Hey folks, we’re about to start a new important step in theWebMind 2.0 development, and we want you to colaborate.
Yes, and it’s quite easy. Simply by testing the new version you will be helping us a lot. But you can also subscribe to help us in many different ways.
To subscribe to the team, and receive the latest version everytime we change something, before the others, just visit https://thewebmind.org/contribute/

You can also colaborate readding the new documentation we have worked on, and even help us translating it, and by joining our discussion group at https://groups.google.com/group/thewebmind.

See you there.

Do dia 26 ao dia 20 ocorrerá em São Paulo o maior evento voltado para o PHP da América Latina, o PHPConference Brasil.
TheWebMind 2.0 participará em uma sala separada, do evento php UNconference, organizado pelo grupo PHPSP.

Àqueles que tiverem interesse, podem colaborar simplesmente votando e comentando em nossa palestra pelo evento em https://joind.in/talk/view/1002.

Apresentação Tche linux

A apresentação no tchelinux foi muito legal. Fizemos excelentes contatos e muitas coisas boas estão por vir.
O evento foi todo muito bom, repleto de palestras muito legais. Foi bem organizado e pudemos conhecer e interagir com muita gente interessante.
Após o evento, nos encontramos em uma churrascaria.
O evento valeu muito. Aconselho a todos a ir nos próximos eventos promovidos pelo TcheLinux.
Abaixo, veja os slides da apresentação que fizemos no evento:

Triggering HTTP errors

1 comment

Some times, we’ve gotta control some respones from our server, with PHP, specialy when we’re using Ajax, with which our response will not, necessarily, be show.
An example I can give is an experience I had while developin for theWebmind.org. Our ajax requisitions are mostly receiveing jSon answers. In other words, ANY error, either fatal or warning or notice, will brake the jSon code. We had to treat it on our client side, due to fix any javascript error while decoding the received jSon doce.
But, instead of that, a better option was to treat our errors inside our server side.

PHP allows us doing it by using set_error_handler(”func”);
You see details about this function here.

Well, forcing PHP to work with OUR method to treat all errors was the first step. BUT, I had a few problems while trying to specify this function to php on linux when my function was inside an object. I wanted to call a function I had in my framework, like this.

Specifying a class method to this error hadler returned errors on Linux.

Ok, now, you can handle your errors, with your own function.
You can simply trigger it any time. For example, if the user has not submited a number in an “age” input, you want it to trigger an error.

trigger_error(’age is not numeric’, E_USER_ERROR);

Ok, now, we all know that any error will end at our own function, let’s call it errHandler.
This function signature is this:
function errHandler($errno, $errstr, $errfile, $errline)

$errno corresponds to the error code, which are in some constants, like:

In other words, we may use a switch($errno)

switch ($errno)
case E_USER_ERROR: break;
case E_USER_WARNING: break;
case E_USER_NOTICE: break;

You may choose, for exapmle, to send an email to the code’s author when a fatal error occurres.
Let’s, in this example, change these options:

function errHandler($errno, $errstr, $errfile, $errline)
$msg= “error!”.$errno.’\n’.$errstr.’\nFile: ‘.$errfile.’ at line ‘.$errline;
mail(’[email protected]’, ‘error message’, $msg);
$code= 499; // the response your browser will have
// these next 2 lines will output an error to the browser, this is the key
header(”HTTP/1.0 $code $msg”);
echo “A warning message!“;
// will not do anything

Please, notice that all “notices” will be ignored, while we will write a message for each warning, and when an error ocurres, an email will be sent, and your browser will receive an http header error. This will force you ajax to go to a different status, not 200 // OK
With this, you can manage your errors in client side, to show a message, or take a different action.

You only have to be careful that, the header instruction, in PHP, MUST be returned before ANY charactere. For example:

echo ” “;
header(’any header instruction’);

will give you a warning, once you have already sent a space to your client. You have an error_handler set, then, it will be called, but, if your erro handler uses header there, then the default error message will be displayed.

After all, if you wan o force PHP to execute again, the default error_handler, use

SubType Support

No comments

theWebMind 2.0 will support subType creation.
In the language, itself, you will be able to create your own subTypes, due to write less, centralize some information and organize you code
