A self-contained application that tracks CakePHP developer’s open source code repositories, including applications and plugins. Includes some social integration features
After constantly searching for CakePHP code, I realized a lot of it existed on Github. And, in fact, the core code is now on GitHub. So it seemed natural to create a site to index all this code.
Since I was unemployed/bored/miserable/drunk, I decided to focus all my energy on creating just such a thing. That was over a year ago (March 1st seems to be my first commit, although I know I was working on it before then…), and the codebase has been through at least two redesigns and countless code iterations. I’ve learned a thing or two in the process, and have even gotten a job as a result of it.
This is apparently now an official project. However, because there are other official projects, this is still mostly a one-man show, so feel free to contribute back to the codebase through code, design, and feedback.
- PHP 5.3+ .
- CakePHP 2.x
- GIT for version control
- God for running DJJob in the background on a server
- Download this: http://github.com/josegonzalez/cakepackages/zipball/master
- Unzip that download.
- Copy the resulting folder to a new directory containing the cake core
git clone git://github.com/josegonzalez/cakepackages.git cakepackages
If using git clone to download be sure to update the submodules after you clone with the command:
cd cakepackages && git submodule update --init
You’ll want to run the migrations for both cakepackages and the plugins. I’ve also included a schema.php file. SQL Dump with dummy data to come.
Set Default retry on CakeDjjob to be at least 1, so adding new packages/maintainers doesn’t fail randomly
- Increase visibility across the web through social integration
- Integrate with GitHub’s OAuth implementation for user accounts
- Push user accounts and a user dashboard
- Possible dashboard aggregating both code and community resources useful to that person?
- Integrate a risingcake.com like news dashboard
Fix RSS Sanitization such that characters that should be escaped are escaped properly
- Integrate a project’s readme
- More robust application/plugin distinction, as well as checking both standards and to see if something that should be a plugin is
- Full Plugin Installer API. Docs to come
Allow users to submit new packages for inclusion in the index
- Possible DDOS issue? (Should be handled at the server-level)
More robust filtering
May need to look into alternative searching systems, such as ElasticSearch or Sphinx(punting on this till later)
- Allow filtering by maintainer?
For now just appended Maintainer.username to like query
Allow rating/commenting on packages(liking/bookmarking are better than rating)
- Allow users to submit tags for a package
Fix issue where packages that should be disabled are passing that check Add support for organizations
- Add support for
- Unit tests
Minify assets for new design Add shell tasks to cron where necessary Update maintainer/package views
- Infinite pagination of packages
Remove csf theme submodule(re-added, made it more subtle)
Better deployment strategy for dealing with official CSF dependencieseasy-squeezy
