Re: [jfw] Dummy guide for joomla frameworks

Hi Viktor,

Piotr_cz's already got you covered with the error about the configuration file.

I'll tackle the other part of the question though……  I was in the same place about 6 months ago.  I had been building Joomla components but needed to step it up a bit for a more complex project so thought I would use the Framework.  The info on Andrew's site (learn.theartofjoomla.com) and the sample app you're already playing with are both great starting points.  

From building CMS component's there's a few things that took a little bit to get used to:

  • namespacing - everything is namespaced
  • how un-opinionated the framework is compared to the CMS
  • having to bootstrap my own app instead of relying on the CMS
  • the format of the config file (config.json) that you've just found!

Other than that though, there's a certain sense of familiarity with how things work if you've been building components, so it doesn't take long to get into the groove.  I can say it is definitely worth sticking the learning curve out because it is a great framework to use!

Hi All,
i've been working for joomla CMS for years, and now the project got more complex and its time for me to build custom solution beyond the CMS.

Now, i tried to find books about joomla frameworks and online course, but there's none.
i found: http://learn.theartofjoomla.com/framework-solutions.html
but the step one (getting started) has problem as the output keep 'telling me' : "Configuration file could not be parsed" , the same question asked 6 month ago (on the comment section) and still have no reply till now..

browsed here: http://framework.joomla.org/, and no clue about getting started

I kinda back to square one. I'm able to create joomla component (MVC), but this frameworks is bit advanced to me (at the moment)...

So, is there a dummy guide of joomla frameworks ? does joomla frameworks target average coder like me (i only able to code Joomla Component and Wordpress, no experience on other frameworks like CodeIgniter, Laravel, Yii, etc) ? as my learning time is very limited i'm hoping a getting started guide rather than test-trial through api docs......a start with simple "Hello World", Database Connection, Sample Apps would be a great start !

Please share your opinion, Thanks !
