After some downtime, GreenApe is breathing again. I revived the brand with a good friend of mine and we will be reopening shop options shortly.
Michael and I have been friends for a long time. We have been working on many different projects over the years.
He launched GreenApe in 2011 and I helped him with his first steps. A couple of months ago we decided to merge our competences and expand what GreenApe offers and stands for.
From the website: “The GreenApe brand was established in 2011. GreenApe’s career began with the 1st Single Malt Whisky Coffee.
As the first of its kind, our coffee is refined with Original Single Malt Whisky. To this day, he pampers many connoisseurs and gourmets with his unique taste. Now there is another reason to rejoice.
From now on, we are continuously expanding the GreenApe product world with several stylish gadgets and useful accessories. For you this means that you will be able to discover even more beautiful, special or practical things in the future.“
GreenApe is all about lifestyle & leisure products, fun gadgets and unique food & drinks.
What is a slug ?
A slug is a part of a URL which identifies a particular page on a website in a form readable by users. It’s the nice part of the URL, which explains the page’s content. In WordPress, it’s the editable part of your URL that you can edit when writing a new post.
nSlug allows to create those urls for any language easily.
// English strings.
echo$slugGenerator->generate('Hello World');// Prints 'hello-world'.
echo$slugGenerator->generate('Life is too short!');// Prints 'life-is-too-short'.
// Arabic strings.
echo$slugGenerator->generate('صباح جميل');// Prints 'صباح-جميل'.
echo$slugGenerator->generate('مساء الخير');// Prints 'مساء-الخير'.
Underscore.php features a good hundred of methods for all kinds of types : strings, objects, arrays, functions, integers, etc., and provides a parsing class that help switching from one type to the other mid-course.
I am currently building a custom slides / template builder for a project, with a lot of moving parts and dynamic logic.
As there are repeating patterns within the slides, each pattern and its logic needs to be neatly separated. As the slides can be reordered and dropzones can be changed, I need to make sure logic doesn’t break and IDs get updated.
Before reassembling all templates, I am making sure that IDs match the slide and dropzone using a preg_replace_callback
One of the patterns is a simple tab setup, each has its unique ID defined like vl-tab_U1_S1_D1.
The function below passes the found matches through to the anonymous callback function in preg_replace_callback and offers outside data to the function using use($foo). The $dropzone object holds the current unit, slide and dropzone of the pattern, which can be used to replace the current ID with the correct one.
