It's been an interesting weekend, and after a lot of template tweaking from Styleshout, I've managed to make Neutrino work with a slick new look. Here's a tip:
When you're creating an application with CakePHP, think in advance about templates and themes, it will make your life easier.
So here's what's new:
- new default look
- major code cleanup. (As I'm getting familiar with Cake, I'm starting to realize how much some bits of my code stink. But, I was expecting that anyway, it's always like that when you learn new tricks.)
- article comments are now paginated in AJAX (finally!)
- most of the input is validated a lot better than before (praise for the new 1.2 validation)
- bakery-like "save and continue editing" feature for articles and article categories
- Google sitemap
I was also trying to make the models a bit fatter and controllers a bit thinner. Not quite there yet, but I'm working on it.
