After blogging about my Symfony2 bundle release I had to also blog about my new Symfony 1.3/1.4 plugin jmHeadJsPlugin.
I have just released the new sfFlexymfonyPlugin for Symfony.
The sfFlexymfonyPlugin provides means for a developer to easily integrate flex applications into Symfony. The undelying Felx application uses a specific framework aimed to give developers a Symfony-like feel.
Detailed documentation still to follow. Please for now try to have a look at the DefaultModule example in your application. The underlying architecture is based on PureMVC so please also have a look at their documentations. Soon I will update the documentation and provide a full tutorial on how to use the framework. Also browse through the whole source code (there is not much in there so you will have a nice overview of what’s going on).
This is a very short post.
Currently I am using Symfony 1.4.1 for my development but I have noticed that I could not install most if not all plug-ins through the PEAR packaging system. Since I am using Ubuntu I quickly wrote myself a short script to handle the download and unpacking of plug-ins that I want to install. When calling the script you just give it the URL to the .tgz package of the plug-in. Enjoy
#!/bin/sh url=$1 #extract the package filename from the URL package_name=$(echo $1 | sed 's/.*\///') #extract the raw plug-in name (with version number) plugin_raw=$(echo $package_name | sed 's/\(.*\?\)\.tgz/\1/') #extract the actual name of the plug-in (without the version number) plugin_name=$(echo $package_name | sed 's/\([^-]*\).*/\1/') #go to the plug-in directory cd plugins #check if we already have downloaded the package. You may change the destination to anything you like. #I store the packages in /usr/share if [ -f /usr/share/$package_name ] then sudo cp /usr/share/$package_name ./$package_name else wget $1 sudo cp ./$package_name /usr/share/$package_name fi # untar tar zxpf ./$package_name mv ./$plugin_raw ./$plugin_name sudo rm ./$package_name # remove package.xml file if [ -f ./package.xml ] then rm package.xml fi exit 0
Just a quick dump of a recommendation I got earlier.
Process Monitor is a very useful tool if you need to see what processes are using which resources on your machine. Here’s a short overview from the website
Overview of Process Monitor Capabilities
Process Monitor includes powerful monitoring and filtering capabilities, including:
- More data captured for operation input and output parameters
- Non-destructive filters allow you to set filters without losing data
- Capture of thread stacks for each operation make it possible in many cases to identify the root cause of an operation
- Reliable capture of process details, including image path, command line, user and session ID
- Configurable and moveable columns for any event property
- Filters can be set for any data field, including fields not configured as columns
- Advanced logging architecture scales to tens of millions of captured events and gigabytes of log data
- Process tree tool shows relationship of all processes referenced in a trace
- Native log format preserves all data for loading in a different Process Monitor instance
- Process tooltip for easy viewing of process image information
- Detail tooltip allows convenient access to formatted data that doesn’t fit in the column
- Cancellable search
- Boot time logging of all operations
