binarycloud is a platform for rapidly developing complex web applications.
It includes basic services like authentication, permissions, a template engine,
database abstraction etc., an extensive collection of libraries, and a framework
for configuring the system and building your own logic. During its six-month gestation
period, binarycloud was used in two commercial production cycles, and is (in
SourceForge lingo) Production/Stable. Go download it
This is where all the base components live:
db/ This is a standard metabase installation. Check it out on PHPClasses.
auth/ The authentication component. Sets a user's permissions.
perm/ Permissions. This relies on user/conf/file_permissions.conf to determine access rules for php files in htdocs/.
tmpl/ Template Engine. Our template engine is unique in that it does not use its own keywords, etc. The template engine populates a defined master template with modules at runtime.
err/ Error Handling. We use a custom error handler to (optionally) log all PHP and binarycloud core errors to the DB.
This is where all libs live. Libraries are logic-only, they never include markup. A sampling of the libraries included in r1:
- Form builder
- Table builder
- Send mail (can send html & plaintext emails)
- Execution timer
- Shopping cart (from phplib)
- Client Sniffer
