Learning FuelPHP for Effective PHP Development
December 06, 2013 @ 10:58:51

On the CodeBlog they've posted a review of a recent release from Packt Publishing about using the FuelPHP framework for beginners.

I've been playing around with FuelPHP for a while and despite the fact that I haven't used it in production, it has been on my watch list ever since I first saw it. When I saw the new book about FuelPHP by Ross Tweedie, I was eager to read it - here's my feedback about. If you just want to buy the book, you can get it at Amazon or directly from Packt Publishing.

The review looks at each chapter and provides an overview of its contents (seven of them). It also talks some about the target audience for the book - intermediate to advanced PHP developers wanting to learn more about the framework. To be clear, this is not an "introduction to PHP" book too. He points out some of the "bads" about the book including major concepts being explained too high-level and confusion about what exactly to do in certain steps of the process.

Should I read this book? It depends on your background - I wouldn't recommend it if you're a PHP programmer who hasn't worked with namespaces, databases before. [...] I'd definitely recommend to book if you worked with other frameworks like CodeIgniter, Yii, Zend .. before and now want to have a look at FuelPHP. You'll get a good impression about its possibilities!

Pro Developer:
FuelPHP history and future
December 18, 2012 @ 09:16:59

On the Pro Developer site today there's a new post looking at the past and future of FuelPHP a framework started by Dan Horigan and Phil Sturgeon (who have both since left the team).

FuelPHP was first framework which used namespaces and was production ready at the same time. Small footprint, flexibility, namespaces, modularity and other gears make this framework great for building web applications. [...] For FuelPHP team 2012 was year with ups and downs. Dan Horigan was not available for his team members few months and no one didn't know where he was. He show up on the twitter and then he was unreachable again. WanWizard (Harro Verton) and Jelmer Schreuder were most active at the building FuelPHP core and they done a great job.

He takes a look at the road ahead (FuelPHP v2) and the work that's already been done on it. He also notes that another of the core team members has left the FuelPHP development group a few days ago and that there were some things about the framework he no longer liked. The post suggests looking into something like Laravel (v4, not yet released) if you're shopping for a new framework. He does note that, while the future of FuelPHP may be rocky, it is a stable framework and is still a solid choice for a platform (especially if it's already in use).

Phil Sturgeon's Blog:
Laravel is Awesome
May 23, 2012 @ 11:03:07

Phil Sturgeon (a developer on the FuelPHP and CodeIgniter frameworks) has a new post to his blog today talking about the Laravel framework and how "it's awesome" .

You might not expect to hear that from a CodeIgniter and FuelPHP developer, but it's true. Taylor has done a brilliant job writing code that is clean, functional and has built a huge community of smart developers in less than a year of active development. People are flooding to Laravel from other frameworks and that's great for the PHP community. [...] Taylor has done a brilliant job of building up a framework that takes advantage of callbacks, IoC and event driven behaviour very well.

He talks about why he likes Laravel and the features it includes that appeal to him...and why he doesn't use it yet. He notes that it's a "snazzy new framework" that gives PHP developers tired of the usual framework methods something new to try out, noting that it can help to keep the "brain drain" of PHP developers away from the language just because they get bored.

NetTuts.com:
Easy Form Generation Using FuelPHP
March 14, 2012 @ 10:05:17

On the NetTuts.com site today there's a new tutorial from Sahan Lakshitha about creating forms in FuelPHP, the PHP 5.3-centric framework.

Thanks to FuelPHP's fieldset class, working with forms couldn't be easier. With a few lines of code, you can easily generate and validate a form. Today, we're going to learn how to do just that!

He starts with guiding you through a simple install of the FuelPHP framework and configuring it to connect to a MySQL database. He shows how to set up a model, specify its properties and creating a controller to handle the user interaction. Using the definitions in the model, FuelPHP can automatically generate a form, complete with default options and some validation on the field (things like "required", "valid_url" and "max_length"). There's also code included showing how to edit current posts and listing out the complete post list.

NetTuts.com:
Build an Admin Panel with the Fuel PHP Framework
December 13, 2011 @ 10:09:47

Phil Sturgeon (an expert in all things related to the Fuel PHP framework) has written up a tutorial for NetTuts.com about creating a basic admin panel for your application based on the framework. This is the second part of a series looking at Fuel, building on the topics from the first.

