Zumba Fitness Engineering:
Using Application Events to Hook in Plugins
August 09, 2012 @ 09:23:37

In this recent post on the Zubma Fitness Engineering site, Chris Saylor looks at using events in your applications to hook in plugins to easily (and dynamically) enhance functionality.

In many instances, having a plugin system (even for closed-source applications) is a convenient and safe approach to adding functionality to a product. It minimizes risk by not having to modify the core of the source. In this article, I'll be discussing how we implemented a plugin system for our cart software to allow for plugins.

Its implemented a bit like the Observer design pattern - you "register" the listening event which can then be activated by a "trigger" method with the event's name. These events are stored in a registry (static) so they can be accessed across the application.

Wenbert Del Rosario's Blog:
Registering your custom plugins in Zend Framework 1.8
June 19, 2009 @ 11:14:25

Wenbert Del Rosario has a recent post to his blog today about using custom plugins in a Zend Framework application.

A few days ago, I managed to setup a project using the new command line tools. My project now had models, views and all the controllers that I needed. But then came the time when I had to setup my own custom plugins. [...] To register your own custom plugin in the new Zend Framework 1.8 release, go to you application.ini file found in the configs directory and add this [code to register the plugin on the front controller instance].

He includes an example of the settings needed for the application.ini, the location to put the plugin file in and a simple example of how the plugin would be coded.

PHPro.org:
SPL Autoload
November 14, 2008 @ 09:31:48

On the PHPro.org website, Kevin Waterson has written up an introduction to the handy autoloading functionality that comes with PHP5 releases - the __autoload method from the Standard PHP Library (SPL).

The SPL __autoload() method is one of the Magic Methods supplied in PHP. The __autoload method is called whenever a class is instantiated and will load the classs the the first time it is called. No longer is include(), require, include_once() or require_once needed as the SPL autoload takes care of this interally.

He looks at how you can use it to load a directory of classes, how to use multiple autoloads in a single script and how to use it with interfaces to register a loader and include it as needed.

DevShed:
Filters and Login Systems for Web Application Security
October 06, 2008 @ 13:43:15

DevShed continues their look at security in PHP applications in this third part of the series, a focus on filtering and login systems for your applications.

Any web site that is selective in the kind of users that it wants to grant access to will need some method of filtering. This filtering is usually done through a login system. This (and more) is what we will be building.

The site is made up of a few key components - login/logout pages, password management, a registration page and various configuration and settings files. They include everything you'll need, including the HTML and CSS to make things look exactly the same. The backend is driven off of a MySQL database to store the users and their account info.
