Moving from CakePHP to Lithium: Helpers
I love CakePHP and I love Lithium. I imagine many other people will also love both or one or the other or parts from one or the other or neither or enough already. I also suspect that many people will find themselves moving from CakePHP to Lithium. I believe it will be a somewhat common and natural transition. However, we're missing something. Oh right, tons of helpers and other classes!
But wait! There already exists a few helpers for Lithium that act like CakePHP's helpers! So the whole point of this blog post is to say, "Hey! Migration might not be as bad as you think after all." Ok, ok, a few helpers is really not a solution for alllll of the tools CakePHP has but these are, well, helpful. I think Alexander Morland (alkemann) did an amazing job re-writing some helpers for Lithium. You can grab the helpers from his Github repository here. So I wanted to share my discovery and spread the word.
