I have been looking around for some good examples to use the new PHP autoloader interoperability standard according to the PHP Standards Recommendation #0 (PSR-0). And since I could find anything good, I had to figure it out by my self, here is the result. gist id=3027247 HowTo: <?php # Adds your library to the beginning of the php include path addInclude('~/code/libs', FALSE); $loader = new SplClassLoader(); # adds the php include path to the class $loader->setIncludePathLookup(true); $loader->add('Zend'); $loader->add('PEAR'); # Give the path if it isn't in the php include path like this $loader->add('Symfony', '/path/to/symfony'); $loader -> register(); ?

Messenger Laravel Framework

This is a fork and upgrade of the davzie message class. A info, error etc messenger class that allows you to add validation errors, statuses etc to flash data and then retrieve them in a nicely formatted way in your front-end. Automates the process a little when you’re adding and retrieving messages, especially in a CRUD type environment. The formatting integrates well with Twitter’s Bootstrap Alert formatting. This upgraded version works smoothly with the Laravel validation class

PHP goto statement

I just discovered that the goto statement is available since php 5.3 I love the guys from php for that. I am a hobby programmer and unlike the professionals, I learned OOP via php, which is great but having goto available like back in the Amiga days made my day.
