The Horizons of CakePHP Development
September 30, 2010
CakePHP is an open-source web development framework for PHP. It came into prominence around 2006 and it was inspired by the Ruby on Rails framework, which was introduced around a year prior to it. CakePHP follows MVC pattern architecture. Like RoR, it also follows the two key design features, DRY or “Don’t Repeat Yourself” and CoC or “Convention over Configuration”.
CakePHP development is a rapid development framework with thoughtful, coherent design and is well aided by friendly community contributions. It relies on a ORM (Object-Relation Model) regarding database query interface. Using CakePHP’s ORM, we can create, retrieve, update and delete related data into and from different database tables with simplicity and in a better way. There is no need to write complex SQL queries anymore.
Some of the key features of CakePHP are:
- Flexible Licensing
- Compatibility with PHP4 and PHP5
- Integrated CRUD for database interaction and simplified queries
- Application Scaffolding
- Request dispatcher with good looking, custom URLs
- Built-in Validation
- Fast and flexible templating (PHP syntax, with helpers)
- Security, Session, and Request Handling Components
- Flexible access control lists
- Data Sanitization
- Flexible View Caching
