438. Notable PHP package: CakePHP 2.x Container

Posted on: 2016-08-23

Dependency injection is design pattern often used implement functionality on one class using objects from external classes without hardcoding the dependency between the two classes.

Several PHP frameworks implement their own dependency injection containers but since each one implements it in a different way, a generic container interface was defined to allow to call components of one framework to be called from by components of any other framework.

The package implements a component with the generic dependency injection container interface so application services and other types of applications not based on CakePHP can be easily used with CakePHP.

436. Notable PHP package: PHP UDP Hole Punching

Posted on: 2016-08-19

When you want to connect to a remote machine that is connected to a group of peers but you do not know its address, one common solution is to connect to central server and ask the addresses of the peers to communicate with them.

This technique is used by NAT servers (Network Address Translators) that are often running on router machines in order to route requests to remote machines from local network computers.

This process is called hole punching because it uses an intermediary server to get the addresses of the remote machines, so the client can communicate with them.

This PHP package implements a server with one class that can keeps the list of connected client machines and returns the list of peer addresses and ports.

The client class connects to the server class to get the peer machine address list, so it can send messages to them using UDP packets.

Google is the most popular search engine. Being well ranked on Google is important for many sites to get nice organic traffic.

Many sites try to serve content for Google crawler bots as fast as possible, so that increases the chances of the sites pages to rank well.

Posted on: 2016-08-10

Sometimes it is necessary to verify if the files of a site on the server are up to date and were not changed eventually by an attacker that took advantage of a security hole.

There are some solutions that compute hashes of all the files in the server but they do not tell whether the files different because they are not up to date with the latest development version or were changed eventually due to a security attack.

This class provides a solution that uses a different approach. It calls a script on the server that lists the existing files.

This way it can compare list of files on the production and the development environments, or even compare the files installed on different production or testing servers.
