SitePoint PHP Blog:
How to Consume Laravel API with AngularJS
Feb 22, 2016 @ 11:23:10

The SitePoint PHP blog has posted a new tutorial from author Francesco Malatesta that continues their series looking at combining AngularJS and PHP, more specifically Laravel, to create a basic application. In this part of series he builds on the server-side code created in part one and creates the Angular frontend.

In part 1, we built our server part. Now we can build our client. We are going to use AngularJS to make a Single Page Application. We will use a very basic bootstrap template, built on the fly.

The application is simple enough and will consist of three "screens" (not "pages" since it's a single page application): a login, a signup and a main screen. He walks you through the setup of a standard frontend development environment including tools and software you'll need to get started. He makes the simple route and Blade template for the single-page app and defines some AngularJS routes for each of the screens. He then includes the code to set up both the signup and login controllers and how to detect if the user is successfully logged in. From there he gets into the functional part of the application: managing the books and the user's wishlist with the standard CRUD (create, read, update and delete) operations. Screenshots are also included at some spots so you can ensure your progress matches the tutorial.

Developer Tutorials Blog:
Easy Screen Scraping in PHP with the Simple HTML DOM Library
Aug 06, 2008 @ 08:40:15

On the Developer Tutorials blog today Akash Mehta looks at screen scraping using a simple DOM library to help make it easy.

In PHP, regular expressions tend to get rather messy, DOM calls can be confusing and verbose, and often the string functions just aren't enough. In this tutorial, I'll show you how to use the middle ground - the open source PHP Simple HTML DOM Parser library, which provides jQuery-grade awesomeness for easy screen scraping without messy regular expressions.

In his examples he shows how to grab the contents of a page (google.com), find and replace information in the HTML and perform a query on the data (like finding each of the news stories out of the front page of slashdot.org).

DevShed:
Working with CSS Styles and the Stage Pattern in PHP 5
Apr 25, 2007 @ 13:03:00

In the second part of their look at the Stage design pattern today, DevShed moves up from the previous article to implement a more "real world" example of the Stage pattern in action.

Essentially, what I plan to demonstrate here is how this pattern can be used to build different versions of a given web document on the fly, either for display on a typical computer monitor, or for printing.

This involves the creation of a class to define the styles for both sides - print and screen - and a class that will figure out which of these needs to be applied.

Pierre-Alain Joye's Blog:
Screen capture with PHP and GD
Apr 18, 2007 @ 07:53:00

In a new blog post today, Pierre-Alain Joye shows a method for doing a screen capture with just PHP and the GD functionality (an updated library, a DLL).

To get a snapshot of a HTML page, a window or a complete screen was always something tricky to do in PHP. For one of my current projects, I had to check that our changes did not affect visually any page. An easy way to achieve this goal is to compare the rendered pages in the browsers itself, easy and time consuming (for a human being :D).

That's why I finally sit down and implemented imagegrabscreen and imagegrabwindow . They capture respectively the whole screen or a window (using its handle).

He includes a few examples including grabbing a default screenshot, grabbing just the contents of a certain application (like Internet Explorer), and grabbing a fullscreened IE window too.
