I’ve just added a piece of code from “Jem on WordPress” to flag that content older than 6 months on this blog may be inaccurate and not reflect “now” (this comes as I’ve just realised this would be my 996th [19 private, 6 drafts] post in a period of time spanning 15th of October 2001 to “today”: and that’s a long time in anybody’s book

Just really for my memory:
- The Comprehensive PHPExcel library is available as a PEAR module from http://pear.pearplex.net/
To install all of the above:
pear channel-discover pear.pearplex.net
pear install pearplex/PHPExcel
pear channel-discover pear.bairwell.com
pear install bairwell/Bairwell_Geocoder
If you want to make your own PEAR module, consider PHIX Project
I’m a regular user of JetBrains PhpStorm coding package and recently I’ve been doing a bit of WordPress orientated work – so how can I ensure my code matches the WordPress coding standards? Well, using Rarst’s WordPress coding standards helps.
- Just download the file and save it as “WordPress.xml” into your Php Storm folder such as .WebIde40/config/codestyles (on Linux, this was /home/[username]/.WebIde40/config/codestyles : I did have to show hidden files in Nautilus: on Windows it’ll be something like C:\Users\[username]\.WebIde40\config\codestyles\ ). To find your configuration file easily, run the following commands:
- Linux: cd ~/.WebIde40/config/codestyles
- Mac OS X: cd ~/Library/Preferences/WebIde40/codestyles
- Windows: cd c:/Users/USERNAME/.WebIde40/config/codestyles
- Restart PhpStorm
- Load your project and go to “File -> Settings”
- Select “Project Settings -> Code Style”
- Select “Scheme: WordPress” and OK
- Select “Code -> Reformat code…” and wait for your code to be reformatted
This won’t catch every item (such as the Yoda conditions), but it’ll at least make it a bit closer.
After just over 3 years working at Blue Duck Education Ltd as the Lead Developer/Systems Architect with Toby Rowland and other very talented people (too numerous to name here) building the Mangahigh Maths Games educational resource which we built from a brand new site to being one of the fastest growing educational games sites – I’m now leaving for pastures new.
So where am I going?
Well, my fiancée and I will be starting, on the 3rd of January, a new company called Bairwell Web Development to combine our two talents. Bairwell will be offering WordPress, Perch and LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP 5 : also some Varnish, PostgreSQL, Memcache, Perl and Systems administration) development consultancy services – so if you want a well designed (Katy), scalable and responsive (me) website: then please get in touch with us via our web development site (Katy is still working on it at this time of writing), Twitter or Facebook.
