Slawek Lukasiewicz's Blog: Working with date and time in object oriented way

Slawek Lukasiewicz's Blog: Working with date and time in object oriented way
Slawek Lukasiewicz has a new post today about working with dates and times in PHP on a more object-oriented fashion than in the more traditionally procedural way of just calling PHP date/time functions on the string values.Date and time manipulation in PHP is mostly connected with functions like: date, time or strtotime. They can be sufficient, but if we want to deal with dates like with objects - we can use DateTime class. DateTime class is not only straightforward wrapper for standard functions, it has...

Robert Eisele's Blog: PHP Hacking

Robert Eisele's Blog: PHP Hacking
Robert Eisele has a new post (and some new source) on his blog today that has gotten the PHP community both up in arms and excited about the potential it offers - a fork of PHP that's been modified to include lots of little improvements for changes in performance, some new PHP functions, usability improvements and changes in the MySQLi/mysqlnd drivers.It took me a while but here's a new toy. Today I publish my own PHP fork based on the PHP 5.3.6 code base with a few changes that make the everydays...

Pango for PHP PECL channel

Pango for PHP PECL channel
It occurs to me that though I wrote an introduction post about Pango for PHP, I forgot to mention that it's actually installable using the PECL installer. pecl channel-discover pecl.mgdm.net pecl install channel://pecl.mgdm.net/Pango-0.1.0Assuming you have the required development packages installed, it should go off and install it. You may still need to add theextension=pango.soline to your php.ini. Hope this helps someone give it a go! As ever, any feedback is welcome.

Anthony Wlodarski's Blog: Zend Framework and why it is important to read the source code.

Anthony Wlodarski's Blog: Zend Framework and why it is important to read the source code.
Anthony Wlodarski makes an important point about what one of your first steps should be when considering a framework for your application - be sure to read the source first. In his case, it was the Zend Framework.One thing I learned early on with ZF was that the curators and associates in the ZF ecosystem always fall back to the root of "read the code/api/documentation". With good reason too! It is not the volunteers simply shrugging you off but it is for your own good.He includes an example of the...

Zend Developer Zone: Getting an OAuth Access Token from the Command Line

Zend Developer Zone: Getting an OAuth Access Token from the Command Line
Tim Lytle has written up a new tutorial for the Zend Developer Zone talking about OAuth and making one of the more difficult parts - getting an access token - a bit simpler using a command-line application.OAuth is great - there's no need to save users' passwords, it's - in theory - a consistent way to interact with other services, and it's hopefully something that your users are familiar and comfortable using. But if you're not just interacting with your users' accounts - for example, your application...

Elvin Haci's Blog: Using Python and PHP together

Elvin Haci's Blog: Using Python and PHP together
Elvin Haci has a recent post to his blog showing how he set up PHP and Python to work on the same machine, just on different ports of the same Apache instance. His example is based on Ubuntu, but the principles can be used just about anywhere.Today i decided to install Python in Ubuntu OS and to use PHP and Python both together. If i hadn't installed php and wanted to have python as only localhost in my OS, so it was easy, there are plenty of examples which show how to do it(for example). But if you have...

JSClasses.org Blog: Lately in JavaScript podcast - Episode 5 (Javascript to Replace PHP?)
From the JSClasses.org site today there's a new episode of their "Lately in Javascript" podcast that asks the question "Is Javascript going to replace PHP?"So it seems that recently Douglas Crockford of Yahoo commented they are considering to replace PHP with Node.js based JavaScript for server side Web applications. On episode 7 of the Lately in JavaScript podcast, Manuel Lemos and Michael Kimsal have Zachary Kessin, author of the Programming HTML 5 Applications book, to debate whether it makes sense to...

Brian Swan's Blog: Performance Tuning PHP Apps on Windows/IIS with Output Caching

Brian Swan's Blog: Performance Tuning PHP Apps on Windows/IIS with Output Caching
Brian Swan has a new post to his blog today showing you how to use caching for performance tuning on your Windows/IIS PHP application. He uses the IIS 7 output caching method instead of an external cacing tool or library.The IIS output caching module allows you to configure IIS to cache dynamic pages generated by PHP. When a PHP page becomes "hot", the content of the page is cached so that is served without executing the script that generates it. [...] With the IIS Output Caching module you can cache all...

PVR twittering recordings in 2 lines

PVR twittering recordings in 2 lines
I'm using MythTV for my TV recording system. Things can go wrong from time to time with such a self-built, on-the-edge system, causing some recordings to fail. That's why I like to keep notified about any finished recordings, especially while I'm on the road, when it really counts that recordings work. So I taught my media PC with two lines of code to send me a tweet for each finished recording, using Horde's excellent Twitter and OAuth libraries.

Getting an OAuth Access Token from the Command Line

Getting an OAuth Access Token from the Command Line
OAuth is great - there's no need to save users' passwords, it's - in theory - a consistent way to interact with other services, and it's hopefully something that your users are familiar and comfortable using. But if you're not just interacting with your users' accounts - for example, your application uses a single account on a service to broadcast messages, or analyze data - getting or renewing the access token can be painful.

Michael Nitschinger's Blog: Securing Lithium Forms

Michael Nitschinger's Blog: Securing Lithium Forms
Michael Nitschinger has a new post to his blog today showing how you can secure the forms in Lithium using the handy CSRF token implemented directly in the framework.CSRF (Cross-Site-Request-Forgery) attacks work by sending arbitary (form) requests from a victim. Normally, the receiving site (in our case the Controller who processes the form data) doesn't know where the data comes from. The CSRF protection in Lithium aims to solve this problem in an elegant and secure way. You can read more about those...

Zend Developer Zone: Book Review: Producing Open Source Software
On the Zend Developer Zone today there's a new book review from Keith Casey covering the Karl Fogel book Producing Open Source Software, a guide to organizing and running a successful open source project and its community.By the time I finished the book a few months later, it rocked my professional world and I couldn't wait to jump into the community fully and completely. To be clear, Karl's book is about the difficulties and challenges of building a team to build a project, but almost all of it is...

DevShed: Cache Data in RAM with PHP
DevShed has posted a new article in their series looking at storage interfaces and how to use them. In this latest article they show how to create a caching layer that will allow you to work with any sort of caching backend you'd like.As with other elements of object-oriented programming, it's possible to use segregated interfaces in a great variety of scenarios and conditions and, therefore, enjoy the benefits that they provide right out of the box. [...] My goal in this article is to create an...

Web Species Blog: Symfony2 - the best framework today?

Web Species Blog: Symfony2 - the best framework today?
In a new post to his Web Species blog Juozas Kaziukenas wonders if Symfony2 is the best framework today for developers looking for something that's robust, flexible and has the potential to "go big, very big".It has its problems and flaws, but let me give you some thoughts why I think it's the framework which is going to go big. Very big. Frameworks are big creatures and naming interesting features can take thousands of words, so this is just a short glimpse of the few things I find interesting, to me....
