Well I haven’t blogged for a bit, so im hoping to do some catch up today. Since working in the business world, I find you never have time to write libraries for everything you want your application to do, and why would you when there are excellent classes out there that do just what you need to, have community + developer support so you do not need to worry about any bugs within your system. Then with all this, it frees up your time so you can spend time working on the things that matter.
So with this in mind, i read an article about 30 useful classes and components, and I recommend checking out half these items. Personally my favorite is HTML Purifier as its a must have to prevent XSS injection attacks + cleaning up user submitted code.
