New stjerm Preferences Dialog

Posted on 07 Jul 2012

In 2008, I took over development of a project called Stjerm from Markus Groß  (who himself took over development from the original author, Stjepan Glavina) and, over the years, have slowly added in features, as well as moved the project over to Google Code Hosting from Gna. Then I switched over to using a MacBook, which essentially halted development.

Now, however, I've switched back to Linux and am looking forward to continuing development of the project. My first big push for the project, aside from tackling some outstanding items in the bug reports, is to add in a preferences dialog that will aid in altering the options stored in the .Xdefaults file. It's something I've wanted to do since I took over the project, and I'm finally going to give it a go.

Here's a mockup of what I'm planning to wet your appetite:

The Clean Architecture in PHP

I've written a book on the Clean Architecture in PHP, which covers how to cleanly organize and decouple your code in a way that prepares it to survive and be easy to maintain for the long term.
