There are a lot of nice packages that we can use in our PHP-based projects and if you’re using Composer or GrumPHP, PHPCompatibility is one that I recommend including your projects especially if you’re writing code for something that’s going to run across multiple versions of PHP (that is, on hosts that offer different versions).
This is a set of sniffs for PHP CodeSniffer that checks for PHP cross-version compatibility. It will allow you to analyse your code for compatibility with higher and lower versions of PHP.
As I head into December of this year, this will be the final – and obviously the third – time I take off the social web for the remainder of the year. At least that’s the plan. I’m thinking of doing it a little bit differently this year.
For those of you who haven’t read about my doing this in years past, check out:
When retiring the memberships, I wanted to make sure I was able to maintain the integrity of all of the posts that I’d published simply without the shortcode that comes with RCP.
What started off as a simple plugin to remove the RCP shortcode turned into a plugin to remove all empty shortcodes. I’m opting to open the plugin’s repository so anyone can access it (or contribute issues, code, or create their own fork from it).
At the time of this writing, the plugin is at0.4.0 so there’s not much to expect. But I enjoy reading the what and why other developers do in their projects, so I’m going to do so with Remove Empty Shortcodes.
Though I doubt many people are reading articles like this today, I still enjoy sharing a short note on Thanksgiving Day (here in the States, of course) to look back at what’s happened in the past year.
After two years after writing a lot of content and giving exclusive access to site members, this past weekend I opened the site to everyone.
But this wasn’t a small nor was it a quick decision and it’s not something that I opted to on a whim. For those who were subscribed to the newsletter earlier this year, I made an announcement that this was coming.
