PSR-Duh!
Apr 12, 2013 @ 10:46:26

On NetTuts.com today there's a post that talks about applying the PSR formatting to your application's code. If you haven't already read their introduction to the PSRs, it's highly suggested.

In a previous lesson here on Nettuts+, you learn about PSR; however, that article didn’t detail the process of integrating that coding style into your projects. Let’s fix that!

They briefly recap the main two PSRs (PSR-1 and PSR-2, but no mention of PSR-3 the logging interface) and show code examples of them being applied. They also point to the PHP_CodeSniffer tool that you can use to keep your code in the correct structure. Instructions are included to install it specifically for the Sublime Text 2 editor via package control. It's just a command-line tool, though, so it could be integrated with just about any other editor/IDE out there too.

The Twelve-Factor App Applied to PHP
Nov 30, 2011 @ 10:14:49

Recently a site called The Twelve Factor App surfaced as a guideline for web applications to be at their best. Bradley Holt has taken these suggestions and has applied them to PHP applications in a few quick comments to each point.

If you develop web apps, I encourage you to check out The Twelve-Factor App. This is an excellent resource for anyone building and deploying software-as-a-service. PHP has great support for many of the twelve-factors. I want to take a look at specifically how each factor may be applied to a PHP application.

Some of the points the Twelve-Factor App makes aren't entirely relevant to PHP (like "Backing Services") but Bradley gets into details on others, providing technology that can be used to fill the need.

Image fun with PHP - part 2
Nov 13, 2007 @ 12:56:00

SToyan Stefanov has posted some examples of what sort of output can be made with the imagefilter function in PHP.

Here's the list of filters he applies:

  • Brightness
  • Grayscale
  • Contrast
  • Colorize
  • Edge Detect
  • Emboss
  • Gaussian Blur
  • Selective Blur
  • Mean Removal
  • Smooth
  • Negate

And, as a sort of a bonus, he includes a lazy way to make your image look like it's sepia toned.
