This book is targeted at Mapbender developers and will cover useful topics not needed by administrators or users of Mapbender installations.
Things you should now¶
There are a couple of things you should be familiar with in order to contribute to Mapbender:
- Object-Orientated PHP: We’re using PHP 5.3 which offers full object orientation. No simple scripts anymore.
- Symfony2: This is what we build upon. So read The Book and learn about controllers, templating and the other cool things.
- Docblock annotations: We use ApiGen to generate code documentation. More on this.
The installation procedure from Git is described in the chapter Git-based installation.
