A self-contained application that automatically tracks cakephp developer’s open source code repositories, including applications and plugins
After constantly searching for CakePHP code, I realized a lot of it existed on Github. And, in fact, the core code is on GitHub. So it seemed natural to create a site to index all this code.
Since I was unemployed, bored, and miserable, 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 an unofficial project. I do not foresee it becoming official for various reasons, some of which are private. Therefore, I do not expect it to get the traffic it deserves, or the developer manpower it needs. So it’s a labor of love, on top of my already busy schedule. Please understand that when commenting on that.
- PHP 5.3+ .
- CakePHP 1.3.10+
- 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
You’ll want to run the migrations for both cakepackages and the plugins. I’ve also included a schema.php file, as well as a slightly out of date sql dump
- Set Default retry on CakeDjjob to be at least 1, so adding new packages/maintainers doesn’t fail randomly
- 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?
- More robust filtering
- May need to look into alternative searching systems, such as ElasticSearch or Sphinx
- Allow filtering by maintainer?
For now just appended Maintainer.username to like query
- Allow rating/commenting on packages
- 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 CodaSet/Google Code/SourceForge/BitBucket/OTHER_NAME_HERE
- Unit tests
- Increase visibility across the web through social integration
- Minify assets for new design
- Add shell tasks to cron where necessary
