CronTab on windows

dr_drsh Place - Wed, 19/01/2011 - 2:25pm
I have been trying to get windows to run a PHP script every minute using windows task scheduler, The GUI provided by windows is kinda complex and it just gave me the option to run daily or less frequently. Also, after I managed to get the task to run every minute, the task manager that [...]

Use is_null rather than == null

dr_drsh Place - Mon, 21/09/2009 - 9:10am
While playing with strings one should be VERY VERY VERY cautious when trying to check for a “null” value PHP has the bad habit of considering empty strings to be “null” and “false” , for instance 1 2 3 4 $foo = ''; if( $foo == null && $foo == false ){ echo "So PHP actually considers empty strings [...]

Accessing the first element in associative PHP array

dr_drsh Place - Wed, 05/08/2009 - 6:37pm
Accessing the first element in a php array can be done as easy as this $myArray[0] = 'foo'; and you can also use “list” to access more than one index in one call list( $first, $second, $third ) = $myArray; This approach , however, doesn’t work with associative arrays or arrays that have non-standard integer index like $stringIndexedArray = array('first' [...]

GSoC 2009

dr_drsh Place - Fri, 24/04/2009 - 7:46pm

My proposal for Google Summer of code 2009 has been accepted, I’ll be working for Joomla! this summer , My project will be “Workflow extension” for Joomla! 1.6

I’ll try to describe what I’m trying to accomplish to get as much feedback as possible before starting.

The workflow extension I’ll be working on will support the core content component and have the capacity to support other components.

I’ve just upgraded to WP 2.7, Now its time to port/adapt/change/modify my RTL-LTR code to 2.7

I also need to clean up my tags, add a few links here and there, modify the theme, lots of work it seems.

I like how 2.7 looks, Many thanks to everybody who’s contributed to this.

It’s been almost 5 month since my proposal for GSoC was accepted, I’ve learned alot in these concentrated 5 months about Mootools and J! 1.5 , I was introduced to many interesting people, Coping with College and GSoC was a bit challenging specially that I have classes during summer but things worked out well.

A few days ago I decided to suppress my “conservative” stance towards massive Javascript usage and started working on a WYSIWYG editor for HTML Forms, The application resembles drag-and-drop GUI editors, I’ve spent lot of time in building the codebase to make it as Object oriented as possible.

The codebase is simply composed of two parts, Core and pluginis “Elements”

Each draggable element is handled by a 2 files
