CakePHP3.0

Post by bullmoose20 »

Hello,

What would be involved in getting zuluru to work with the latest version of CakePHP?
I am also looking into incorporating Bootstrap (Twitter) with CakePHP and using zuluru.... any suggestions?

CakePHP 3.0 has introduced quite a number of changes that break backward compatibility. These were done for good reasons, but it does make the conversion process complex. I have actually started this process, but had to put it on the back burner for a little bit while I planned and executed a move of my server over to Amazon Web Services. I have a few other odds and ends to take care of, but expect that I'll be getting back to this project next week and hopefully wrapping it up by mid-June.

If you want to look at incorporating Bootstrap, you might want to wait until after that is done, or you could start tinkering with it now. It seems that most of the CakePHP 3 changes are in the model and controller areas, not views, so it might be easy enough to copy whatever you do with the CakePHP 1.3 version of Zuluru and paste it into the 3.0 version. It would be important to use the noConflict mode, as Zuluru already uses jQuery (also in noConflict mode) and needs to be able to co-exist with whatever JS any third-party CMS that's also on the site might be using.

Hi Greg,

Thanks for the response. As for Bootstrap (Twitter), I will wait until you finish the upgrade to the latest version of Cake. There are other github development that already takes care of the Cake3.0 and Bootstrap (Twitter) integration quite elegantly.

Regards,
Nick
