Symfony Blog: Symfony plugin deprecation

Symfony Blog: Symfony plugin deprecation
The Symfony project has officially introduced something that can help with the future of your Symfony-related code/plugin - the ability to deprecate the plugin (via the plguin system) and let everyone using it know it's no longer in development.There are several reasons why a plugin may be deprecated. The symfony core framework might have included the functionality of the plugin in a recent release, or another plugin with the same functionality might be doing a better job at it. Whatever the reason, a...

Brian Moon's Blog: PHP generated code tricks

Brian Moon's Blog: PHP generated code tricks
Brian Moon has posted a few tricks he's figured out in relation to generating dynamic PHP code (a questionable method for some) you can use elsewhere in your application.Something that is great about PHP is that you can write code that generates more PHP code to be used later. Now, I am not saying this a best practice. I am sure it violates some rule in some book somewhere. But, sometimes you need to be a rule breaker.He gives the example of pushing the contents of an array out to a cache file (since the...

Google Docs Backup Script

Google Docs Backup Script
We are starting to use Google Docs quite a bit more at work and unsurprisingly the question of backup and offline availability comes into play. As part of the backup strategy we also wanted to capture incremental versions of the documents (on a daily basis) in the event we needed to go back to the prior versions. To this affect I whipped up a small (120 lines) PHP script that will retrieve all your Google documents and save them to a local directory, in the event the document was created/updated in the...

Rob Allen's Blog: Akrabat_Db_Schema_Manager: table prefix support
Rob Allen has a new post to his blog today talking about an update he's made to the Akrabat_Db_Schema_Manager component for the Zend Framework to allow it to support table prefixes.I've updated Akrabat_Db_Schema_Manager so that it now supports table prefixes. It uses the application.ini key of resources.db.table_prefix as I couldn't think of a better one :) and then uses that for the schema_version table's name and also makes it available in your change objects.He illustrates with a sample setting for...

PHP remote debugging with Xdebug and Eclipse PDT

PHP remote debugging with Xdebug and Eclipse PDT
Debugging is an invaluable part of software development. I find it very useful in a variety of situations, for instance when I want to understand how a routine works or I need to get rid of a bug that is not exactly easy to fix just by reading the code. My main goal in this post is to show you how to set your debugging environment with Eclipse PDT and Xdebug.

Deploying app updates to a cluster

Deploying app updates to a cluster
So William was asking on twitter how to best deploy symfony apps to a cluster of servers. There are actually some nice deployment tools inside the symfony cli that ease deployment to a single server, but that doesn't really cover the cluster case. Actually I assume that if you have a cluster of servers the best deployment strategy should probably be optimized against your specific use case. But let's make this question a bit more general: How do you deploy updates to your PHP apps running a clustered...

Your Open Source Stories

Your Open Source Stories
In this post, I am asking for your help and input, although it might seem like a post about nothing in particular to begin with. Please keep reading! Last month, I gave a talk at TEK-X entitled "Open Source Your Career".

So in my talk I told stories about situations I'd met in my professional life and how I'd...

twilioKit php starter kit

twilioKit php starter kit
I've adapted my ZFKit for an upcoming Twilio presentation (codestock next weekend!) and created a new project on github for it under the project name atwiliokita. AZFKit was updated a little bit (a basic menu/navigation was added with Zend_Navigation, some example unit tests added) and used as the basis for this. You can see this in action if you want to play around with it a bit. I've modified the twilio REST client available from Twilio.com. AWhile functional, it wasn't the easiest thing to use, and...

Dutch PHP (un)Conference 2010

PHP generated code tricks

PHP generated code tricks
Something that is great about PHP is that you can write code that generates more PHP code to be used later. Now, I am not saying this a best practice. I am sure it violates some rule in some book somewhere. But, sometimes you need to be a rule breaker. A simple example is taking a database of configuration information and dumping it to an array. We do this for each publication we operate. We have a publication table. It contains the name, base URL and other stuff that is specific to that publication....
