Derick Rethans' Blog:
Short URLs
February 22, 2011 @ 09:44:13

Derick Rethans has shared a method he's created for making short, descriptive URLs with the help of his translit PHP extension that translates non-latin characters into latin ones.

The URLs for my articles are automatically generated from the title. There is a little function that uses translit's transliterate() function to ASCII-ify the titles. [...] However, [this] is hardly a short URL. What we want is something short and descriptive. First of all, I thought it would work to generate short URLs automatically.

In hindsight, though, he decided it would just be better to come up with his own short URLs but he still wanted a way to use them. Registering a short domain helped and, along with some <link> tags, made it easier for the right information to be automatically found.

New VLD and translit releases
April 03, 2008 @ 11:17:42

Derick Rethans has posted about new versions of two PHP extensions with "very distinctive purposes" - VLD and translit.

VLD is for the "hardcore hackers" out there to see what's happening behind the scenes for each request made to PHP and the translit extension makes it easier to "transliterate" information into other formats (with filters like "normalize_numbers" and converting text to Chinese).

You can grab the updated version through the standard pecl interface or from their pages on the PECL site.
