PHPFog is a relatively new cloud hosting provider specifically designed for PHP applications. Their mission statement is “less management, more code” and the entire platform is centered around the most used and reliable PHP tools. As an example I tried to start a brand new WordPress blog on a free plan and it took just 3 minutes! Also, the process of installing and updating plugins and themes is instantaneous!
In this tutorial I’ll build a simple subcription form application using two of PHPFog supported frameworks: Slim for the PHP part and Twitter Bootstrap for the CSS part. As a bonus the app will take advantage of the new responsive features of the Bootstrap 2 framework and will be usable out of the box from desktop PCs, tablets and smartphones.
