Symfony Blog:
Testing minimal versions of Symfony requirements
December 17, 2014 @ 12:02:47

On the Symfony blog today there's a quick tip from Nicolas Grekas about using Composer to install a Symfony2 project and the definition of minimum version requirements.

Setting up Composer package versions for complex projects is not an easy task. For starters, there are a lot of different ways to define package versions. Then, you must check that declared package versions really work when installing or updating the project, specially for the minimal versions configured. In order to improve testing the minimal versions of Symfony Components requirements, Composer now includes two new options: prefer-lowest and prefer-stable. [...] Thanks to these two new options, it's really easy to check whether your project really works for the minimal package versions declared by it.

He includes definitions of what impact each of the options has on the packages Composer installs and the work that's been done recently to define the correct package versions for the 2.3, 2.5 and 2.6 branches of Symfony. He also offers some steps to follow in your own projects to ensure that the "prefer-lowest" packages installed work correctly.

NetTuts.com:
Integrate Bitcoin Payment Gateway Into OpenCart Part 1
December 17, 2014 @ 10:46:50

On the NetTuts.com site today they've posted the first part of a series showing the integration of the BitPay bitcoin payment service into an OpenCart instance. In this first part they focus on getting some of the initial setup and administration handling set up.

In this series, we are going to look at building a Bitcoin payment system into our installation of OpenCart. Before we get started, I recommend that you practice the basic OpenCart module development if you are not familiar with how to build your own modules. Once done, you should have enough knowledge to continue with developing more advanced modules. In this series, that's exactly what we aim to do.

They start by having you download the BitPay API library and dropping it into the root directory of your OpenCart installation. Next they show you how to create an "Admin" controller with the data you'll need to pass into the view including data pulled from a model. They also create the admin view showing the current orders using bitcoin as payment, their status and options to change the speed of the API requests, status and toggling test mode on and off. Finally they include the code to save the results of the admin form submission and a bit of validation around user permissions and API key validity.

Sameer Borate:
Integrating Googles new reCAPTCHA in PHP
December 17, 2014 @ 09:23:10

Recently Google announced their reCAPTCHA without a CAPTCHA technology to help make preventing automated systems (usually spammers) from causing issues in your applications. In this new post from Sameer Borate, he shows you how to implement this new kind of CAPTCHA in your PHP-based application.

For the past several years Google's reCAPTCHA has helped verify that a user is not a bot by forcing you to decipher warped text. reCAPTCHA's method of protecting websites from spam has always been a kind of burden on the end user who has to solve the captcha to prove that he is human and not a bot. [...] Google recently released a new captcha API called "No CAPTCHA" reCAPTCHA, which utilizes an Advanced Risk Analysis engine that is capable of discerning between users and bots. So instead of solving a jumbled box of text all a user has to do is check a box.

He walks you through the full process of the integration:

  • Signing up for an account/API keys
  • Rendering the HTML for the actual widget (using Google Javascript)
  • Validating the user's response via an API call
  • The PHP you'll need to perform the validation

He also briefly mentions some of the customization available and provides the code as a download so you can see it all working together.

SitePoint PHP Blog:
AngularJS in Drupal Apps
December 16, 2014 @ 12:23:31

On the SitePoint PHP blog there's a new tutorial posted (by Daniel Sipos) about combining Drupal and AngularJS to make for more front-end focused, responsive applications.

Angular.js is the hot new thing right now for designing applications in the client. Well, it's not so new anymore but is sure as hell still hot, especially now that it's being used and backed by Google. It takes the idea of a JavaScript framework to a whole new level and provides a great basis for developing rich and dynamic apps that can run in the browser or as hybrid mobile apps. In this article I am going to show you a neat little way of using some of its magic within a Drupal 7 site. A simple piece of functionality but one that is enough to demonstrate how powerful Angular.js is and the potential use cases even within heavy server-side PHP frameworks such as Drupal.

He walks you through the creation of a simple addition of a block that lists out the titles of some other nodes. You'll need an existing Drupal installation to follow along (no setup instructions here) as well as an Angular structure for a small application. He starts with the module configuration and creates custom handling to return the JSON result back to the waiting JS connection. Then he creates the custom template and block that the AngularJS will output the results too. Finally, with that rendering, he glues them both together in an Angular controller that loads the results when an "Open" button is clicked.
