Integrating ZF2 into Yii - use case demonstrated

Created 6 years ago by Boaz, updated 5 years ago by Boaz.

I needed to use a class from ZF2 in my Yii project. I've read probably all there is about this subject and still I needed lots of trial & errors to get it working, probably due to my lack of experience working with namepsaces and ZF2 in general. Also, the resources on the web are all partial, at best. Most simply refer to ZF1 where things are technically different. When I got it all working I de...

Upload files in Yii2 with MongoDb and GridFs

Created 5 years ago by edoardo849, updated 4 years ago by skworden.

Uploading files in a webapp can be extremely tricky and sometimes the quickest way to do it is to store the file directly in the webserver or into a DNS (like Amazon S3) and then to save the link and the metadata inside a table in the DB. The thing is that you'll have to deal with file permissions, server storage, file management and so on (which is perfectly fine, by the way).

Auto-update denormalized attributes with MongoDb and Yii2

Created 5 years ago by edoardo849, updated 5 years ago by CeBe.

You have different collections in MongoDb with de-normalized attributes. As you may know, due to its not-join nature, MongoDb tends to encourage repetition of the same value in different collections (de-normalization). In this MongoDb is opposed to a more SQL-like approach where you usually reference only the ID of the value with a foreign key.
