Yii Framework

Yii is one of the lesser known PHP Frameworks, but it has been around for quite some time and is notably popular with professional developers who hate faffing about when building web applications. It’s a sort-of secret tip and go-to toolkit for those who hate the shoddy and sub-par data- and application models of WordPress, Drupal and the likes. It is also the foundation of the professional Craft CMS. Yii Framework weiterlesen

PHP Snippet: Slugify a string

This one has some extra stuff for German characters in it. Probably not needed because it’s covered by iconv, but whatever:

function slugify($str)
{
       $returnMe = strtotime(trim(@iconv('UTF-8', 'ASCII//TRANSLIT', $str)));

       foreach ([
              " " => "_",
              "/" => "-",
              "" => "",
              "." => "-",
              "ü" => "ue",
              "ö" => "oe",
              "ä" => "ae",
              "ß" => "ss",
              "&" => "+",
              '"' => "_"
       ] as $search => $replace)
       {
              $returnMe = str_replace($search, $replace, $returnMe);
       }

       return $returnMe;
    }

PHP Snippet: Check if code is running on a production environment

function isLive($liveTld = ".de")
{
       $homeUrl = (isset($_SERVER['HTTPS']) && $_SERVER['HTTPS']
       === 'on' ? "https" : "http")."://$_SERVER[HTTP_HOST]";

$returnMe = false;
if ( (!(strpos($homeUrl, ".local") !== false)) && (!(strpos($homeUrl, ".intra") !== false)) && (!(strpos($homeUrl, "stage") !== false)) && (!(strpos($homeUrl, "staging") !== false)) && (strpos($homeUrl, $liveTld) !== false) ) { $returnMe = true; }
return $returnMe; }

Get the clients IP address

$clientIpAdress = isset($_SERVER['HTTP_CLIENT_IP'])?$_SERVER['HTTP_CLIENT_IP']:isset($_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR'])?$_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR']:$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];

Do *not* use this on it’s own for security purposes!
