As you might know, the horde project does not only release a set of production quality software (and an interesting bunch more which are not yet release quality) but also provides over 80 well-designed loosely coupled libraries which help you build websites, business applications or even commandline tools. To stress that point, the Horde Project now put a link to the list of components right on their frontpage. Use Horde_Rdo, a lightweight ORM layer or use the RFC-compliant Imap_Client library which performs equally or even better compared to PHP’s interpreter extension written in c. Horde_Auth, a versatile and pluggable authentication layer, has recently been featured in a series of blog posts by lead developer Jan Schneider.
Like in Symfony or Zend Framework, Components are released along with a PHPUnit based test suite adapted in the Horde_Test class and can be obtained individually through the Horde Pear Channel.
Yesterday the horde project released alpha versions of Horde Framework 4 and the Groupware apps (Notes, Calendar, Email, Filter,Address Book, Tasks)
I did a test drive and they basically work. IMP has been improved a lot and now integrates the mobile and ajax interface versions which came as separate apps in Horde 3. DIMP (Ajax version) now plays more nicely together with classic non-Ajax horde applications.
I will begin distribution packaging for SUSE Linux around the official release on April 05, 2011.
