swfdec and amfphp

I was a bit too optimist on my last post about swfdec and firefox. It seems that amfphp (at least the browser) is not workig with that flash plugin.

So I re-installed the flash-plugin of adobe.

Tip : I had to install nspluginwrapper but both architecture 32 and 64 bits packages.

Then I ran

mozilla-plugin-config -i -g -v

wascii add-on

Since the beginning of the week I’m using wascii from Dag Wieers, I’m very happy with it but something was really missing for a power daily use : a search function !

So yesterday night I wrote that search add-on using Zend Framework. It perfroms a fulltext search using Lucene.

This is a screenshot :

Bad day for PHP programming

Desperate PHP developer… that’s what I am today… why ?

Due to an ugly PHP bug with PHP provided with FC6 (maybe on other distributions too). I already spent some time to find that it was a bug, previously I was using sqlite with the sqlite PHP functions, but since I use the FC6, to have the support of sqlite, PDO must be used… so I did !


I use Eclipse as PHP IDE with several plugins.

Jabber and PHP

After a chat with a colleague trying to code in python because he wanted to implement some Jabber application I decided to search some PHP solution.

I’ve found class.jabber.php from Nathan Fritz.

It’s very easy to implement and fun to play with, I’ve put a sample here.

Have fun with it 😉

I deeply value the diversity of MySQL developers, users, community and my blog readers. I cannot agree the suffering, oppression, and systemic racism the Black community faces every day. Black lives matter.
