Today I released new extension for Yii 2 – yii2-simple-auth. It provides components for easy authenticate and validate the HTTP request. Each request gets its own unique token with the expiration time, so no passwords or keys are sent with the request – it should be safer than basic access authentication when you don’t use https. Read README on GitHub to get more info.
I finally updated yii-elfinder2 extension. Changes:
- Update elFinder to 2.0.5 for 1.0 branch and 2.1.5 for 1.1 branch.
- Aliases and paths are no longer hardcoded – extension should work better with composer installations.
- Minor improvements and bugfixes.
Extension sources can be downloaded from GitHub repository.
Finally I found time and motivation to refresh my home page. I planned this for 2 years, but only when I finally got a few days of vacation I get motivated to do it.
This time I decided to do it completely differently than the last time. Instead of using fancy stock theme, I created a my own theme adapted for my needs. It might not be as pretty as predefined themes, but it should be more practical to maintain and make adding new content easier. The main change is more bloggy nature – a previous idea of the home page and portfolio looked nice and seemed to be quite clever, but it makes the adding of new content very difficult and annoying. I hope that the portfolio as posts with the informations about my current activities will be more convenient and revive a little blog. In addition, I added two new taxonomies: projects and tools – it makes me easier to categorize posts and generate interesting summaries, such as those visible in the sidebar. Read more
