So last time I harvested the entire SitePoint domain into a set of structured, searchable data. In this part, I build a simple PHP GUI around it to make a rudimentary search engine with some filters.
 
Building a search engine based on a +Diffbot collection

In the previous post, we harvested all of +SitePoint's articles automatically with the help of +Diffbot. In this one, we apply this data to a PHP-powered mini-app to make a fully fledged search engine with filters. Witness the power of structured data!

Neural decorators and how human memory works

I wrote a post dealing with the decorator pattern (from software development) but applied to human memory to explain how we remember and form recollections. If you're looking to wind down on a Friday with a light and potentially interesting 15-minute read, I'd appreciate it.
I was watching the new TV show Humans the other day and in it, an older android model starts to lose its memory — not co…

I wrote about packaging up PHP apps as Phars with the Box tool. Used a pretty interesting sample app for a demo project. Check it out.
 
Turning PHP apps into executable .phars with Box

Phar files are single-file PHP applications, archives that contain all the files a PHP app needs to function. They're executable and can be easily shared with others without the need for complex server setups. Interested in how they're made? Here is a quick guide by +Bruno Škvorc , demoing it on a sample mini application!

Just sold my first photo on +500px  ¯\(ツ)

I am hereby pledging to donate all my photo sales money to a charity (yet to be decided which) for everything I sell in 2015, and probably beyond, I'll see.
Well, technically, not beer. Radler. Lemon juice + beer. This wasp partied like there's no tomorrow.

I wrote a visual tutorial about deploying apps on +DigitalOcean with Dploy.io.
 
Deploying PHP apps to +DigitalOcean with dploy.io

Here's a visual guide on setting up an automatic deployment system for your PHP application. Dploy will pull your code from Github, add in some custom files if needed, automatically trigger setup commands (like "composer install") save a backup of the previous version, and set up the new version instantly. 

This means no downtime for your users - everything happens in an instant, so you can develop and push changes live without fear!

In this post, +Bruno Škvorc reintroduces you to Vagrant, explaining what it is, why it is, and how to get up and running with it in less than 5 minutes. Your development workflow will never be the same again.

Having read the all-positive reviews for this place, my girlfriend and I just had to try it out. We were sorely disappointed. The waiter (a bald, middle-aged guy) was very unpleasant, pretentious, and seemed like not only he didn't want to be there, but also like he hated us being there. We later figured out that this was due to us being locals (another pair of locals was also given the cold shoulder, while Germans were welcomed with a smile) - though it might have had something to do with us coming with a puppy, too. When asked to recommend a wine, the waiter shrugged his shoulders and said "Well what do you want?", just listing the sorts they had. That's *not* recommending. When asked if we wanted water, again, he shrugged and offered two sorts, seemingly annoyed. My steak, ordered raw, was charcoal on the surface - it tasted as if burned. Having ordered arugula as a side with the steak, I was promptly informed they had only enough for one portion. For a popular restaurant mid-season, that's unacceptable. Admittedly, the dessert was amazing, my girlfriend's ravioli with truffles were really good, and the one arugula salad with cheese we actually managed to get was also a great side dish. Until their service improves, however, I cannot recommend this restaurant. You should get a $100 dinner elsewhere, some place where it actually feels like a hundred bucks.

Fantastic food, great portions. Looks and feels very local and "cheap" but is actually both affordable and excellent. An amazing pit stop to refuel your stomach. Also, free WiFi hotspot without a login wall - very useful for planning route further.

Chewy and incredibly greasy and fat steak (the worst entrecote ever), unprofessional and unfriendly staff (rolled eyes at our complaint and just left), definitely not worth the money - avoid at all costs.

Excellent Zante Lamb, fantastic meat, very juicy and tasty. Quite a fancy tavern, considering amount of food per euro, but a foodie's heaven. Also, the elusive Alfa beer is on offer here.

Best veal steak I ever ate. Comfy, cozy, great wine. Very intimate and somewhat hard to find, but worth it. Also somewhat pricey.

Brilliant service, very friendly and always smiling staff. Great sake, high quality chopsticks, and most importantly, absolutely amazing food. We ate Maki Mori A and Maki Mori B menus, and both were mindblowing.
