The worlds collide: jsphp and php.js

I guess we can consider the overlapping between PHP and JavaScript worlds complete.  Just within the last couple of days I separately and independently came across two different projects:

  • jsphp, which is a pseudo-implementation of the ECMA 262 standard (JavaScript 8.5.1) for PHP 5.3+
  • php.js, which is a resource that offers community-built JavaScript alternatives to PHP functions

So now you can use JavaScript-like stuff in PHP, and PHP-like stuff in JavaScript.  Boom!

OctroTree – Google Chrome extension for browsing GitHub code repositories.  I promise you, this is one of those things that you wouldn’t believe you lived without before.  Fast, convenient, with support for private repositories (via API access token), GitHub Enterprise, and keyboard shortcuts.  Absolutely essential for anyone who is on GitHub!


TODO : Read more documentation

It’s after bits like this one, I think I should spend more time reading documentation:



Create a new transaction.

This routine should _never_ be called by anything other than RT::Ticket. It should not be called from client code. Ever. Not ever. If you do this, we will hunt you down and break your kneecaps. Then the unpleasant stuff will start.

TODO: Document what gets passed to this
