Beyond DateTime: a domain-driven approach to date and time

Time is omnipresent in software development. Pretty much every web application works with it in one way or another. Even the simplest blogging platform stores "when" a post should be published and then displays and sorts them using that information. While you might not run into any issues when developing a blogging platform, any more complex system can easily expose how complicated time actually is. Because time is complicated. And yet, many standard libraries in programming languages only give us a limited arsenal to tackle it.

Services don't need names

I love Nette Framework's dependency injection solution. I really do. This post is here to share this passion, explaining why I think it is the best DI solution in today's PHP ecosystem.

Body parser middleware that has your back

If you've ever implemented an HTTP API in PHP, you probably know that there's one thing you have to do over and over and over: parse the request body and validate the resulting structure. Now that we have PSR-15, let's use a middleware for that!

Don't just float, swim with the floating point

They say you should understand floating-point precision by 35.0000000000014. This post is here to help you: it discusses how floats are (im)precise and why, demonstrates the problems you inevitably encounter when doing math with floats, and presents ways to prevent those problems by using more proper data types and structures.

The frameworkless application

There's a new buzzword on the PHP block: frameworkless. The activities of PHP communities last year made it possible to build robust applications, uniquely composed of little bits, without relying on a big framework. Let's find out how they work and if it's a good approach.

Keeping your dependencies up-to-date

As the business requirements grow, so does the list of dependencies. Managers ask for a new feature, you just composer-require this thing and that other thing, and wire it into the application. But how do you keep track of new features in the dependencies? Or bugfixes? Or, most importantly, security patches?!

Clock needs an interface

Almost every application needs to work with time: if not for some greater purpose like expiring access credentials, entities usually store information about when they were created or generally when something happened. Telling time is indeed a crucial responsibility, and being able to rely on the mechanism across the whole codebase is really important. But it can get problematic.

Announcing three new open-source projects

I've had a really productive couple of weeks and (mostly) weekends recently. I've worked extensively on one of my side projects using modern JS stack including Webpack, faced issues here and there, and found a way to solve them. In the end, I proudly announce three new open-source packages: a modern AJAX library for Nette Framework, Neon loader for Webpack, and a library integrating the Webpack build process into Nette-powered applications.

CacheFactory: for better testing of cache integration

Unit testing a class that uses Nette's cache can be a pain in the you-know-what. I've found myself writing a very simple cache factory to solve this and make testing classes depending on cache a pleasing experience, so I've decided to make an extension out of it.
