Need to use require.js to load a bunch of scripts compiled via assetic into a PHP file, annoyed by auto-append of .js, don’t want to set up irritating routing? Add a ? to the URL, require.js will add a .js to the query string, loading the file correctly.
Turns out that performing a GET request on a data URI from PHP works if file_get_contents is used, not if cURL is used. I wonder what support is like for other server side languages — using data URIs in
with could be the basis of some interesting #webactions.

Every now and again the otherwise banal PHP docs make me laugh.
Finally decided that symfony Security component is way too complicated for my little #taproot, so ditching it — but I’ve learnt a lot from digging through it and my further efforts will try to provide some of the amazing flexibility it gives whilst being more performant and easier to understand #php #dev #meta

Ha, love it Aral Balkan :)
aral hideous. That makes me more embarrassed to be a PHP dev than all the bad rep it has as a language. And they're teaching SVN! It gets worse :(
I love that #php now has shiny namespacing and a thriving code sharing community, but I think the heavily hierarchical namespacing practises used by some of the community (e.g. symfony components) are unhealthy.
They are difficult to memorise, relying on (often slow) IDE autocomplete, and encourage a
use statement for each class. That’s pretty much a scoped equivalent of
from x import * in python — not a good practise! It’s still namespace pollution, it just takes longer to write.
I am trying to use a more python–like, package-centred approach with much fewer subnamespaces. The outcome of this should be that you
use the package name:
…and then using all the classes/subnamespaces from that root, e.g:
$t = Posse\Helpers::convertHtmlToTwitterFormat($s);
