Coming back to CakePHP after a few years away. I'm rebuilding an app using 2.5.5. I think the last time I used Cake, the stable version was at the 1.x level.
Back in the day, I would use scaffolding a lot, and then bake everything using the console (I think... I'm still in a bit of a fog since it has been so long... my memory is so hazy).
I thought scaffolding was pretty useful. Why was it deprecated? Is there a solid scaffolding plugin out there that is super stable? If most people aren't using scaffolding at all these days, what is your typical workflow for building new apps?
