Starting a CakePHP 2.0 Project with cakeinit

The latest version of cakeinit (0.8.5) now includes support to create CakePHP 2.0 projects. To create a new project you only need two commands. This is an alternative to downloading the zip or tar.gz file and extracting.

# download cakeinit
curl -o cakeinit.php
# Create an app called mycakeapp based on the cakephp-2.0 bundle
php ./cakeinit.php cakephp-2.0 mycakeapp

The cakephp-1.3 bundle has also been updated to pull the recently released CakePHP 1.3.11 version of the framework. If you get some ugly permission errors don’t forget to prepend sudo to the above commands.
