Exchanged opinions with Peter van Westen and Nicholas K. Dionysopoulos on Twitter, and long story short; they consider SEF URLs to be something that neither people nor Google care about anymore. I thought I disagreed at first, but then I realized I should not have an opinion on this, I should have facts. So here is my research.
I just read a really helpful blogpost over at corephp.com about how you can reuse a model in Joomla Framework’s MVC structure. Thought I’d give an example of how this is solved in Nooku Framework, and then move on and look at how Nooku has taken MVC a few steps further.
Lurer du pÃ¥ hvor mange bokstaver det finnes av hver type i Wordfeud?
Har du noen gang lurt pÃ¥ hva motstanderen sitter igjen med pÃ¥ hÃ¥nden mot slutten av spillet?
Lurer du pÃ¥ om alle U-ene er brukt opp?
Fortvil ei! GjÃ¸r som proffene, skriv ut denne bokstavoversikten (passe analogt ja) og kryss av bokstaver etterhvert som de brukes, sÃ¥ slipper du Ã¥ lure.
Dette er fair play og helt vanlig i Scrabble-konkurranser og i Wordfeud League of Honour for de som deltar der.
Jeg har til og med gjort det praktisk og enkelt ved Ã¥ ha fire oversikter pÃ¥ samme A4-ark, slik at du sparer litt papir nÃ¥r du spiller 20 spill samtidig ;)
Here is a neat trick for how you can create and remember thousands of good, secure and UNIQUE passwords, using keys. No more identical passwords, and no more easily breakable ones either. Spend 5 minutes reading this blog post, you won’t regret it. Money back guarantee!
I write code, so I care mostly about what’s happening to the Joomla Framework. Or should I say not happening? The Joomla project needs more coders and less talkers, to put it bluntly, much like a boat won’t get anywhere with just captains and no rowers. More and more people in the Joomla community seems to realise this and are taking up responsibility and working outside the core code to make the improvements needed in various areas. Let’s take a lookâ€¦
MySQL Workbench is a great tool for developers to map out and visualise databases. What many people know is that it’s also a great way to make upgrading and writing upgrade scripts for your components really painless too.
Those of you following blogs and tweets in the Joomlasphere and reading about Nooku, might have read and learned about MVC and HMVC already. If not, here is a short explanation on MVC, and why you should care about design patterns and MVC in particular, especially if you’re a Joomla user. (more…)
Let me try to explain, in non-technical terms, what a framework is and why using the Nooku Framework is a good idea.
Back in 2006 I was a member of the standards and guidelines workgroup in Joomla, and during my involvement there I produced the Joomla 1.5 database schema as a DB Designer EER diagram, so people could view the database in a visual way. I recently also set up the Joomla 1.6 database schema, this time using MySQL Workbench which is a better tool for the job, and also GPL and available on multiple platforms. During my work with setting up the 1.6 schema, I came across lots of oddities and lacks of normalization, and a severe lack of naming conventions and guidelines became obvious.
As some might remember I made a visual representation of the Joomla 1.5 database schema back in 2006. I have now set up an EER representation of the Joomla 1.6 database schema too, that you can download for free. This schema was made after the 1.6 beta 2 release, and it was built using MySQL Workbench, which is both GPL and available as a free download for multiple platforms.
