User Authentication with patUser (Part 3)
Jul 31, 2006 @ 06:24:13

WeberDev.com has posted part three of their "User Authentication With patUser" series today, detailing some of the aditional functionality the patUser package has to offer.

While the API for user and group management does form the core of the patUser library, it's not all there is on display. patUser also includes a number of utility functions that can come in handy for certain specialized tasks.

These functions include identifying users and groups by different criteria (such as name or email address); keeping track of the URLs visited by the user so as to generate a user trail; maintaining user account statistics for auditing purposes; and providing exception-handling routines for more graceful error handling.

They give the details on how to:

  • make exceptions,
  • track the user's history through the site,
  • perform a natural selection search on user data,
  • how to identify users,
  • record stats about the user's activities

With this tutorial they finish off the series, providing a good solid overview of the patUser package. If you're just now reading the series, be sure to check out part one and part two.

PHP-Tools Blog:
Date_Holidays - New releases
Apr 04, 2006 @ 06:55:13

Carsten Lucke has posted an update on the php-tools blog about a new release for their PEAR package Date_Holidays.

The past weekend Stephan spent some time to fix all filed bugs for Date_Holidays. The result was the release of version 0.15.2. Meanwhile I finally managed to install all the tools on my new MacBook I needed for PHP development.

As I coded a bit to test the features PHPEclipse offers I implemented a feature-request for Date_Holidays that allows to create drivers not only by a unique driver-id, but also by using an ISO3166 country code (i.e. "de" or "deu").

The post also mentions some of the tools that he's installed to do development work on this package, including PHPEclipse.

Blog.php-tools.net:
patError documentation available
Mar 08, 2006 @ 06:48:27

The PHP Tools Blog has posted an item about the availibility of the documentation for the newest of their packages, patError.

patError has been developed as we needed a simple tool to unify the error management in all our different projects such as patTemplate, patForms or patBBCode. Although we liked the error handling provided by PEAR, we did not want to use it, as we did not want to force our users to use PEAR in combination with our tools.

Still, we adopted several concepts from the PEAR error handling, so most of the uses who already have been familiar with PEAR were able to use patError without the need to learn a lot of new concepts.

The documentation is in wiki form to make for easier maintenance and was created to provide some much needed insight into how this integral class works.
