The last couple of days I’ve been trying to read as much as I could about the Zend Framework. I’m still pretty well totally lost. The reason I even want to learn is that I have a need to use the Google API for a Calendar feature on a website i’m developing. However, it is just a small portion of the website. My understanding is that Zend Framework really is only ideal for large applications.
Is it really necessary to install all of zend framework on my little cpanel web hosting account in order to use the Google Calendar API library? Isn’t the library just a series of functions? Would it be possible to just include() the file in order to use them or is Zend Framework absolutely necessary?
Thanks for any direction you can provide including any resources for absolute beginners!