In the first part of this series, we took a look at the basics of the FuelPHP framework. In this second-part, we'll be stepping it up a gear and move onto some more advanced topics! We'll be creating an admin panel for our application, cover the common uses of the ORM and use the Authentication package to restrict access.

He walks you through setting up Oil (the command-line tool that comes bundled with Fuel) and using it to create a new application. There's a few steps of configuration to connect to a database and setting up a few access groups (like "Banned", "Guests" and "Administrators"). Oil is used again to create users in the database and to auto-generate a lot of the controller/view code you'll need for the admin tool. He then gets into the more technical parts - updating the current code to be able to do things like using the ORM to fetch database results and being able to add comments to posts.

Tom Schlick's Blog:
Wrench for FuelPHP
November 30, 2011 @ 12:40:57

Tom Schlick has a new post to his blog talking about a tool he's written for FuelPHP-based applications called Wrench. It's a command-line tool to make taking your site "offline" simpler.

If you have been following what I've been up to lately you would see that many of my recent projects are based on FuelPHP. Since Fuel is so awesome and allows you to create "packages" that can be dropped into your application, I have created a few that help me quickly piece together apps. The first package I'm "releasing" is called Wrench.

The tool works with the oil command-line tool already included in the framework to swap out the default action with a "Down for Maintenance" message. It will look at the current state of the app and switch it to the opposite when run, but you can also define "start" and "finish" manually if you'd like. You can find the source for the package on Tom's github account.

PHPBuilder.com:
Creating a Database-driven Fuel PHP Application
October 19, 2011 @ 11:03:12

On PHPBuilder.com today they have another tutorial that involves the Fuel PHP framework (previously mentioned here). This time, though, they dive in a bit deeper and look at how to create a database-driven application using the database/ORM tools the framework comes bundled with.

In a recent article I introduced the Fuel PHP framework, which shows great promise despite its status as a relative newcomer to the crowded PHP framework market. While hopefully this introductory tutorial helped to acquaint you with fundamental Fuel concepts, it barely scratched the surface in terms of its impressive capabilities, so I thought it would be worthwhile to pen a follow-up article which examines a feature fundamental to almost any web application no matter how small: database integration.

He shows you how to configure your database connection settings, create your first model and work with the "oil" command line application to scaffold out the CRUD of interacting with the model.

Warden A user database authorization package for FuelPHP
September 29, 2011 @ 12:19:41

Fuel framework users have another option when it comes to user authentication management in their applications. Ando has released Warden, a package that manages logins, password hashing and user ACLs.

Warden is a user database authorization package for the FuelPHP framework that aims to fast track development by handling the work load of uthenticating user's. Built for performance, it comes with a ready-to-use user model and database install script.

The package uses bcrypt for password hashing and also provides features for forgotten passwords, password resets and "remember me" functionality. Installation is as simple as adding it to your "always_load" package list and setting up a few configuration options. Sample code for its features is included. You can get the latest version directly from github.

NinjAuth The Social Integration Package PHP has been dying for
September 19, 2011 @ 08:59:31

New on his blog Phil Sturgeon has a post about the social integration package PHP has been dying for - NinjAuth. It has hooks for OAuth and OAuth2 connections and makes it simple to use them completely abstracted.

In the past I have never needed to implement oAuth into a PHP project. I have done it in Rails and boy it was easy thanks to OmniAuth. OmniAuth abstracts away so much of the grunt work that it takes about 5 minutes to add a new social network to your site, and 4 of those minutes are spent signing up for the API keys. What options do we have in the world of PHP? A bunch of screwy hacks or provider specific classes like TwitterOAuth. I don't want to hunt down 20 libraries with different methods, I want to get a key, bang it in and go to the pub. Well, now I can!

The fuel-oauth and fuel-oauth2 packages to drive its backend. He includes a code snippet showing how to configure the providers (complete with keys needed for auth) including Facebook, Flickr, GitHub, YouTube and - of course - Twitter. You can grab the latest version of this library from Phil's github account.
