New Installer Available

April 16th, 2009

To help simplify the process of setting up a Bedrock application, we’ve added a nifty little installer app to help you get things set up. Currently it handles all the basics, including system requirement checks, directory settings, database settings, and a few other miscellaneous configuration options.

Rather than waiting until Alpha 2, I thought it might be nice to release it right away. To get it, grab the latest release and navigate your browser to the public root of the application once you extract the files.

  • message: SSL is required

If you run into any problems, or find the installer not working as expected, drop by the forums and let us know!

Bedrock Uncovered!

April 1st, 2009

Today marks Bedrock Framework’s first publicly available preview! This pre-release version includes all of the framework’s core functionality, and a few extra bells and whistles to keep things interesting.

Because this is a pre-release alpha, it is not recommended for use in production environments. That being said, I think you will be happy with what is already available:

  • Bedrock Core
    • Nestable Controller Objects
    • ORM Database Engine
    • Theme-able View Objects
    • Stack-Aware Logging
  • Additional Features
    • Growl Support
    • FireBug Support
    • REST Data API
    • Form Building/Validation Tools

So stop reading my boring post and go check it out! Feel free to drop us a line if you find any bugs/problems, or if you would like to get involved with the project. Documentation is still a work in progress, so ask in the forums if you can’t find the details you need.
