I wrote this for myself instead of for other people. The short code example is found on my wiki (http://wiki.ekini.net/main/Zend_Layout).
Basically it is a very quick overview of Zend_Layout — more like a cheatsheet (again). The bootstrap, the directory structure and then the controller and view part. It is based on Akrabat`s Zend_Layout Tutorial.
Magento is based on zend platform if your planning an e-commerce site try it out… its still on beta.. though…
Thanks roy… what version of Zend Framework is Magneto based on? Right now, ZF 1.5 RC is really nice – see Zend_Layout and Zend_Form. Also this: http://wiki.ekini.net/main/KillerPHP_tutorial
Thanks, going to try it out.
