CodeIgniter Wiki Moved
July 06, 2012 @ 08:15:19

As is mentioned in this new post to the CodeIgniter project's main site, their wiki has made a move. You can now find it on github.

In addition to having the convenience of existing as a git repo itself, moving this content to GitHub will help distinguish EllisLab and Reactor created content from community managed resources. It will also reduce the attraction of spammers to the CodeIgniter.com web site, as the wiki was a common location used by spammers and vandals to get content on our site that was less likely to be found and moderated than the frequently visited forums.

You can make changes if you see something incorrect by cloning the repo and making changes to the wiki repo and putting in a pull request.

DZone.com:
Social Comparison of PHP Frameworks
December 23, 2011 @ 09:56:32

In this post to DZone.com today, John Esposito points out a site that compares popular PHP frameworks socially, a collaborative resource to keep track of things like framework features, popularity and their last update.

There's this wiki-ish comparison of PHP frameworks from socialcompare.com -- presently incomplete, but already containing quite a few frameworks and interesting details of each. You can add comparison criteria (rows; folksonomically) or update existing criteria -- which currently include, among other details, ORM specifics, cache storage, template system, and testing libraries.

Frameworks currently covered include Zend Framework, CakePHP, Fat-Free, Symfony, Yii and Kohana. As it stands now, Yii is the most popular framework with 8 votes and Symfony and Zend Framework are tied for second with 5 points each.

Kohana 3.1 Wiki Tutorial
May 09, 2011 @ 12:26:13

On the Query7.com blog today Logan shows you how to create a simple wiki with the help of the Kohana framework, a HMVC PHP5 framework that includes several tools (including UTF-8 suport and a cascading filesystem) to make a developer's life easier.

In this tutorial you will learn how to create a simple wiki using the PHP framework Kohana version 3.1. Several years ago Siddharta Govindaraj created a screencast demonstrating how to create a wiki using Django, this is essentially the Kohana version of that. It covers using Kohana's Routing, ORM and MVC systems. Full source code of the application is available on github.

You'll need to be at least a bit familiar with the framework to follow along, but he takes it step-by-step to be sure things are easy to follow. He shows the configuration changes you'll need to make to the boostrap and the database configuration. He shows you the creation of a model and the SQL to match as well as the routing change for the new addition. Views are next on the list, then the controller - all with full code included.

PHP.net:
Security Notice (wiki.php.net)
March 23, 2011 @ 10:43:05

On PHP.net there's a quick security advisory for those that didn't see the news - the wiki.php.net machine was compromised but has been wiped and all accounts reset and requiring a password reset.

The wiki.php.net box was compromised and the attackers were able to collect wiki account credentials. No other machines in the php.net infrastructure appear to have been affected. Our biggest concern is, of course, the integrity of our source code. We did an extensive code audit and looked at every commit since 5.3.5 to make sure that no stolen accounts were used to inject anything malicious. Nothing was found. The compromised machine has been wiped and we are forcing a password change for all svn accounts.

The issue was caused by a combination of a problem with the wiki software and a Linux root exploit. The Register has additional comments about the issue and outage.

Lukas Smith's Blog:
Wanna help out on wiki.php.net?
January 19, 2010 @ 09:21:03

Want to help out on the PHP project but not sure where to start? Lukas Smith suggests helping out with the wiki (at wiki.php.net).

I feel that I can make more of a difference in these other [personal] projects. [...] I hope others will pick up the slack and make sure that PDO gets love, at people diligently follow up on todo items mentioned on internals and that someone else picks up wiki.php.net and takes care of some regular maintenance stuff.

He mentions one thing specifically - an update that will need to happen to the Dokuwiki software the wiki runs on. If you're interested, send Lukas an email/leave a comment and he'll point you in the right direction.

New PHP Oracle FAQ Wiki
April 08, 2009 @ 12:05:05

Chris Jones has pointed out a new wiki page that's been set up as a more centralized resource for frequently asked questions about PHP and Oracle.

I've updated the old Oracle PHP FAQ and the Oracle PHP Troubleshooting FAQs that were hosted by Oracle Technology Network (OTN). We've redirected the old FAQ pages to a new wiki page: http://wiki.oracle.com/page/PHP+Oracle+FAQ with the updated content. Feel free to create an account and make updates. Hosting the FAQ on a wiki seems appropriate because PHP is open source and grows by the value of everyone's contributions.

Questions so far include some of the basics (connecting, querying, etc) and a few more complicated issues like pre-fetching, LOBS and new information for using the Zend Server to connect to your Oracle databases.

David Coallier's Blog:
PHP GSoC 2009 is coming!
March 10, 2009 @ 09:33:22

Its about that time again and David Coallier has pointed it out - the Google Summer of Code is not far off and PHP will be right in the middle again!

Once again we are happy to announce that PHP will be taking part in the Google Summer of Code. Already with a list of more than interesting and intelligent ideas, we are looking to get more ideas. This of course means that PEAR Developers, PECL Developers and PHP(Core) Developers now have to cook some ideas up and submit them to the GSoC 2009 PHP Wiki so we can have more good ideas for students to apply to!

There's already a few things about this year's GSoC that have been posted - the page on the PHP.net wiki, a mailing list announcement on the PEAR dev list and, of course, the official GSoC page.

NetBeans Blog:
Selenium plugin for PHP
March 09, 2009 @ 09:36:31

A quick new post to the NetBeans blog today points out the support for Selenium in the IDE. The NetBeans wiki has more information:

Before trying Selenium in PHP be sure to have PHPUnit and Selenium_Testing packages installed. The recommended way to install both is using PEAR.

The wiki page guides you through the creation of a simple testing setup complete with screenshots of the interface the whole way through. The plugin page has more details on running the tests.

Online resources for Zend Framework
March 04, 2009 @ 07:51:39

Robert Basic has put together an ever growing list of tutorials and other resources related to the Zend Framework (including several Twitter users to follow).

Besides the official documentation and the Quickstart, there are many useful resources for Zend Framework, like blogs and Twitter. I did my best to collect them. If you know something that's not listed here, but should be, please leave a comment and I'll update the post.

He has three categories right now - blogs of well-known developers of the framework and outspoken proponents of it, Twitter users you can follow that talk about/might help with issues that could come up and some of the books that have been published on the topic. There's also an "Other" category with mentions of IRC channels, the ZF wiki and the ZF forum.

Zoe Slattery's Blog:
PHP TestFest 2009
February 02, 2009 @ 08:44:54

Its that time of year again - time to get the ball rolling for this year's PHP TestFest. Zoe Slattery has kicked things off with a new post for today.

It's time to start getting the 2009 PHP TestFest underway. The TestFest is a worldwide event in which PHP user groups and individuals contribute to PHP by writing tests for PHP. It's a great way to contribute to one of the most successful open source projects there has ever been, it's also pretty cool to see your name in the the source distribution for code that's running on over 20 million web domains.

If you're a user group (or really just want to participate), send an email over to the PHP qa list (php-qa@lists.php.net) with your preferred date and a primary contact for the group. The groups/people will then be listed over on the PHP wiki so you can check to see if there's others in your area already participating.

Things are just getting organized, but there's already a few things in the works - a SVN repository where participants can commit tests directly (instead of funneling them all through a few people like before), some sponsors (maybe elePHPants!) and the search for mentors to help out those writing tests and can do the final review/commit of the user-submitted tests.

More event and contact information can be found near the end of her post.
