PHP on the D-Bus

in PHP added by CalEvans, on 10/11/2009 advanced tutorials oo programming php5 podcast

The D-BUS Inter Process Communication mechanism is the basis for many system-related functionality on Linux-based systems. Both GNOME, KDE, as well as the Open Moko Linux computing platform use it extensively for everything related to talking to services and hardware. Skype, as well as other applications, provide D-BUS APIs as well. In this presentation I will be presenting a PHP/D-BUS integration to allow PHP to talk to D-BUS aware applications. I will demonstrate controlling Skype from PHP, as well as the implementation of PHP-GTK based applications on the OpenMoko to talk to, and use the different hardware services it offers, such as GSM and GPS. This talk should show a few things that people don’t really associate PHP with, and thus provide some insight that PHP’s strength is not only on the Web.

Playing with Zend_Navigation and routes

in PHP added by goodphptutorials, on 10/8/2009 Zend advanced tutorials framework routes

I wanted to set up routes in such way that when a user requests a page, all requests for non-existing controllers/modules are directed to a specific controller (not the error controller). In other words, if we have controllers IndexController, FooController and PageController, anything but http://example.com/index and http://example.com/foo is directed to the PageController.

Tips for working with Zend_Search_Lucene

in PHP added by goodphptutorials, on 10/3/2010 Zend advanced tutorials framework lucene search

A common misstep for a developer who is implementing Lucene for the first time is to stuff an overabundance of data inside it, reducing performance. For someone who doesn't have a background in natural language processing or information retrieval, some data normalization steps may not come naturally. This post specifically regards Zend_Search_Lucene, but much of my advice can be abstracted across various languages to other Lucene ports, such as Lucene.NET.
