Developer Notes
Proposers My Name
Zend Liaison TBD
Revision 1.1 - 28 April 2011: Second Draft. (wiki revision: 7)

Table of Contents

1. Overview

Zend_Service_Facebook provides an easy to API to Facebook's API and model-classes, without using facebook's own class.

*Component will be able to provide model objects for all types of facebook objects

4. Dependencies on Other Framework Components

  • Zend_Exception
  • Zend_Http_Client
  • Zend_JSON

5. Theory of Operation

The Component can be used to query facebook's graph api to get information about different type of facebook objects, like users, albums, ...
It should act as a facade to the api. Stuff like $facebookUser = $facebook->getUser('userId') will provide an easy way to access the api. In addition return data will be presented in model objects with generic getters.

6. Milestones / Tasks

  • Milestone 1: Write object factory class
  • Milestone 2: Write object classes
  • Milestone 3: Write facebook access classes
  • Milestone 4: Unit tests exist, work, and are checked into SVN.
  • Milestone 5: Documentation exists.

    <p>Is anything missing to proceed to pending recommendation state or is Zend just busy?</p>

    1. Aug 18, 2011

      <p>It's largely us being on hiatus pending ZF 2.0 progress. I should note that proposals for ZF 1.0 are effectively closed - there may be one final release on the run up to ZF 2.0 but that is the version new proposals should really be targeting. The issue there, of course, is that ZF 2.0 is still taking shape so proposers need to wait for items like the new Zend\Http to be finalised before HTTP enabled components can be fully finalised and written.</p>

      <p>We'll be re-activating the Community Review Team in a few weeks at which point we'll document the proposal process for ZF 2.0.</p>
