CakePHP Github Roundup
Github is a great resource for any developer. Other developers are constantly publishing new code to Github but sometimes it's hard to find what you are looking for. I will attempt to find some of the better pieces of code hosted on Github for your CakePHP programming pleasure.
Matt Curry probably has one of the best selections of CakePHP code on Github. He has published components, datasources, helpers and plugins. I have used many of libraries in my work, most recently the chat plugin.
Neil Crookes also has some great code in his repository. He recently launched his searchable plugin for in site searching. He also has an accompanying blog post with instructions on how to use the searchable plugin.
Joel Moss has published probably the best migration system for CakePHP that works with YAML files. I have used it in many projects and it has saved me a lot of time setting up my databases. He also has named scope behavior which emulates named scope from Ruby on Rails.
Fabio Kreusch has published a CakePHP Newsletter Plugin that works quite well if you are looking to implement a newsletter into your CakePHP application.
Are you looking to add some ecommerce to your site? Take a look at Sam Anzaroot's CakeCart which is a shopping cart built ontop of CakePHP although he says it is currently in "pre-pre-alpha" stage it is a good place to start.
This is by no means a complete list, just some of the pieces of code I have found useful on Github. If there are any other interesting projects that you know of on Github leave the url in the comments.
