Symfony 2.1.0 released

Zend Framework 2.0 was announced earlier today, and now the Symfony team announce the release of Symfony 2.1.

Symfony 2.0 has been in use on large websites for over 2 years now, and was a major framework release in the PHP community. It was one of the first frameworks to truly take advantage of the language features available in PHP 5.3, and it has had a huge impact in shaping the next generation of PHP frameworks such as the newly announced Zend Framework 2.0. The Symfony standalone Components have also been used to replace large chunks of code in popular PHP projects such as Drupal8 and PhpBB4.

The release of Symfony 2.1 is great news, particularly with regards to the Form Component which I have been experimenting with recently. I personally have jumped ship from using the Zend Framework (ZF), to using the Symfony 2.0+ stack on newer projects. I have started implementing the Symfony Components within older ZF 1.0 web apps. And on smaller projects I will be experimenting with Silex, the Symfony-based "micro-framework".

With the community slowly adopting PHP 5.4 this is the time to ensure you are keeping pace with the newer frameworks and that you have moved into the post-5.3 era.

IFTTT / Put the internet to work for you. | Mobile & Web Development News | Scoop.it

Harness the power of IFTTT - If This Then That. This tool combines 50 different "channels" together and allows you to create rules to make them work together.


For example - if I am tagged in a photo in Facebook, then save that photo to Dropbox. Or if the weather status changes to Rain then send me an SMS. Or if I get a new follower on Twitter then say thanks!


The options are endless, as can be seen by a quick glance down the lair of community shared recipes: https://ifttt.com/recipes


This tool has a lot of potential - definitely worth filing away for the day you need to make these services work together.

How To Make It Easy for Others To Retweet Your Quality PDF or eBook

How To Make It Easy for Others To Retweet Your Quality PDF or eBook | Mobile & Web Development News | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Knowing how to facilitate the sharing of your good work is a key skill today, as if it isn't easy, immediate and frictionless, most people will not take the extra time to stop and invest their own time to let their friends know.


This is why knowing how to add a Retweet button at the end of your eBook or PDF guide can be so useful and effective. And by the way, retweeting is not the same as tweeting. So if you know how to package a ready-made "tweet" for others to use, the benefits you get are more than just one.


From the original article by Michael Stelzner: "Did you know you can add retweet buttons inside your PDF files?


The benefit: readers can effortlessly share your great work with their Twitter followers—just by clicking a button in your PDF file.


Below I lay out how to do this in six simple steps."



Useful. Well explained. 7/10

This post is from 2009, does the feature still work in the same way? In your own work, have you found this valuable? I'm thinking of testing it.
Robin Good's comment, September 4, 2012 1:42 AM
Beth, it should work to this day. I had used it last year and just run into it again. Only problem is that the code in the article is for the old twitter. New twitter has different code. Use http://twitter.com/intent/tweet?status= and it should work fine.
