Decisions about CakePHP
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose CakePHP in their tech stack.
Hi all, I need to create a simple IoT interface application that connects the end device API with a GeoTab API. I am considering using Bubble due to its simple interface and configuration tools, but I fear it's too simple. We will want to add features and new devices as we grow - I was thinking of using CodeIgniter or CakePHP on a hosted site for the application. Must support JCOM encoding between the two APIs and there is no need for a separate interface as GeoTab already has one; we are just connecting and pushing data. Thoughts?
- Use code generation and scaffolding features to rapidly build prototypes
- No complicated XML or YAML files. Just setup your database and you're ready to bake
- Instead of having to plan where things go, CakePHP comes with a set of conventions to guide you in developing your application
- The things you need are built-in. Translations, database access, caching, validation, authentication, and much more are all built into one of the original PHP MVC frameworks
