An article on zf-mvc-auth

authentication

#1

I think whomever wrote the README for zf-mvc-auth was in code burn out mode. By the end of the article we’re getting a lesson on how delegator factories work but what zf-mvc-auth implements is fantastic! Read on for my custom adapter article: http://blog.tomhanderson.com/2017/10/using-zf-mvc-auth-for-custom.html

This is not a useful assertion to make, and denigrates the work done by contributors. More useful would be a pull request with documentation updates, filling in the details you feel are missing.

Considering that most folks will go to the documentation, would you consider re-purposing your article for the documentation?


#3

I do like to keep some light-heartedness in my writings. Sure this is all technically technical writing but I don’t drop a stitch unintentionally.

I think the work of this article would go very well in a larger documentation work for zf-mvc-auth but I feel limited by the single README.md which is already straining my back buffer. I’d like to rewrite this to a series of docs. This approach has been working well for me recently such as http://zf-doctrine-audit.readthedocs.io but I expect the docs to end up at https://github.com/zfcampus/apigility-documentation/tree/master/auth so I don’t know where new documentation will be best applied. In my recent work I reference my readthedocs documentation directly from the README.md space and dispose of the README.md file contents.

Are you suggesting a README.md editing or can we restructure the docs for this repo?


#4

Ideally, we’ll restructure the docs for the zfcampus repos to work in a similar fashion to what we do for docs.zendframework.org. This is a longer term goal, however.

In the short-term, I’d recommend adding them to https://github.com/zfcampus/apigility-documentation — this repository contains docs including tutorials, cookbook entries, and any cross-cutting concerns.

Thanks!

Here’s the first pass at the doc most related to the blog I created (new file)

I don’t know how to finish the file because I don’t know PDO. Help is appreciated.

I’m going to move this conversation to the PR. https://github.com/zfcampus/apigility-documentation/pull/78
