Starting a new experience blog for symfony plugins
Today I just started another blog labor.ical.ly. No I am not going to post regularly or at least not as frequent as on this blog. I just wanted another space to write down stuff that doesn’t really belong on test.ical.ly.
So what is he going on about I hear you ask?
As I described already I am supporting several web projects all over Europe and give symfony workshops and consultance. In that respect I only need to find out about appropriate symfony plugins that fit both to requirements of any of those web projectsand to the our requirements in terms of code quality, activity, usability and some more.
So whenever I learn about a new feature requirement I will look for symfony plugins that may already implement such a feature.
Now I have to check first if the formal requirements apply (symfony 1.4 and Doctrine 1.2).
Next step is to install and get it to work.
Once I have it working I am going to check whether the functionality is what is expected by the requirements.
And if that is the case I will have a look at the implementation to see if it easily integrates with new projects or if there are some ugly dependencies that would conflict with the project.
This will probably happen often but not on a regular basis and I don’t think it is interesting to read on this blog as the posts will be very simple and focused only on one plugin at a time.
The first feature I have to hunt down is a symfony forum plugin. Maybe you want to follow my way?
BTW: The image popped up in google when searching for “new blog”. Weird..
