Garret's talk focused on getting command line tools setup. Before getting started on that he covered how to setup a virtual host for a cake project. Once he got into the cake shell, he covered the basic core shells and how to call shells.
Garret then used bake to create a new project and a database config file. Using
cake bake project and
cake bake db_config.
Up next was creating a schema file with
cake schema generate. The schema file was populated with a few tables to store some information about restaurants. A question was raised about adding and removing columns. Garret demonstrated that as well.
Baking models controllers and views was up next. Using the previously created restaurants table, garret walked through baking a model, controller, and some views. At first a scaffold was used but the views were made concrete very quickly.
The talk ended with a quick tour of the API and TestSuite shell, and how to look up different methods on different classes. Testing was up last and garret ran the freshly baked tests from the CLI. Garret will be continuing this talk later this week.
