The purpose of this tutorial is to demonstrate pagination features of the Zend Framework . As an added bonus I will show you how to combine pagination and data sorting to display sorted tables in your ZF2 web projects. For the purpose of this tutorial we will extend Rob Allen’s famous Album Inventory Tutorial. You can download the complete source code from Github.
In this tutorial we will create a complete Zend Framework 2 application and explore some of the features it provides. We will create a sticky note application based on the styling provide by Codepen. This tutorial is similar to the brilliant inventory tutorial provided by Rob Allen. The major difference is that we will spend more time on styling and we will handle the Create, Read, Update, and Delete (CRUD) operations dynamically using jQuery Ajax. You can download the complete source code from Github.
So you want to start developing your very first web application? You want to know how you can start quickly and develop your first web application? Well here is the good news, you are at the right place. With these web app development tutorial series we are here to guide you through the development of your first web application and more. But, there are few points before we start. First, we have to mention that these tutorial series are meant for more technical audience with prior web design and development experience. Second, there are different approaches to even developing a simple application. You can copy and paste some code together and call it a success, or take a stricter engineering approach and build a code base that would have test cases, easily extendable, or even scalable for future versions, should you decide to build more features on your existing architecture. In this tutorial series we are going to develop a very simple web application, and build more and more on the same code. Because in real life that’s how software evolves. We will also cover some methodologies and software engineering concepts such as Rapid Application Development (RAD), and Continuous Integration (CI), and many more techniques and best practices that would help you with developing more complex systems. We tried to keep these methodologies separate from the coding tutorial sections, so people familiar with the methodologies could jump straight to the code.
So let’s get started with the concept first, and what you should know before starting your very first and simple web application.
