I just move my site (Cats Idol) from Drupal to CakePHP. It has definitely been a good move – in two weeks, working at night, I have gain a lot of control and flexibility I needed and did not have in Drupal.
CakePHP is an easy to use and agile development framework that provide an MVC, a great ORM, and other useful tools for rapid application development.
But more on that in a different post..
Another major feature I needed was integration with Facebook:
- I wanted to use Facebook Auth and provisioning rather than t write it myself
- I wanted users to be able to comment and Like content on the site
- I wanted to publish content on users wall when they add content to Cats Idol
I found a very useful plugin, developed by Nick Baker, which provides this functionality and more.
So check the plugin here.
And you can see a demonstration of it in action here.
And CakePHP app integrated into Facebook here.
Thanks Nick, Great Job!
