php memcache simulate using file system

September 13th, 2011 No comments

Recently we were facing some difficulties, where we had facilitate implementing a copy of an application on a development environment with our client. The most difficult part was that though we could coax php to load libraries, we could not install any system services. We were supposed to install only a web application to a pre-configured virtual host. Since we had enjoyed the facility of having Memcache at our own development environment, some core part of the application which was required only when users are logged in, was using the Memcache. Also our database abstraction layer was heavily depending on the memcache library. We immediately identified that the requirements were not met and specified that the environment was not as we required. But the support people were so adamant that they insisted us to proceed by commenting out all references to the class. Well I can also be tough.

Compressing php source files for embedded applications

September 6th, 2011 Comments off

Compressing php code is not been a tough task, and this is not for the purpose of obfuscating or encoding to make closed source distribution. But to create compact files which can be distributed by pasting into inline text, or into email without the need for attaching. The size will be drastically reduced. Actually at Saturn we did this to help us achieve to load a whole application on to a very space constrained flash disk. We were the least bothered about the process cycles taken to evaluate the php files since they will happen only once in a blue moon when the embedded system restarts. I am pretty sure that for closing source, there are other solutions.
