We use Zend Framework and Smarty extensively in our applications and to make these easily to deploy as well as maintaining supported versions of these against our applications, we’re beginning to include them as Git submodules.
Unfortunately Smarty does not have a Git repository and ZF1 includes this entire project which is far more than we need. As a result, we’ve created and maintain our own clones:
- https://github.com/opensolutions/zf1 - just the Zend library files only. Updated every hour (at ten past the hour) using a script described here.
- https://github.com/opensolutions/smarty - the trunk distribution branch direct from Smarty’s own SVN. Updated hourly (at twenty past the hour) using a script described here.
