p. I got this interesting email today on the “Zend Framework mailing list”:http://framework.zend.com/wiki/display/ZFMLGEN/Home. I thought I’d share it with everybody since I know two or three DevZone readers aren’t yet subscribed to it. Natalie Kather sent this to the list overnight.
bq. I’m a co-worker of NorthClick GmbH, Hamburg, Germany, which is a young company that developed the very easy-to-use Click & Change CMS. We have implemented the Zend Search engine into our CMS and would like to share our experiences with the developers’ community. Therefore, I wrote an “article”:http://blog.northclick.de/archives/4 about our work in our “technical blog”:http://blog.northclick.de/ on it.
p. Ok, so I went out and visited their blog and read the article. Its a no-nonsense look at Zend_Search. They tell you what they are going to do and then show you how they did it. They point out some of the warts in Zend_Search as with this quote.
bq. At the moment, Zend_Search doesn’t support any other characters than those from the ASCII charset.
p. Then they give you a detailed listing of the code pieces they created and links to each of them so you can play along at home. If you are not familiar with Zend_Search, this may not be the best beginners article. You need to understand what it does and roughly how it does it. That having been said, if you’ve been looking for a real-world example of how to use Zend_Search, this is a good article to read.
p. p.s. I’m terribly sorry but we ran out of hot cider just before you got here.
