ImdbPHP provides an API to the movie information stored at the IMDb.COM and MoviePilot sites. As this and the name suggests, it is primarily targeted at PHP programmers who want to extend their programs or their site with this movie information. The classes must be used in accordance with IMDb's/MoviePilot's copyright and conditions of use.
Thumbnail and Watermark is a class that can process an image on the fly by either generating a thumbnail or applying a watermark. The processed image can be displayed in a page, saved to a file, or returned to a variable. If version 2 of the GD library is available, the class can manipulate the images in true color. It supports multiple watermark positions, and auto-fitting that adjusts dimensions so that the resized image aspect is not distorted. Both JPEG and PNG are supported, but the watermark image can only be in PNG format as it needs to be transparent.
Power Form Validation is class which helps a programmer to validate form inputs just in few lines of code. This class can help control whether a field is empty, whether a component is selected, whether the values of two components are the same, whether a text entry value consists only of letters, whether a value was changed from a given value, and whether a value is longer than or shorter than or equal to a given value. The class can also control how many components are not selected or how many of them have no value entered. Email addresses can be validated with regular expressions.
DbSimple is a database abstraction library which provides an extremely laconic and handy interface for practical usage in PHP 4/5 scripts. Its usage is much easier than most of other popular abstraction libraries (like ADODB, PEAR DB, and PDO). "Query execution" and "result fetching" operations are joined thogether and complemented by powerful placeholder support (including list-based placeholders) and various fetching modes. The library supports a unique and very convenient method to build dynamic SQL queries (conditional macro-blocks).
Multi-thread Simulation is a PHP class that can emulate the execution of program threads using separate HTTP requests to the same script. It establishes an HTTP connection to the same Web server to execute the same PHP script. It sends a request that passes the name a function to execute and an argument to be passed to that function. The requested script executes some code that detects the thread execution request and calls the specified function. When the thread request script ends, the return values of the called function are returned as a serialized string.
FTP Folder Copy or Delete is a PHP class that can be used to copy and delete directories on a remote FTP server. It can traverse a given directory recursively and copy all its files and sub-directories to a given directory on an FTP server. The original permissions are also set on the files and directories on the FTP server. The class can also recursively traverse a given directory on the FTP server and remove it, including all its files and sub-directories.
The adventure PHP framework (APF) is a utility to implement object oriented and generic PHP Web applications. It allows the developer to create programs in compliance with approved software design patterns, and the code base already has answers to many everyday problems. The framework cannot be described as an application that only has to be configured, but rather as a technical basis and design guide for the design of software. Further, it introduced many concepts and efficiency tools already well known in the Java community.
