Create a blog with MongoDB and Zend Framework

We never run out of the “hello worlds” of the web applications NoSQL-based blogs:

Now this article should have given you a good idea of just how easy it is to integrate MongoDb and the Zend Framework, specifically with the Shanty-Mongo library. I appreciate that there are a lot of things that I’ve not covered here, like the forms, proper security and more thorough validation. I’ve also not gone in to a lot of detail about the wide variety of features that are available with MongoDB, such as storing documents and exactly how replication works. But I hope that I’ve whet your appetite for learning more.

We’ve had a blog engine based on MongoDB using Mongomapper and also a guide to Zend and MongoDB to be run on one of the MongoDB cloud hosts, but never a blog with MongoDB and Zend. All combinations allowed!

Quick Guide to Zend and MongoDB on MongoHq

We already covered that Zend framework is trying to make NoSQL adoption easier looking to integrating with CouchDB and MongoDB.

The linked article is a quick guide to using Zend with MongoDB hosted on MongoHq (note: anyway hosting on MongoHq is optional)

As the name slightly foreshadows MongoHq is a currently bit pricey cloud-based hosting solution for MongoDb databases provided by CommonThread. Since they went live a few weeks ago I signed up for the small plan and started to successfully re-thinker with it in an exploratory Zend Framework based application.


Zend and NoSQL Adoption

I have argued previously that even if it is clear that NoSQL is here to stay, integration with popular frameworks is a critical phase in NoSQL adoption.

A while back I have reported about the advances made by one of the most popular Python frameworks, Django for becoming more NoSQL friendly (nb the initiative is more generic and aims at allowing multi-database usage from Django).

It looks like Zend, a very popular PHP framework, is looking to seamlessly integrate with some NoSQL solutions: CouchDB[1] and MongoDB[2]. These proposals (nb I don’t know the status of these proposals) are an interesting read as they offering extremely detailed information about how the integration will be implemented and I’d say they are a good example of a process to be followed by other frameworks looking to open their doors to NoSQL solutions.
