It is very difficult to do something when there is no normal manual, but there is only an API without any examples. Well, you can read blogs - this is the only way. But a lot of time is spent on this, and understanding because of the fragmentation of information no longer becomes, but rather the opposite.
This situation is now with CakePHP. Version 1.2 does not have its own manual at all, and 1.1 is too small for the working version.
