The original legacy version:



  • Included many good things from Jobeet documentation from Practical Symfony Book. I also skipped many other good parts. Log of this work in step-by-step.txt.
  • Simple routing class for master-detail table relationship.
  • Base component to render table sheet report with header, footer and grouping feature.
  • Different layouts: layout, error404, ajax, and modal.
  • Mootools integration:
    • ajax request, now we have mootools-symfony-ajax combination (but not integration).
    • form field validation
    • theme effects
    • sfWidgetFormDatePicker
    • dynamic drop down list using ajax (master-detail)
    • Using a special iframe lightbox for value lookup. This input also utilize a lookup modal widget.
  • Oriclone Theme: My personal theme, the original clone. Although I've made it from scratch, it is inspired by other design.
    • CSS compressor task class
    • Custom 404 error page.
    • Controll parameter via app.yml
    • A few source images (XCF's GIMP), only small files.
