PHPBOM is the ProgClub PHP web-framework and toolkit. That's the software we use to develop web applications and web services in PHP. It's a mashup of bits and pieces John thinks are useful when delivering software for the web! For other projects see projects.


We use semantic versioning. Latest production version: unreleased. Latest development version: 0.1.0.

See tasks for work that still needs to be done.


Why this software? Because it's a good place to store useful bits and pieces that I (we?) probably want to reuse across all the web projects that I (we?) do.

There aren't any downloads yet because we're still under development on our 0.1 version. When we release 1.0 we will (hopefully!) provide tarball packages. Stay tuned.

Notes for implementers

If you are interested in incorporating this software into your project, here's what you need to know:

Grab a recent copy of the code from svn into a lib/phpbom-0.1 directory in your project. Then depending on what framework or features you want include the appropriate files. For frameworks see src/framework, for utilities see src/util, and for modules see src/module. Note that generally classes cannot be used alone, so if you want support from a class load its respective module.

Notes for ProgClub administrators

To release a version of this project use the pcrepo-branch-release script from the jj5-bin project:

$ pcrepo-branch-release phpbom $MAJOR.$MINOR $PATCH


$MAJOR = the major version number, presently 0
$MINOR = the minor version number, presently 1
$PATCH = the patch number for this release

See status for last production release.



Things to do, in rough order of priority:

  • create a TODO list... :P
