PHPMaster.com: Introduction to MongoDB
PHPMaster.com has a new tutorial today for those wanting to get into the MongoDb document-driven (NoSQL) database but haven't known where to start. This tutorial walks you through some of the basics including setup and configuration of both the server and PHP client side.There are a lot of implementations of the NoSQL concept, but one of the most famous and widely used NoSQL databases is MongoDB. I think it's one of the most interesting NoSQL databases available currently, and it's considered by many to...

Using PHP-GTK to serve Web Applications to html 5 Browsers
Using PHP-GTK to serve Web Applications to html 5 Browsers By Manuel Lemos Yes, you read it right, GTK+, the Gnome Toolkit library, normally used to create desktop applications, can now be used to serve the same applications via the Web to a browser that supports html 5 canvas objects. PHP-GTK is a PHP extension that uses the GTK+ library to build PHP desktop applications. So it can eventually benefit for this GTK library enhancements to build PHP-GTK based applications that can be served over the Web...

CodeForest.net: Obfuscate your e-mail address with PHP, JavaScript and CSS

CodeForest.net: Obfuscate your e-mail address with PHP, JavaScript and CSS
A new post on CodeForest.net today gives you a technique for obfuscating email addresses with a combination of PHP, CSS and Javascript. It uses ROT13 for the obfuscation and some tricky CSS to keep it usable for the human visitors.According to Wikipedia, more than 97% of all e-mails sent over the net are unwanted. That's around 200 billion spam messages per day. To keep this insane amount of spam out of your inbox, you should keep your e-mail safe when you display it on web. One of the ways to keep it...

Pavel Shevaev's Blog: Make php-fpm execute arbitrary PHP scripts via socket

Pavel Shevaev's Blog: Make php-fpm execute arbitrary PHP scripts via socket
Pavel Shevaev has a quick new post to his blog showing how to get PHP-FPM to execute PHP scripts via a socket request.We are using APC cache very heavily in our projects and during project deployment the cache must be flushed and warmed up. A common solution to warmup the APC cache is to fetch some special page via HTTP which does the job. The problem with this approach is that it's not reliable enough when PHP is served via several fastcgi back-ends.To solve the problem, he uses a PHP-FPM module to work...

Interfacing The PHP World Would Be Good

Interfacing The PHP World Would Be Good
With some precious free time today, I sat down to read Lukas Smith's Interfacing The PHP World. It was good timing since last night I heard someone complain, again, about tight coupling in Zend Framework so I was in a good frame of mind to digest the blog post. Before we start, tight coupling exists in a scenario where any one class relies upon another concrete class type (usually enforced using type hinting). Because the coupling is between two concrete classes, the only way to bypass it is through...

ZendCasts.com: Building a JSON Endpoint with SLIM (Part 1)
On ZendCasts.com today, the next part of their series looking at using the Slim microframework has been posted. This is part one of a tutorial building a JSON endpoint for a web service.You'll need some of the base that he created in this previous screencast to follow along (the basic structure, really). His takes his basic "hello world" application and builds on it to add a "model" to pull name data from and has the "/names" action respond with a JSON-formatted message (and an "application/json"...

Symfony Blog: All symfony 1.x versions available on Github
Fabien Potencier has made an announcement on the Symfony Blog today about all the availability of previous Symfony versions on github.symfony1 is well and alive and many developers are now using it for projects hosted on Git. But as the official symfony 1 repository is hosted on Subversion, it's not always easy to get things versioned easily. As of today, this becomes much more easier. If you are using Git and symfony1, you can now use the official symfony1 Git clone.There are branches for each of the...

Justin Carmony's Blog: Setting Up Nginx & PHP-FPM on Ubuntu 10.04

Justin Carmony's Blog: Setting Up Nginx & PHP-FPM on Ubuntu 10.04
Justin Carmony has a new tutorial posted to his blog today about setting up Nginx and PHP-FPM on Ubuntu in a few easy steps (thanks to some package management).This is another wonderful setup that I've found myself using rather than the traditional Apache & mod_php setup. [...] Ngnix, unlike Apache, doesn't actually load PHP. Instead, it hands it off as a proxy to a "php handler" which acts like an Application Server. So nginx by itself won't serve PHP files, but just static files.He briefly introduces...

Fabien Potencier's Blog: What is Symfony2?

Fabien Potencier's Blog: What is Symfony2?
Fabien Potencier of the Symfony project (framework) recently made a presentation at the Symfony Day conference and answered the question "what is Symfony2?"When I ask people what Symfony2 is for them, most of them say something along the lines of: Symfony2 is a full-stack web framework written in PHP. Some also add that this is an MVC framework. And some others add that this is a decoupled framework. This is all fine and correct. But my definition is a bit different. Let me tell you what it is and why I...

I will tell you about drawing graphs with GD. Plus - we will smooth our graph with curve lines using cubic splines interpolation method.

Hasin Hayder's Blog: Developing PHP applications in the cloud with free cloud hosting providers
Hasin Hayder has put together a list of cloud hosting providers that are already set and ready to go for PHP applications. His list highlights a few of the free ones.I will be focusing on some of these free cloud hosting options available out there. One thing to note before you proceed - these free cloud hosting options are very good to develop and test your applications (in dev+staging environment) and it may not be wise to deploy the production version of your application with any free plan (Except...

Lukas Smith's Blog: Why bother?

Lukas Smith's Blog: Why bother?
Lukas Smith has put together a recent post to his blog with some thoughts on standardization of interfaces in PHP applications to help improve code quality and interoperability.In my previous blog post I was brainstorming the possibility of collaboration between various frameworks to define a set of common interfaces. But I kind of failed to explain why this would be useful. Herman's "rebuttal" made this omission on my part quite clear. [...] That being said the open questions left in my previous blog...
