Building a blog with CakePHP - Part 1: Getting started

For those people that are following me already on Twitter will know that I'm working with the amazing CakePHP framework on my webdevelopment / webdesign job.

CakePHP is a rapid development framework for PHP that provides an extensible architecture for developing, maintaining, and deploying applications. Using commonly known design patterns like MVC and ORM within the convention over configuration paradigm, CakePHP reduces development costs and helps developers write less code.

This tutorial will give you a good start in the world of CakePHP, just to learn the basics of the framework. The official CakePHP Blog tutorial (For Cake 1.1) gives you a good idea, but this tutorial will take it a couple of steps further (and in the next parts way beyond the official tutorial). Don't worry: This article will perfectly guide to making your first steps on baking some code.

Building a blog with CakePHP

Download the source code I created directly if you don't want to write anything yourself, but still want to learn. I do recommend you to read the full article to understand the whole code. Take note that this tutorial is written for Cake version 1.2 (Using 1.2.0.7692 RC3 to be precise).

There we go! Strap on your cooks hat; We're going to bake some delicious Blog-cake.

Unique website for your Digg updates

A couple of days ago, I presented the Unique website for your Twitter updates Reloaded. The script was based on another one TutorialBlog released earlier.

Now I'm using the same idea but converting it for another site. Today, you'll be able to show a Unique website for your Digg updates.

Digg Page

I'm not going into the PHP details this time (only some explanation on the configuration), but you can download the page from the download section.

Demo Digg Website   Download Digg Website

Almost everything is loaded from Digg using the Digg API. If you (or your friends) Dugg something, the page will be updated automatically. Oh, and while you're at it: Why don't you add me on Digg? The demo page will show your avatar immediately. If you like the script, don't forget to Digg it!

Unique website for your Twitter updates Reloaded

Recently, I started "Tweeting" on Twitter. I was really skeptical first, but now that I'm getting the hang of it, I really start to like it.

I saw an article on Tutorialblog on how to create a unique website for Twitter updates. Actually a really good post, but when I looked at the Twitter API, I thought there were much more possibilities. That's when I started diggin' in the code and created an extended version of the Twitter website. Your own profile information is added, tweets from friends and a couple of random followers. Just check out the demonstration.

Twitter Page

I'm not going into the PHP details this time (only some explanation on the configuration - Comments are added if you really need to know), but you can download the page from the download section.

Demo Twitter Website   Download Twitter Website

Remember: Almost everything on that page is dynamically loaded from Twitter. When updates are made (by you or your friends), the page automatically changes too (after reload). Oh, and while you're at it: Follow me on Twitter for more updates!

Place your feedcount in a random sentence

CSS-Tricks is a great website from Chris Coyier (I've mentioned it before) that I'm sure you've heard of. Next to the high quality of articles, the design of the blog is simple, yet really good. One of the things I really like about the design, is the way Chris shows his feedcount in a sentence, that will change every time you refresh your browser.

I was wondering how he created this funny RSS show-off and wanted to recreate the technique. Using Feedburner, PHP and some CSS, I managed to achieve the goal.

Place your feedcount in a random sentence

You can download the source code in the download section and you can view what we're going to make in the demo section.

Use this technique to pimp your website, making it a bit more funny and attractive for your visitors.

Expanding a HTML form using JavaScript

Using forms in a website to let the user register is pretty common these days. But what happens when you want several input values of the same subject? It's pretty ugly to make 20 fields with "I can speak the following languages:". Those users that can only speak one or two languages would leave a big empty space and would have to scroll down a lot. Those users that can speak more than 20 languages can't input everything they want.

In this example, what you want is that the user can give an input and dynamically expand the form. This can be achieved with the help of JavaScript and here I'll show you how.

Expanding Forms

This isn't going to be a long article, since I don't have much to tell about this technique. Just check out the demo, look at the code and learn for yourself. I added comments to make it a bit more easier.

Show your feedcount the way you want

Feedburner is a great tool / website to manage and control your RSS feed. I've already written an article before on how you can promote your feed to the max using a signature. Today, I'm going to show you how you can show-off the number of feed readers subscribed to your feed in your own, beautiful way.

Show your feedcount the way you want

Many bloggers use the FeedCount from Feedburner to show how many readers are subscribed to their blog. I'm pretty sure you'll have seen the following image around the net (several times):

Although you can change the color and animation style, I can't really say the chicklet is very pretty. Here's the way to show your feedcount the way you want to.

To use this technique, you'll need an account at Feedburner and a webhost that supports PHP and GD.
