Fastest PHP 5.6 Framework

Just finished the first significant release of Ornithopter.io which is the underlying code base I use for all of my projects. It has a ridiculously fast load time; it is even fast enough for high-frequency trading. Code usage is similar to CodeIgniter. You can use it like Slim (as a micro framework with custom routes.) Comparable feature set to Laravel. But … 

 

PHP Class with ~25 string manipulation methods

Spent a bit of time working on this today, trying to get the most complete string manipulation coverage in a single class. The individual methods may also be useful for picking a part for individual tasks; note that two methods are wrappers to the Inflection Class I wrote a few days ago. If you are looking … 

 

List of SEO Stop Words

Another piece of information I had trouble finding was a list of Google, Bing and Yahoo (or general search engine) stop words, or words that do not carry much value for SEO purposes. I created a Gist on GitHub with various PHP and generic arrays and options for getting this list of words in a programming compatible … 

 

PHP Class: Create HTML Tags

Just finished a pretty simple PHP class that will go into the Ornithopter.io helpers. This HTML PHP class can create any valid HTML element with or without content, an ID and arbitrary number of classes / attributes. If you need a simple PHP class to create HTML elements (using string concatenation) and don’t want to use the full blown … 

 

All HTML Tags in a PHP Array

After searching for this myself and being unable to find it, I created a Gist on GitHub with several files for various needs. I needed a list of all valid HTML tags in a PHP array. If you need all HTML element tags in a PHP list or array there are several options available in … 

 

Influence, butterfly effects & knowledge influence duties

There was a big spat recently between Neil deGrasse Tyson and rapper B.o.B. about whether or not the Earth is flat. I don’t believe the Earth is flat, and I am not going to get into the details about what was said or if this conversation matters, but I just want to touch on a point … 

 

And then things got shittier

Or the story of how when it rains it pours. There is a lot of culminating factors in my life that are adding stress, to the point where they could potentially become handicapping distractions in my mind. Wish I had some epiphany or inspirational words for anyone going through hard times and unsure how to … 

 

Polar bears going extinct and your Bitcoin startup sucks

A few months ago I designed a trading algorithm called Goltana that quickly received attention on Reddit, Twitter and a YCombinator startup called SFOX. They went on to write a blog post about how their algorithm targets mine and provides some special functionality for traders. This is a half-assed reply to their post: A Polar … 

 

Simple PHP Inflector Class

Modified the Doctrine Project‘s class for Inflection to be more concise and include better notation. It may or may not work for your needs, but for my purposes it is good enough and handles most (if not nearly all) english words, transforming singular nouns into plurals, and of course the reverse, transforming plural nouns into singulars. After … 

 

Dissenting opinions, down votes & progressive thought

I posted a comment on Hacker News but was swiftly buried for not being enthusiastic or approving. Good thing I can express myself freely outside the liberal circle jerk. Because if you are not overwhelmingly supportive or have dissenting views from the political, social, economic, religious or general threads of thinking, you are not only an …
