Mimesis v1.7

Icon Leave Comment
v1.7 has been released. It addressed two bugs that were present in the Mimesis::transposeExon method and changed the file_put_contents function to file_place_contents. Shortly I will be adding two tutorials addressing how to create a guest book, and how to restructure a table created with Mimesis.

Mimesis v1.5 Released

Icon Leave Comment
Mimesis v1.5 has been released to the public. As it stands this is a complete ffdb package. It include methods for table/row creation and table/row deletion. Furthermore it respects atomicity of data and provides other useful routines for sorting of database data and performing queries on said table. Lots of little bugs/fixes were also addressed...

New Tutorial Up

Icon Leave Comment
I've created a new tutorial on the Mimesis page which demonstrates how to store a file (in the tutorial's case a jpeg) into the database. Furthermore, I expanded on it a bit in order to demonstrate how you can use the database in order to obscure the URL for the image and thus deter hotlinking.

Mimesis v1.2 Released

Icon Leave Comment
Put out v1.2 it fixed an error with the Mutex class that always returned false on the releaseLock() method. It also incorporates the file-locking into Mimesis so that it's no longer necessary to use the Mutex class separately to obtain file locks. Finally, it also allows for redefining the table row so that the lock does not undo itself....

Mimesis Tutorial

Icon Leave Comment
I recently released v1.1 of Mimesis and included a tutorial for an ad rotator on the Mimesis website. This should help to illustrate how Mimesis works for people who don't want to try and decipher the code. Currently, Mimesis does not support removal of entries in a table or removal of tables themselves. It does however provide the most...

Mimesis

Icon Leave Comment
I've started a new project that goes hand in hand with GrimBB called Mimesis. It's essentially built on the knowledge I gained from GrimBB. However, what sets this one apart is that I'm trying to create a database which is not integrated into the forum package itself.

Flat File Databases

Icon Leave Comment
I've noticed that I get a lot of google searches onto my GrimBB site of people looking for a flat file database package. It seems plenty of people are out there searching for such a database. GrimBB makes use of one, but it isn't necessarily a distinct API for just such an application. It's more closely-tied to the actual script...

More Efficient Database Lookups

Icon Leave Comment
Made a version number upgrade to the new build of GrimBB due to a change in the grimBase class. Before it was necessary to read all the files when the grimBase::getArtefacts method was called. However, now an array of filenames to be excluded (using regular exp...

Post Deletion

Icon Leave Comment
Originally, I had deemed that post deletion would be pointless because it would destroy the continuity of a thread within a forum. Even if all the post said is "EMPTY ENTRY" that post is still part of the thread. However, it does take up space and what's the point in having it appear there if it's useless? Also part of the...

IRC Channel

I put an irc channel at irc.freenode.net/#grimbb for GrimBB. Mostly 'cause I'm curious if anyone even uses the board lol. Does anyone even read these blog entries?

Version Number Change and New Alpha Build

Icon Leave Comment
Well GrimBB finally reached that dreaded 3.0 stage lol of course it's only in alpha though. If you read the previous entry you know about the gbSerializer class which now makes the database less data hungry. Another change is also a more effective way of reading directory contents (which I submitted as a snippet here as a matter of fact) this...

Pando used for Distribution

Icon Leave Comment
I only recently discovered that the server I used to host the zip distribution package on is down. Don't know how long that's been going on for or what but the site had been getting visited a lot and I'm sure there are some upset people who couldn't find the distribution for GrimBB -_- After trying to upload the package to my...

Database Refinement

Icon Leave Comment
Free servers have another problem that a lot of people are unaware of: file permissions. What's the problem? Simply that some free servers won't respect the permission you assign to a file, they just automatically default everything to some permission they choose. Usually the most open of all i.e. rwxrwxrwx...
