Aura Framework Blog:
A Peek At Aura v2 -- Aura.Router
November 19, 2013 @ 12:12:05

On the Aura Framework blog, they continue their look ahead at the coming version of another of the framework's components, the Aura v2 Router. The Aura framework is a decoupled, modular framework that focuses on minimizing dependencies.

Lately, we've been going over the migration of v2 packages from v1. Today, I'll talk about the updated Aura.Router v2 package. While not an example of extracting a new package from an existing one, it has a couple of features that other routers don't currently have, in addition to being truly independent and completely decoupled from any other package.

They focus on some of the basics (more detailed information can be found on the package page) of the package's new features and its focus on routing rather than dispatching. Sample code is included showing it in use. The examples show basic routing, routing by server values and attaching route groups. There's also a brief section about adding REST routes via an "attachResource" method call.

Aura Framework Blog:
A Peek At Aura v2 -- Aura.Web
November 12, 2013 @ 10:34:58

Continuing their series of "sneak peeks" at the coming functionality and features of the next generation of components from the Aura framework, their blog looks at the version 2 of Aura.Web. This component has been refactored because of the creation of the Aura.Dispatcher as well.

Aura.Web v1 took the parts of Solar related to web controllers and combined them into a single independent package. [...] In the Aura.Web case, it turns out extracting Aura.Dispatcher was the key to reducing the Aura.Web package contents. With Aura.Dispatcher, any object can be a controller, since it can dispatch to any method on any object (as well as dispatching to closures). In turn, there is no more need for the Aura.Web package to provide a base controller with interfaces for various implementations.

The rest of the post explains the two halves of the new Aura.Web version - the Request and Response - and what kinds of things are included in each. It also links each to the parts of the READMEs that deal with them, providing a bit more information.

Aura Framework Blog:
A Peek At Aura v2 -- Aura.Dispatcher
November 05, 2013 @ 11:30:32

On the Aura framework blog there's a new post with a sneak peek at Aura.Dispatcher to handle the mapping between names and objects to handle the given request. The Aura framework provides high-quality, well-tested, standards-compliant, decoupled libraries that can be used in any codebase. This means you can use as much or as little of the project as you like.

In the lessons learned post, I talked about how Aura was born of the idea that we could extract independent decoupled packages from Solar, and how in doing so, we discovered that some of those extracted packages themsleves could be further split into independent pieces. Previously, I wrote about Aura.Sql-v2, Aura.Sql_Query, and Aura.Sql_Schema as extractions from a single Aura.Sql package. Today, I'm going to talk about Aura.Dispatcher as a combined extraction from three separate packages.

He starts off with a look at dispatchers in general, noting that they're usually used with request routing but the concept isn't limited to just that. He points out that CLI dispatching, as it turns out, is a lot like web request handling. The component makes routing both sides equally simple and could also be used as something like a micro-framework router. The post finishes up with this concept, talking about the evolution from micro- to full-stack framework structures and how the component could help.

Symfony Blog:
Nashville Flood Relief Website Built with Symfony
May 17, 2010 @ 14:22:51

On the Symfony blog today there's a new post spotlighting a site, written in Symfony, that was created to help those affected by the flooding in Nashville, Tennessee.

Though the city of Nashville was physically damaged [from the flooding], the spirit of the people was not. The local technology community quickly sprung into action to produce DonateNashville.org, a fully featured symfony 1.4 application to help organize flood relief efforts throughout the city. The project manager, Chip Hayner, took the time to answer some questions about the experience.

The site was built in a matter of days and within twenty-four hours they already had over one thousand visitors and, by the time it was all said and done, the help of 35 other people and around ten different bits of technology to get it all done. And, of course, it's all been open sourced.

Ada Lovelace Day 2009
March 24, 2009 @ 07:50:00

Today is "Ada Lovelace Day" - a day set aside to be an international day of blogging dedicated to spotlighting those women in science and technology fields that you feel have gone above and beyond and should be recognized for it. Here's more from the official site:

Women's contributions often go unacknowledged, their innovations seldom mentioned, their faces rarely recognized. We want you to tell the world about these unsung heroines. [...] If women need female role models, let's come together to highlight the women in technology that we look up to. Let's create new role models and make sure that whenever the question "Who are the leading women in tech?" is asked, that we all have a list of candidates on the tips of our tongues.

Members of the PHP community have already started making their blog posts (and tweets) about the day - here's a list:

CodeIgniter Blog:
CodeIgniter Community Voice - Michael Wales
June 20, 2008 @ 10:32:50

The CodeIgniter blog has posted their latest "Community Voice" feature highlighting an article from Michael Wales:

This week, our Community Voice author is Michael Wales, a programmer, a father, an aspiring author, and an award winning Airman. For the past 3 years, he's been focusing the majority of his time on CodeIgniter. He is among the most consistent contributors to the community, has released numerous libraries and tutorials, and is one of the most highly sought after freelancers within the community.

Michael talks about some of his experiences in developing web applications - both CodeIgniter driven and not. He notes that the framework does allow him to look at things from "outside the box" a bit more since it takes the hard bits off his shoulders.

Jared White's Blog:
Willowgarden Highlight Template Modes
September 13, 2006 @ 07:27:09

In this new blog post, Jared White spotlights a feature of the Willowgarden application platform - the template modes.

Unlike many Web frameworks, Willowgarden doesn't provide a different template for every action. All actions are provided via a single template file for the entire page. This works because of the concept of template modes.

He includes a quick example of these templates, creating two files to show the difference - one with the normal templating methodology and the other showing the difference Willowgarden's templates make (more concise and more flexible).
