    Exclamation 6 projects every PHP developer should use

    As a php web developer, you should know that php is probably the language that has the biggest code repository. So no matter what module you want to include in your project there should be an open source solution.

    This can help in various ways, but just in case you canít think of one, here I put a few :

    * Open source is worked by many people, so the result is for sure better than one manís work
    * You can have free updates to your code, while otherwise you should code the updates each time something new comes up
    * You save development time while your project is getting better

    Anyway, after many years as a web developer, Iíve compiled a list of php classes that can be easily integrated in any project and I am regularly use.

    Sending Emails
    Sending emails is something very common for every web site. Phpís mail() function is good for this, but what if you want to attach a file, or send through an SMTP server, etc? Well in that case you should use phpmailer

    User Manipulation
    Another common module is the user module. With that you can manipulate users (login, logout, register, etc.) Personally Iíve never found a project that is good enough, so I created my own.

    Php user class is a module that can be used even in established projects, as it uses variable data for database tables, fields, session variables, etc.

    Fetching RSS Feeds
    Ever wanted to fetch an rss feed from your project? Well there is always an easy way to fetch a feed but in most cases you need more than that. When that is the case you should definitely use Magpie RSS .

    Template System
    Another thing that all sites use is a template. A template engine can save you lots of time, while it can make display changes very easy. A complete template engine that most projects use is Smarty.

    BBcode

    BBcode used to be a functionality for forums, but as more and more sites use it in order to be more friendly to their users, you might want to use BBcode to your site. The problem is that BBcode requires a lot of coding and I am not sure if you have the time for this. If you donít youíll find StringParser_BBcode class very useful.

    Paypal Payment Integration
    As you may know paypal has a nice API for developers who want to integrate paypal payments in their sites. The paypal IPN integration class helps you make use of it and start accepting payments in 20 minutes.

    For all of the above, I use Symfony >___< Best framework I've ever used. That, or I suck really badly when trying to start from the scratch.

    symfony vs cakephp?

    i used to code with cakephp.
    the longer i code, the more complicated to do particular things(plus lack of documentation).
    maybe i should try symfony..
