Source code examples

PHP Example from my framework JEWE, a simple framework that loads any plugins a developer has uploaded to the server and lets them prepare HTML page.
  • Engine
    • index.php - initializes whole framework
    • - defines how the plugins will process input files and generate HTML page based on server configuration (file
    • - is responsible for loading and registering all plugins
  • Plugins
    • - loads an input file (defined in configuration) and processes it line-by-line by using other plugins
    • - looks for special keywords in the input file and both creates header elements in the HTML file and prepares list of the chapters so that other plugins can later create menu for the HTML page
  • Functional example
PHP/ZendZend_Db_Query - Modification of the original Zend_Db_Select that supports more query types (INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, SubQuery), more complex conditions (WHERE, JOIN), automatic column name translation to aliases, etc.
Javascript sample of my work on extensions and plugins for various JS frameworks and libraries
  • jQuerySmartEllipsis - Inteligent replacement for CSS definition text-overflow: ellipsis. Based on a discussion on StackOverflow.
  • jQuery Process - Alternative of jQuery's Deferred class that simulates ES6 Promises (in ES5 environment) and adds more functionality to handling promises, slave processes and AJAX responses.
  • jQuery BWIP - jQuery wrapper for the BWIP-JS library (barcode writer). Allows to generate barcodes directly from elements selected by jQuery and optimizes when used on a multiple elements at once.
  • Less Version - Plugin for LESSC compiler to calculate version hash for files included into CSS (images) for file versioning (anti-caching).
Bash (UNIX script)
  • - script looks for an error in log files based on known error description and time when it happened. When found, it shows menu for easier error processing.
    Script expects few preconditions:
    • logs are rotated periodically - script skips older logs to improve performace
    • all logs can be found on current system in folder "/mnt/<server>/logs" where <server> is name of a remote server
    • logs are stored in folders named by running process and files are named by process and log type, e.g. "logs/apache/apache-error.log"
    • script is written for Red Hat linux with bash (version 3.2.25), less (v436) and Midnight Commander's MCview
