Modifying the scaffolding code
The previous chapter introduces some of the various framework packages available for PHP programming. Using a framework package can help simplify your web application development efforts, but you have to follow the framework rules. This chapter dives into creating a simple application using CakePHP so you can get a feel for just how frameworks operate, and how you can add your own PHP touches to the code they generate.
Building the Template
The CakePHP framework package creates a lot of the behind-the-scenes code for your application for you. That allows you to focus more on what’s important: the code that does all the application-specific work.
