Code Showcase

While working on client projects, We often use open-sourced code. Whether that’s Bootstrap, PHP classes, Vue components or jQuery plugins/libraries – most projects use at least one open-sourced product so it seems only fair to give back!

Here are some of the open-source projects that Ben has developed, primarily written in PHP, jQuery or Vue.js with hopefully more projects released in the future.

PHP

PHP Upload

A PHP class that makes handling uploads and file validation a lot simpler. You can use the chainable methods to set up the upload parameters such as min/max file size, mime types, and file extensions. Once set up, you can simply turn on the ignition().

For a more advanced upload option, this class allows you to add callbacks and loop through the files awaiting upload to perform your own validation and checks.

Tested to work with PHP 5.6 and PHP 7.

PHP

PHP IMAP Reader

A PHP class that makes working with IMAP as easy as possible. This class is written to be chain-able so as to create a logically fluent and easily readable way to access an IMAP mailbox. It simplifies the PHP IMAP_* library into a set of easy to read methods that do the heavy lifting for you.

It has been fully tested to work from PHP 5.3+ including PHP 7.s

PHP

PHP Calendar

A PHP class that makes generating calendars as easy as possible. You can use the addEvent() or addEvents() methods to mark events on the generated calendar.

This is fully compatible from PHP 5.3+, including PHP 7.

jQuery

jQuery Calendar

A simple lightweight (2.1KB) jQuery JavaScript plug-in to generate calendars with 8 responsive colour schemes to choose from (or use your own style sheet).

This was built using the PHP Calendar version and shares the same calendar styles.

PHP

PHP Twitter Widget

A PHP alternative to the Twitter Embed Timelines JavaScript. Twitter Embedded Timelines allow you to show your latest tweets using JavaScript. While this can help you easily implement your latest tweets on your website, I needed to create a similar effect without including any additional JavaScript files on the web page. I decided to create a script that will fetch tweets server side, and allow for including in a web page without JavaScript includes. I also needed to ensure I cached the result, to avoid hitting API limits.

Works with PHP 5.3 through to PHP 7.

WordPress

WooCommerce - Customers Also Viewed

A simple plugin built for WordPress that allows the website owner to integrate a section showing products that have been viewed by other users that have viewed the current product.

The owner can choose the location of the "Customers Also Viewed" box, or use the new [customers-also-viewed] shortcode within the loop to fully customize the placement.

This is fully tested up to WordPress Version 5.2.4.

PHP

PHP Pagination

A lightweight PHP pagination class to output pagination links. This class is written to be chain-able so to create a logically fluent and easily readable way to create a set of pagination links.

It simplifies the paging of results and outputs Bootstrap 4 compatible navigation HTML.

It has been fully tested to work with PHP 5.5+, including PHP 7+.

Ben had a great idea for my project and completed the project to our requirements very quickly. He also helped me tweak a few issues and answered my questions quickly. We'll work with Ben again!

I was impressed: a freelancer who could give me inputs and details on how he'd implement the solution, kept me updated in the meanwhile, understood my requirements and proposed pretty nice tweaks to make things even better. Ben, you are amazing. I will need no more time to find any other dev's, and will surely deal with you again if I need something related to these things in the future. Full stop.
