I’ve had a few more articles and tutorials published in the past few days, with a number to come later this month. Here’s a quick run-down of the articles I’ve had published in the past couple of weeks.
An introduction to Flysystem, a PHP library which provides developers with a layer of abstraction over file storage systems including standard local files, online services such as Dropbox and Cloud Files and remote storage mechanisms such as FTP.
Here’s a sneak preview of what’s coming up.
I’ve written a huge four-part tutorial on using Apache SOLR along with Solarium, a PHP library which allows you to use SOLR as if it were a native search implementation. It’s due sometime around the end of April.
Kirby is a very simple, file-based CMS written in PHP. I’ve written a comprehensive review of it, which will be published in the next couple of weeks.
I’ve also written extensively on Piwik which is a self-hosted, open-sourced alternative to Google Analytics. If you’ve been concerned recently with Google and privacy, or simply want to take control of your analytics data, then it’s well worth a look.
I’ve also been doing some writing about Node, which I’ve been working with a lot lately. One upcoming article is about using JSON web tokens to secure an application, using examples written in Node with Express and Backbone for the server-side and client-side components respectively. I’ve also written an article on using streams in Node. Both articles should be published in the next few weeks.
Finally, I’ve also written a thorough review of Brackets, which is an open-sourced editor originally by Adobe.
Keep an eye out for these if they’re of any interest — I’ll be continually updating this page with the details.
