Yet another library of those damned helper functions.
Yet another package full of helper functions.
This is pretty much a personal dumping ground for little functions and classes I make which don’t fit anywhere else. Every now and again I extract a whole bunch of related functions into a package of their own.
A lot of the open source code I’ve written depends on this package, which is not a very good thing as it’s actually quite big, especially if you install all the dev dependencies (which composer does by default). So I’m currently (2013-06) in the process of extracting the bits I’m using into minimal packages as described above.
BarnabyWalters\Doctrine\Types\Json: A custom type for Doctrine allowing arrays to be stored as JSON in
BarnabyWalters\Helpers\Helpers: A class full of static helper methods for doing various bits of text processing and other stuff.
BarnabyWalters\Helpers\Microformats: Static helper methods for processing canonical microformats-2 array structures
BarnabyWalters\Posse\*: A namespace full of helper classes for syndicating content. Includes:
- THE TRUNCENATOR
- Twitter syndication methods
- intelligent ActivityStreams Object => Twitter POST array
- HTML => Microblogging syntax converter
