Sharing feedback with Twitter using Bit.ly – Part 2

Sharing feedback with Twitter using Bit.ly – Part 2

In our previous installment we looked at setting our backend up so it could automatically retrieve the bit.ly URL for a given URL and store it as part of the data for a given instance of a Content model. What we’re going to do this time is take a look at the front end components.

Sometimes I find that doing things backwards can actually make things a little more clear. That way you can see the end result and then, as you work backwards, see how all the pieces work together.

Sharing feedback with Twitter using Bit.ly – Part 1

Over here there is a good article on sharing page feedback on Twitter. I’ll end up doing something similar but in a different manner. A little while I posted an article (Do you queue?) on how you could use the Zend Server Job Queue to run individual tasks. Well you can do the same thing here. I’ve made a few changes since that article, namely that Zend_Application is passed in both to execute() and to run() so I could easily retrieve application settings. Don’t know why I didn’t think of that earlier. Oh well.
