PHP, Arduino And… Minecraft? Combining Minecraft with PHP!
Jul 07, 2016 @ 13:35:15

On the SitePoint PHP blog author Christopher Pitt has a new tutorial posted about combining PHP, Arduino and Minecraft and combine the physical and software worlds in an interesting IoT combination.

Some of the most interesting programming I’ve done has been in Minecraft. It’s an open-world, sandbox game developed by Mojang, (recently acquired by Microsoft). Minecraft began as a canvas for creative expression, and while I do very different things in it these days, it still is that for me.

I’m going to take you on a journey, as we build a Minecraft mansion, and then secure it with a real-world alarm system. There’s quite a bit of ground to cover, and though I plan for this to be a two-part series, I’m going to have to leave some of the tangential details for you to discover!

For those not familiar with "programming" in Minecraft (not the backend language, but using things like redstone) he gives a brief introduction. He then sets up the situation - the creation of a "sprawling mansion" in your Minecraft world and a need to secure the front door. He includes the command to set up the "door open" test on a command block. He then shows how to hook this into a loop to continuously test if a door is open or not. With this open/closed door check system in place he then brings PHP into the mix, having it check log files for the "whispers" when the door actions happen. He then creates a watcher for these events and has it respond with a chat message back to the user. That's all in this tutorial but a future part of the series will add on the physical aspect - the Arduino.

PHP Security and SABSA
Feb 01, 2006 @ 06:41:59

In his latest post, Chris Shiflett links to more information from Andrew van der Stock about his proposed PHP security architecture.

Andrew van der Stock has started providing more details about a proposed security architecture for PHP, beginning with the SABSA (Sherwood Applied Business Security Architecture) approach. This approach is broken down into layers:

  • Contextual
  • Conceptual
  • Logical
  • Physical
  • Component
He describes each of these layers and how they relate to PHP, and he also hints that more details are coming.

Andrew's post, a follow-up from previous posts, maps out the structure above visually, and provides this link to a book published dealing with a business-driven security approach...
