Attached is a graphic that outlines a task I'm being asked to do in the Zend framework. Two words: No clue...
I'm making my way through Git as well as some other tutorials, but in the interest of being as efficient as possible, I want to try and focus on learning those skills that are relevant to the task at hand. In other words, as I continue to google terms and other info relevant to the basics, I want to throw out some questions that are specific to the coding objective you see below.
First off, I've got to create a form. I'm still in the shallow end of the pool with the Zend framework and I've just recently popped the hood on a tutorial that shows how to create a login (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L29onMRiP3U
), but how does one create a form within ZF?
Secondly, I need to "parse" some info. I know what that means, but I want some other eyes on this simply because creating an array is usually a means to an end as opposed to an end within itself. The way this looks to me is I'm going to create a form with a textarea in it that will contain the kind of info you see in the recipe. I've then got to create a parser that "explodes" each of the lines into elements that match quantity, measurement and ingredient. It doesn't look like that's going to be entered into a database, I just need to display the array. How would I do that within ZF?
Bottom line: Is the task that I've just outlined match the directions as you see them below and, if so, how do I pull this off in ZF? Granted, there may very well be a great deal of info that needs to be presented in order to answer that question, but even if you wanted to direct me to an already existing tutorial online, that would be awesome.
