Blog: PHP MySQL Scheman package blog
Package: PHP MySQL Scheman

Database schema changes are necessary to perform when an application needs to evolve and store more information in its database tables.

Changing a database schema is a delicate operation. The changes to be done on the database schema need to be done in the right order and use the correct SQL statements so that multiple changes can be done successfully.

This package provides a safer solution by generating a JSON file with the current database table schema definition.

Then the developer can make the database schema changes he wants in the JSON file so that the package can perform the necessary changes executing the correct SQL statements in the correct order.

1. How to Implement a PHP CLI Progress Indicator by Animating the Cursors While a PHP Task in Running

Updated on: 2021-07-21

Posted on:

Blog: PHP CLI Spinner package blog
Package: PHP CLI Spinner

Sometimes applications need to execute tasks that take a long time to finish. It is always good to provide feedback to the users to let them know what is happening, avoiding that the users become too anxious.

For console-based applications, usually, a cursor may appear blinking, but that does not give feedback on whether the current application is running well.

This package implements a better solution by showing the cursor changing its character, so it appears to be animated. This can give the users a better feeling by letting them know that the application is running.

The package implements a solution that uses a parallel process to animate the cursor character, so the application does not have to stop its main job to update the cursor animation.
