TAG | Symfony2
A few months ago we launched this app already but it got wiped again. Now after some refactoring and redesigning on our side and after some changes on the Facebook side (event creation no longer spawns a status update!) the app is live again still powered by Symfony2.
Selecting something that has been created (or updated or deleted or …) between two dates is something very common I guess. So why should this be any different when you use MongoDB instead of a relational database.
And with Doctrine ODM it’s actually quite easy.
Just spent about an hour yesterday to figure out how to use unique indexes in a MongoDB document. It involves three simple steps.
Last week I made my first steps with CoffeeScript. Soon after I could see that I reduced the amount of code by about 30 percent and got it a little more readable.
But am I no longer able to separate my code into multiple files now?
So yesterday I migrated the CSS of a small Symfony2 project to Sass/compass. Getting used to it takes a while but is generally an easy and worthwhile experience.
The results are awesome!
After quite a long time I am working on a small rich frontend project. One thing that almost always start clean and gets messy soon are stylesheets.
I am not entirely sure but I think I remember Fabien mentioning the idea of Symfony2 as a complete rewrite (with the idea of major parts being backported to the 1.x branches at that time) on the symfony camp in 2008. Then it was soo far away.
In late 2009 I heard first ideas about the HTTP caching layer and on sflive2010 in Paris the Symfony2 project was finally announced and explained.
Today is the big day – today will be the first stable release of Symfony 2.0!
Essentially it is a static site generator just like Jekyll which is used on GitHub but written in PHP with some well known components.
If I keep an eye on the symfony mailing lists, watch the tweets of the community and read some of the many symfony related blogs I get the impression that already – even before Symfony2 is officially released – the majority of the community is shifted to Symfony2 abandoning symfony 1.4.
So what’s the status for symfony 1.4?
