DevShed:
An Object-based Approach to HTTP Compression in PHP
April 17, 2006 @ 13:06:46

DevShed has posted part two of their series on speeding up your page load times with HTTP compression, this time looking at a more object-oriented approach to handling the data you want to compress.

Over the first tutorial of this series, I developed some hands-on examples, aimed at illustrating how "Gzip" encoding can be used within PHP scripts to compress the output generated by dynamic PHP pages. After transferring the encoded data to the client, contents are uncompressed and finally displayed on the browser.

By the end of this article, you should have the appropriate knowledge for building a simple data compressor class, in addition to using HTTP compression for reducing the download time of object-generated web pages.

They start with the creation of a simple data compression class, with functions to see if the browser supports gzip encoding and to get/send/compress the actual data. With the sample class created, they put it to the test with a more real-world example - echoing out user information from a MySQL database.
