510. Notable PHP package: PHP.ini Settings

Posted on:

PHP uses a php.ini file to read values that configures many aspects of the way PHP code works.

If you change one configuration value but set it to an incorrect type, PHP may not work as you expect and you may take a long time to figure what you did wrong.

The class provides a solution that can not only read and change php.ini settings, but it also can verify if you are setting those values to the correct types that PHP is expecting.

It uses a knowledge base file that contains the types of values that PHP expects for most of the configuration settings, so it can validate all the values and tell you if you set any values incorrectly.

508. Notable PHP package: PHP Secure Chat

Posted on:

When you want to implement a chat system between users of your application or site, there is always the concern that the messages may be viewed by people that manage the site, or even by spies and secret services because messages may have to be stored in the server before delivering them to the other users in the chat.

One way to avoid this problem is to implement end to end cryptography. This means that messages are encrypted before sent from the origin user and only decrypted by the destination users.

This package provides a solution to implement such approach in PHP. It uses some JavaScript to encrypt messages before sending from the origin user browser using the Blowfish algorithm.

It uses a secret key that only the origin and destination users know about. This way messages may be securely stored on the server database to be able to deliver to the recipient later when he is not online, without the risk of a third party viewing the messages without knowing the secret password.
