Unfortunately, sfFileCache doesn’t scale well on certain file systems as it puts all of it’s cached files in one location. This simple class adds support for hashing the directory name based on a the name of the item being cached. It wasn’t worth a plugin, so I’m pasting it here.
I recently needed to send the result of an action in symfony via email daily. E-mail has changed slightly in symfony 1.3/1.4 – here’s how I did it. I really don’t like my solution at all, the use of get_partial() from within a Task seems very wrong to me – but I’m in a rush so it will do for now, I’d love to hear feedback
I wanted to create a form that allowed me to dynamically add sub-forms via JS, without round-trips to the server. I had a bit of a google, but failed to find much of use – so I wrote my own. This article contains my code for a proof of concept, and a brief description of what it does. It is proof of concept, and done as an example, so code isn’t done perhaps as I might do in a real configuration, but I hope it provides help to others.
I’ve recently got a BeBook Mini, and thought I’d take a little time to upload some pictures and write a few words. Continue reading “The BeBook Mini”
Workflows are a useful tool to help manage business processes. In this post I take a look at the workflow engine of eZ components, which was developed by Sebastian Bergmann. In this post, I introduce the basics of the workflow engine, and will expand on it’s usage in future posts.
The headers Postini’s anti-spam system adds to emails are quite hard to filter on, as you need to compare part of one header to part of another. Here’s a little snipped that works with dovecot 1.2’s sieve implementation. I don’t actually use this myself anymore, but I’m posting it here for anyone else struggling with the problem.
Fabien has already introduced the symfony service container, and will be shortly releasing a post covering more of it. I was keen to get my hands dirty, so I’ve dived into the code and got a quick example working.
In a recent post about Symfony components – Fabien wrote about how the Symfony project (yes, that’s right – a capital S now!) will be releasing more and more components. In this post I introduce sfYaml, a YAML parser for PHP – building on my previous blog post about routing.
symfony 1.2 was quite an improvement over 1.0, one of the most important changes was improved decoupling between components. In this article we’re going to put this to the test and have some fun with sfRouting.
I’ve recently had the requirement to rate limit SOAP calls to a remote API, so having done the work I though I’d document it here.
