WebReference.com:
User Personalization with PHP Beginning the Application
February 26, 2009 @ 08:44:25

WebReference.com has kicked off a new series of tutorials today with this first part of their look at building a personalization system as a part of a bookmarking system.

In this tutorial we will build an online bookmark system. This will be used to create a database for storing all our URL's and their descriptions. There are many commercial and non-commercial applications that offer almost the exact functionality that we will create in our application; the difference is that we have full control over our application, allowing us to tweak it to suit our needs.

The application lets users login/logout, manage bookmarks, gives recommendations based on those bookmarks, show some news headlines and, most importantly, the user must be able to personalize their interface with a custom color scheme and image of their choosing.

This first part gets up to the point of creating the databases (a bookmarks and users tables) and creating the basic template wrapper for the entire site.

WebMonkey:
A Truly del.icio.us API
February 15, 2008 @ 13:04:10

On the WebMonkey site today, there's a new tutorial that looks at one of the most "pervasive" sites to come along in a long time, del.icio.us and how to interact with it's API via PHP.

Who's that with the catchy URL that's getting all the clicks?

Why, it's del.icio.us! No matter where you are on the "Web 2.0" lash or backlash, the pervasive influence of this little bookmark aggregator can't be denied.

The site offers a myriad ways of accessing its database, from HTML and RSS feeds, to JSON data, to browser integration of various types. Let's take a look at the public API, which offers flexible and easy access to del.icio.us.

In his example, he creates a script that, given the contents of an email message, filters out the URL, breaks it into its parts and sends it off to the del.icio.us API to be bookmarked under his account.

Del.icio.us Switches to Symfony
October 03, 2007 @ 09:36:00

In a note that I'm sure the Symfony project is happy to hear, James McGlinn shares the fact that del.icio.us has made the move to use the Symfony framework on their site:

The preview of the new version of hugely popular web 2.0 social bookmarking site del.icio.us has been available (to invited users) for a few weeks now. In the news this morning Yahoo! have confirmed that del.icio.us was rebuilt using the Symfony framework.

The official announcement mentions Yahoo's reasons for the move (including the great documentation and the active community) and their joy at having their framework being put into wide-spread, commercial use.
