in PHP added by goodphptutorials, on 22/8/2007 beginner tutorials database framework mysql user

In this series of posts I will be showing you how easy it is to create a simple web application framework which you can adapt for almost any purpose - all this with only basic PHP and MySQL knowledge.

In Part 1 of How To: Code Your First Web App, I covered the basics of setting up a MySQL database, connecting to it with PHP and then I introduced a few functions to create and manage users. At the end, I briefly went into setting up the header file which will be used with every file created from here on out. The next step is creating the main files that actually do things.

Cross-Domain Ajax with symfony

in PHP added by goodphptutorials, on 28/11/2008 AJAX advanced tutorials framework symfony

I recently released a new symfony plug-in, called sfWebBrowser. It's a lightweight HTTP client written in PHP, that doesn't require any additional module to work, and it opens a lot of interesting possibilities. As a matter of fact, it doesn't even require symfony to work - you can use it on any application, with any framework. Refer to its wiki page for installation instructions.

Towards RESTful PHP - 5 Basic Tips

in PHP added by goodphptutorials, on 11/12/2008 curl framework restful

As we entered a programmable web of applications with APIs the decision to ignore HTTP gave us problems we're still dealing with today. We have an Internet full of applications with different interfaces (GET /user/1/delete vs. POST /user/delete {id=1}). With REST we can say /user/1 is a resource and use the HTTP DELETE verb to delete it.

PHP Framework Comparison

in PHP added by goodphptutorials, on 30/7/2009 Zend cakephp codeigniter framework

Yes this is yet another PHP Framework comparison. A few months back I was trying to decide which PHP framework to use on a project. I wanted to use a currently popular framework because that way I would get the best support from the devoted contributors and users. Choosing a popular or active project is important when dealing with open source tools.

Playing with Zend_Navigation and routes

in PHP added by goodphptutorials, on 10/8/2009 Zend advanced tutorials framework routes

I wanted to set up routes in such way that when a user requests a page, all requests for non-existing controllers/modules are directed to a specific controller (not the error controller). In other words, if we have controllers IndexController, FooController and PageController, anything but http://example.com/index and http://example.com/foo is directed to the PageController.

Adding Custom Panels to the CakePHP Status Plugin

in PHP added by goodphptutorials, on 11/8/2009 cakephp framework plugin status

There are two different ways to add a panel '" using requestAction or Ajax. The general rule is if the panel is pretty fast to load and content is static use requestAction. If the panel takes some time or you want to be able to interact with it then use Ajax. For example, the logs panel uses requestAction since it's pretty quick to grab the log entries and you really don't need to interact with them. The Google Analytics panel, on the other hand, takes a few seconds to query the API and has options to change the timeframe, so it uses Ajax.

Why PHP Frameworks Matter

in PHP added by goodphptutorials, on 13/8/2009 frameworks oo programming php5

n a 1998 interview with Dr. Dobb’s Magazine, creator of the Perl programming language Larry Wall concluded his answer to the final question with a tip I’ve never forgotten, remarking, “Take a good look at what you want to do, and try to come up with the long-term lazy way, not the short-term lazy way.” [1] To paraphrase another Larry Wall-ism, in the programming world “laziness is indeed a virtue”, and if you’re not a lazy programmer, then frankly you’re not trying hard enough.

Writing an easy to use A/B test helper with CakePHP and jQuery

in PHP added by goodphptutorials, on 1/11/2009 ab test advanced tutorials cakephp framework jquery metrics

Knowing what is driving the user experience is key to the success of an application. Subtle changes in the interface can cause dramatic shifts in user behavior. Here, A/B tests display two (or more) language choices or color choices to a user (any HTML). Metrics are measured in two ways - 1) did the user click on the button at all and 2) how long did it take them to find it from the moment the page has started loading?

Zend Framework on a shared host

in PHP added by goodphptutorials, on 10/1/2010 framework oo programming php5 zend framework

When you deploy a Zend Framework website to a shared host, you usually cannot change the DocumentRoot to point at the public/ folder of the website. As a result the URL to the website is now http://www.example.com/public/. This doesn't look very professional, so we'd like to remove it. The easiest way, given a ZF project created using Zend_Tool.
