I’m currently working on some Symfony2 bundles and I have one Netbeans project for the main Symfony2 app and one project for the bundle. The bundle files are completely separated from the app and they are just linked (ln -s) together. It works great, except for the case when I need to debug some part of the bundle’s code with Netbeans + xdebug. The debugger starts for the “main” project, which is the Symfony2 app, but setting breakpoints with Netbeans (y’know, by clicking the line number) for the bundle doesn’t really work, as those are in the other project and not in the debugged one, rendering the whole debugging useless.

Changing Jenkins' home directory on Ubuntu

on August 04, 2011. in Development, Software. A 1 minute read.

I’ve started to play around with Jenkins yesterday and I kinda don’t like that it’s default home directory is /var/lib/jenkins so I changed it to /home/jenkins, so I’m throwing the steps needed out here for future reference.

I’ve spent this weekend hacking on some unit tests for Zend\Dojo and I ran into an issue where I need Xdebug to, well, debug. Note, that this is not for debugging a Zend Framework application, but for debugging Zend Framework itself. I am using Netbeans + Xdebug to debug regular code, but debugging unit tests was something completely new for me. Turns out, it’s not entirely different from “regular” debugging.

Announcing Hex

Well, guess it’s time to announce it officially here, too. Since last month I’m running my own little web development company called Hex. After 2 years with the online_team, it was time to move on and turn to new adventures.

It took me a while to grab myself a copy of Matthew Turland’sGuide to Web Scraping with PHP”, but a few weeks ago a copy finally arrived and I had the pleasure of reading it. I planned to buy it right as the print copy was announced, but then realised that php|arch accepts only PayPal as the payment method, which doesn’t work from Serbia, so I had to postpone the shopping for some better times. Fast forward 5-6 months and I found a copy on the Book Depository, which has no shipping costs! Yey!

New adventures ahead!

After a month or two of pondering and thinking and planning and thinking and some more thinking, today I finally told the management at work that I’ll be leaving in a month from today. Actually, I won’t be extending my contract with them which will end on June 24th.

DORS/CLUC 2011 recap

on May 18, 2011. in Blablabla, Development. A 3 minute read.

This year’s DORS/CLUC has been and gone, 18th in the row for the organisers, first one (but not the last!) for me. For those of you who not know, DORS/CLUC is a conference about GNU/Linux and open source, which took place in the nice town of Zagreb, Croatia, in one of the auditoriums of FER (Faculty of electronics and computer science). I attended the conference as a speaker with a lightning talk on PHPPlaneta.net and a regular talk on Zend Framework.

Thanks to a discussion on the Zend Framework mailing list I learned about a new feature, a feature that allows for grouping action controllers in subdirectories! Well, this is more of an unknown and undocumented feature than new, as it is the part of the framework for at least 3 years.
