I love PHP. That’s a fact that I managed to prove ever since college. I self studied the language as well as the underlying platform due to my interest in learning; which comes from the fact that I know its purpose. For this post, I’m going to put some perspective on how do we create a CakePHP application and put the bootstrap in to make a more responsive user interface design for the web.
Step 1: Ready your Cake App – skip this if you already done some baking – if you want to get something going from scratch, follow my simple registration tutorial here: Registration Example
Step 2: Download BootStrap for CakePHP
Since the birth of boostrap a lot of developers created their own mix and match using the front-end framework. Either you download an existing one or create your own. For this tutorial, lets download an existing one: CakePHP Theme
Extract the zip and put it in your Theme directory inside your cakePHP project.
Step 3: Set the $theme on your cakePHP AppController.php
We basically need to set up the global variable $theme and put the folder name of the bootstrap to use it.
