Just a quick post about the new PHP IDE by JetBrains. So far I’ve been working with Aptana Studio. I also tried NetBeans and Comodo Edit, but none was really satisfying, because either dojo or ftp support was missing (if I find time, I’ll write a post in more detail about the differences between those IDEs).
The Solmeta Geotagger N2 makes it very easy for you to add geographical information to your images. It’s a small GPS that you slide into the flash shoe and connect directly to your camera. Every time you take a photo it writes the coordinates directly into the Exif header. Furthermore, it also records the height and the direction using its contained electronic compass. This works perfectly and the big advantage over a separate GPS device is that you don’t have to synchronize the location data with your photos later with specialized software. The manual is also pretty extensive and helpful.
You can execute phpDocumentor directly from Aptana or Eclipse. The PHP-project you would like to document with phpDocumentor needs to be open and selected in eclipse before you start the following steps:
I only started recently to dig into REST, so I’m in no way an expert in this field. There are not that many tutorials on the internet, and the ones I found were only of limited help. They all seemed to miss something or, rather, I missed something. So I decided to write my own tutorial about my findings to help others that might have the same problems. On the client side, I’ll use the Dojo Toolkit, on the server side, PHP.
I will focus mainly on providing and explaining some working code examples including server PHP code. At the end of this article you can find all code as a downloadable zip-file. As an introduction to REST, read some of the tutorials linked at the end of this article, because I’m not going to repeat some of the things you can read there.
