Managing Mobile and Non-mobile Versions of a Site Using Tera-WURFL and Zend Framework

Posted in Mobile, PHP, Programming and Zend Framework on Tuesday, the 12th of February, 2008.

This is a quick proof-of-concept I put together after a discussion on how to deal with running a mobile site and a 'full' web site on the same hostname in a sane way, and to transparently route user agents to the appropriate site.

Hi,
I'm Idel Fuschini and I have created Apache Mobile Filter that allows you to access WURFL from any programming language, not just Java and php that is traditionally used for dynamic mobile web sites.

The module detects the mobile device and passes the WURFL capabilities on to the other web application as environment variables. It can also be used to resize images on the fly to adapt to the screen size of the mobile device.

Let me know your opinion.

Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that Tera-WURFL 2.0 RC5 is out and the Stable 2.0.0 should be out before the end of the year. I have rewritten almost all of the code in a PHP5 OOP method and it is much more accurate and feature-filled. I changed the class name from "tera_wurfl" to "TeraWurfl", so you will need to make that change accordingly in your extension above.
