news and thoughts on and around the development of the iCite net

PHP is pleasing happy people

Working on a project for a Juxtaprose client, I needed to whip something up as a dynamic web page, and decided to write it myself using PHP and Mysql, since they are already available in the site's hosting environment. I've done things in PHP on many occasions, but this is sort-of the first time I've started with a totally blank slate, and set up a OSXAMP development / test environment, wrote all the code, posted it on the live server, etc.

And, I just wanted to say that, at this level, PHP is nice! It's good stuff—and it's crazy to imagine so many hosting environments already configured for php/mysql (when compared with what it used to be like getting server/application/database setups happening in say, 1996). And, it's sooo easy to view-source-copy-and-paste good PHP web code (like, from WordPress).

Somewhat ironically, the server-side subproject of the iCite net that I'm working on right now (i.e., I am working to release this thing as a subproject), is, in its "reference implementation", going to be a blojsom flavor / plugin written in Java. It's only ironic in that Java is a bit less php, IMO.
