Re: Unit testing?

I still use SimpleTest. It might not be under development any more but it does everything you need (for now) and it does it well.

For testing your Javascript stuff I'd recommend QUnit.

PHPNE - New PHP User Group for NE England

Hey, It's horribly late notice, but if you're based in the North East of the England (the UK) there's a new PHP user group starting tonight (15/02/2011) at the Town Wall on Pink Lane. I didn't organise it, but I will be attending and banging the DevNetwork drum*. It'll be a regular thing I imagine s...

Re: saving category name into db instead of id number

Sorry, but no. You should be using the ID number instead of the name. That's the whole point of having the ID numbers. Actually, I don't agree. Using the text (aka a "natural language key") is preferable for things that don't change and that you'll always have to look up. There's little p...

Re: What makes a good programmer?

Yeah, this guy was a bit of an arse. He has a worldview that is in incapable of realizing there are situations and circumstance that are different then his.

Re: Is html5 local storage file exist or just in PC memory?

It's stored in a file, but I believe the location and type of file is entirely up to the browser developer. It could be a temporary file in the browser cache, or a permanent SQLlite database, or something in the OS temp cache... anything really. If you're worried about it disappearing when the user ...

Re: Should I do My WebApps In PHP?

Write your website in the language you know best, or the language that you want to get to know best. That's the only criteria (at the beginning). But understand that you'll need to know, or pay someone else to write, the following: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, SQL and either ASP or PHP (or Ruby, Erlang, T...

Re: [COLAB] Community Project

No one is really interested in my idea though... Sad. Everyone has a limited amount of time they can spend on things, and if your idea hasn't sparked their imagination enough to make them want to lend a hand that's a shame - but that doesn't mean the idea is bad or unoriginal or anything. Don't be ...

Re: [COLAB] Community Project

I can't tell if you're trying to do "Digg for forums", or something like what Vanilla does. http://vanillaforums.org/ Vanilla forums use a system of tags to group discussions together rather than the traditional categories system of phpBB etc.

Re: [COLAB] Community Project

my idea was almost stolen once before So what if someone steals your idea? If it's a good idea someone will steal it as soon as you release your first version. I can guarantee that. The only benefit you're getting by refusing to share it is a tiny headstart on the competition. What you're losing is...

Re: is there a way to stop a script if a client don't pay

It's easy on the face of it, but it's actually very difficult to do securely. $key = mktime(0,0,0,4,5,2011); echo $key; That's the key that you give the customer: "1301958000". Save that into key.txt and give it to the customer. $key = file_get_contents("key.txt"); if (mktime() >...

Comparing web pages

I have an idea for a side project that takes a URL and detects whether or not there's a mobile specific version of it. Essentially the idea is to grab a page using cURL with the User Agent string set to a mobile browser (eg iPhone) and see if there's any redirection to a mobile.domain.com or m.domai...

There's a class in PEAR called Text_LanguageDetect that does want you want. It works pretty well. http://pear.php.net/manual/en/package.t ... detect.php
