Foundations of Pear Authentication
January 26, 2007 @ 08:37:00

PHPBuilder.com has posted a new article (an excerpt from the "Foundations of PEAR" book from APress) focusing on the authentication aspect and components PEAR has to offer.

After all, nearly all authentication is identical in its basic functionality, and there's usually no good reason to spin off your own code if it's already written for you.

They talk about three packages - the Auth package, Auth_HTTP, and the Auth_PrefManager. They describe the Auth package in depth in this article - common uses, related packages, required packages, what the constructor is like and descriptions of the functions the package provides.

DevShed:
Setting up the Foundation for an Extensible Website Engine with PHP 5
October 24, 2006 @ 09:46:00

DevShed starts up another series, a pair of tutorials seeking to help you create an extensible website engine in PHP 5. Basically, a slightly more complex setup than just pulling the content from a database into your application.

Over the course of this two-part series, I'll walk you through the development of a highly extensible and "pluggable" website engine with PHP 5, which will allow you generate web pages on the fly based on a predefined (but simple) database structure.

They start things off by setting up the core of the system - the layout and structure of how the pages will flow. To help make this an easy task, they also create the simple template with links down the side to the different "pages". Finally, they finish off this part of the series with the database structure and push some of the sample content in to give you an idea of how it's all formatted.

Rami Kayyali's Blog:
LAMP's Standing Still
June 28, 2006 @ 06:10:23

Something's mentioned in this entry on Rami Kayyali's blog that no one in a community wants to hear - he gets the feeling that the PHP community is shrinking.

The PHP community is shrinking by the day, at least that's how I feel. I consider the community to consist of the extremely enthusiastic evangelists, those who make stuff instead of benchmarking them. We have a growing base of young developers who only need a small portion of PHP's capabilities and a shrinking base of developers who want to make things happen. We need chaos, not community rules. We need a CPAN, not a PEAR, a Smarty or a Zend Framework; these projects give me a feeling of being the "chosen" ones.

He preceeds this with a bit about his history with PHP, like how he used to feel when major updates were made. But somewhere along the line it got to be about something else - the debates between which was better (ASP vs. PHP, PHP vs. Java, etc), looking more at things like which quotes were faster, etc. Even the release of PHP5 couldn't make up for these community changes.

So, his suggestion is that we, as a community, stop worrying about if PHP is "enterprise ready" or competing with the wide array of other languages/environments out there and just get back to what PHP does best - getting back to its web development foundations where its real power lies.

Show-EZ Uses Same Software as United States Equestrian Federation
May 19, 2006 @ 09:41:17

As mentioned in this new post on the PHP Magazine website today, the United States Equestrian Federation has made a move on their site to an all PHP-based setup.

The United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) boasts almost 100,000 individual members, holds more than 2,700 member competitions, and has 100 affiliate organizations. All these records are managed in the USEF with PHP programming.

In the original press release it references, they also note that the Show-EZ system, which the horse entry section of the organization's site is based on, has only been around for a little while but has already proved itself invaluable. It even bosts the ability to be used via a Blackberry/Pocket PC/cellphone for the ultimate in mobility during shows.
