I'm working on a web page project. I decided to use Apache, PHP (5.1.7, version imposed by my service provider) and Dwoo (templating) for this purpose.
I want to route URLs to my templates. I'm aware there are many frameworks doing this kind of thing. I'm just wondering if there's a nice way to achieve it without.
I've set up my project as follows:
- src/dwoo - Dwoo files
- index.php - This should handle routing. Currently it just renders the front page of the site using a template.
- templates - Templates that represent actual pages.
There is minimal amount of business logic (no real model). It's all just pretty static pages. Using templates makes maintenance work easier (inheritance ie.).
Any idea how to set up routing in this case? I guess ideally each given URL should route via index.php that then somehow decides which template to render (ie. /category/pagename would map to templates/category/pagename.tpl).
mod_rewriteto route everything to a single
index.phpfile. Then check the variable in
$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']within this file to dispatch to the required handler.
This configuration will enable
mod_rewrite, if it's installed:
