Community News: What PHP Needs (A Twitter Thread)

Community News: What PHP Needs (A Twitter Thread)
In an effort to get some real feedback from the community about the state of PHP and what they think it needs, Sean Coates asked on Twitter for people to respond with their suggestions as to what could help make PHP better and what the project itself needs.PHP's intentional stagnation is eating away at me. I'm working on a list of things I think #PHP needs. What's on your list? Tag it #phpneedsThere's been a great response already with suggestions ranging from features the language itself needs out to...

Derick Rethans' Blog: Xdebug on github

Derick Rethans' Blog: Xdebug on github
As Derick Rethans notes in his latest post, the Xdebug project is now on github and can be found under his account.I've just opened my Xdebug repository on github. Importing my old SVN repository was a bit of a task. With the help of Ole Marius Smestad I managed to cook up a bash script to import and fix-up the repository. In the meanwhile I've learned more about git than I ever wanted to know, but still not enough.Besides the source for Xdebug itself, you'll also notice repositories for the Xdebug...

You're Open SourceaNow What? (Communication - Part 2)

You're Open SourceaNow What? (Communication - Part 2)
In case you missed it, this post is a continuation of another post looking a some of the things I've learned in the time I've spent as an open source project organizer for Joind.in. In this second post I'm going to keep looking at communication and the role it plays in the project. The focus will be a little bit different, though - this time it's more about internal communication. Keeping all of the contributors to your project informed and involved is a task to itself, but this should be only half of...

Xdebug on github

Xdebug on github
Xdebug on github London, UK Wednesday, June 22nd 2011, 21:47 BST I've just opened my Xdebug repository on github. Importing my old SVN repository was a bit of a task. With the help of Ole Marius Smestad I managed to cook up a bash script to import and fix-up the repository. In the meanwhile I've learned more about git than I ever wanted to know, but still not enough. I maintain that, although git is very powerful, it is also a lot less intuitive than SVN (or even CVS). In any case, Xdebug is now on...

Zend Developer Zone: Jump In Camp - Who is here and what are they doing?

Zend Developer Zone: Jump In Camp - Who is here and what are they doing?
On the Zend Developer Zone Cal Evans has a new post looking at an event Microsoft is holding this week, the SQL Server Jump In! Camp, and who's there and what's going on:This is a different kind of Camp, the focus is on writing code, not necessarily learning new techniques. That is not to say that there isn't learning, showcasing and demoing going on, but it is obviously not the focus of the week.Projects that are represented at the camp include PEAR, Frapi, CakePHP, Zend Framework, VoceComm and Agavi....

Symfony Blog: Symfony2: Getting Easier - Interactive Generators
On the Symfony blog they've posted the latest in their "Getting Easier" series looking at some of the things being done for the framework to help make it more appealing for those just coming in. In this new article they look at the new interactive generators that help you create the code you'll need to set up your bundles without a lot of manual effort.symfony1 has generators for all those things, but until now, Symfony2 was not very good at generating code. Well, that's "fixed" now, thanks to the new...

You're Open SourceaNow What? (Communication - Part 1)
I've had an idea rolling around in the back of my mind for a little while now and the Call for Papers for ZendCon brought it up and into focus in the last few weeks. I am a part of the Joind.in project, a community event feedback site that's also an open source project. My co-conspirator Lorna Mitchell and I have worked hard over the past year or so really trying to make the project the best it can be. There's been a lot of learning that's gone on during that time, so I wanted to share some of that in a...

Gearman Priorities And Persistent Storage

Gearman Priorities And Persistent Storage
I have been writing a bit about Gearman lately, including installing it for PHP and Ubuntu, actually using it from PHP and also how I use persistent storage with Gearman. I'm moving on to look at adding jobs of different priorities. I use Gearman entirely as a point to introduce asynchronous-ness in my application. There is a complicated and image-heavy PDF to generate and this happens on an automated schedule. To do this, I use the GearmanClient::doBackground method. This inserts a priority 1 job into...

Rob Allen's Blog: Zend_Config_Ini and a string

Rob Allen's Blog: Zend_Config_Ini and a string
In a new post today Rob Allen shows a method you can drop into your Zend Framework application to allow Zend_Config_Ini to take in a string instead of being restricted to loading a file.With PHP 5.3 however there is is a new function called parse_ini_string() which will allow us to load arbitrary ini string into Zend_Config objects. This can't go into Zend Framework 1 though due to our PHP 5.2.4 minimum version requirement. As I needed this for a project, I extended Zend_Config_Ini to support this...
