Brian's PHP Site

Many PHP sites have, over the years, asked for contributions from community members. I have written a couple of articles that various PHP sites have expressed an interest in, but for whatever reason, never posted (despite praise and promises that they would be posted). So, rather than allow my work to disappear into the bit bucket, I will post the articles here.

I modified the template engines article to demonstrate more friendly template syntax. The old way got sort of annoying. Note that the API didn't change, just the template syntax (and there is a new template class as well - and it supports caching).

Uploaded the initial site. Forgive the design, I'm a programmer. There were two articles posted today.

  • Template Engines - This article discusses my current view of the major template engines (including my own, bTemplate). You may be surprised...
  • PHP Class Tutorial - This article (written in 2001) is a good introduction to object-oriented concepts and how they relate to PHP.

Master Article List

  • Updated Template Engines - This article discusses my view of the major template engines and whether they are really necessary.
  • Old Template Engines - This is the original template engines article. Don't bother reading it, read the one above. It's still listed here so interested parties can see the original document.
  • PHP Class Tutorial - This article (written in 2001) is a good introduction to object-oriented concepts and how they relate to PHP.
