Developing JSON API with Joomla Framework

Developing JSON API with Joomla Framework

At the end of 2013 I was asked to develop a web app for creating interactive calculators called Calculoid. It was as exciting for me as for a kid at candy store, first because I was the one who could choose technologies for this project, and second because it was the same week the shiny new Joomla Framework was released.

Socialement votre

Socialement votre

Les réseaux sociaux sont devenus totalement incontournables. Est-ce un bien, est-ce un mal ? Difficile de juger, mais leur intégration dans les sites web, quels qu'ils soient, est devenu inévitable. Echanger des informations concernant son site avec Facebook et Google+ ne peut plus être ignoré des webmasters. A tel point que Facebook, toujours à la pointe de ce genre d'ouverture a diffusé en 2010 une API pour ce faire : Open Graph. Comme toute API, celle-ci a ses règles, les ignorer ou pour le moins ne pas connaître leurs grands principes conduit à des fonctionnements... étranges. Dans cet article, vous allez apprendre à ajouter des meta-tags à vos articles afin que Facebook et consors sachent plus précisément ce que vous souhaitez mettre en avant. Avant d'aller plus loin avec Open Graph, commençons par un petit tour d'horizon de ce que l'on peut faire avec Joomla! sans (gros) effort.

Reaching the End of Summer with SQL Optimization

Reaching the End of Summer with SQL Optimization

GSoC 2014 with the Project named SQL Optimization for Joomla CMS has come to an end which can be considered as a success full project according to my opinion. This project was not only otoptimize the queries but also to analyze the weaknesses and to find solution as well as research in new enhancements. After four months of hard work I came up with some solutions which can be identfied as the first step of a long journey of Joomla!'s database optimization. The vision of this project was to give my contribution to make Joomla! better than other Content Management Syetems and I hope I have given a contribution which will be a starting step of a long journey.
