PHPBuilder.com: Getting Started with the Fuel PHP Framework
On PHPBuilder.com today Jason Gilmore has a new tutorial showing you how to gets started with the FuelPHP framework, a relatively new framework-on-the-block that will feel familiar for users of CodeIgniter and Kohana.
As it happens, there are even frameworks available for those developers wishing to take advantage of the very latest PHP features such as closures and namespaces. Two such solutions are the aforementioned fat-free microframework and another relative newcomer called Fuel. Although only about 18 months old, the Fuel project has gathered a significant head of steam which powered it all the way through the recent official 1.0 release.
He talks about some of the key features of the framework including its command line tool, oil, and how nicely it plays with the ideas of a RESTful API. He walks you through the installation of the framework and how to create a sample project with oil. He also briefly touches on the default controller, view and templating structure.
