PHP_CodeBrowser Release version 0.1.0

Mayflower is proud to announce the release of the open source tool PHP_CodeBrowser in the current version 0.1.0-alpha.

What is PHP_CodeBrowser

PHP_CodeBrowser is a tool mainly intended to be used in conjunction with CruiseControl.
It provides a code browser for PHP files with syntax highlighting and colored error-sections
found by quality assurance tools like PHPUnit or PHP_CodeSniffer.
The visualisation of errors, warnings or notices, found by above mentioned kind of tools,
is the real power of PHP_CodeBrowser.
You may also use PHP_CodeBrowser as a stand alone version, but therefore you would need previous generated XML error files.

Integration in phpUnderControl

PHP_CodeBrowser features

PHP_CodeBrowser comes along with syntax highlighting, colored error sections and a smart clickable error overview.
Supported are XML report files generated from following supported quality assurance tools:

  1. PHPUnit
  2. CPD
  3. Padawan
  4. CodeSniffer

Colored error sections

Why should you use it

Because it’s cool, and it helps strongly getting an complete overview over your code quality in single files.

Clickable error list overview


If you would like to try out, please check out source directly from SVN:

svn co svn:// PHP_CodeBrowser

or use pear installation routine:

pear config-set preferred_state alpha
pear channel-discover
pear install –alldeps phpunit/PHP_CodeBrowser

For the integration in cruisecontrol, please have a look at the README file,
or use the current version of phpUnderControl.

PHP 5.3 BBQ Release Party Munich

The PHP 5.3 BBQ Release Party in Munich, that took place on Friday the 17th of July 2009 at the Waldwirtschaft has been a complete success.
About 100 PHP enthusiasts joined this event and were celebrating and used this event for further communications or exchanging experiences.
The sunny weather from the afternoon unfortunatelly turned into to a small hurricane at night, but the drenches could not ruin the mood – the BBQ just moved to the nearby
tent and everybody enjoyed their meal, a buffet with salad, grilled meat, three barrels of beer and two awesome suckling pigs.

A small quiz with questions around the new php version were greatly appreciated, participants were awarded with a special PHP 5.3 Release BBQ T-shirt.

Special regards again to the sponsors Mayflower, Microsoft, Swoodoo und Zend, for making this event possible and to the supporters and several helpers of course, too.

FTP via Proxy with cURL

There should be no problem to download files dynamically via FTP and user/password authentication. But what if using an http proxy in between?
Well, there are some useful options you may set with curl_set_option but in our case most were not accepted.
The main problem was getting the list of files laying on the ftp server. Ok, lets take a look at the solution.
