An IDE is a software application that provides comprehensive facilities to computer programmers for software development. Some of the features of an IDE include, a source code editor, a compiler and/or an interpreter, a debugger and build automation tools. The current trend of Web development is to follow a framework in developing rapid web applications so that the developers life can be made easy in building consistent and more organized applications. The aim of the project is to build a Web-based IDE (Integrated Development Environment) that enables users to create a Web application in PHP on the CakePHP framework. The view component of the IDE allows the users to build the CakePHP view templates, which include the HTML tags which can be properly linked with the controller functions. Users will be able to create the HTML form elements only by performing certain drags, drops and clicks. This project will create dynamic view elements, which is achieved by connecting them to the Controllers components. This IDE helps the users to create dynamic web pages even without good knowledge of HTML and server side scripting languages.
The creator of this powerful and multi-faceted code management and deployment system shows you how to unleash its hidden power across your complete PHP development lifecycle. PEAR Installer is the preferred PEAR package for installing PEAR packages. It can be used to make sure that the most up to date version of a package is present on your server. This book reveals the full power of the PEAR Installer, presenting a new way of organizing your PHP application development and deployment. This book will show you a new way of organizing your PHP development, by leveraging the full power of the PEAR Installer. In a sense, the PEAR Installer is a step above a software design pattern, a meta-development pattern that can be used to systematically organize all of your PHP development. You will learn how to organize your code into packages using the package.xml format. You will learn about the revolutionary new PEAR Channel concept, and how to safely and reliably depend on external PHP libraries from sources such as pear.php.net and other PEAR channels. You will learn about the PEAR_PackageFileManager package, and how to customize individual installations of your PHP code through file roles, file tasks, and post-installation scripts. In addition, you will learn how to use the power of PEAR to manage your web projects with the PEAR installer to bring the power of versioning and rollbacks to your live website. The synergy of the PEAR Installer and a revision control system like CVS or Subversion is also explored in depth. Next, you will learn how to set up your own PEAR Channel for distributing PHP applications, both open-source and proprietary closed-source PHP applications that can be secured using technology already built into the PEAR Installer. Finally, you will learn how to embed the PEAR Installer inside your own web application in order to manage plug-ins from a remote server. The book covers in detail designing a custom plug-in system for a fictitious blog application. The plug-in system is used to manage templates, and the PEAR Installer is used to manage the details of querying the remote server for templates, handling dependencies between versioning, and doing the actual installation process as well. This book is a comprehensive and well structured tutorial on using PEAR Installer, but it is also much more than that. As the creator of the PEAR Installer Libraries, the author is passionate about the benefits of a well managed development and deployment process. The book shows how PEAR Installer works in detail, and then takes you through a comprehensive tour of how you can apply it all stages of the development lifecycle, with practical examples and advice throughout. It will build your technical skills and understanding, and also widen your perspective on managing an effective development process. The book is not just for PHP developers who want to understand how the PEAR Installer works, and what it can do for them, but more generally for PHP developers seeking a better way to deploy their applications and manage updates. It does assume that you have a good working knowledge of PHP development, and are dealing with projects of a sufficient scale and complexity to warrant an investment in a structure process.
Developing a new web application should not mean reinventing the wheel. Thats why a framework is an essential item in your development toolbox. It helps you respect coding standards; write bulletproof, maintainable code; and focus on business rules rather than waste time on repetitive tasks. This book introduces you to symfony, the leading framework for PHP developers, showing you how to wield its many features to develop web applications faster and more efficiently, even if you only know a bit of PHP. In The Definitive Guide to symfony, you will learn about the Model-View-Controller architecture and the crucial role it plays in making frameworks like symfony possible. The book also covers framework installation and configuration, and shows you how to build pages, deal with templates, manage requests and sessions, and communicate with databases and servers. You will see how symfony can make your life easier by effectively managing form data, enhancing the user experience with Ajax, internationalizing applications for a global audience, and using smart URLs. Authors François Zaninotto and Fabien Potencier put a strong emphasis on the tools that symfony provides for professional environments, showing you how to take advantage of unit tests, scaffolding, plug-ins, the command line, and extensible configuration. And since frameworks often raise performance-related debate, this book will give you many tips and techniques for monitoring and improving your applications performance, from caching to expert configuration tweaks. Always keen to offer practical instruction, the authors include lots of code examples, expert tips, best practices, and illustrations throughout this book, with the goal of providing a resource that satisfies the educational needs of symfony's rapidly growing user community.
