Pinned toot

If you’re joining us, why not introduce yourself? Tag your toot with and pin it to your profile.

My history goes back to 2003, when Chris Shiflett launched the phpcommunity.org project. We wanted to provide a hub for the PHP community. We built up a great community on Freenode IRC (we’re in ). Nowadays, @ramsey manages the PHPC accounts & domains and is working to launch a non-profit for the PHP community.

Composer says "Package phpunit/phpunit-mock-objects is abandoned, you should avoid using it. No replacement was suggested"

Any suggestions here?

‪“What the Ã�©Ð”ã° is going on!?” Kevin Smith talks us out of charset hell at this month’s user group meeting.‬

@phpc glad that you ask ;) But seriously, it’s a free and Open Source PHP CMS (neos.io), for example used to run 1und1.de/ It’s not well known in the America yet, but on the rise here in Europe (we have a Fontawesome icon 😊). And, yeah, full disclosure, I founded it some years ago. But of course, adding the logo only makes sense when people talk about it and know it. So, feel free to add or ignore.

I often get new WordPress work that I don’t have time to take on, but I don’t know any other WordPress developers.

If you know any really great WordPress developers or are one yourself, please let me know so I can send them/you work!

PHP question: It looks like it's possible to "use", and therefore alias, a namespaced constant. Is there any way to do the same thing with a namespaced class constant?

“According to Jenny Wong at WordCamp US, is committed to dropping 5 support by the end of 2019. She also says that the team could aim for a minimum of PHP 7.2 by the end of 2019.”

I’ve got some cool shortcodes for PHP frameworks and CMSes. Let me know if I’m missing your favorite framework or CMS, and I’ll try to add it.

:cakephp: :codeigniter: :drupal: :drupal8: :joomla: :laravel: :slimphp: :symfony: :typo3: :wordpress: :yii: :zend: :zendfw:

It looks like your favourite PHPdocs might finally come to a git-repository near you in the not too distant future...

I wrote up the API I'm thinking about for my #ActivityPub #PHP library! If you're interested in building federated PHP applications, I'd really appreciate if you check it out:

github.com/pterotype-project/a

I opened an issue where people can give feedback and discuss the API so that we can make sure it will meet the needs of Fediverse developers. If you have any feedback or suggestions, please contribute to the discussion:

Oh, PHP. Some days you're just magical.

I hate that about you.

Do you learn better by watching videos of programmers? Want to learn how to test your PHP code? Want to keep the videos forever afterwards? My course will help leanpub.com/c/learntotest

@andrioid "Default" is the value if you don't explicitly set it in your php.ini file. "Development" and "Production" are the values the PHP team recommends for those environments. See also github.com/php/php-src/blob/f2

PHP Community on Mastodon

Open source. Open community. We are dedicated to building and enriching the PHP community. Join us!

Welcome to the PHP Community on Mastodon! We're a friendly little Mastodon instance providing a place for PHP developers to discuss topics related to PHP, as well as topics unrelated to PHP. First and foremost, we're about building community, and that doesn't always involve technical discussion, so feel free to go off-topic and have fun.

Before you get started, make sure you check out our code of conduct.


Thank you to Jakob Westhoff for allowing the use of the photograph "elePHPants walking through the light."
