# Nov 14th 2017, 14:11 flavius @birdy247 depends if he's willing to pay you above average. You can figure out if its worth the effort to document all the existing functionality based on that
# Nov 14th 2017, 14:10 neon1024 Plus the “well the old site did that” syndrome
# Nov 14th 2017, 14:10 neon1024 It’s a dangerous one as you’ll have significant scope creep
# Nov 14th 2017, 14:10 neon1024 As there will be hidden features
# Nov 14th 2017, 14:09 neon1024 @birdy247 I’d build a spec of the existing functionality, budget against that and add 25%
# Nov 14th 2017, 14:09 nooot77 hey man
# Nov 14th 2017, 13:53 birdy247 How would you approach this?
# Nov 14th 2017, 13:52 birdy247 just "pretty much like this site"
# Nov 14th 2017, 13:52 birdy247 No documents or anything
# Nov 14th 2017, 13:52 birdy247 They want a very high level ballpark
# Nov 14th 2017, 13:51 birdy247 a potential client called to ask how much it would be to replicate a already existing website (or at least 90% the same)
# Nov 14th 2017, 13:51 birdy247 bit of an odd/offtopic one... but Ill put it to you guys anyway :slightly_smiling_face:
# Nov 14th 2017, 13:42 acosonic sorry it's @admad ... Meh I'll just switch to slack...
# Nov 14th 2017, 13:41 acosonic @amad slack, of course...
# Nov 14th 2017, 13:41 acosonic @amad there is version 4 rolling out soon, and there is over 800 plugins, some of them are like telegram chat bots etc...
# Nov 14th 2017, 13:40 admad people still use redmine?
# Nov 14th 2017, 13:25 acosonic if that's interesting...
# Nov 14th 2017, 13:24 acosonic I mean next year :D
# Nov 14th 2017, 13:24 acosonic Hm cool, that's enough time :D I want to speak about Redmine + SVN/GIT (issue-code relationship) + our cake workflow (Demo application, dev server, stage server and production server) and some type of agile/scrum adoption
# Nov 14th 2017, 13:21 dereuromark acosonic: this is just a local meetup, not a conference. the actual conference is next year and is called CakeFest. Just so you know. So no probs, you dont have to burn yourself out. We got the presentations all covered and stuff.
# Nov 14th 2017, 13:03 nooot77 hi , how to view tree in https://book.cakephp.org/3.0/en/orm/behaviors/tree.html , to display categories , parent categories , and articles title for each category
# Nov 14th 2017, 12:52 felix perfect, thank you. i was searching at the wrong pages in the docu
# Nov 14th 2017, 12:51 admad err @felix
# Nov 14th 2017, 12:51 admad @felipemjesuss https://book.cakephp.org/3.0/en/chronos.html#generating-differences
# Nov 14th 2017, 12:49 felix hi, is there a builtin way to calculate the difference in days (or hours any other ..) between two `\Cake\I18n\Date`s ? i know i could for example write a function that compares them by using strtotime()
# Nov 14th 2017, 12:34 acosonic Actually I wanted to say @dereuromark since I haven't switched to slack yet :D
# Nov 14th 2017, 12:28 acosonic @dereuromakr I wanted to create presentation, and apply for talking, but I'm just too busy and too tired :( I'm actually taking this trip to take some break from daily routine, which is managing too many assets...
# Nov 14th 2017, 12:22 admad ``` return $query->where([ 'start_date <=' => $options['today'], 'OR' => [ 'end_date >=' => $options['today'], 'end_date IS' => null ] ]); ```
# Nov 14th 2017, 12:19 diego182 @willem indeed
# Nov 14th 2017, 12:10 willem @stoykovnet you are a god! Sometime the docs can explain simple stuff so difficult
# Nov 14th 2017, 11:54 stoykovnet @willem, wouldn't that suffice? ``` // In some model class. public function findBetweenDates(Query $query, array $options) { return $query->where([ 'OR' => [ ['start_date <=' => $options['today'], 'end_date >=' => $options['today']] ['start_date <=' => $options['today'], 'end_date IS' => null] ] ]); } ```
# Nov 14th 2017, 11:54 neon1024 What query are you trying to write?
# Nov 14th 2017, 11:48 diego182 @willem you can use queryExpressions with $exp->or_ or as array
# Nov 14th 2017, 11:47 obinoob if you feel fine with sql
# Nov 14th 2017, 11:47 obinoob willen above you can read a very simple example on how to use ConnectionManager
# Nov 14th 2017, 11:46 obinoob https://gist.github.com/obinoob/6182a57343f5b8b04cfc57d2d2fa6e1d
# Nov 14th 2017, 11:46 obinoob willem you can either create a query by using the ORM or PDO with prepared statments prety easy...
# Nov 14th 2017, 11:37 willem yes, i noticed, but I have no clue how to create the query. I find it difficult to create an more advanced query using Cake, whilst writing in sql would be easy. Of course i want to use the framework to create the query.
# Nov 14th 2017, 11:03 diego182 awesome!
# Nov 14th 2017, 11:02 obinoob diego182 didn't had a clue about this function existence thank you again http://php.net/manual/en/function.http-build-query.php
# Nov 14th 2017, 11:02 obinoob diego182 that will work just fine :) thank you
