CakePHP soon as Pear Package?

Mustapha tries to create a Pear package of CakePHP. Up to now he was not successful. He writes in his post:

…I tried to see if it is easy to make cakephp into a pear package. The first problem I see is the ROOT constant which is used in many places in the framework (32 times in 7 files. I’m using the latest version: RC 1). It makes the separation between the application and cake not easy because it is used by both.

Personally, I do not know if it will be possible to create such a package since CakePHP was not designed for such a scenario. Anyway, good luck, Mustapha!

    Let me ask a question: What would be the advantage of having CakePHP as a PEAR package?

    I think there is no real advantage, but it would be convenient for users who already use Pear.

One Trackback/Pingback

He writes in his post: I created a pear package from all files in CakePHP project and added some scripts to make the creation and the deployment of projects and applications easier. […]
