Matthew Weier O'Phinney:
PSR-7 is in Voting Stage!
March 20, 2015 @ 11:19:03

As Matthew Weier O'Phinney has posted, the PSR-7 PHP-FIG proposal is in the voting stages. The PSR-7 standard defines a unified interface for working with HTTP requests and responses.

As of a short bit ago, PSR-7 (meta) - HTTP Message Interfaces - is now in the voting phase! If you are a voting member of PHP-FIG, I urge you to read the specification and meta document now, and cast your vote accordingly.

I have written previously on the need for HTTP message abstractions, and also detailed how PSR-7 works. Those posts are still valid (I've kept the latter updated with all changes!). Since the review period, my sponsors and I have been looking over feedback and comments to see if any changes were needed. Fortunately, we've not found any substantive changes were really necessary; we have, however, made a few clarifications.

He clarifies some things around:

  • why base path concerns are not represented in the ServerRequestInterface or UriInterface
  • a note that UriInterface::getPath() MUST return the string "/" if the path is empty
  • that UriInterface implementations MUST percent-encode reserved characters in paths and query strings, per RFC 3986
  • why StreamableInterface is mutable, and provided guidelines to implementors and consumers regarding how and when to use writable streams
  • the addition of several sections to the meta documentation detailing solutions to common stream-based concerns

He also gets into a bit more detail about streams, base paths and some of the overall outcomes if the PSR-7 proposal passes (which it looks like it will so far).

If you adopt PSR-7, will you need to change your code? Almost certainly. The goal of PHP-FIG is to improve interoperability between projects, and PSRs typically attempt this via codification of what member projects are already doing.

Rich Zygler's Blog:
Is Microsoft buying Facebook a good thing for PHP?
October 30, 2007 @ 09:32:00

Rich Zygler asks in one of his recent blog posts, if Microsoft purchasing a 240 million dollar chunk of Facebook is a good thing for the language it's written in - PHP.

Microsoft is buying a piece of Facebook. What do we all think this means for PHP since Facebook is one of the "web 2.0" leaders built on PHP? The way I see it, [there] are [six] options.

Among the possible outcomes he lists are things like Microsoft rewriting the site, Facebook continues as it is or (next to impossible) Microsoft sees the error of its ways and fully embraces open source.
