Hey, today I finally decided to close this blog. That means it will be still online for some time, but the new posts won’t appear at all. There are many reasons of this decision. Besides opening a company, I decided to completely focus on the polish Contao website. I am also not in good relations with the Contao team, so I think there is no need to continue all these. However, if you need any help or you have a work for me, look for my e-mail address on the about page. Thank you all for your support and comments! Do zobaczenia
In one of my recent projects I had to get some data from the external database, in this case it was a Sugar CRM database. So I had to write a little function, which I will share with you now.
As I have recently published the Contao function lookup tool, I decided to show you one project more. The idea is simple and I bet you have already know that. A pastebin is a tool that is usually used to share code snippets, either in a chat or forums talk. My pastebin is available under the http://pstbn.com/ and comes with several features:
- Code snippet expiration
- Password protected
- Multiple highlighting, from AS3 to XML
- Multiple highlight themes, those syntaxhighligher genuine + Contao’s default theme
- Copy URL and code within one button click
There still might be some issues since the project is still in beta phase.
I have recently published a little script that allows you to check most popular functions in Contao. You can find it at the http://library.qzminski.com/. To use it, simply enter the function or tag you are looking for, then choose appropriate function from the search results. For example: “generateImage()” or “image”. Note that not all Contao functions are in the database yet!
I want to dedicate this post to all Contao module developers, which are either novice or messy programmers. I have recently checked quite a number of extensions in the official repository, and it becomes a real challenge if you woud like to adjust some of them to your needs.
