Hi guys! Looking for a developer interested in developing a SilverStripe plugin for Z-Ray - a new debugging tool for PHP devs we (Zend) are working on. Can't offer payment, but there are other perks :-) Any takers?
What is it?
What would be involved?
What are the benefits?
Main benefits are publicity and recognition as a plugin developer for Zend. And there's a contest to be announced soon with some cool prizes :-) But, like I said, can't offer money.
Z-Ray is basically a toolbar that displays a variety of information on the request, on all the different PHP elements constructing the page. Best way to describe Z-Ray is to show it in action, in this case on a WordPress app:
The right-most panel is an example of what a plugin looks like. It's a plugin we developed for WordPress devs and shows WordPress-specific info.
That's what a SilverStripe plugin would do - show devs SilverStripe info on the app they're developing...
The rightmost panel is blank :<
Ooooh, you mean the right most button/tab on the Z-ray toolbar.
Ok, I see. Seems like a neat tool. But to develop for it I have to buy it first right?
That's odd. Don't you see a "WordPress" panel with the WordPress icon?
Z-Ray is bundled with Zend Server. So to use it, yes, you'd need to install Zend Server which is a commercial product. There are however options to apply for a free license. If this interests you, Skype me at danielbe.zend
