On the back end, I'm using LightVC to handle the VC part of my MVC setup. LightVC is a wonderfully simple Controller / View setup that is easy to extend for simple custom websites like mine.
About my Setup
So far I have only found the need to have one custom class in the LightVC setup (I have other classes, but this is one that modifies the behavior of LVC itself.)
- MyAppController extends AppController
- setTitle($title) New - Helper method to easily set the page title.
- requireJs($jsFile) Override
- requireJsInHead($jsFile) Override
- requireCss($jsFile) Override
- The previous 3 over rides all now take a string or an array of strings and do exactly what you'd expect, acting like normal if a string is passed, and when an array is passed, iterating over the it and adding the files to the stack.
These were just minor changes to the AppController I wanted to make, modifying their behaviour to suit my coding syle:
$this->requireCss(Array( '/lib/game/game.css', '/lib/game/hiscore.css', ));
Now that I think about it, I want to modify that class and do 2 things:
- Make requireJs act like requireJsInHead, and create a new requireJsInBody method to handle that (which I really try to never do.)
- Have all of those methods return the $this object for chaining.
