Downloading Gmail attachments in PHP - an update
July 29, 2014 @ 09:37:40

Sameer Borate has posted an update to a previous post of his about downloading attachments in PHP. In this new post he updates the script to remove any other dependencies other than the IMAP PHP extension.

As mentioned in the earlier post, automatically extracting attachments from Gmail can be important for reasons where you need to process the attached files periodically with a CRON job or need to process the files programmatically. Also it can be useful for automatically archiving important attachments. [The code in this post] is a simple proof-of-concept plain PHP code, devoid of any object-oriented features that extracts attachments from your Gmail account.

The example code makes a request to the Gmail IMAP servers with the given username and password, grabs the first set of emails, parses their attachments to pull them down to the local host. He also includes some searching capability to locate ones only matching certain criteria. A list of the allowed search keywords is also included. He finishes the post with a look at using READONLY mode and fetching the email headers.

PHPUnit Announced End of Life on PEAR Installation Method
April 21, 2014 @ 10:29:53

There's a new addition to the GitHub wiki that's quite important for the PHPUnit users out there. Sebastian Bergmann has officially announced the end of life for the PEAR version of the installer for the popular PHPUnit tool.

Since PHPUnit 3.7, released in the fall of 2012, using the PEAR Installer was no longer the only installation method for PHPUnit. Today most users of PHPUnit prefer to use a PHP Archive (PHAR) of PHPUnit or Composer to download and install PHPUnit. Starting with PHPUnit 4.0 the PEAR package of PHPUnit was merely a distribution mechanism for the PHP Archive (PHAR) and many of PHPUnit's dependencies were no longer released as PEAR packages. Furthermore, the PEAR installation method has been removed from the documentation. We are taking the next step in retiring the PEAR installation method with today's release of PHPUnit 3.7.35 and PHPUnit 4.0.17.

Included in this end of life, they'll also be decommissioning pear.phpunit.de to happen no later than the end of 2014.

SitePoint PHP Blog:
Selling Downloads with Stripe and Laravel
October 24, 2013 @ 12:17:30

On the SitePoint PHP blog there's a new tutorial posted showing you how to integrate Laravel and Stripe to make a simple system for selling downloads of software. Stripe is a developer friendly, easy to use payment system that helps you take and manage payments.

Digital goods are an increasingly valuable commodity. [...] In this article I'll show how you can implement a simple store selling digital goods using PHP along with Stripe, a payment provider who aims to make it easier than ever to take online payments since you don't need to set up special merchant accounts or deal with complex payment gateways.

He points you to the Stripe site to set up an account before getting started. With that in hand, They start in on the Laravel setup and project creation. He helps you make a "downloads" table to handle path to the file and price. Also included are the model for the Downloads and a "seeder" with some fixture data to work with. From there he shows how to make a simple home page and a "buy" page with a form for the payment information. The Stripe javascript library is then integrated and the response is handled. If it's a success, the user is then forwarded to another endpoint to download the file they paid for.

June 28, 2013 @ 11:57:59

On the Amazon AWS blog there's a recent post showing you how to sync data with S3 and handle multiple files quickly and easily.
